6:01 am
we expect slippery roads, side streets that haven't been plowed will be a mess. dealing with power outages. maybe your neighborhood might not have power. it will be hard to see everything. a poor commute is on tap. things should get better toward the afternoon when we get the sun shining brightly and temperatures pushing closer to 40 degrees. now we're at 34. below freezing for suburbs. 34 in philadelphia. 33 in south jersey. temperatures in delaware at 32. around the region in mt. airy, 31. society hill, a little above freezing, 34. 32 in parkside. 31 in coatesville. west chester, below freezing. hatboro, we picked up good amounts of snowfall, closer to nine inches. 31 degrees. this is the combination that we're dealing with today, a lot of snow on the ground and below-freezing temperatures. the feels-like temperatures are down. feels like 26 degrees in philadelphia. feeling like 24 in pottstown. the next 12 hours, you'll notice
6:02 am
the windchill will feel like low 30s all day. jessica boyington has a closer look. >> thanks of the starting 95 and cameras at woodhaven road. check the northbound side here. the see the vehicle that was on fire five minutes ago or so. it looks like they put out the fire here. they're still blocking northbound traffic. northbound traffic here almost stopped approaching the scene. any vehicles trying to get off here -- i don't know if they're allowing them to. that looks like another vehicle trying to get to the scene. maybe they're letting people to the shoulder. it's difficult to see. they're moving those amount of cars means they're not moving. northbound 95, seeing issues. look at the on and off ramps. it looks like this guy slid to the side before his car caught fire. southbound, seeing lanes lost there with one lane getting by. i'll have updates in ten minutes. >> thanks. after the storm, it's about
6:03 am
the cleanup. we found a plow clearing lafayette drive overnight in mt. laurel. across the region, crews are working to get the heavy, wet snow off the roads. snow covered, potentially slippery streets are part of the problem. anotheri isis issue is power ou. >> nearly 90,000 homes and businesses in the dark. bucks county the hardest hit. katy zachry has more on a lot of people waking up hoping the power will be turned onned to. >> reporter: yeah, they went to bed fingers crossed and are waking up. while pico is making progress, we've been driving around bucks county this morning and seen areas completely in the dark. we've seen pockets where businesses are open, the power is on, the parking lots are plowed. i talked to a couple here to get firewood. another spot expected to get busier is the red cross shelter
6:04 am
in the middletown township buildings. it offers cots, blankets, food, and most importantly, electricity. people who need devices charged can head to the shelter. the red cross is basing the space on how many are at the shelter. >> i think it's likely we'll be here through the end of the week. then it's going to depend on what happens with the weather. the power companies are working extremely hard and utility people are everywhere trying to repair things. they'll do everything they can to get power up as soon as possible. >> reporter: throughout the morning, we've been checking in with pico several times an hour. every time we do, they tell us fewer and fewer customers in bucks county are experiencing outages. the work is leading to pragogre

6:06 am
still a tough go. a lot of sidewalks have not been shoveled yet. you see what i'm talking about here. only part of the sidewalk is showing. people have to navigate through the crunchy, wet snow that for most areas did freeze a little bit overnight. that's the issue. this car doesn't have it bad. this one here not too bad. we have seen some vehicles that have been plowed in quite a bit. heading out, work or school, you might want to get that shovel. here's the problem with that -- as i take a chunk of the snow, because it was that heavy, wet snow that froze overnight, you've got a lot to shovel. it's going to be heavier loads when you're trying to get that out and dig out this morning. with the windshields, get the ice straper for spots. some -- ice scraper for spots. some of that froze over overnight. we're going county by county
