>> ♪ >> we turn now to meteorologist adam joseph. you and the team following another snow event by no means one to sound the alarm about but snow nonetheless. >> snow going to fall periodically. there will be many periods where not much is happening. tomorrow i know a lot of people are going to write on twitter and facebook where is the snow you're talking about. it's going to come in waves over a long period of time so that's what we're tracking. as we take a look at double scan live radar not much happening right now. the clouds pretty thick out there and some rain and snow showers will start to develop a little later on this evening between about 9:00 and midnight. but temperatures, you could see generally are in the 40's across much of the area. much like that friday event when the snow comes in, that ground temperature has been a little on the warm side, so a lot of of it will melt on those already treated roads that have been treated with brine this afternoon. we have double barrel low pressure, one in the great lakes, one down to the south just to the west of richmond, virginia and these two will stay separate as they pivot through here the next 24 to 36
4:49 pm
hours but they'll try to link some energy, instability between the two of them and as you can see, the precipitation is very broken in nature and will stay that way as it passes through. so, at 10 o'clock tonight you start to see some of those snow showers developing with temperatures overall above that freezing point but light snow and on some of the sidewalks and some of the side streets that weren't treated could get a little slick late tonight early tomorrow morning but for the rush tomorrow we're looking at rain in far southern areas, a little bit of light snow lancaster parts of wilmington but much of the area during the morning rush tomorrow could be somewhat on the dry side and it could stay dry through much of the day. at 2 o'clock tomorrow afternoon temperatures in the upper 30's, so anything that falls during the day tomorrow should melt on most surfaces with the exception of maybe some of the grass. then future tracker at 10 o'clock tomorrow night, that's when we expect the steadiest round of some of that light snow to pivot
4:50 pm
through here and temperatures then staying right around or just above the freezing point but then that moves out in time for the morning rush on wednesday. the snow should end and then by lunchtime on wednesday we're back up to 40 with the sunshine returning in spots but the wind will start to kick up out of the north and west. so, when you take a look at these snow totals, this is late tonight through early on wednesday morning, one to three right on the edge of philadelphia off to the north lehigh valley, trenton, bucks county, most of montgomery county, three he to six lancaster chester delaware county, southern parts of philadelphia county and then down to atlantic city and millville and because of that mixing with rain only one to 3 inches down to the south but again, you look at these numbers, you may not see that much snow on the ground all at once. as we break it down for you, between tonight through dawn, only about a half an inch to an inch on average will fall. then between tuesday morning into the early afternoon, only an additional half an inch to an inch during the day tomorrow. then you get that period of a couple of inches of snow to

cecily you're taking a look from double scan radar this afternoon. >> that's right, sharrie. if you look at double scan you can see kind of a chaotic situation we have an area of rain and snow showers extending all the way from central pal out to the west. this is not a very well organized system. there's one low pressure right now that's basically west of buffalo. there's another one beginning to form over pennsylvania. what will happen, that low pressure moves off the coast and then these two low pressures kind of link up in the upper atmosphere. it's called an inverted trough and what that can do, it can provide extra lift, more moisture and that can set up an area of steadier snow. that being said, this is going to be coming kind of in drips and drabs. a winter storm warning is posted for the immediate philadelphia area and areas to the south. this is where we have the better chance of the higher snow accumulations. goes into evening a effect at mt through 6 o'clock wednesday morning. not going to be seeing snow then
