more tomorrow morning, and also a change to snow. we have cloudy skies right now. it's cold. 31 degrees, 16-mile-an-hour wind making it feel like it's 20. that is really cold. 31 in philadelphia, but it's in the 20s to the north and west. much milder down toward the shore. 44 degrees in stone harbor. so some of that warm water is having its influence with the wind coming in off the ocean down there at the shore. now, we're going to have more of an east wind that will bring the warmer air in but the question is will it come in in time by the time the precipitation comes in. you can see the wind arrows out of the northeast and pretty brisk. 16-mile-an-hour sustained wind here. the winter storm warning in effect in the poconos, 3:00 a.m. tuesday to 7:00 a.m. wednesday, and the storm will continue beyond that. several inches of accumulation at least plus some ice. coastal flood advisory for
tomorrow morning. i expect tides to be higher tomorrow morning at 8:00 to 10:00 a.m. than they were this morning. if you flooded this morning, you're going to flood tomorrow, and the water is going to be even higher. now, the nor'easter is forming. you can see that circulation well offshore, but it's going to kind of redevelop closer to the coast. this is way ahead of that system. don't let this scare you, that the storm is coming in faster than we're expecting. this is just way ahead of it. a little bit of light snow, a little bit of sleet with that. the storm time -- the heaviest of the rain, 3:00 a.m. tomorrow to 3:00 p.m., and that's when we could see the flooding. the highest winds tomorrow morning to wednesday evening. that again mostly at the shore. could be over 50 miles an hour. and the biggest snow threat doesn't even start until wednesday. so, again, we're going to be watching this thing all week. 7:00 p.m., still not much going on here.
11:00, the rain is starting to come up from the south and as we go through the night, it gets heavier and heavier. by tomorrow morning's rush i expect heavy rain in much of the area, and even into the afternoon expecting rain. now, the other thing that's going to happen is as the storm moves away, colder air is going to start coming back in. because the storm is tracking so close to the coast, this is mainly a rainstorm, but watch the changeover starting to happen as we go into wednesday with some of the latest computer guidance. obviously north and west has the best chance of seeing some of that snow, and this is the general snow map as we go through the week, and new england once again gets hammered with a winter storm out of this. today our temperatures stay in the 30s, way below average, with wind, too. so it is nasty. the light wintry mix to the south and east. don't think it's going to make it up to the philadelphia area.
plus it's getting a little bit warmer so it would be light rain anyway. the main rain comes overnight tonight after midnight and the temperature does not drop. holds steady or goes up a little. heavy rain, gusty winds tomorrow. then the colder air arrives. snow and rain showers on wednesday. the snow could reach all the way down into the philadelphia area and some snow showers thursday as well. look how cold it is all week. >> thank you, glenn. british invasion. it's a busy morning in the u.s. the duke and duchess of cambridge and we'll let you know why william and kate are spending part of the day apart as they continue their american tour. and what's in store for one of the world's most watched couples tonight. and later, know any vegetarians? you may not for long. a new study that shows mohow ma

stop anything. see, there's the circulation on a future wind map, and then it redevelops tonight right off the north carolina coast and then comes right up the coast and it's so close to us that it's bringing in enough ocean air to have this as a mainly rainstorm. once the storm moves past us and the winds turn around, that is going to bring in another cold air to change things to snow. now, we've had a little bit of snow in parts of south jersey and delaware this morning, way, way ahead of this storm that you saw which is hundreds and hundreds of miles away and so we got to keep our eye on this, but the atmosphere generally warming up, so we're already starting to see a change over toward rain in some of the areas that saw some snow earlier. the temperatures though not going very far. the precipitation tonight as it comes up from the south. you see the temperatures are going up a little bit if anything, and by tomorrow morning look at them, into the

parts of the area. flags are blowing. it's starting to blow off the ocean and we already had some coastal flooding this morning, and tomorrow morning's high tide should be even higher, so that flooding should be even more widespread. 31 right now. feels like it's 20. 9 degrees colder than it was at this time yesterday. still in the 20s north and west, and we'll have to keep our eye on those temperatures later tonight as the precipitation moves in. but it is plenty warm at the shore. 44 in stone harbor. some of that warmer air coming in off the ocean, so it's a race between that warmer air and the precipitation. now, you can see the circulation, that storm offshore. it's way offshore, but as we go into later tonight, it looks like it redevelops right off the north carolina coast. you can see the winds coming in off the ocean, and even by tomorrow morning at the high tide time, it's still coming in off the ocean. so i think there's going to be
some real significant flooding here tomorrow morning at the shore. there's also going to be some significant snow in the poconos. 3:00 a.m., tuesday, to 7:00 a.m. wednesday is the current storm warning but i expect that would be extended because the snow threat will continue. coastal flood advisory likely across all of the shore areas. high tides tomorrow, 8:00 to 10:00 a.m., higher than we saw this morning. there's the developing storm way off shore. it's likely to come back in our direction. and we started off the day with a little bit of snow in parts of south jersey and delaware. starting to warm up a little bit, change over to a little rain, a little wintry mix here. the heaviest of the rain occurs from 3:00 tomorrow morning to 3:00 in the afternoon in general and that's when some localized flooding is likely. the highest winds at the shore gusting to 50 miles an hour
possibly. tuesday morning to wednesday evening, although they will shift in direction and the heaviest snow generally starting on wednesday. so early this evening it's dry, but the rain comes up from the south. by tomorrow morning's rush it looks like it should be heavy in parts of the area, and then start to spin around. depending on the track of the storm, you can determine how much rain is going to fall, but i'll give you just a little bit of an idea in just a second and where the snow is likely to be in poconos and areas north and west, but it could potentially start wrapping around the entire area as we go into wednesday or wednesday night. again, depending on the track of the storm. now, computer model rainfall by 7:00 tonight not much at all. by tomorrow morning's rush, that's pretty significant, over an inch of rain in some areas, and by tomorrow night, that's an average of around 2 inches, meaning some places get more
than that and 2 1/2 total from that particular model. cloudy and cold with a light wintry mix south and east. temperatures not going very far today. mid to upper 30s but they're not dropping tonight. holding steady or rising. heavy rain and gusty winds tomorrow. the colder air comes in wednesday, changing rain to snow. rain and snow showers depending how heavy it is. then thursday it's cold enough for snow, and it's cold on friday and windy. maybe the weather will improve by the time the eagles get to play. about eight minutes before noon. we want to update you on that plane crash breaking news that we told you about. it's a twin engine plane that crashed just outside of washington, d.c., in gaithersburg, maryland. here is the crash. you're taking a live look at it. it's about -- the screen of the crash is about a mile north of a small municipal airport called montgomery county air park. we're told the plane was approaching the runway this morning when the crash took
place. authorities say the plane itself appears to be a six or ten-seater or up to ten people in that plane possibly. although we don't know how many people were in the plane. they say it crashed into one home setting it and then two other homes on fire. we're told crews are there and they have the fire under control but they're conducting a search and rescue operation right now to find if anyone in those three homes that the plane hit are there or if there are any victims or anyone that was on the plane. the plane is a registered to a sage aviation that's out of chapel hill, north carolina. as we get more information, we'll bring it to you. we'll be right back.
coming up this afternoon starting at 3:00, ellen is all new with amy poehler. then it's nbc 10 news at 4:00. this afternoon the check is in the mail. today the $1,000 payment that's coming for hundreds of local homeowners and why that amount will only cover a small fraction of their pain. this afternoon on nbc 10 news at 4:00. a quick check of the weather? the slow moving nor'easter, it will be cold this week feeling more like january and we're having mainly rain, could change to snow at the end but a lot of wind. >> thanks, glenn. thanks for watching nbc 10 at
