have been, some folks out and about are wearing extra layers and just we saw folks getting off the bus not too long ago and they were rushing to get where they had to go but still not too many people up at this hour, of course, and if you can stay in and stay warm leave a little bit later as late as you can and start your car up, it is always good to have one of those remote starters. that is always a good, good investment. that way you don't to have sit in your car freezing and as you warm up that type of thing but again, just the story right now just really light snow flakes here in wilmington delaware but that will change in a bit, back to you you. >> dave kinchen please stay warm. no gloves. really dave, what is it, 18 degrees. >> he has ear muffs. >> reporter: earmuffs are there. my hand are warm. it is the microphone. strange enough it is pretty warm. >> well, stay warm.

snow, thin through the afternoon especially early afternoon when we will accumulation whatever we are going to get but you see this rain moving from the south and then by seven or 8:00 o'clock we have made our change over it seems to rain. tricky part will be where you see this pink north and west of the city, where we expect the wintry mix of precipitation which means it could be icy. luckily red ways have been treated so hopefully travel will be okay but take your time. then by tomorrow morning we have change over to rain, light rain in the morning, heavy rain in the early afternoon and then look at this by 2:00 o'clock very heavy rain moving through. so an inch, maybe 2 inches of rain in the forecast, for tomorrow, and big difference in temperature which we will show you right now in the seven day forecast. so, we're expecting yeah, maybe one to 2 inches of snow before the change over to rain and here we go 35 today eventually, and we're only in the teens right now, 56 for a
high tomorrow, after the rain end, and we will end up with temperatures that are more seasonal on wednesday with a high of 46. little chillier then that on thursday and then temperatures bounce backup in the mid 50's, but bob kelly, it does seem like we did get that brining on the road yet which is a good thing. >> that is a good thing, definitely. new jersey dot, dell dot and penndot put down that salt brine solution yesterday. the here's an example what is coming our way starting to creep up in to south jersey, a live look at route nine down the shore as you can see quick as the flakes start to form they will start to form that light coating, an top of the road surface. rolling out of the driveway and make your way throughout the day depending upon where you begin and end your trip road conditions will change. live look at the southern end of the new jersey turnpike right here near delaware memorial bridge. an example of that storm coming up from the south, delaware through dover, dover air force base, and, then
southern new jersey, down the shore, starting to see the first coating of snow on the road surface. here's i-95 in delaware county no snow flakes just yet so that is good news. i think we will have a light rush hour, as compared to a normal rush hour but what scares me is that everybody is off from work. the kid are off from school. cabin fever what do you want to do lets get out of the house. that will happen late are this morning. we will be driving around with the light dusting on the road surface and things will be slippery. bennie looking good. in problems there. a new pattern for gang coming from the 42 freeway in bellmawr, new jersey, put that in effect over the weekend and then jenny has been reporting live all morning long saturday morning's fire there in the frankford section, icy conditions, griscom at orthodox. orthodox is that main drag coming from the boulevard heading down in the neighborhood. watch for icy conditions and
