4:42 am
now, just as much of south jersey is right now. other folks preparing for a little sleet, a little snow. but don't ask me where it's going to be. karen rogers knows. >> yeah, unusual to have such big temperature changes every other day as we've been seeing this season. yesterday a high of 65 degrees and today we have winter weather advisories for our northwest suburbs. storm tracker 6 live double scan looking around the region right now and what we're seeing is rain through philadelphia and areas south but we are picking up a little bit of mixed precipitation. i think this is a little deceiving as you look at this because what's happening right now is it's so light that it's really coming down dry at this point in these areas that look like sleet and snow. so, it's very fine precipitation, even right now along the i-95 corridor we're really not getting much in the way of precipitation. well, it looks like it's raining pretty good right there. it's really south of the steat city where you're picking up some of that. so a lot of this is just drying at the surface and not as heavy as you might think
4:43 am
glancing at that right now. but i think that's a really good idea of what's to come. let's take a look outside right now and show you what's happening as sky 6 looks live. we're looking in center city towards the center city skyline right now and we have just cloudy skies for the most part and a little bit of light rain and drizzle. let's check some of the temperatures for you. currently in philadelphia it's 39 degrees. temperatures well above freezing. the road surfaces well above freezing after temperatures in the mid 60's yesterday. the dewpoint 24 degrees. and that's what's happening right now. some dry air at the surface so while it looks like it's precipitation at the radar, a lot of that is just evaporating but that cooling is what's changing it into some sleet in some areas as it will come down very light. winds out of the north-northeast at 14 miles an hour. big switch from yesterday when it was that mild southwesterly flow and the pressure 30.5-inches. winter weather advisory continues. yesterday they issued it for lancaster county. now we're looking at northwest
4:44 am
suburbs for snow and sleet changing over to rain. as we look at satellite 6 and action radar you can see this precipitation move in. again, looks like it's snowing and raining in spots where for the most part it's very light and fine. i think south of the city is where you're picking up some of that rain. in the northwest suburbs it's very light at this point. future tracker 6 showing at 4:30 in the morning we were in the mid 30's but we advance this through the day and staying for the most part above freezing and the road surfaces above there as well. as we look at here the day for the afternoon we can see your exclusive accuweather 7-day forecast we're getting today rain and a wintry mix at times. it's going to rain through the day today. the wintry mix we're most concerned about in those areas you saw the winter weather advisory in the northwest suburbs. i think that's the one spot where we can see icing continue through part of the afternoon hours when it really starts up there. 42 degrees for your high today. the high well above freezing. and wednesday, tomorrow, we're looking at much milder conditions. we're up to 55 with just a shower or two. on thursday, it's partly sunny skies.
4:45 am
thursday is the pick of the week. temperature-wise it's a little on the cool side at 46 degrees but at this point it's looking like the only dry day. we've had so many damp and dreary days. on the seven day that continues especially friday damp and dreary 48 degrees clouds an few showers. on saturday we'll see periods of rain and 52 degrees. on sunday for the eagles we're looking at 52 degrees under mostly cloudy skies and a shower or two and on monday, a bit of rain and drizzle and a high of 54. >> okay, we'll be ready. thanks, karen. new this morning here, a man was shot in the stomach and collapsed in the street in philadelphia's strawberry mansion section. police say the shooter opened fire on the 23-year-old victim at close range. at 30th and huntingdon streets. the man was rushed into surgery at temple university hospital. police do not know who shot him or why. they are checking surveillance cameras to see if they provide any clues. >> now it's time to take a first look at business. federal agents on a case involving graco. they want to know if the company took too long to report defects in its child

car seats. the company recalled more than 6 million car seats this year because the buckles can get stuck and that could put a child's life at risk. its fbi is warning businesses that hackers are really busy this holiday season using malicious software to launch destructive attacks in the u.s. we've already seen one this week when a cyber attack led to the leak of several new films from sony. let's take a look at wall street. a poor starter to the holiday shopping season knocks stocks a little bit lower on monday. right now futures seem to point to a lower open. and google santa village page is up and running. you can send your friends a call from santa, see the jolly he would elf's journey on a map and play reindeer racing games. one other cool feature is a geography game. that lets you enjoy holiday traditions from around the world. >> people have been taken aback by the commercialism and sometimes agreed during the holiday popping season. came up with a counter point giving tuesday. today they ask you to be
