6:18 pm
closely, they have not dropped in the last hour, chester springs, kennett square 31, right on the edge but we're not talking about a hard freeze here. we're barely getting below 32. 31 in pottstown, 30 in doylestown, where they are finally getting snow. it's above freezing throughout delaware, and throughout the southern half of new jersey. and may stay that way during the night. there is rain to the south, snow to the north and the darker blue indicating a little heavier snow. it's not real dark blue like we had during the blizzard but from abington up to hatfield, down into north east philly betting a burst of the snow. and as we go through new jersey and waterford and tabernacle and down toward portions of burlington county, we've got that band coming through there going right up toward ocean county and then this area going into salem county, new castle county getting some. back to the west it's tapering
6:19 pm
off. so this is not going to last all night like this. actually raining pretty hard down in parts of delaware bay. look at the system. if you added this up and put it together, it would make a monster storm, wouldn't it. it didn't get together, we never thought it would get to together baugs it was too big and disorganized. but some places got decent amount of snow. and it's not over. over 4 inches, delaware 2, philly airport about a half inch before that little burst came through right around 5:00. to see the visibility is lowers in pottstown a half mile coming down pretty good at that rate. coatesville up to one mile. down to a quarter mile and so that snow has let up a little. and in wilmington it's accumulating at less than one mile visibility. northeast philly down to one mile as well. as we go through the night tonight, the temperature not dropping very much.
6:20 pm
that will help us out for the morning rush. that's for sure. now as we go through the night tonight we've got periods of snow, mainly melting, 31 for the low in philadelphia, barely going below freezing. 28 north and west. so slick spots in some of the areas that got significant snow. clouds and sun tomorrow, a windy day, gusts up to 30 miles an hour. then it gets colder every day. for thursday, friday, and then over the weekend that's the brutal cold. that's straight from siberia. we call it the siberian express. and the temperatures are single digits, wind chills below zero. >> not good. i'm john clark. the eagles close to a contract extension for fletcher cox? we have fletcher's take. cam newton says he is a sore loser.

6:25 pm
will not conform to what others want from him. >> we've got all these people that's condemning and saying oh, man, he should have did this, but what makes your way right? i mean, i've been on record to say i'm a sore loser. who likes to lose. you show me a good loser and i'll show you a loser. i'm not here to -- it's not a popularity contest. i'm here to win football games. >> the broncos, they had the parade in denver. look at the sea of orange. hundreds of thousands of fans there, they are a mile high. flyers hosting anaheim here trying to rebound from two losses. today the 50th anniversary of philly being awarded an nhl franchise here. >> mr. snyder comes to mind and what he's built, you know, this
