5:04 am
down heavily, light fluffy but heavier larger there flakes and they are getting lighter. so what we are seeing here is still accumulation, on, sidewalks and grass surfaces. so as we look down here to the ground you can just see well, maybe a little over an inch, inch and a hatch here we have gotten here with this snow overnight, but the good news that we have been showing you all morning it is really not sticking to the roadways and that is continuing to be the case here in the lehigh valley this here is hamilton street i believe and you can see it just looks pretty wet. we have seen so many snowplows coming through here and on our way up here and they have pretty much just had their plows up driving around waiting for this snow to accumulate. that is in the happening here for those who will have to be getting up in just a little bit and heading outside of their door. just take it slow, just use common sense. it is pretty, nice pretty

5:06 am
covered with snow this morning so remember that as you head outside the door maybe your driveway if you you didn't put salt down. the road though are looking pretty good at lee in this area of philadelphia this morning. lets look at some video we shot this overnight at the salt pile along oregon avenue in south philadelphia, that is where we saw penndot crews really gearing up this morning they have pretreated the road as i mentioned with 4,000 tons of salt, ahead of this storm so they are ready. and new we are watching and waiting for accumulating snow and as you get out and get into your car and head out to the road they want to you remember this sound advice take a listen. >> we have about 450 trucks out, and in the area. a slow down when you see our trucks out there just back off a little bit and take your time you will get where you are going to go. >> reporter: that is right you'll get there eventually. but it will be slow go but the streets are clear for now but
5:07 am

5:13 am
going to be on thew side, pecially in the morning. we will give you red light here this morning on the area roads because wet snow will be falling, we will most lakely be seeing slick areas out there as well. as we go later on through the afternoon we will because that snow will be wrapping up but a fall slick areas in spots that weren't treated this morning still a possibility and then that drive home in the really too much that we will be concerned with the snow system well off the coast and we could see some sun, starting to break through the cloud at that point as well. so back on our dash cam there are folks out there on the road just pennsylvania 5:00 in the morning for the mess part again roads are just wet and not a ton of slick spots but it is something that we will be having to keep an eye on, jim and rahel all morning long katie back to you.
5:14 am
>> so matt was saying he is seeing wet road we don't know how much will accumulate. >> further north and west we go the bulk of the accumulation will be taking place here. we will be on the lower end of the range one to three along i-95 and vicinity. 422 as well, cbs-3 mobile weather watcher to avoid as well but the frontal boundary crossing is the wide zoom and we will start off with a quick shot of the camera up at jack frost big boulder. reason we found this interesting you see what looks like half of the oreo cookie or 23rd. on the bottom is your wall from the camera. we have zoom it out to see base of that wall and easily couple inches that accumulated on top of that. it is beautiful up that way with the fresh powder coming down in the poconos and how about it if you are a ski bunny, hit the slopes, great excuse for it but we will have tricky travel getting up that way so that is where bulk will
5:15 am
fall. lets switch back over and look at storm scan at a wide zoom. there is, a line here where it is snowing even as far south as panhandle of florida and icing there too but far north as well all the way into atlantic canada very broad stretch of this we have snow falling here locally and relatively light snowfall for the city, lower end of one to three but i want to time this out. precipitation in every single location in every single minute for next few hours but we could still encounter a mix for next hour or two with temperatures enough above freezing that it is a killed rain near shore. you might get gipped out of the snow period across places like the cape may county, atlantic county but just a few flakes that do fall through. height of the typical morning rush is when it is at its war unfortunately for i-95 and immediate vicinity but 10 or 11:00 a.m. we are moving out
5:16 am
to sea, we will see skies clear and cold rushes in and gets chillier much more tonight. how much snow are we talking. one to three is general call, on top of what we have seen in the mountains we could end up with another inch plus out of this. but, this is a model interpretation of what will end up happening here in philadelphia we will see how we do. that does fall within the range we called for. thirty-four at the airport. can you tell where front crossed through? so much colder in pittsburgh and state college teens single digits at this point. those are not accounting for wind chills but actual temperature.ets cold come later tonight down to 18 for early morning low tomorrow but sunnies back, meisha and nice warming trend gets underway, perfect timing for a big eagles game this weekend. yes, plan your patients you will need it today. we have seen accident after accident, we have a few some clearing, some get out
