5:00 pm
afternoon i'm ukee washington. aim jessica dean. we are watching radar and effects tonight we have live team three coverage and we will start in our weather center with meteorologist kate billow with what is happening right now, kate. >> as you said, the timing is, the problem, here really this is generally light precipitation we are not expecting much in the way of accumulation a few hundreds of an inch of ice, possibly a few half inch of snow in our north and western suburbs. most of that has started to wind down but it is timing. ice on the road during evening commute during school dismissal hours you will have some problems out there lets look at what is going on out there on storm scan three and you can see from the radar picture this is not heavier precipitation, rain is a light drizzle, very light rain coming through but the problem is the ground temperature. ground temperatures, soil temperatures around 20 degrees thanks to our prolonged duration of the cold air so anytime you get rain to fall and sub freezing surface it will freeze, on contact, this looks like it is winding down
5:01 pm
it is spinning right here how this is starting to fill in ever virginia and maryland i am concerned another wave have rain could come through for south jersey and delaware through the later, hours of authentic and that is why weather winter advisory for suburbs goes until midnight. philadelphia getting the brunt of it right now, heaviest have the rain we have seen so far that, quarter pink shade over the city right over 76 and 476 , could lead to some very slick conditions now, on side streets, untreated surfaces. main road thanks to the salting and friction on, keeping the road warmer that should help, the conditions on the main road. but your driveway, front walkway, any back road, bridges, overpasses these are areas to be most concerned b temperatures just below freezing in philadelphia, 31 degrees. raining at 31 degrees. that is problem. rain will freeze on contact in any sub freezing surfaces. mid 20's in allentown and reading, above freezing down the shore but ground is cold
5:02 pm
so any rain that falls, could freeze, on contact there, how much are we talking there? most of the snow is done for the poconos and that is where the snow has been. there was light snow in the far north and western suburbs but mainly wintry mix have freezing rain, sleet, snow around city and suburbs. rain freezing rain and sleet for shore points and down into delaware but threat of ice, it is every where. your winter weather advisory goes through this evening at 9:00 in the city, midnight down the shore and that is indication that the road could be treacherous so stay off them if you can. while we keep track of the system here, cbs-3 mobil weather watcher is on the road with meteorologist lauren casey passing the streets in the wintry mix. lauren's live on the schuylkill expressway eastbound with the very latest , how is it out there. >> reporter: it is slow, everyone taking it slow and road are glistening which means that they are wet and or icy. we will give you a live look at schuylkill expressway heading eastbound toward
5:03 pm
direction of south philadelphia, freezing drizzle is coming down right now, you can see we are using our windshield wipers, is there precipitation, on the mobile weather watcher and roads do appear to be very glistening, so we do have that precipitation that rainfall, kind of accumulating on the roads and concern as kate mentioned the soil temperatures that it is just so cold, ground temperatures, at around 20 degrees, so this rain is going to freeze, on contact, and so it is extra cautious of icy conditions on the roadways, throughout our evening commute, with falling freezing rain and drizzle, remember, freezing rain, is, rain, it looks exactly the same as rain, it just freezes on contact with the ground with temperatures freezing or below air temperatures or those cold ground temperatures at 20 degrees. so everything will be freezing , on contact, also, we do have this left over, snow, in the mixture as well and if that starts to melt that could exacerbate slippery conditions
5:04 pm
in the next several hours, so again, be sure to use extra caution, and guys, the road are not looking as busy as they typically would around this time it would be packed on the schuylkill expressway so i think people are heeding that advice, heading home, early from work and that warms my meteorological heart that people take advice they headed home early taking it slow, taking it easy so everyone stays safe what could be a dicey commute. >> in, lauren, thanks very much. we will check back with you in the mobil weather watcher throughout our broadcast this evening. meanwhile tonight, we're also watching the road from our traffic camera is a evening commute continues, this is a live look at i676 in center city not too far from where lauren was. delays are mostly in the eastbound lanes. driver should use extra caution authentic. this wintry mix is causing slick spots on the major roadways. now lets get over to "eyewitness news" reporter anita oh live from the schuylkill express weighed near city avenue with how the commute there is shaping up, anita. >> reporter: ukee, the rain is
5:05 pm
really freezing on any untreated surface that it hits we are here at the schuylkill expressway westbound opposite direction of lauren and it does look like is there less traffic then there was earlier this afternoon when it was just back to back grid lock and traffic moving along very, very slowly. at this hour we are getting a handful of reports of accidents in the western suburbs and also, reports of streets that have completely iced over. as freezing rain moves through our region drivers are trying to escape it. >> i know better then to be out so i'm just trying to get back home. >> in work today just trying to get off the road. >> reporter: 350 penndot crews are on the treating the road but officials say this kind of mixed precipitation can be tricky. >> not a good situation, isis never good, there is no clean way to get rid of it. >> reporter: that goes by kyle freeze have lower merion township he has a truck full
5:06 pm
of salt to melt slick spots. >> freezing rain sleet is worse. >> reporter: freeze says treatments of the street is prioritized they have the streets categorized in one's, two's, three's bell machines avenue is considered a one, that is first priority and, streets are a three. >> reporter: we are getting reports of the worse conditions in berks county but again here a wrong the schuylkill expressway you can see traffic has lightened up, quite a bit, it seems that drivers are taking it, relatively slowly and also a lot of drivers have gotten off of the roads but if you are still heading out, for your evening commute officials are urging you to take it slowly. for now live along the schuylkill expressway, anita o h for cbs-3 "eyewitness news" alycia nieves is keeping an eye on conditions in new jersey and joins us from a camden county, salt yard in stock and alycia, preparations started well ahead of the precipitation. >> reporter: ukee and jessica they are right along route 70 out here and we have seen salt trucks loading all day in this
5:07 pm
area and all day all over this state, everyone preparing for conditions that we are right at this moment, precipitation, at this moment, it is not that bad, little drizzle coming down but that may be deceptive that is why i say. that looking behind me the ground is just frozen still from the cold as we have had over the last couple of days, last two weeks and as that rain comes down as lauren mentioned it will start to freeze and we will see black ice certainly very dangerous road conditions. as one plow and salt truck leaves another one pulls in the camden county department of public works salt barn in pennsauken and a all hand on deck situation crews preparing in thon stop all day for expect afternoon and evening wintry mix have light snow, sleet, and freezing rain. >> it has been non-stop, we are started to wash off the trucks from friday/saturday, and we just got halfway through that when we got the
