5:00 pm
precipitation you had. and how much you got today. folks at the shore mostly got a wintry mix and most of our regions to the north got socked with snow. and continuing coverage of the march nor'easter and the precipitation started to fall late last night and the roads are covered in snow. >> barely passable in regions. and folks are asked to stay home if they don't have to go out. >> and little by little was the way to tackle this heavy snow. all right mobile 6 driving right now along northbound route 1 headed toward cotman avenue and it looks like the roads are treated and folks are moving along at a decent clip but on the ride hand side not as good. the middle lane is the best one to ride on if you are headed out. and the crews are could having avenue inch of the nor'easter
5:01 pm
and trish hartman in montgomery county and nydia han in rihouse square and sara bloomquist with sledders. and lets go to cecily tynan and adam joseph with the latest on the storm. >> the storm system is lifting out of our region but it did pack a punch for parts of the area. >> we see double digit snowfall totals across the heart of the delaware valley here with the blinding snow at times this afternoon. >> and for philadelphia it's out of here let go over to the "action news" weather center. and this shows you the broad picture of double scan live radar and the storm is working up close toward long island and really shutting off the snow in most of our viewing area but there is one more band across new jersey, from burlington county into ocean county. near surf city and this is racing to the east. pretty quickly and this is where we have that blinding snow. we can flip this over and show
5:02 pm
you the snowfall rates. typically with snowfalls at the rate of 1 to 2 inches per hour. but right along this band we have snow falling at the rate of 2 to 3 inches per hour and this band was sitting over philadelphia for about two and a half hours. and that is what brought the higher snowfall accumulations. if you look at the total, the storm formed 50 miles farther to the east so is the heaviest snow was not over the lehigh valley and the poconos. but the heart of the delaware valley. bryn mawr 11 inches and broomall a foot of snow. and the heavy wet snow and greenville about 1.5 inches of snow. and at the height of the storm a lot of us adam and i included heard the thunder. we had thundersnow is than is the sign of a quickly developing storm. for more details on thundersnow
5:03 pm
lets head to adam joseph. >> that is the word of the day. most of us in the delaware valley heard that. and we remember it. i heard it when i was 8 years old and never forgot it. how can it thunder and you get lightning in the snow storm. it can happen but only in the strongest of storms that develop off the coast. it's a rare event and in fact, extremely rare to have 100 lightning strikes south and east of i-95 this afternoon. it goes to show, how much energy was in the atmosphere charged up with this storm. we saw snowfall rates 2 to 3 inches an hour and they are true lightning strikes. it is dangerous. in ocean county a person and a house was struck by lightning this afternoon. >> temperatures now are above freezing with the sunshine breaking out. and right now it is slushy and wet out there. but the winds creating
5:04 pm
windchills only in the 20s, visibilities are coming back up with the returning sun to the west. but still a half mile of blinding snow in trenton and toms river 2.5 miles visibility. but the problem when the sunsets here the snow exits the coast by 6:00 the chilly breeze continues and temperatures drop below freezing and the slush hardens up and anything not treated will turn over to black ice. we'll have meteorologist, cecily tynan come up with a five-day with a storm we are possibly tracking. >> thank you we appreciate that. >> in the meantime matt pellman joins us with the latest on the highways. >> the latest is just the slightest bit of improvement but this is the scene we see all afternoon and kind of sick is of seeing it, cars and trucks in this case, sitting and spinning their wheels. being stuck on a snowy slushy mess. this is northeast philadelphia.
5:05 pm
the ramps connecting 95 northbound with academy road and the ramps are blocked now and shot is not frozen but traffic is not able to move spining along the ramps at 95 at academy. this is woodhaven road turning from snow into wetness but still coverage in both directions. up there we have some blockages, vehicles spinning out in both direction as long wide haven at 13 bristol pike. and things are improving along the schuylkill expressway. this is king of prussia from 202, turning from snow covered to slushy, it's still going to be slippery but things are getting better on the schuylkill even though the westbound travel time is slow. i like this shot. malvern, chester county, what a difference a couple of hours making looking better at 202, route 29 and all lanes are passable. and a live look at the ben franklin bridge, we are moving okay. and better news at the
5:06 pm
burlington bristol bridge, they have reopened. it was closed for an hour and a half. and in gloucester county these are the ramps connecting 322 with the new jersey turnpike, multiple truck issues. jackknifed truck and mass transit issues with the cynwyd lines that remain stopped as well as the new jersey transit buses. >> thank you matt. meantime a notoriously tricky spot when it snows is along city avenue in bala cynwyd. we were there when the septa bus tried to gain traction. and lots of cars got stuck in the area and luckily a good samaritan was around. trish hartman live in bucks county tonight. how are the conditions shaping up tonight? >> reporter: so it's finally starting to lighten up here in
5:07 pm
plumstead, lets do another measurement though. last time we were at 13 inches and now we'll get again 13 inches, so things are starting to slow down in terms of accumulation as you can probably see, it's still coming down to route 611, we can actually see the road the first time in a couple of hours that has happened. still slushy and slick and the plows are making head way here. even though officials have been urging vehicles to stay off the roads, and that includes atv's we ran into people out and about any way. drivers say that roads are treacherous through the height of this storm. and plows are coming through trying to keep route 611 clear and people are driving around even though ocs are urging folks to stay off the roads. and county dispatchers are getting records of disabled
5:08 pm
vehicles all over the area. and this plow driver says it's a challenge to keep things clear with how quickly the snow is accumulating. >> from 12:00 on it's a whiteout. as fast as i make it past. i can barely see my tracks behind me. >> four-wheel-drives are extremely slippery and you can't tell where the road surface ends and where the curb starts. i would not advise being out but we need a battery otherwise i would not come out. i'm own two miles from here. >> he was picking up batteries because he lost power and said here we go again because he lost power a few days ago. and last check 3,000 customers are without power here in plumstead township because of this heavy wet snow. reporting live in

5:10 pm
ago. >> we lost it last week for 20 hours, right now we are out this morning i don't know how long. >> initially the roads are wet and clear and heavy snow began and visibility dropped and driving conditions deteriorated. >> a van face forward into the hill and the pickup truck went down the gully and into the woods and the the police are there on both of them. >> not pleasant out right now. not easy to get around. >> slow down. >> plow crews kept main roads open and snowfall tapered off at 3:00 and this plow operator assessed conditions. >> it's getting better now and getting slick when we clear it off. >> it is getting ice complaints. we clear it off and salt it as we go. but it is getting better. >> so how did conditions today compare to last friday. >> there is no wind. and last friday it was all
5:11 pm
windy. >> that make a critical difference? >> oh yeah. >> well, so heavy snow here brought down power lines and trees, we are told 3,000 new outages. but nothing like last week where we had the wind gusts of 50 and 60 miles per hour. >> thank you john. as we are telling you many roads are still bad out there. it's best to stay in and let the crews work. lets go to the phone and check in with bob kent with penndot. >> good evening. >> thanks for joining us lets start with the currents conditions and where are you seeing the most problems at this hour. >> this hour, more or less in bucks county with the bucks county philadelphia border and trees are down. on the highway in the area of 95 and route 413 as well as 95 at woodhaven road. and u.s. 1 and 213. we have trees down that we are
5:12 pm
dealing with so that is kind of where we are at up in that area. it seems like the storm was worse that way and pushing out but right now that seems to be the trouble spot. >> i assume you have trains of crews working on major roads throughout the evening. will they pull an all-nighter owe on this one? >> we'll continue to be out there long match the storm moves out and pushing snow from the travel lanes and shoulders to avoid the temperatures that adam mentioned. we want to eliminate that risk. we advise most rifts to stay off the road and not travel unless they have to. the 45 miles per hour speed restriction which is in effect since 10:00 a.m. this morning, that will remain in effect. and probably only restored once conditions throughout the entire region allow. >> so you are keeping an eye on the changing forecast as we all are to determine what the roads
5:13 pm
will be like for rush hour tomorrow morning? >> yes, our county managers are constantly assessing conditions and looking at the forecast and assessing conditions and the crews are out. and monitoring the situation and watching for potential refreezing and our crews are out, if needed. throughout the night and into the morning hours to get the the roads clear for the morning it commute tomorrow. >> you viewers are looking live at sky 6 hd woodhaven road at route 13. and some vehicles skidded off the roadway and gotten stuck somehow and police helping folks out that is good news. one final question you feel like this storm is under your belt. and a handle on covering it and you are going to have to bite away bit by bit. once a storm moves out. we have a lot of cleanup work to
5:14 pm
do. and hopefully the worst is past us. from the storm standpoint. right now monica it's all about clearing up, getting as much precipitation, the snow build up on the roads and getting it cleared away and we don't have the freezeupover sunlight and the main concern with the temperatures dropping and going into the morning commute tomorrow. we advise motorists to be careful on bridges and overpasses and ramps they tend to freeze up first. we advise motorists to be careful if they have to travel. >> bob kent thank you for checking with us on the phone. >> all right. our coverage of this latest march nor'easter continues on 6 abc. >> next, what is the best part of the snow, the fun with the kids and the sledding. >> and we'll take to you southwest philadelphia where the hills are live with the sound of sledders.
