your neighborhood because we are looking at a slow moving system of snow moving into the area. >> tracking some snow showers this morning, the first alert for the up cumulating snow is for the entire area. and everyone is likely to see some snow, but it's going to be a slow mover. this one will be impacting our area through noontime tomorrow. during the day today some scattered showers. a possibility of some in the suburbs. more likely will stay dry in philadelphia. but then steady snow overnight today after we get some rain to start with in delaware and south jersey. then snow will start things off tomorrow morning. we've got slippery commutes. right now it's dry, though. the steadier light snow is staying in the lee high valley and burkes county. reading gets a very light snowfall right now. and into lee high county at this hour. it's going to take a long time
for this to move in. in fact, most areas will not see that steady accumulating snow until tonight. but there will be some snow showers around to start with. certainly cold enough for it in the suburbs and the lee high valley. 20s
right now. 20s in new jersey. we've got a warmup before the snow moves into the rest of the area. 38 degrees this afternoon in philadelphia. 40 degrees in new jersey, and up to 41 degrees in delaware. so big differences neighborhood by neighborhood. i'll take you through it hour by hour when i come back in a few minutes, but first jessica boyington has your first alert traffic. >> updates on the ram as around the schuylkill express street. it looks like the eastbound delay has really thinned out. but now with this accident scene over to the shoulder the off-ramp has cleared out of the way, but now it's that backup into south philly. you don't want to take that westbound schuylkill and get stuck in this for quite some
time, of course you can take the grays ferry and head up to through the city there and take the vine. also if you're coming from 95, you can head up to the schuylkill expressway.
while the majority of roads are back open this morning after chunks of ice caused flooding. ice dams clogged the delaware river sending water over the banks. now the water has receded but the flood warnings remains in effect. nbc 10's katie zachary in yardly with a look ahead of that lingering threat. >> reporter: tracy, here what exists right now. behind me this is the ice jam that exists in the delaware river. what you see lit up behind me is what exists between here, yardly, bucks county and across the river into trenton county. water from the river that cannot flow down stream because of the
ice jack is overflowing onto banks. and in this case we look further right and onto river road in yardly. they tell me the good news is this intersection east ferry road and river road is right now the only intersection they have closed. let's take a look at some video. we want to show you one of the more disturbing sites that we've seen from this ice jam is people walking on the chunks of ice, trusting that this ice is strong enough and will not fall into the water. well, we also saw a deer get caught in this mess. police warn from walking on the ice in any capacity. some chunks are moving and can collapse into the river below. it still remains below flood stage, so that is good thing. back out here live i can tell you talking to people who live in this area they instantly
recall a similar ice jam back in 2015 when there was flooding that occurred on parts of river road and before that another ice jam in 1999. police say there were chunks of ice that flowed onto river road as large as vehicles. so we're going to be monitoring the situation, keeping a close eye on this ice jam. >> and you can monitor this flood threat plus the snow that's coming on the nbc 10 app. our live interactive radar shows you what's happening in your neighborhood. plus you can get traffic alerts sent right to your smart phone. praise for police officers who helped stop an armed robbery without using lethal force. investigators say a security guard at the family dollar on frankfurt avenue shot a man suspected of robbing the store at gunpoint. when police arrived they used pepper spray and a taser which seemed to have no effect. officers wrestled the man to the ground and they got the knife away. we're told the suspect seemed to
be high on some type of drug. in north philadelphia officers say someone shot a 27-year-old man twice in the chest. he managed to stagger a short distance along 12 th street before he collapsed and died. police are now looking at surveillance for clues about who shot him. a new report gives insight into what happened when a california student was murdered. he was stabbed more than 20 times and found in a shallow grave. police arrested and charged a high school classmate. an affidavit shows the classmate talked about unwanted advances and that the killing may have been in active range. a reminder septa will no longer accept medicare cards for free and reduced fair raids starting today. the phase-out is part of the transition to septa key photo i.d. cards. septa will continue to accept

women and girls plan to speak out against the former team usa doctor at his sentencing. yesterday biles added her name to the long list of gymnasts who say they were molested by larry nasser. three other olympic team members have also come forward. biles posted a message on social media that reads in part, weal need to know why this was able to take place for so long and to so many of us. we need to make sure something like this never happens again. he pleaded guilty last year to seven counts of sexual misconduct. victim reports could continue for several days until nasser is sentenced. resigned but not fired. the worker who accidently sent out that false missile warning on saturday now has a different job. they say he accidently pushed the wrong button during an emergency drill. the states emergency management says policy changes are under
way. for example, now two people are required to send an alert and protocols are also in place to make a easier to cancel a false alarm. yesterday secretary-general samz mattis says there's no indication north korea reacted to missile alert error. well, the eagles road to victory has many of us literally on the edge of our seat. and if you want a chance for seats at the link for the nfc championship on sunday, here's what you need to know. a limited number of tickets for the birds and vikings go on sale this morning at 10:00. keep in mind, tickets for the divisional round sold out in just one minute. also if you don't want to wait and are willing to pay a whole lot more, you can purchase resale tickets through ticket master. and we did check stub hub and found seats for about $400. that's on the low end. tap the nbc 10 app for a link to today emphasis ticket sales.
it's 6:08 and 30 degrees outside. we have issued a first alert for the snow slowly moving into our area. meteorologist bill henley has your most accurate forecast. >> looks like the first few flakes are making it into the poconos mountains. it's going to be a wait, a long wait for it to arrive here at nbc 10 and for most of the area it's going to be dry during the day. you can see there's nothing heavy about it. it's barely even showing up on that live picture. this is the first batch of some snowfall, and it is very light but it's caught falling into the ground that's just cold enough to support accumulation this morning. so expecting some light snow. allentown, mostly dry, just a few flurries in the area right now. we have seen flurries in new castle county and delaware. here it is. it's farther north and west. and that's going to coming in tonight. during the day today in the lee
high valley and burkes counselee that are more likely to see snow. meantime in philadelphia, look at the temperature climb. 30 degrees right now. way too warm for the snow, so there's a chance we'll see a shower during the day. what more mikelikely we'll see sprinkles. still above freezing at 9:00. but it gets colder than that overnight tonight. so philadelphia, the rest of the area will get snow out of this system. hour by hour forecast shows the snow showers still off to the north and west. they'll be on and off during the early afternoon hours. but by this evening, that main batch of light snow finally starts moving into the area. now, here's what that warm air that occurs during the area does. by 1:00 in the morning, we could see some rain showers. but the cold is going to win this one.
look at the snow sweeping in and that will be cumulating snow. so tomorrow morning we will be slipping and sliding. and it gets colder during the day tomorrow, so that snow will stick on the ground. so the temperatures will be climbing today, but it looks like we've got some snow in for tonight, especially likely during the nighttime hours and into tomorrow morning. a look ahead at the weekend forecast when i'm back in ten minutes. good morning, everyone. jessica boyington with you right now with an update on the roads. just the delays remain here on the westbound sound right around south street following an earlier crash that completely closed down the westbound side. right over here they have what's left of the accident scene. it looks like a police officer and maybe somebody getting out of the way right now on this side shoulder. all lanes getting by just slowly. the eastbound side back to normal, too. also watching the blue route for
problems. i'll also check in with mass transit. seeing some delays for septa's northbound service with delays with equipment problems. a quick trip that is to the airport turned into a nightmare for a local woman. >> i was terrified. i could not believe this was happening to me. >> coming up the uber ride that left her stranded and scared along the highway in the dark. and straight ahead, a new start today. a new leader takes over new jersey. next, his plans for the future. pro tip: giant has great prices on produce.
will take over. >> chris christie will hand over control to phil murphy at a ceremony today in trenton. good morning, pam. >> reporter: good morning. you know, people here say that they're ready to see some change, and they're hoping they see that in governor-elect phil murphy. murphy has been traveling all over the state one of the recent stops he made was to the camden aquarium where he said as camden goes, so does the state of new jersey. he campaigned on taking a tougher stance on gun violence, supporting women's rights by restoring funding for women's health and creating a child ask caregivers tax credit. another campaign promise to expand tax credits to create new housing and tine the battle against atick by raising public awareness, establishing a seven-day limit on initial opiate prescriptions and by lowering the cost of narcan.
five people have died over opioid addictions in the past decade and that's a problem. >> i see a lot of people are falling victim to that, and i hope he just improves the neighborhood over all. more about the people and the community as opposed to the politics. >> reporter: the governor-elect has a big agenda ahead. but his first will be his inauguration which starts with a prayer at 9:30 this morning at shiloh baptist church in trenton followed by an 11:00 a.m. inauguration at the patriots theater at the war memorial also in trenton. i'm pamela osborn, nbc 10 news. time for a check on traffic. we've had that situation there on 76 a little earlier. it's now cleared up but still slow going in that area. >> jessica. >> guys, what we have is the accident scene pushed off to the
shoulder, but still slow. a lot of that is residual delay from earlier. the best way to bypass is for now especially according its moving is if you're coming from the southbound philadelphia area come from i-95 and move up the vine street kpexpressway. coming from new jersey heading into philadelphia we have two lanes only getting by, which is of course the beginning of rush hour when we start to see the most traffic trying to get into philadelphia. right now starting to see a slow down. watching for some flooding and some closures because of it out in trenton route 29, the exit ramp slow there as well. end here on 95. not seeing an increase really in the drive time yet. 15 minutes southbound from new haven road moving to the vine and average speeds there into the 50s.
we're tracking that slow moving snow as we take a live look right now at wilmington. bill henley has the most accurate forecast for your neighborhood. >> tracy by this time this morning, there'll be snow on the ground. this morning we've got snow falling into the lee high valley and also in reading. you can see the snowflakes accumulating on the lens. and the accumulation is not that bad. you can see the sate lights in the distance this morning. but we are under a first alert until noon tomorrow. tracking some light showers this morning. the snow moving into areas north and west this morning. the rain will develop for much of the rest of the area. the temperatures will be warming up during the day. that rain late tonight changes the snow overnight tonight, and the snow is going to stick on the ground. there's a light snow right now. falling in burkes county and
into the lee high valley. really hasn't made much progress. we'll be waiting a while interest the suburbs to see any snow because the main body of this system is still to the west. you can see it's in western and central pennsylvania. extends down to kentucky and tennessee. that's coming at us mainly tonight. here's your hour by hour forecast. dry in philadelphia. that snow off to the north and west. by later this afternoon you can see we're still waiting for snow in philadelphia. and you can see it's inching back into the lee high valley. so that main body of that snow is going to be coming in tonight. it's going to be dragging some warmer air, so we're likely to see some rain showers in delaware and south jersey before the snow takes over and pushes the rainout of here. that's 4:00 tomorrow morning, accumulating snow in the lee high valley and suburbs and pushes through to the morning commute.
it's going to be light snow but just enough to make things slippery by 9:00 in the morning it's starting to end and by early afternoon it's over. by the time it's done, most impressive snow totals will be the north and west. for the suburbs and into philadelphia, north hampton, abington, salem, 1 to 2 inches possible. and then farther south and east, yeah, we're going to get a little bit but much less. an inch or less. and with that rain it may be much less. so a chance of a shower during the day in philadelphia. mostly it's just going to be cloudy, 38 degrees this afternoon. but rain changes the snow. tomorrow morning we've got snow in the morning, drying out in the afternoon, and then we get a warm up starting on thursday. by fridays, 40s. 50s this weekend for saturday and sunday. looking good for the birds game on sunday night. and by monday we've got some rain showers in the area, but it's going to be too warm for anything else.
a high temperature near 60 degrees. sunshine monday, tuesday, wednesday. a chance of showers next thursday. delaware is planning new steps to protect kids and teachers from school shooters. next the proposed safety changes. and this. >> she came back in and she said thursday a truck in the house. >> thursday a truck in the house. really. imagine your surprise if a semi drove right into your living room. a family's close call coming up at 6:30.

slippery commutes ahead especially tomorrow morning. those snow showers have moved into the area. it's a very light snowfall, but it is coming down and falling into temperatures that are in the 20s in burkes and lee high counties. a little bit of accumulation during the morning and early afternoon hours. and tonight the next round sweeps into burkes county, the suburb and eventually into the rest of the area as well. but during the day today we're starting off 30 degrees. the temperature will climb. if we see any wet weather it'll more likely be a rain shower than snow. 27 degrees right now. 27 in new jersey and delaware, but dry right now in those communities. 40 in new jersey and delaware, 41 this afternoon. so a chance of a rain shower during the day. the neighborhoods make a big difference today, and i'll break
it down neighborhood by neighborhood to show you what to expect when i'm back in ten minutes. but first jessica boyington has your first alert traffic. >> we're starting on the schuylkill expressway again. that earlier crash on south street has pretty much cleared. maybe a little bit of residual delay, but other than that it should be fine. again, it looks like it's clearing out. just around the spring garden street off-ramp there was a bit of police activity, but that cleared. also watching the bottom of the walt whitman bridge coming from new jersey, ware starting to see some delays here because the westbound sound has a crash. two lanes only getting by in philadelphia. 6:32 right now. and your chance for tyou to see the eagles in person at the game

now. that snowfall i'm tracking also made it into burkes county and the lee high valley. there will be some rain drops rather than snowflakes, and the temperatures will by climbing. but that all changes tonight. any rain showers to start with will then change to steady snow overnight tonight and accumulating snow making for a messy commute tomorrow morning. this is an issue as no is falling and accumulating. it is coming down and falling into temperatures that are in the 20s this morning. cold enough to support accumulation. it's going to be some time for it to move into the rest of the area. but there is a chance you'll see some light snowfall. in fact, it's just showing up on the radar now just to the northwest of coatesville. earlier this morning was reporting a few snow flurries. the snow chances for philadelphia today, minimal at
9:00 and 3:00 this afternoon. but this evening look at it wrapping up into tomorrow morning. for reading and allentown, we're starting off with some snow. still going at 9:00, likely get a break during the day, and the next batch overnight into tomorrow morning. for the shore and the delaware beaches, unlikely to see any snowfall today. a minimal chance this afternoon. might be even a rain drop this afternoon and early this evening. and 3:00 tomorrow morning, still be waiting in most neighborhoods on the coast and for some snow. new jersey and central delaware not a big chance during the day today. you'll have to wait for tomorrow morning to see that steady air move in. but with it coming overnight tonight, this is when we're going to see that accumulation for most of the area. it pushes the snow out of here, and by wednesday evening the snow will be done but it's going to be colder tomorrow afternoon. 3 inches in pottstown, 3 inches

lee high valley. 26 in white hall township. so it's just snow coming down in these neighborhoods. and you can see into chester county right now, that steady, light snowfall is most likely to stay north and west this morning and into this afternoon. the suburbs, you'll see some scattered snow showers but especially in the lee high valley and beyond. this is just the first part of the system that's going to eventually swing into the rest of the area. but that's not going to happen until tonight for many neighborhoods. here's a portionf the system still to the west and a very slow mover. our first alert is until noon tomorrow. so that's a long period. that's more than 24 hours. tracking those snow showers this morning, some accumulating snow we've seen in those pictures. thank you for sending them in. some snow moving in, but it's not going to make much more progress than that. some rain tracking in going to
make for a slippery commute tomorrow morning and tomorrow afternoon. tomorrow afternoon the rain will be drying up but by then we have got 3 to 4 inches. in the suburbs less, 1 to 2 inches. some rain will turn to snow. and that's why we're going to see an inch or less into central and southern delaware, even less likely likely to see that snow accumulation. we will see warmer air at the end of the week. that chance of warm air, snow will continue into the lee high valley this morning. that snow comes in and it will be falling and accumulating tomorrow morning. tomorrow afternoon will be drying out, and then we will see sunshine on thursday. and here begins the warmup.
near 40 on thursday. into the 40s on friday. dry and mild, too. 57 the high on sunday. rain showers hold off until monday, and we get a break from the rain and bitter cold on tuesday and wednesday. >> time for a check on it traffic. jessica boyington a look at the walt wittman this morning. so, we're watching a crash there. it's the westbound side where we have lanes blocked approaching the bridge. all taway to new jersey down the 42 freeway and beyond that point. so now our drive times are pretty bad. now it's at 22 minutes. speeds are into the teens there, too. so that's going to stop a lot of people if they're trying to get to the philadelphia area. of course it's going to take you a while to get past that scene,
