so yah, some winter weather heading our way today. winter weather advisory in effect for one to 2 inches of snow before things change over to rain. we're not expecting a big snow storm but it doesn't mean we went get a mess and i think it will happen as things change throughout the day-to-day. you will see rain, ice, snow, we will get a little bit of all of that throughout the course of the day but starts out as snow because it is so darn cold from the weekend. you know how cold it was over the weekend. now we are seeing brighter white, on radar spread nothing to kent county, sussex county, delaware. cape may county in new jersey. cumberland county, in new jersey as been will show you on this traffic camera. we will see wet roadways, nothing much though going on in the philadelphia area just yet but what we see isn't quite making it to the ground just yet. so future cast shows very spotty, snow flakes, throughout the morning, but i
4:45 am
think we will see something, and then by afternoon we will see enough to accumulate an inch or so. then we will get this icing period of six or 7:00 o'clock for the drive home for folks who are going home today and that is what really could be the tricky travel. before we change over to rain. do you see rain moving from south to north. overnight hours it is all rain and then it is a lot of rain, maybe in the in the morning tomorrow, as we get back to reality but by midday look at the this orange here, by 1:00 in the afternoon heavy rain could add up to an inch or two in places, and that could cause, some flooding. that will be our issue tomorrow. today, it is slippery travel, tomorrow will be rain, lots of it, by wednesday, we will blessedly dry out. so how much snow? we think north and west of the city for folks skiing today that will be fun, two to 3 inches. one to 2 inches of not so much fun travel throughout i-95. less of an inch south and east of us with those cold temperatures changing but it is in the teens right now.
4:46 am
the so it will be frozen precipitation for a while before we can inch up above freezing, wind chills in the single digits, keep that in mind if you go out early this morning. average high temperature is 44 . we will get above that tomorrow but yesterday's high was 20, so that was warmer then we were expecting but it was not a record yesterday with that cold, it was just cold, 35 degrees, today, as we see that change over to rain and then the overnight hours we will stay in the low to mid 30's. we have rain, nothing but rain, and high wind tomorrow, as well, and then we will dry out by wednesday, and then it gets milder, as we get in the weekend. by saturday and sunday we're talking about temperatures in the mid 50's both days but we have a lot of mess to get through, bob before we get there. >> beginning of the mess starts right here. we have as you just mentioned out here in south jersey, this is a live look at one of our new jersey dot cameras, route 47 and 347 coming out of
4:47 am
wildwood, rio grande and head back toward the city. we are seeing snowfall not only here in south jersey but up and down portions of that garden state parkway and covering delaware. it is starting to inch its way up and you can see exactly the scenario that is happening. the ground is so cold, that as the snow begins to fall, it will quickly stick and cover the road surface. the it will make things slippery as we begin our morning rush hour. northeast philadelphia, no flakes at all, everybody hitting the snooze button. this is a live look at princeton avenue in the great north east but penndot, new jersey dot, dell dot they have put down salt/brine solution yesterday and hopefully some of that salt left over from the last couple of storms. no problems on the freeway, we expect light volume morning rush hour, and it scares me that with the kid home from school folks are off and will get cabin fever by nine or 10:00 o'clock. the lets get out of the house and lets go do something
