katie and i think we know what is coming. >> yes, exactly, impact jan says things are switching transition taking place as cold air air is catching up to us. we were able to rebound past freezing mark yesterday and we have been waiting for those temperatures to drop, for it to turn over to snow, at lee in some spots, it has just been that way in the north and western most counties and you will end up with the bulk of the accumulation. but this is a couple hours loop here and this is definitely showing how things have transitioned at this point, mainly just rain, some of those parts in the south jersey but now it is turning cold enough just across south jersey for it to turn it all over to snow. we're still expecting modest accumulation but that is keyword there along i-95, modest is word i would use. a new sense for travel is still a nuisance for travel, however. it doesn't have to be that much to cause substantial delays and problems, out there so hopefully you are watching us new because we have fore
thought to set the alarm early. winter weather advisory posted until 7:00 this morning around mess of the region northwest half of the region i should say but winter storm warning for just a few counties in our area in the poconos, carbon, monroe sit in that winter storm warning where we will have a decent amount out of this. thirty-four is current temperature at airport. thirty in reading. thirty-two allentown. getting colder. notice it is still only 39 in ocean city. even though that wind is turning northwesterly, you know it will eventually get cold enough we will see a few flakes mixing in but we will end up getting bypassed by bulk of this further south, as you travel. daytime highs, are going to level off in the lower 30's but snow will draw to a close, overcast, sky, come lunchtime but skies should continue to clear for at lee a little bit of sun, breeze picks up, cold settles back in and we will clear out here, meisha but here and now is really the headline for today, we are looking ahead to some pretty tricky travel for the next couple of hours.
>> almost certainly we are seeing it, katie, we have a few stents out there, we have snowy conditions and we have speed restrictionness play. just a quick peak at some flakes near schuylkill and gulph mills what you're looking at in certain areas. some accumulating on the roadway. it will be very, very slick and slippery. we will have to factor in some extra time this morning. we have a tractor trailer fire in elk township new jersey route 55 northbound pennsylvania 553 buck road that right lane compromised there. we have speed restrictionness place, northeast extension down to 45, walt whitman bridge 35, new jersey turnpike , down to 45 as well. then we are looking at a couple other accidents this morning, this one, in haddonfield road at iing avenue in pennsauken new jersey head up, in the neck of the wood give yourself extra time very slippery, also towamencin a vehicle hit a pole morris road at valley view way. eve another accident in avon dale as well route 41, at any neck of the wood, probably

that this could potentially be a problem later this morning, slight hill, that cars have to climb so they have been kind of staying in the middle, staying in that path that has been cleared by earlier cars so you can see that people crossing the street as well. lots of snowplows out here, they are more than prepared for this this is nothing like what we have experienced about two weeks ago, i mean very pleasant it is not that crazy wind to have it blowing down coming down very nicely accumulating on the ground and so far so good here in allentown. for now live, i'm trang do cbs-3 "eyewitness news". back to you guys. and it is not as much snow in philadelphia but salt crews are ready to tackle anything mother nature throws our way. "eyewitness news" reporter jan carabao is live, how are conditions there. >> reporter: well, rahel, good morning, we have seen progression of this storm, here in manayunk this morning, overnight, it was mainly rain, and then right around 3:30 this morning that rain, turned to a kind of a heavy snow, and
finally, hour by hour, as the temperatures dropped we have seen this light, fluffy snow start to fall, a live look behind me this morning here along main street in manayunk you can see the road are still clear they are glistening and that is just moisture left over from the overnight rain, in of that is frozen and snow has been sticking to the road just yet but looking over to the sidewalk we can see cobblestones here on picturesque main street the snow is starting to stick. it is cold out here, it is freezing and snow is falling more steadily now. taking a look at the video you can see penndot crews are ready for whatever kind of precipitation you can see they have been busy, gearingp at oregon avenue salt yard in south philadelphia, penndot has 450 salt trucks and plows ready to go, and they have been busy pretreating the road were 4,000 tons of salt and a lot of these storms have been taking a toll, on their storage. they have used 40,000 tons of salt, they have not had to

blocks from her she's at 34 degrees and she did report it is a little bit of sleet right now, she just sent this in. pictures she sent if it will pop up, there it goes, you said that she actually heard it sounding like sleet on her deck. i'm sure what that was. it is tight in her neighborhood. and new starting to get colder and colder. she will see that turn over with snow within the same amount of time, cross our area let me go further to the north , i want to hone in on these, ken rawston sent his observation in and he is at 31 he has snow. the road seem okay. they have been doing their job they have been out, pretreat g too mh issue but with light snow you will have accumulation and further are north and west that you travel more likely you will have accumulation, too actually, shovel away. new when we switch things back over here and looking at the wide zoom this is a broad system.
frontal boundary will definitely knock temperatures back especially by tonight we will be back down in the teens through the overnight hours, but we do still have that mixing taking place, and here, locally, so, you are still seeing, just again just where you are a little bit of rain in spots, even as we zoom in more you can see how things have really turn over here just in parts of the gloucester camden county. it is gettingessively colder and allowing forha transition to take place. let me show you the seven day. with time would i say in later then 10:00 a.m. whole thing is moving out. it is just next few hours. modest one to 3-inch's long i-95 probably on the lower end in the city but then temperatures begin a really nice rebound. meisha, take a look, we are in the 50's all weekend long and some sunshine. i can dig this. >> same here i'm totally on board with that after what we have been dealing with this morning. we're all digging that. thanks very much, katie.
we are looking outside at a quick peak at boulevard at fox street. you can see right here it just looks very, very wet. we will be dealing with a little bitf everything depending where you are this morning and it will absolutely slow us down on the roadways this morning. so head up, all of this water will be splashing behind you and if that is you make sure you have windshield wipers working, pack your patients and take it easy. we have a tractor trailer fire elk township new jersey, route 55 north bound pennsylvania route 553 and buck road right lane compromised there we are another accident in pennsauken new jersey haddonfield road at irving avenue and another accident in towamencin where a vehicle hit a pole, there are injuries with that accident, morris road at valley view way and another accident in avondale. forty-one, jabany port pike. speed restrictionness place for three areas northeast extension, walt whitman, new jersey turnpike. rahel, back over to you. meisha, thank you. we continue to track winter weather. snow is in the forecast
throughout the area. >> that means slick conditions on the road, meteorologist matt peter sonnies in the mobile weather watcher near matt, how are thingscounty. looking there. >> jim and rahel, things are starting to deteriorate on the roads. those conditions are. further are north and west we will get, from philadelphia so when we were on 76 westbound heading outside, out of town we started to see that rain change over, to the snow but road for the most part at that point were still just wet more than anything else. we got further out toward king of prussia area we got out closer to 202 we started to see a small, small amount of this snow, accumulate on the side of the road and as we take a look at the dash cam here in the mobile weather watcher as we head even further north away from the city on 422 west we are start to go see snow accumulate really on the shoulders of the road and even in some of the lanesheoad, as well, so even though these road
probably were treated at some point through the overnight hours and here in the early morning as well, we are getting accumulations very minimal accumulations on the road north and west of the city so that is leading to the potential for slick spots out there from time to time. of course, as our temperatures continue to drop as we head further from the city where right now in the mobile weather watcher our thermometer says we are right around 32 degrees. all this precipitation does fall, is going to be sticking to the road, it is already sticking to the grass surfaces , we have pulled off real quick right the oaks area, to get a look at what was going on in the grass surfaces we are seeing accumulating snowfall there, so again, for the most part it does look like road are getting a little bit slick. they are not just purely wet we are seeing wet, falling snow stick especially on the side of the road and areas that maybe weren't treated or were treated a little bit too early in the evening and new as things cool down we are going to potentially work in some problems.
for the road right now again we are starting to see again a d out to the city, jim and rahel , back to you in the studio. >> they will have to get back out there and treat road again new study finds best states to retire too i'm all ears we will tell you top three in the money watch report. >> i have. >> yes. >> i haven't heard. but first we are tracking winter wet they are morning. a live look from jack frost big bold inner cash conn county. you can see how much has fallen you see that accumulation there. hard to tell looking at the innings tour but you can still it is significant. snow will make road slick this morning. be careful out there. we will check the forecast just ahead.

so many appropriate symbols within this song, this song by the eagles who were seeing on the weekend but you have to take it easy for drive and hopefully waking up to what is earlier then you normally do because we have forethought to set the alarm early. we have what i would classify as a nuisance frontal boundary crossing through not necessarily as we go very far north and west it is a system that has, moved in the north and western counties but in the city we have light accumulation of snow. it has terrible timing though, it is still primarily a rainfall maker in south and eastern most new jersey but now we are seeing that mixing and turn over to snow, in gloucester, camden counties, certainly across the delaware river at this point. even though we are still only expecting about the upward of one to 3 inches max on the lower end of the that range in the city still enough that it will slow you down. up until sunrise that wet snow is pushing through come 10:00
a.m. snow will be moving off shore so this is just a morning issue, this afternoon skies are gradually going to start to clear. when we look forward from here we have wall to wall sunshine for days and nice warm up that comes with this. weekend, actually looks the best right now lower 50's, great tailgate weather, all and all for late january here in the city and we keep you even into early next week in the lower 50's. so, you know, just shoved up to the forefront here when it comes to the problems we will face in the forecast here, meisha. thirty-one is the expected high. we are above that in spots right now but we will level off in the afternoon so that is your afternoon high so again snow should be pushing out no later than 10 or 11:00 a.m. >> good, i mean see you later. yes, bye. >> especially for our morning commuters you will to have pack your patients this morning especially heading out the door soon. we will be seeing a lot of problem spots this morning and hopefully they will remedy themselves a little bit but i
dent think they will more vehicles that get out there looking at the vine traveling westbound, schuylkill we are working with eastbound side starting to build levels up as well. we have been monitoring this tractor trailer fire in elk township new jersey. it is still out there on route 55 northbound past route 553 but hates been moved off to the shoulder. that is good news there we are looking at another accident haddonfield road, at irving avenue and another one in towamencin. so vehicle hit a pole, this one also has injuries. this hopefully will be clearing out of our way that is what it looks like here. route 202 limekiln pike and another one in avondale route 41, jabany port pike. lots of activity. jim, over to you. our coverage of the morning's wintry weather continues in the next her we are live with the very latest on the road conditions. also ahead we have a new look at robbery and shooting inside a local barber shop, we will show you more as authorities turn to the suspects. and a political statement
