that's for sure and slippery. they're being dealt with by these crews who are working around the clock. here in westchester, randy gyllenhaal, nbc 10 news. >> you can track the snow and when it will end on our free nbc 10 app. our interactive radar shows you what's happening in your neighborhood plus you get weather and traffic alerts. two brothers are among the latest victims of gun violence in philadelphia. we're told they may have been targeted last night in retaliation for a street fight. witnesses tell police they saw three young men approach the 15-year-old boys, and moments later they say they heard five gunshots. a bullet hit one brother in the face. both were in critical condition at the hospital last night. police have not made any arrests. it's 6:04. for allentown's mayor the wait to defend himself against corruption charges is just about over. they whittled down the group of

outside at i-95 in south philadelphia. you can see snow falling right there on our camera this morning in south philly. and here's a live look from the ground in chestnut hill. first alert meteorologist bill henley has your first accurate forecast for your neighborhood. and those roads surely becoming a mess this morning. >> yeah, chestnut hill gets a little bit colder than center city. so you can see that accumulation on the roadway. meantime center city is kind of missing out. there are a few snowflakes, but it's mainly been rain overnight, but it is warmer in center city. that's normal, but it is melting as it comes down. but the temperature is slowly falling. not going to get cold enough for a scene like this. for camelback mountain, they have 7 plus inches on the ground this morning. we are getting our share. it's a very light snowfall in south philadelphia.
in new jersey is snow has slowly been making its way into new jersey. this was just getting rain overnight. the temperatures have been above freezing in south jersey and especially towards the shore where there's only rain this morning. off towards the north and west, that's been steady snowfall for much of the night for allentown and reading and into the suburbs as well. we will see more accumulation even into delaware as well. the temperatures have been clearing up. it temperatures will slowly cool down the air temperature. and then the ground gets cold enough to support that midwintery mix, that slushy condition that we were seeing in chestnut hill this morning. this will come to an end this morning. we will see some sunshine later today. meteorologist crystal cline is standing by with an update.
>> we're starting with the areas getting the most snow, which is over the poconos and view from camelback mountain. but this is light snow. seeing reports of 3 to 5 inches. for the rest of us, though, many of us only half an inch or an inch at best in pennsylvania neighborhoods or just rain so far in south jersey and delaware. there's the setup we're currently dealing with. this is just one computer model's forecast. i want to show you a tight view of some of our neighborhoods forecast here. snow already falling and it's going to continue as we go through that 9:00 a.m. hour. notice the coloration here. it's a pretty light blue purple. that indicates a light snow, but regardless this is 9:00 a.m. this is in the peak of our commute time. is it heavy snow, no. but is it going to be an annoyance and slow you down on your way to work or school, yes.
temperatures going to be right near freezing as we go through noon and lunchtime. everything is starting to thin and start to move out down to the south and east. so from noon into the afternoon hours there's just nothing left for us. the evening commute should be fine as you head home, but it will be quite cold. and few wet spots could still be a little slippery still. so you have to watch out for that. but you'll no longer need those windshield wipers. the areas in white that's a rain to snow mix. the shore likely everything will melt on those roads. they're a little too warm. the areas in pink, one inch or less. so this is from mercer to philly down to wilmington and new castle county for snow totals. ask that includes berks county as well as the lee high valley. already 3 to 5 inches already reported in some of the poconos.
reading up to allentown, pottstown over to richland and eastland all in that 1 to 3 zone. perksy the same. in abington to morristown and that change over farther south. >> when we came on the air at 4:00 this morning a lot of roads were wet but now they're snow covered and very slippery. >> she has first alert traffic for you this morning, jessica. >> i feel like the roads are actually a little bit worse when there's less snow when it's a morn like today because everyone still goes out. a lot of cars are on the roads and that causes a lot of problems. we're watching a few of them. 95 on gerard avenue is the first one. the drive time is already hiked
up there, and it's probably going to stay there theiat leas through the morning commute. also watching a vehicle fire right around green street. now, probably weather related here. a crash right around lincoln avenue and a road closure out in ben salem because of a crash here that is closed around creek road and on the southbound side closed around park avenue. a predator and the monster that's how our nation's elite gymnasts are describing their former team doctor. >> i have experienced flashbacks and nagt mares of the abuse. >> next dr. larry nasser's reaction as his victims detail the abuse he carried on for decades. also this morning worried about a win? well, philadelphia police are concerned there could be a rowdy party in the streets if the eagles are victorious on sunday night. so coming up at 6:30 their warning to business owners and
neighbors. and here another live look outside at collegeville and montgomery county. we be more weather ahead. stay with us. with dunkin' deals, you get two egg & cheese wake-up wrap sandwiches for $2. and two of those for two of those means you deserve a few of those. stop in for the latest dunkin' deal, two egg & cheese wake-up wrap sandwiches for $2. america runs on dunkin'.
this is live look at allentown, the lee high valley this morning and nbc 10's matt delucia is there live. and as of an hour ago he was using his trusty ruler telling us there's about an inch and a half of snow on the ground. shame, disgust and self-hatred, just some of the feelings gymnasts say their usa doctor caused them. >> without they knowledge and consent i engaged in my first sexual experience by
kindergarte kindergarten. >> this is just one of the many accusers to continue today. >> tracy, the woman you just heard from there asked the judge to make sure that larry nasser would never be free to hurt anyone ever again. her testimony was moving. nasser, the former gymnastics doctor was a friend of the family. he said his actions tore them apart. she looked right at master and told him he convinced her parents she was leeing aboying abuse. nasser never looked at her and instead he sat quietly hiding his face with his hands, at times visibly shaking as his victims detailed how his abuse changed their lives. she was one of the first nearly 100 victims who will give their
testimony. they were not in the courtroom for a second straight day in that michigan courtroom, nasser set to hear from the people he hurt. >> i listen to you tell me no one should ever do that, and if they do you should tell someone. well, larry, not to tell someone but to tell everyone. >> another victim testified that she too often thinks of suicide. nasser is facing a maximum of 125 years in prison. that's on top of a 60-year sentence for possessing child pornography. >> all right, thank you, pamela. while we continue to watch road conditions this morning as they are going from bad to worse in some areas pause of the snow. >> in some areas, and we have
you covered with where it's wet, where it's slushy, what's happening on the overpasses and on-ramps and off-ramps. jessica always warns us those are the first to get really slick. >> that's what always happens especially on day like this where you can't necessarily see a huge accumulation of snow immediately. this kind of stuff happens. 95 right around gerard avenue a crash off to shoulder now that was off in the left-hand lane before. the drive time really hasn't moved, though, still 29 minutes. more cars heading up from wood haven road to the vine speeds still up into the 20s. another crash on east county road right around lincoln avenue. and in ben salem another crash where we have a route closure. 13 southbound closed around park avenue. so clearly a lot of crashes to
contend with this morning and some speed restricts too parts of the new jersey turnpike as well, and bridges are the first to freeze first. so remember that slippery on the on and off-ramps and the bridges. you want to go slower. >> so the snow isn't stopping these people. take a look at this video we got this morning. getting their work out in. be saw them jogging carefully. by this afternoon you guys will have sunshine, but it looks like you have dedicated runners slash joggers still. >> it's going to be cold all day long including in the lee high valley. this is where we're seeing our colder temperatures and very light snowfall but still coming down in the lee high valley. cape may, that's just rain. streets are damp from the rain overnight. right now we're seeing interior
new jersey right around freezing. this is down in the last hour. the atmosphere is slely cooling down. first the air cools down and then the ground actually cools down and we'll see some accumulation like we're seeing in chestnut hill. 30s for much of the area, but now in berks county most areas in the 20s. fleetwood, reading, hope town township, those are all going to stay on the ground unless treated or shoveled. bethlehem at 31 degrees. we will see some breaks of sunshine through the clouds this afternoon. this morning that is snow. that is light snow that is falling, and it is now spread across the suburbs into delaware, and it is inching into new jersey as well. and eventually they'll sweep that rainout of the picture for south jersey. there are some thin spots, so you'll see some breaks in precipitation. we're only looking at light snowfall. this is not a big storm but it's the timing of it and the
slippery conditions for the morning commute, why we've issued a first alert for our area. we're tracking rain and snow, but the snow is taking over from west to east. so we'll see less and less neighborhoods getting rain. the slippery morning commute especially on bridges and overpasses. those will be the first to cool down. then we'll get that gradual cooling this afternoon. for philadelphia snow showers at 8:00, dry at lunchtime and the snow will be done in the suburbs by noontime. staying in the 20s this afternoon for the suburbsch a. and a break or two of sunshine after the morning snow comes to an end. for delaware snowing right now. it's going to be snowing at 8:00 but just cloudy skies at lunchtime and delaware and new jersey. the clouds will thin for some breaks of sunshine later on in the day. the jersey shore mostly cloudy. you'll see some flurries but no accumulating snowfall at the shore. there are warmer and dryer days
ahead. and actually, they start tomorrow. after a cold morning, 38 degrees for thursday. it's a warming trend that will continue right on through the weekend. look at those beautiful weekend temperatures. 55 degrees on sunday, and it's going to be fair weather for the eagles, vikings game on sunday night. we'll be right back.

this morning. accumulating snow we saw it start in the lee high valley and berks county. it started as rain in the suburbs but look now. the rain snow line is over new jersey. that's the colder air that's pushing in. so we're seeing snow also in new jersey. seeing some warmer roads there. there will be some accumulation, but it's going to be lighter than what we're seeing in pennsylvania and northern delaware. the temperatures has been cooling down slowly. we're seeing some temperatures cold enough in philadelphia, too, for some accumulation in park side and chestnut hill. that number will continue to come down. so we've got more snow on the way this morning. but it will be ending later this morning we'll walk you through it later by hour with the future cast just ahead. but first jessica boyington has an update on the roads. >> we've had this continuing problem for the better part of
the commute right now. this accident scene over to the shoulder now. 32 minutes for the total drive time which we're at 25 minutes or so. so not too bad considering we have a bit of extra stuff going on with the roads this morning. southbound to the vine speeds still into the 20s, too. so not moving too quick out there. a few accidents out in cheltenham and ashburn road. you can see it looks like some snow has started to accumulate in some parts, but a lot of it still looks to be wet. watch the on and off-ramp and taking any sharp turns anywhere. >> from south jersey we show you westchester. when we checked in with nbc 10's randy gyllenhaal earlier we saw people shoveling snow from their sidewalks. our team coverage continues now in the lee high valley. >> nbc 10's matt delucia is live
