ship's engines. well, can you imagine? we had to dig out of that, more than 2 feet of snow on the ground in maine, resident had to apparently climb on their roofs to clear it off there, some towns have received 30 inches, and all of this snow fell on the heals of another storm that's dumped 19 . we did see at least a part of that here in our region. >> we did. it was mainly the winds that was the issue. you know, there is actually another storm about ready to hit maine? >> whoa! >> i don't think we will see any major storm. we will -- you're so funny, wait a second? >> i know, the weather is constantly evolving, but i still don't see any major storms in site for this legion. impact from that same storm, definitely two, separate pieces of the puzzle eventually will be lining up to bring us more wind later in the week here. but, by the time we hit the weaken we actually see that system long gone. nice warming trend. so something for everybody in this forecast, little up,
little down, and i want to walk you through everything. we start things off by taking you outside. yes, what i promise you, the sun shining nicely here up in northampton county look from hotel bethlehem, did i see the flags that are in the foreground there waiving ever so slightly, and gently in the breeze, there they go, right on q. we don't have any kind of major wind issues out there today. very far cry from what happened yesterday. i was asking on twitter what kind of crazy wind stories do you have from yesterday? i was at the gas station, the win literally slammed my car door shut as i was trying to push it open to get some gas. nut. i saw all of these garbage cans, just scattered all around the roadway, crazy. but thankfully that's over now. meanwhile, we do have that sunshine, still little bit of left over snow. there it is, still couple of piles of snow left over. here in bethlehem, in terms of snowfall, you know, we are, i guess you could say, at a deficit. thus far for this winter at 8 inches even in philadelphia, today, the season average is just shy, anyway, of 2 feet. last year, for the entire
season, we ended up with 27.5. but the bulk that far came from one big snowstorm that came, and end of january if you recall. so we could still ends up with big one that will send the totals into, you know, the teens, if not 20-inch range here, at this point i don't see is that in the near future, eventually a storm developing from two separate pieces of energy, so the first storm that came through yesterday, across northern new england, out toward atlantic canada now what was responsible for that wind really cranking into high gear. let's look at the wide zoom. oh, we got nasty weather start to go erupt across east texas, still very heavy rain, nasty thunderstorms that will traverse the southeast from the united state. one piece of the puzzle. this joins up, with the cold air that's funneling in down across just north of the great lakes region, across the canadian border here. those two pieces do come together. they join forces, they become the next storm system. that's what's going to get our wind going again. we take you early tomorrow morning, two pieces of the puzzle. i think we are delta very
glancing blow at worse. breeze will pick up. might see snow shower up in the poconos, perhaps some of this rain lift into the jersey shore, southern delaware area. generally, here in the sit, calling for partly sunny day, and bit after breeze. that will be it. then see what happens. another rounds of heavy snow expected up in maine, and that is what's going to get our winds going again. much like what just happened, storm across new england gets that counter clockwise flow going. the wind picks up. we end up with that side impact. that's what's going to happen here. thursday should feature more sun than anything, but you may again end up with some pretty vicious wind gusts out there. meantime, we are also seeing thermometer readings drop off. colder air gets bundled in here with the storm developing. and it looks like thursday and friday end up being the chilliest days of the next several. but it doesn't last long. notice what happens here. jet stream lift off to the north, bulk of the blue contours, actually go north of the canadian border, left with milder air as a result. meantime still on the cool side. minus the wind from yesterday, this does not feel all that
bad. 37 degrees currently at the airport, i think we will have wherewithall to get you to the mid to upper 30's, but the wind flow out of the southwest, so as skies begin to clear out, here is the festive holiday graphic for you here. some sunshine throughout the second half of the day for your sweetheart, cupid's arrow, very apropos in place there. forty-seven the high for us. meanwhile take it into tonight. if you have date night plans scheduled, why wouldn't you, couple of clouds, nothing more, we drop down to 34 degrees. so chill in the air. technically, 34 degrees isn't all that bad for the standards of mid february. looking forward, again, no major storms. so you can breathe easy here, rahel. but you are going to see some evan flow on the thermometer, low four's expected both thursday, friday, as we hit the upcoming weekend temperature begins to rebound. look at sunday, flirting with 60. i think we will see sunshine both days, too, that will be good excuse to get outside. >> that's the type of flirting i like. 50's in the middle of the wintertime, katie fehlinger. >> i love it. >> i think we de is her that
far type of weather after what we have experienced? >> no kidding. >> i'm with you. >> oh, all these experiences, we've had very mild winter. >> yesterday, some snow, some wind. >> even your hair was not affected. >> this doesn't move in hurricane force winds. >> well, continuing here, hugh hefner's son admits he made a mistake. after more than a year, playboy magazine is bringing back nude photos. playboy surprised the magazine world in october of 2015 when they discontinued the nude photos. pictures will be back with the march-april issue. >> so i thought this was interesting. i remember him saying back then that he thought that it was more content, he felt maybe if they could focus on more journalism, more story telling, they would bring back some revenue, apparently that's not -- >> not broken, don't fix it. you know? >> that is a very true, give the people what they want. >> well, you know here, we love our panda ace, at cbs-3. coming up: funny mother-child
moment. at ikea, we believe that everything, from your lamp to your couch, should work as hard as you do. that green living is something everyone can afford. that you can sacrifice everything but a good night sleep. and we believe your furniture should last happily ever after. make the dream yours with ikea.
