looking at our radar. we want to mention in new hampshire it is not snowing right now but is there some on the way for today, new hampshire primary taking place today. the eventually what we're seeing here in our area will make its way up there but we're concerned about getting where we need to go today. we have been watching kent county delaware, rain, to snow, to rain at least on the radar. we're mostly he seeing snow in that area but temperatures arer side of freezing. we have got pockets of heavy rain down in southern delaware, around georgetown, lewis is getting rain and then it is probably light snow along the jersey shore. including atlantic city. steve, i don't think it is necessarily just sea spray, i think you have actual precipitation there. it is showing up as snow on radar. we do expect some of this to
5:46 am
sneak in the philadelphia area before the morning is through, and when you get snow you could get quick accumulation of snow, maybe an insurance or so and maybe some poor visibility for a while and then there will be a lull and then there will be rain or snow. this pattern continues through the rest of the day. we think by the evening rush hour, there could be, what the bulk of whatever we will end up getting during the evening rush. so that could be challenging later on in the day, even on and off throughout the rest of the evening and nighttime we do expect the snow to continue, probably gone for good after 7:00 o'clock tomorrow morning, at least that is what we have going on right now. it is a very complicated storm. so snowfall totals when all is said and done through tomorrow morning three to 6 inches in this darker area of blue, two to four almost every where else. jersey shore may not see any accumulation, or light accumulation, and, and, winter storm warnings where you see pink, winter weather advisory every where else. a quick look the at the seven
5:47 am
day forecast showing after we are finished with this mess tomorrow morning we will start getting cold, and colderrer, and colder so by the weekend we are talking about high temperatures in the 20's. below zero wind chills overnight, so bob kelly, maybe my froid slip was right. >> all morning long. good morning, everybody. it will be a situation where the road conditions are going to change as the day goes on. not just today but all the way through this cuddling up weekend. here's a live lot 4592 freeway. we have the new jersey dot crews out there they have put down that layer of salt. here's a live lot at the blue route, penndot, they have put down the brine yesterday. salt crews are waiting in the wings but so far they are just napping, at least for the moment, and for the gang down in maryland, this is right outside of chapel road here, again, roads are just wet, but again, with the temperatures hovering right around that freezing mark, things could be slippery for the beginning of
5:48 am
our morning rush hour. no problems on the schuylkill but guess what today is. >> fastnacht day. >> we are looking for white stuff in the form of snow but take a look at the size of the cream doughnuts that my gang from holmesberg bakery sent to us today. they sent us a box of the fastnachts which are the fried doughnuts, and then the cream doughnuts, um, um. i only had a half one because i didn't want to have it all down the front of me. speedometer readings in the the 50's on 422, 202, pennsylvania turnpike, just watch it on a lot of the on and off ramps. again, what you don't see is what will get you in the most trouble and this will be the little patch of ice with the wet roads. new jersey turnpike clocking in at 50 miles an her speed restriction up and down the pike there and all of the bridges running with speed restrictions as well. receipts go outside to jen, roaming around this morning. jen, you are on your way to west chester, aren't you.
5:49 am
>> yes, i am, and i have been to the holmesberg bakery and i love everyone of their fastnachts. see here's the situation, it is 31 degrees. we continue on west chester pike. check this out, bob. we have recently went over, 202, as you can see we are crossing over the chester county hospital. it is exactly as you have been reporting. the the road are a little bit wet but certainly they are fine to drive on, and again, we have mentioned it is 31 degrees, because obviously when you look at these slick areas is there a potential for a little bit of ice. i can tell you this jared our very carable, receive driver hasn't encountered too much ice. road crews have been out all night prepping these surfaces. the major rose you want see the snowplows, they are there, they have been treating the road and they are prepared for whatever happens next. it is same type of situation we're seeing on these side
5:50 am
roads. so again, we are in west chester, or chester county and we really want to see the what the roads look like. you see a little bit of shining, i don't know if it is the light. it is wet here but certainly not icy. but again that can all change. 31 degrees. sue serio says this storm will change hour by hour, the good news this car can go hour and hour once we fill it up with gas. my kid, they put ice cubes in the toilet and they turn the pajamas inside out, and they put up a spoon in their pillow. when brody was in third grade, mrs. gilbert told him that is how you get the a snow day. >> i haven't heard that one yet. >> they will be mad at me because i refused to turn my pajamas inside out the because i was already in bed.
5:51 am
>> oh, well. >> that is cute. >> jen, thank you. >> let's talk beyonce. she's in a center of controversy. >> rudy guiliani says america deserves decent, wholesome, entertainment. his word, right instead of what she had to offer. >> beyonce performed on sunday's super bowl half time show. she took the field, surrounded by dancers sporting afros and black braids. many believed the performance was a reference to the black panter party and the black lives matter movement. guiliani ripped apart her performance calling it an outrageous attack on police officers. >> i thought it was outrageous that she used it as a forum to attack police officers who are the people that protect her and protect us and keep us alive, and all we should be doing in the have african-american community and all community is bill up respect for police officers. >> well, beyonce said she
5:52 am
anticipated this. she knew backlash was coming with the release of her new single formation. >> here's the deal, yesterday in the group chat we were all chatting about this new video. i told you, it is a lot that came with it. >> correct. >> one of my girlfriends say that she learned from a former boss of hers that we have to learn to be comfortable with the uncomfortable. >> correct. >> we say that all the time in our group chat. is there so many topics that are uncomfortable to talk bit: beyonce is like, this pop superstar with tons of money. i think she's saying i'm not that far removed from these issues that we are dealing with on a daily basis. yes, i have money, yes, i'm a main stream artist but i have seen the issues happening whether it is hurricane katherine, the black lives matter movement, the flint, michigan situation. she is just being normal. >> just by the very color of her skin you now she grew up with racism, in the face of it growing up in the south. >> that is part of who she is,
5:53 am
she has become something entirely different which is enormously wealthy and fame bus she had to deal with that. >> correct, she is saying i'm not coming that far. >> i don't think her performance to me was i slap in the face to anybody. i think her performance was just what it was, she performed her new song and when you see video i think it gives you more perspective as to the word behind it and what it means, so maybe that is what he was offended by. >> i wouldn't call it the outrageous. >> i was offended by chris martin trying to act cool, trying to, be cool. >> at least taraji called him adam le vine. a group of police officers went above and beyond what they did, to deliver to kid in the neighborhood to make sure they had some fun.
