tv NBC10 News Today at 6am NBC February 5, 2016 6:00am-7:01am EST
nbc 10 first alert weather breaking news. a winter storm is here. take a look at this live picture. this is evesham, burlington county, where wet snow is falling. at times it will come down hard and fast depending on where you are. this is creating wet roads and poor visibilities for your commute. >> a live look now at philadelphia. this is a morning event. the snow will start to taper off a little bit later. the temperatures aren't too cold. don't expect a lot of the snow to stick. here's a look at it. take a look at the first alert radar. we've been tracking it through the night. the storm is different depending on where you are in terms of accumulation. we have teams all across pennsylvania, new jersey and delaware. 6:00 a.m. good morning. this is "nbc 10 news today." i'm tracy davidson. >> i'm vai sikahema. this is going to be different depending on where you live. as for the timing of all of this, the trouble will be during the morning commute. we want to stress that.
right now philadelphia schools are open on time but in the past half hour we've gotten 30 school delays, including lower marion school district. we have a complete list on our nbc 10 app.ç speed restrictions are in place on several roads, including 495 in delaware both north and southbound. there are several cancellations at philadelphia international airport. this morning we have team coverage from our team of first alert meteorologists. let's start with chief meteorologist glenn "hurricane" schwartz who is tracking what's happening right now. you said some of this is more leak a spring snow? >> yes, that's right. we have marginal temperatures, 32 degrees or higher with the snow, the flakes are big, wet, sticky type of snow. totally different type of snowflakes than what we saw with the blizzard. it's a totally different setup. we're not about to get hit by any kind of monster storm or anything. look, there are accidents every morning when it's raining.
the roads are wet. there will be issue even with wet roads. take it easy as you go in. let's see what it looks like. we have reduced visibility in at least parts of the area where the snow is coming down a little bit harder than in others. this is outside the station here. at city avenue. the lower right is more of a side road, a little bit of snow accumulating there. in the parking lot, i'm 95 south, visibility is still decent. we can see the lights in the distance. the cars moving okay. that's around indication of the main highway but as you saw with cyndey in evesham township, this could stick. the darker the blue is, the heavier the snow. we have little bands where it gets heavier. we had a heavier band go through
abington a little while ago. now it's picked up again a little. the more significant snow is in new jersey. there we are at evesham township. if anything, the snow will taper off in the next few minutes as you can see on the radar. >> we've been going neighborhood by neighborhood. i'm focusing in on the philadelphia area right now. you can see the snow is coming down. the future radar shows that will continue well into the commute, at 7:30, the snow may lighten up but the temperatures, they're getting colder. that will lead to more accumulation, primarily on grassy surfaces. much of this area are now seeing grass covered with snow and you're probably going to need some time to clear your car off this morning. that, too, is a colder surface like the grass that's been sitting out all night. that cools faster than the roadways. by 9:00, snowç comes to an end
and the temperatures will be climbing. we'll be in the upper 30s, low 40s as we break through the snow and get sunshine. by then, the accumulation will have occurred on the grassy surfaces. it's snowing now, light accumulation of 1 to 2 inches, delaware county and into philadelphia. farther northeast you can expect to see more snow on the grassy surfaces. it's all coming in, between 9:00 and 11:00. stand by for a snowy commute and the temperatures that will be hovering just above that freezing mark. we could see slippery conditions on the side streets, some of them are snow covered though it's not much snow right now. by 11:00 we'll be drying out. at 2:00, the temperature, 41 degrees. keeping a closer eye on the traffic scene, first alert traffic reporter jessica boyington. >>
that's right, bill. we are moving into new jersey right now. mt. laurel on 295, right around route 38. we're starting to see some accumulation on the roadways.
where the cars are moving through, you can see the snow is beginning to stick on the shoulders. the majors are starting to see that accumulation, definitely in the center median and the shoulder. you want to watch the off ramp. as roadways are slippery, the conditions are messy. this is mans field township. we're starting to see accidents in. slow speeds earlier than normal. this is the new jersey northbound. there is an accident with left shoulder blocked right now. no huge delays but we also have reports of flooding. on this part of 95 northbound around route 291 where that flooding is, it's not a slow go. we want you to
go slow, again, around exit 13. vai. >> thank you, jessica. as our meteorologists overnight and through the morning have been telling us,
southern new jersey will get most of the snow this morning. >> right, 2 to 4 inches. cydney long is live in burlington county this morning. cydney? >> we are going to see it and feel it, a major change in the conditions. they have deteriorated since we saw you last. we have a layer of snow, a good coating of snow and slush out here on the roadways. it happened instantaneously, just as soon as we hit that mark here this morning. the salt and plow trucks are out. i just found out from burlington county, they have about 40 assets on the road. camden county has twice that many as their salt and plow operations. we told you the cars would be covered in snow. they are. we have aç good coating, aboutn inch on the ground as we speak. as you get up, this is what you can anticipate.
if if you can, go to school and work late so-to-allow the plow trucks to get out ahead of you. burlington county to philadelphia where the changeover to snow started before 4:00 this morning. it's already causing travel problems. >> katy zachry is live near 30th street station. you've been checking in with the airport, septa and amtrak. what are they telling you? >> the snow is coming down, the flakes are bigger, the wind has picked up, depending on what direction you're facing you could get peltd by the snow. even though the flakes are big and has a sleet-like consistency to it, it's not sticking to the pavements. amtrak not reporting any delays on the rails. philadelphia international, two new delays into their system and three flight cancellations. a quick look at the schuylkill
expressway, a penndot spokesperson told me last night in anticipation of the storm they brined the roadways and there are plows ready to plow as soon as the snow starts sticking. live outside 30th street, katy zachry, nbc 10 news. continuing coverage in our nbc 10 app. if you have to leave your home, still watch our continuing coverage on the app. when you open the app, there's a button that says watch live right now. it goes without saying, just don't do it while you're driving. now your nbc 10 first alert weather. >> a wet morning commute for most. as you saw, a few places do have slippier roads. morning rush is bad when even we have rain. the snow reduces the visibility, making it tougher for the morning drive. let's take a look at the radar.
we have heavier bands, the darker blues moving through parts of the philadelphia area, especially lower montgomery county. then across the river in new jersey, along 295 where cydney long has been in evesham township. abington, we've seen little bursts of heavier snow. the temperature marginal in some of the northern suburbs. heavier snow coming up through kent county, delaware. that goes up to dover into cumberland county. there's the evesham township where the snow should beç tapering off in just a matter of minutes. the wider view shows the back end of this system in the lower left-hand portion of your screen. it's a limited area. it's moving fairly quickly. sunrise is about to occur. the sun's rays will help melt things as well. it takes a low visibility to produce a heavy snow, enough to cause more significant accumulation. there's mt. holly, less than a
mile now. again, that's accumulating snow. millville with the lowest visibility. that means the heaviest snow in the area. this is more of a new jersey issue than a delaware or pennsylvania issue. the temperatures are marginal, 36 in philadelphia now, near the freezing mark in much of the rest of the area. let's head over to meteorologist bill henley with more on what to expect. >> glenn, we're taking a closer look at burlington county where cydney long reported deteriorating conditions. there's evesham township. the heavier snow just passed through there. there's more snow on the way as the temperatures fall. still above freezing as you mention, glenn, in philadelphia. it has dropped to 33 degrees in pennsauken and audubon. haddonfield at 32 degrees this morning. it is a cold start for voorhees and glenn gloria. you'll see accumulating snow not just on the grassy surfaces but
the had irsure faurs -- harder . by 7:30, the snow is still coming down and still accumulating. though starting to lighten up in salem county and it is steadier in tabernacle. the snow continues through the morning. it is mainly a moderate to light snowfall, especially farther to the west. by 9:30 in the morning, we could see tapering off already in the salem area. there's still snow in store for millville and tabernacle. you can expect to see 2 to 4 inches on the ground in burlington county, into camden and gloucester counties and cumberland county in that 2 to 4 inch zone. isolated amounts could go even higher than that. when we come back, take a closer look at the northern and western suburbs and get you through the morning commute.
>> rather dangerous out there. >> we have a bank of cameras that jessica boyington watching to check on the conditions. she's focused on the schuylkill expressway. >> that's right, schuylkill expressway around south street, starting to see slowdowns on the eastbound side. westbound doing okay right now. roadways are primarily wet. give yourself extraç time befo you head out the door. we move over to new jersey, west hampton township, there's reports of a jackknifed tractor-trail tractor-trailer, west hampton township. 6:12. our continuing team coverage on this winter storm. we have more crews across the tri-state region. we are checking on the road conditions. skyforce 10 is on route 9 in gwyneth township. sign up for school closing alerts, we can e-mail you or text you when your school is

now your nbc 10 first alert weather. 6:16 and 35 degrees through most of the delaware valley. a first alert is in effect because of accumulating wet snow moving through our area. we have more than 30 school delays running at the bottom of your screen. make that 40. speed restrictions are in place on several roads, including area bridges. if you do run into problem spots,ette us know about it, tweet us using #nbc 10 snow. let's get you updated as the snow moves through with glenn "hurricane" schwartz. glenn? >> it's more of an issue in new jersey than it is in pennsylvania, in general, as you'll see.
take a look at some of the cameras. right outside our studios, might in the parking lot. in the lower right is monument road, a side road which is partially snow covered. but traffic is still moving fine. i-95 in south philly. we can still see the lights in the far distance. the visibility is not low enough to cause more significant problems on the roads. because the temperature is above freezing in philadelphia. you can see on the radar, the left side of your screen, it's breaking up a little bit. we're seeing lighter blue colors, we're see something areas with just the map color. that is the system winding down from west to east. the darker colors are clearly in new jersey for the most part. we see one(b@nd going through parts of bucks county, lower montgomery, even in philadelphia and camden and gloucester.
there's one going right through abington, cheltenham about to get a little burst of heavier rain, northampton, bucks county about to get some of that. you can see the heavier area near milford. delaware moving across delaware bay into cumberland county and that area in evesham township that was much darker blue, now a little bit lighter. that's where cydney long has been. the back edge of the storm, as you can see in the lower left, it's a relatively small system and moving quickly. it's not going to last all day. .visibility is less than two miles in some places. that's where the snow is heavy enough to accumulate on grassy surfaces. not in reading or allentown. no visibility restrictions. that is the reason it's not going to accumulate there. temperatures are above freezing in philadelphia and along the i-95 area, near freezing elsewhere.
meteorologist bill henley has more on what to expect. >> you mentioned the lightning up north. this is the first area that saw snow when it changed from rain this morning. as temperatures have been running colder at the freezing mark for blue bell and lafayette hill. same story in collegeville and eagleville and farther to the northwest. just above freezing in gill bertsville and pottstown. that's one of the indications that the snow is much lighter. the snow will continue for much of the morning commute. by 7:00, 7:50 we start to see it taper off. steady snow in the trenton area by 8:00, 9:00, we'll see the snow start to come to an end. utah will see snow, it will be much lighter at 9:00 and then done by later this morning. very light snowfall north and west up to an inch. 1 to 2 inches for lower montgomery and bucks county. a snowy commute, the heaviest before 8:00 and then it wraps up between 8:00 and 10:00. by then, portions of lower bucks
county and mercer county could see 2 to 4 inches of snow. a closer look at what's going on at the shore. that's the one spot that should get the most snow out of this system when i come back in just a few minutes. 6:20 on a good day, 95 is problematic at this hour. >> nbc 10 first alert traffic reporter jessica boyington is watching 95 and other roads for your morning commute. >> 59 seeing big backups. we're looking like we're seeing a backup as well. just a moment ago we were, now we're not. you can see how things change northbound side as well. we're seeing this southbound side, a string of brake lights. the roadways are clearly wet.ç seven-minute increase so far, southbound woodhaven road to the vine street expressway. average speeds now are crawling. they're in the 40s. this is around cottman avenue, no major incidents to report there, though. here's the 42 freeway. we have reports of a vehicle that has spun out on the northbound side. we are seeing a small increase if we're heading to the area
bridges from 55 to the walt whitman bridge. over in new jersey in west hampton township, a jackknifed tractor-trailer reported on 295 around rancocath. the wet snow is coming down hard and it's making for poor visibility. >> let's check in now with nbc 10's drew smith who is in stormforce 10. drew, you're in new castle county, south of wilmington, is that right? >> yes, that's right, vai and tracy. we just passed the airport, actually. we have a lot of company out here. a lot of people are commuting to work this morning. there's a lot of water on the roads. even on the right side, take a look. there's some slush starting to build up over in the travel lanes closest to that grassy area that you now see is covered in snow. we're heading south and we'll check in with you in just a
little bit. live in new castle county, drew smith, nbc 10 news. 6:21 and 35 degrees. that temperature will drop as we get further into the morning. our winter storm coverage continues. we'll still check in with nbc 10's cydney long, she's in burlington county, new jersey and rosemary connors is live in philadelphia. >> we are monitoring the road conditions as they change. here's a live look at the mid-county toll plaza in montgomery county. we're also watching mass transit. septa has said be careful on the platforms as they may be slippery. an update on that coming up at 6:30. this nbc 10 first alert winter weather update is brought to you by buckmans, your cold weather experts.
right around the delaware memorial bridge. you can see the snow is coming down there. some accumulation over into the shoulders. roadways are definitely slippery and wet. because of this we have speed restrictions from this point "t!ridge up to exit 12 around rahway. we have other speed restrictions in other areas. i'll go over them when i come back. >> thanks, jessica. we're seeing on the latest radar changes in this system right now. i'll draw a line there and to the left of that line, the system is already winding down. to the right of the line, we still are in more significant snow. that includes parts of montgomery and bucks counties, philadelphia and delaware county. it's tapering off in parts of extreme northern delaware and new jersey is the main focus of this system right now.
>> 6:26 on this first friday of february. stay with us this morning. we're in the first alert throughout the morning. the winter storm is here dropping anywhere from an inch to four across the tri-state region. here's a live look at burlington county. this is evesham township where the snow is coming down. it's sticking to the ground as you can see, and on the roads. we're checking on the airport, septa and amtrak. our winter storm coverage continues right here on "nbc 10 news today."
expressway where it's not sticking to the roads but the snow could create low visibility. penndot tells us they have 185 trucks out. we're checking with septa, amtrak and the airports to help get you out the door. we have a first alert because of the snow. as you can see from the live look at the radar, the shade of blue is the heavier stuff falling across the area. welcome to "nbc 10 news today." i'm vai sikahema. >> i'm tracy davidson. if you're just waking up, a lot has changed over the past hour. we just heard from the philadelphia school district. they are open and on time. but in the past half hour, the number of delayed openings that we have coming into our system has doubled. there are now more than 66 across the area, including penn delco and the princeton school district. we have a complete list onç ou nbc 10 app. we checked with our power companies. the biggest issue is in gloucester county where there are about 1,000 customers without power.
we also have speed restrictions. do be careful if you're heading out the door. >> we have you covered from every angle. first we go to chief meteorologist glenn "hurricane" schwartz with us. >> this system seems more serious in new jersey than in pennsylvania or extreme northern delaware. extreme southern delaware is in with the heavier snow, too. in the philadelphia area here, right outside the station, city avenue, main road, just wet. cars are traveling just fine. visibility is okay. but we've seen pictures in new jersey that are quite different. we're seeing holes in the radar. we need a salad area of blue with darker blue inside of that to be real significant snow. from wilmington westward, this is really tapering off out there and to the right of that line that you see, we still have a storm going on. it is tapering off.
chester county, northern new castle county on the left side of the screen, flurries compared to what's going on, even in philadelphia right now. and so that drier air starting to come in from the southwest and that may cut off the snow even more in philadelphia. and the temperatures above freezing here anyway. we're not really seeing the significant accumulation right in philadelphia itself. the temperatures generally above freezing in the city, marginal in the suburbs. meteorologist bill henley has more on that. >> it's all about location as you mention. it is going to be lightening up quickly north and west, the shore has hours of snowfall ahead. cape may is showing snow on the radar. on the ground, no accumulation yet. we've seen the temperatures come way down since we went on the air. we went on the air at 3:30 to cover this storm. it's now down to 33 at cape may
and the snow is falling. cape may courthouse is 33 degrees, woodbine is down to 33 degrees. what to expect, hour by hour, shows the snow coming down in hammonton, galloway, atlantic city, reaching into wildwood. the temperatures will be near freezing, cold enough on the surfaces for accumulation. by 10:00 in the morning, we'll see it lighten up. by 11:00, it starts to come to an end. by then, 2 to 4 inches will be on mainly grassy surfaces. it will make for low visibility and slippier roads as we go through the morning. when i come back in a few mçr'utes, we'll take a closer look at new jersey inland just outside philadelphia to monitor the conditions there. jessica boyington is following your first alert traffic. >> we're keeping an eye on new jersey here as well. there's a lot of slippier spots, accidents and speed restrictions as well. here's the garden state parkway. there's a possible entrapment
there as well around mile marker 7 over in cape may county. so no huge speed restrictions here at least because of that accident scene. the parkway is still is it in the green but speeds are lowered because of that. here's route 38 around nixon drive. you can see really reduced visibility in our camera lenses. you can see it blowing sideways past our camera at nixon drive in morristown. here's route 202 right around lime kill pike. you want to be careful around curves and off of the off ramps. >> all right, jessica, thanks for that. 6:35 right now. mott rad to wet, heavy snow and low visibility is what we've been warning you about. >> which is what is happening in south jersey right now. cydney long, it's been coming down pretty hard for about around hour. you've seen accumulation already. >> a little better than an hour,
tracy. reduce your speed and use caution is the alert i just saw on nj511.org. we show you route 70 about 5:15 this morning. it was wet. remember i was stomping in the puddles. now it is coated with a thick blanket of snow. you can see the drivers moving through. they are using caution. it began sticking as soon as we hit the freezing mark. we have seen police out at the tolls as well as salt trucks on the moves, both on the roadways, also, across the street at the shoprite. if you can delay that ride to work or school, certainly not a bad idea as this snow piles up. that's exactly when the morning traffic will be piled up. really a good idea to use added caution. it is messy out here. that is the latest, live in marlton, cydney long, nbc 10
news. meanwhile, the snow has been falling for several hours in center city. >> nbc 10's rosemary connors is live at broad and walnut. do you have accumulation on the grassy surfaces? >> we don't, vai and tracy, it's starting to look and feel more like rain at least in the past five, ten minutes or so than what we saw anç hour ago. on broad street, traffic is moving just fine. the roads are clear. nothing has stuck to the ground. that's the good news here for drivers. we've been checking in with the philadelphia streets department and they tell us they're alerting everybody to a winter weather advisory that's in effect through the morning. they are treating the roads as necessary. so far, so good. philly schools are on time and on schedule. they want to remind students to walk to school, use caution on the sidewalks because they may be slick. >> reporting live in center city, i'm rosemary connors, nbc 10 news. now your nbc 10 first alert weather.
>> it is a snowy scene. we've issued a first alert. we're issued a first alert for the accumulating snowfall that's coming down in the area and going to be continuing for the rest of the morning commute in some areas. it's really coming down in south philadelphia. this is 95. it started snowing here just after 2:30 this morning and the snow, not really sticking to the major roads. there's a lot of traffic. that will keep them clear. many of the side streets, grassy surfaces, cars sitting out overnight are seeing the accumulation. it's starting to taper off to the west. you can see wilmington starting to get a break from the snowfall. while it's still coming down in limerick, snow snow. into philadelphia and northern burlington county where cydney long is, that's where we're seeing the steadier, heavier snowfall this morning. the snow will continue for the next couple hours in the
philadelphia area. it will continue at the shore where the temperatures are in the 30s and later this morning, that's when we'll see the snow come to an end. the heaviest ams still expected at the shore. inland we'll see lighter amounts. delaware, central and southern delaware, 2 to 4 inches of snow, especially farther to the north in the the inland areas. this is where we're seeing steadier snowfall. the grassy surfaces will wind up with 2 to 4 inches. some spots, there are bands that come through heavier, locally higher amounts are possible. for philadelphia, grass is covered in much of the immediate philadelphia area, especially in the suburbs, not so much in center city where rosemary connors is reporting. 1 to 2 inches possibly, mainly on grassy surfaces. there are roads covered. even farther to the north, there is covering of the roads.
conditions are improving rapidly. they're barely snow coming down in reading and allentown. the lower the visibility, p heavier the snow. you can see it under a mile now in mt. holly. that's steadier and heavier snowfall there. it has deteriorated in millville. they're reporting half a mile visibility. it still comes down there. it will be accumulating. in philadelphia, look how quickly it moves out. by late this morning, we'll see vastly improving conditions for the i-95 corridor into burlington county. the snow will still be coming down into the later morning hours but tapering off as well. the temperatures will be climbing. there's a possibility before the day is done we'll see breaks of sunshine. we still have the commute to get through. more accumulating snow. we'll have a look at the futurecast, to show you the exact time that snow will be moving out when we come back in just a few minutes. 20 minutes before :00. folks are trying to get out on
the roads to get to work and to school. let's look at 76 now. >> first alert traffic reporter jessica boyington has that. >> i just had to check in with the schuylkill expressway to check in with the drive times. we are seeing major slowdowns, especially westbound. look at the cameras around city avenue. a big slowdown. we're up to about a 20-minute drive time. here's westampton township. we're starting to see big slowdowns in all of the majors, even without the added volume and accident in area. we have a vehicle that spun out on the 42 freeway, big slowdowns in either direction. that's abnormal for the southbound side. we're seeing that with added accumulation of snow. route 42 around the black horse pike is where the vehicle spun out. approaching that see, it's a little bit slow also. here's route 73 in berlin around jackson road. this is a common picture around a lot of the intersections. snow covering those. crews have started to treat
the roads now that the changeover has moved through. we passed a salt truck in cheltenham township, montgomery county. if you don't have the nbc 10 p app, download it right now. it's the easiest way for you to get information you may need. get live interactive radar and traffic information. >> we're starting to get school closings into the newsroom. it went from 69 to 75 in a matter of seconds. there's an easy way to find out if your child's school is closed. sign up on nbc10.com. we'll send you a text or e-mail. let's take a look at cape may. beach avenue, remember this winter storm is about timing. it's moving. we'll start to see more snovç i the northwest. snow will continue to taper off. it's not really going to stick to the roads.
now your nbc 10 first alert weather. >> i'm drew smith in stormforce 10. we are heading south on route 1 in new castle county, delaware. in the middle, there is no snow on the travel lanes. deldot has travelled this road. on the side, a lot of accumulation is there. we do want to warn you, some of the ramps and overpasses are slippery, more so than the roads that have been treated. be careful if you're heading out. live in stormforce 10, dry smith, nbc 10 news. now your nbc 10 first alert weather. >> as drew just showed you, the
snow has become much lighter in new castle county, delaware. that's a sign of changes in this system. you can see actually the holes. you can see the map color in parts of delaware right now and it's really winding down from west to east. we still have significant snow falling from philadelphia eastward, including lower bucks county and the southern portion of montgomery county. the darker the blue, the heavier the snow. it's still coming down at a decent rate in philadelphia. the farther west you go, look at that, that is the edge of this system. just about to come into smyrna, delaware. not that far away from dover. the visibility in dover has improved. it's winding down there. but it's still pretty significant across the river in new jersey and in camden, gloucester counties, northern burlington county, it's coming down hard enough to continue to accumulate. also toward the shore we still have, perhaps, a number of hours
left of the snow there. you can see the whole system winding down from top to bottom. the visibility tells us how heavy the snow is. coatesville, pottstown, quakertown, visibility has gone up, the snow accumulation is pretty much cut off. philadelphia, blue bell, doylestown, the visibility is up a little. mt. holly, still getting signhvicant accumulating snow. wilmington, dover, high visibility, not accumulating but georgetown, delaware, sussex county still getting it and at the jersey shore, we have atlantic city having near one-mile visibility. the temperatures are marginal. they are above freezing. they have stayed above freezing from wilmington to philadelphia to northeast philly to trenton. and that keeps the roads just wet. meteorologist bill henley has more on what to expect, next. >> glenn, we are watching the heavier band move you tlog the mt. holly area, evesham township
has seen steady and accumulating snow as well. it is quickly tapering off north and west. it's going to take some time for parts of new jersey to see that same happen as it is colder in parts of new jersey. camden county, haddonfield below freezing. that's allowing accumulation there. we'll see higher snow totals in interior, new jersey. what to expect. it's quickly tapering off already. steady snowfall at 7:30 in the morning. tabernacle, will be tapering off through the morning. we're looking at accumulations of 2 to 4 inches, this is wet snow. mainly grassy surfaces, not just grassy surfaces. you'll have to deal with roads, especially secondary roads and side streets that are snow covered this morning. we will get low visibility to
