12:42 pm
expected to get above freezing anytime soon. sioux park is the number one attraction. the water drops 100 feet. the freezing temperatures across the country have caused at least a dozen deaths so far. in fill if i, the city is bracing for several inches of snow. >> joining us live is meteorologist scott williams from fox 29 and scott, not just the snow, but you guys are expecting like 30, 40, 50 mile an hour wind gust out there. >>reporter: absolutely. good afternoon, mike and allie. we're bracing for blizzard conditions for the delaware beaches here and also for the jersey shore. this storm system has already begun taking shape along the carolina coastal sections dumping snow as far as charleston and savannah. that system is moisture loaded right now over the gulf stream waters. it has been antarctic blast here in philadelphia for the past week. temperatures have been below freezing so that cold
12:43 pm
polar air mass merging with that storm system over the gulf waters will create the bomogensis. we're talking 24 millibar pressure drops within 24 hours. so when the pressure drops, the storm intensifies and the winds become stronger as well. blizzard warnings will go into effect for part of our area. so that means we do anticipate the visibility to be reduced less than a quarter of a mile and winds gusting over 35 mile-per-hour for a long duration period so that will classify it as a blizzard for us. here in philadelphia, anticipating two to as much as six inches and for the delaware beaches and jersey shore, some locations could see over ten inches before all is said and done. this thing is going to
12:44 pm
race up the eastern seaboard and cape cod could experience hurricane-forced gust. and that will be over 74 miles-per-hour. we anticipate over tropical storm -- over 39 mile-per-hour. hurricane hunters are scheduled to fly into this system to kind of assess its rapid an at thises if i cajun and get a better handle on how close it will track to our coastline. guys, back over to you. >> scott real quick, how are people preparing for something like this? are they preparing like you would a hurricane boarding up window or is it getting extra snow plows out. >> the salt plow trucks are out and folk was stocking up on the typical milk and also the bread it is grocery stores, but we're used to northeasters in this part of the country. so they're preparing how they would for any type of northeaster or coastal
12:45 pm
storm or hurricane. absolutely. >> scott, meteorologist steve po you. this is one of those ones where you pick a model and go. there's been westward drift in some of those especially the gfs, are you concerned about that? six inches of snow could be double that. are you concerned with that? >> the latest model guidance has continued to trend a little further to the west, so in fact we're still working on our snow fall totals kind of massaging them, but we're increasing they will for the philadelphia area and also for the jersey shore because of that track a little further to the west. but i mean it's not set in stone that's why we get the latest computer model guidance in later this evening and that will help us better kind of fine tune the system. but i know it's going to rapidly intensify so that concerns me and also a lot of moisture with this system. we're watching all the moisture kind of evolve to our south, so that gibbs us an indication that we could be
12:46 pm
dealing with snow fall rates for a time. maybe as much as two, three, inches per hour, so that will definitely impact some of the totals that we see, but not out of the question that some of us could see half a foot to as much as a foot in parts of our immediate area here in the philadelphia vicinity. >> in sunny california, there's a lot of talk in our news room about the word bomb cyclone. have you ever heard -- have you used this on-air before? >> yes, absolutely. so it's not an uncommon term. it means it's going to rapidly intensify within a 24 hour window. so those pressure drops are going to occur over 24 millibars and that transitions to stronger winds and also a stronger storm, so i mean this is a textbook scenario basically that's going to unfold for the earn seaboard as it bombs out so there's that
12:47 pm
sharp bara clinic zone and that's the contrast between the cold polar air interacting with the -- that will allow the storm to bomb out. a lot of us in the weather world are geeking out over this powerful event that will take shape the next 24 to 48 hours. >> very non technical is a snow hurricane. >> they're not just flying in the hurricanes, they're flying into this which is unusual. can you get me on that? >> absolutely. i mean, we're -- they're basically going to fly in so they can assess how fast it's intensifying and look at the pressure drops and that will help us better prepare for how much snow we're going to see and how strong the winds are going to get. they'll put all of that data into the various computer models that will use to give us a better guidance as to, are we
12:48 pm
going to see over ten inches of snow or are those winds going to gust over 50 miles-per-hour for some in our viewing area in the jersey shore. >> scott williams, we appreciate your time and have a safe rest of the week for you and everyone there in philadelphia. >> all right, thank you. >> steve. your thoughts on that. >> that was good key talk. >> he's into it. >> he's talking about good stuff. >> non technical stuff. >> he made a good point on the national hurricane. they're flying in. but what he meant is also there's some deepening of this system, i'm not going to get too technical of 29 millibars. this is incredibly deep, so that's the -- the key is a lot of wind and the question is how close does it move to the west? that makes a difference between a -- >> and here we're trying to get an inch of rain. >> it's all or nothing out here. that was good stuff by scott. we have temperatures you can
12:49 pm
