4:31 am
>> yes. >> we have a lot we're looking at this morning. war of it hasn't happened yet but take the balance of the day it will be a three, just yucky, out there. rainy and breezy, and he is ready for that to blow inside out at some point today. we have a lot of snow in the western part of the state and upstate new york, for us it is mostly a rain event with temperatures in the 40's, as we get started this morning but with this storm here's what we are looking at and things to keep in mind today. we are getting rain, wet snow, damaging winds we have a high win warning in effect, and coastal concern for back bay flooding and beach erosion. and power outages are possible as well with these wins. so yes temperatures will probably go down during the day, in the lower 40's and wet snow could be blowing around, along with the rain, and northwesterly winds gusting at least to 45 miles an hour, probably more, at times, so,
4:32 am
just a fun day to be out and about, um, mike masco. >> oh, boy. >> yuck. >> yeah, this is one of those mornings, man. if you can take septa or new jersey transit coming into philadelphia do it because today is a are changeable day as sue mentioned. this morning coming in the with the rain and could go back home with the snow. we have a couple issues this is boulevard at whittaker avenue still, northbound lanes from an accident tying things up. it looks like we have cleared things out on blue route and 76, that is good news but bridges and crediting this afternoon with the high winds expect high wind warnings across the delaware valley bridges are subject to cross winds so that could be dangerous. we could see speed restrictions being put in to place during the course of the day. forty-two freeway lag good. be very careful with ponding, water on the roadways, we have seen in new jersey on 295 and as we cross from trenton into say feasterville there are issues on route one.
4:33 am
no major delays coming out of philadelphia international airport but be careful, certainly check in with your car year, we will talk more traffic and weather together coming up in a bit, guys. >> thanks, mike. so this system we have been saying all morning will be with us throughout the day here so please be careful. lets get to rehoboth beach. good morning to you. this is calm, things are about to crank up here so rehoboth be careful. we're expecting heavy rains, high winds and they culled reach 60 miles an hour. we have team coverage, we have crews all over the place but first lets get right to steve keeley because he is in atlantic city first and new in vent are in, steve. >> reporter: i'm the ninth batter in the order on this team it seems and always getting the brunt of the weather but right now not so bad. just light rain. i have a slate roof at home. it felt like i was sleeping in the drum. very loud rain overnight in burlington county and now a
4:34 am
light rain but yard already saturated where i was walking earlier in the week walk despite in rain and your feet with get drench. so now yard is completely under water again we have not had heaviest of the rain yet. this is vent are in heights in the back bay where sue just said could get worst of it. look at this brand new sea wall or bulkhead depending whatever term you want to use for it, brand new about to get its first test. they got that in just in time because there is back bay and it looks low thinking how can that water somehow flood over. well, it did. where wearies notoriously flooded and these houses got completely wiped out. that is why there is new condition trucks and brand new houses. look at that stairwell, reason that is so high that first floor, they are not going to live on their first floor anymore that is vacant a big tall crawl space because you can see compared to the house next to it their first floor
4:35 am
would get flooded if this ever gets flooded again. the houses were either put up high, jacked up, or rebuilt because they were so badly damaged here in the back bay area of ventnor heights. it is beautiful, probably very long walk to the beach over a mile but a lot of people have a good life here in the back bays most have the time except when these things erupt during big storms like today. so look at it while it is calm because as those wins kick up, later in the morning 10 and 11:00 o'clock and rain starts to fall hard, it will be a wick 24 hours here and then tides will lay on top of each other so that water will probably blow over, this sea wall later today. my advice for this weekend for all of our viewers all over the place keep your phone fully charge at all times because you never know when that pur will get out and you dent want that even if down to 10 percent wondering how you will juice it up. you don't want to go out tour car if your car in the middle of the street getting drenched
4:36 am
sitting in your car charging your phone. keep that phone charge all weekend because you dent need a tree to go down in front of your house to lose your all town's power as we have learned at one time or another during these severe storms. with the ground so wet like a sponge these tree roots will blow over if they get 60 to 70 . watch out. >> without a doubt. >> say it time and time again great reminder steve, thank you. from the shore all across the delaware valley we have you conferred. blue mountain in the poconos this morning. they are expecting self inches of snow this morning changing over. we will update what you can expect in the poconos. here in our area, olde city, it will be the rain, heavy rain, jenny joyce in olde city this morning, hi there jenny. >> reporter: we are seeing steady rain falling. we have in the seen much of that wind just rain, puddles are starting to accumulate here on market street right
4:37 am
outside the station. i was checking philadelphia international airport is there always a chance for delays, cancellations but they were even tweeting last night as rain just began falling in anticipation of this storm saying that a number of airlines will be working with passengers, because of the storm, rescheduling flights, waving that cancellation fee, and then change flight fee i know american airlines, delta airlines they are doing just that. my uber driver on the way to work this morning said of course as we are seeing from steve keeley's live shot that new jersey was in worse shape then philly is right new but we know there are several concerns in the just in new jersey. last night we were live in bucks county where people were concerned about the delaware river flooding because they are still drying out from last weeks rainfall. we will bring you conditions not only in new jersey but throughout our coverage area as the morning goes on. karen and thomas. >> can't wait to see those images be safe. we have got you covered

up just yet with this storm but we see pockets of the heavy downpours as we start our day this morning. if you are in southern delaware you are not getting anything. keep in mind when we're looking at radar you see white it doesn't necessarily mean it is snow as it reaches the ground but it has to go through several layers of the atmosphere. temperatures are in the 40's this morning. if you see snowflakes in chester or lancaster county don't be surprised we are expecting a change over to snow in the poconos mountains and decent accumulations to the north of us. that has not happened just yet we will see dry slots as we have banding of the rain but it is raining here in the city right new and very light rain at the shore as steve has shown you it hasn't gotten into full capacity just yet. checking winds to get started because wind is a big part of the storm, we have sustain wind of 29 miles an hour in dover, delaware, wind sustain at 17 miles an hour, windy here with a 26-mile an hour wind gust, 40 miles an hour in dover but this hasn't got tone where it will be either.
