5:01 am
>> i'm rahel solomon. meisha live in minneapolis, we'll check in with her soon, first a check of the forecast with katie. talking about a wintery mix could affect the morning commute. >> i think it will be a caution light as opposed to real slow drive weather-related anyway. because we have seen some wet weather through the overnight, started at rain, turned over eventually to snow. at the shore point, still do have some very light snow falling. and if you look real closely at some of the field cameras at the shore, it is starting to stick modestly on the boardwalk, at least, so, i'm sure we're seeing that on the grass, on your windshield, you know, unpaved surfaces starting to pick up at least little accumulation. this is not a major snow event actually, there is two separate systems that we're tracking, we're just in squeeze play mode here, one still making its exit, the other still approaching, so at this point, it is this little sliver smack dab through the middle of our map that's still dry. it is damp outside, we did have wet weather come through, but even if it fell as snow would you really just have wet
5:02 am
roads right now. but, the temperatures, marginal at freezing, take it easy out, there good portion of our region has since been treated, for, you know, any kind of slick travel, but, there may still be some, careful out there, mid 30's, is the general region wide outlook. 26 degrees at mount pocono, that's the one spot little colder obviously, but it is chilly outside. you do still need the winter coat today. today more than anything news and travel kind after day. just not expecting a lot of snow out of what's yet to come but the temperature is going to support it falling as snow and eventually sticking. now, yes, may be some snow falling come 9:00 a.m. but the general window for the bulk of the accumulation we're to see today will be falling about 10:00 a.m. until about 3:00 p.m. and that's when we're looking at modest accumulation, even over that son of time, but temperatures don't really budget all that much during the height of the afternoon, still only in the mid 30's, so it is still cold outside. i think we're talking general coating to inch or two,
5:03 am
absolute max, in the city, probably about a coating. so, you know, doesn't take much. we know that. i would expect that you might need an extra five or ten minute on your commute. so rather than sitting on the mug to drink the cup of coffee today, maybe use the travel mug. i think really the pm rush will be most impacted by this, widespread snow showers somewhat off and on throughout the day. bulk of the accumulation, how much, does happen during the midday. so once more, we will get better check on the timing of this throughout the course of the show. we also, guys, have additional prospect of snow down the road >> looking at track, patco first of all running on modified schedule today until 2:00 p.m. while crews work to repair yesterday's downed pole near ferry avenue station. the evening service is yet to be determined. so, make sure you follow along throughout the day for updates >> taking a look at the cameras, i76 eastbound closed between the vine street expressway and south street, for construction, construction
