6:02 am
the south of us. so all of the precipitation is in advance of the storm, everything we're getting right now. so, what we're watching and we will continue to watch all day is the line between rain and& snow, you see it cutting through delaware, and through part of south jersey, right now. we will continue to keep an eye on that. our number of the day, with the worse yet to come, and difficult travel ahead, going with two out of ten, bus stop buddy has a lot of clothing on, because it will be a rough day. now you see the roads are mostly just wet here in old city, degree above freezing, feels like 24. we will stay in the 30's, all day long. the temperature of course will determine the type of precipitation we will lay it all out for you coming up. mike masses co-of course we sent you out tide because you're tough. >> absolutely, not bad morning thus far. all about intensity with the storm, and with the light snow intensity, you're not going to get much in the way of accumulations, but that's going to ramp up in a big way.
6:03 am
we got dumpster fire of weather coming into late morning hours and into the afternoon hours. >> pretty impressive looking storm, on our satellite radar composite now. actually back in up for you, show you, that's actually fox future cast showing you the tail end of the storm. we've got a lot more to to get through unfortunately in terms of very, very heavy snow expected to move in as we get into the afternoon hours. so again, the deals will be, we have a long duration storm, there we go, bring to you what you should know what you need to know. it is 11:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. crunch time when we get slam down and smashed around with snow gusty winds, snow bands, and i think even thunder and lightning component, testimony al to the strength of the storm, of course travel will be ill-advised through the course of your day with our visibility coming down to around zero. so nothing happening here in old city and center city for that matter.
6:04 am
but that's going to change in a big way later this morning, weaver new information coming in, sue and i are going to analyze it little bit, we will share it with you coming up in just a little bit. here is bob kelly. >> can we watch them analyze that? i think that would be pretty good. >> sure. >> sitting down with the maps, their graph paper. 6:04, good morning, live look at route 202 and limekiln pike snow and rain coming at you, this is the appetizer to everything that's going to happen. 459 speed restrictions in play, down to 55, coming in from new jersey the wet heavy kind of snow already dragging down some of the tree branches and even pulling down power lines, route 73 at route 130 over here in pennsauken, crews are working this morning, over in new jersey, they kicked in a state of emergency, mixed messages though, i think because the mt. laurel school district, has school today, half day, and then it is parent teacher conferences
6:05 am
cents. so, over here in new jersey, the restricted travel on some of the roadways, speed restrictions on the new jersey turnpike, 295 brooklawn circle closed because of high water all due to high tide that kick in at 5:30, also some flooding down at the atlantic city, the end of the atlantic city expressway. so far so good for mass transit. if you really must travel, the sun way, the market frankford line, trains running around the clock every 20 minutes, mike and alex back over to you. >> this is what we have planned. alex annually sit here, until at least 1:00 in the afternoon. and these three reporters will be out there all morning long. we got your jenn fred there in montgomery county. who else, lauren over there in quakertown, right? >> right. then steve keeley in the lehigh valley. >> over at the wegmans. >> all right. do you want to start with lauren johnson? looks like she has actual flakes in bucks county. lauren? >> reporter: hey, guys, so yes, these flakes are falling much slower than they have been for the last two hours, when we got here around
6:06 am
3:15 a.m. this morning it was pretty steady snow falling, you can see enough to sort of coat the areas that have not been salted out herement the roads are just wet from the rain that fell first. then the snow came down. so there is a light coating on everything. we've made our way over to the quakertown borough. here is the deal, mike and alex. there was a city council meeting scheduled here for 7:30 tonight. you guys know that's not going to happen. right? but there is still single man out here salting the sidewalks right near the front door trying to keep people safe who might show up in this area and then about to show this way, a plow truck coming through, look clearing the area out. so we've been seeing them all morning, at the wawa for about two hours earlier today. and they kept coming through, fueling up, then i asked one of the guys, where are you headed? he kind of seemed like he was still sleepy. he said i don't know yet because the worse of this hasn't fallen yet. but these guys are busy. they'll be busy all morning. then we spotted this over here. near the quakertown borough
6:07 am
offices. the salt is over here in a little like barn area. cup guys see that? so i guess this is where they come and sort of refuel the trucks, and salt, you know, put the salt back in the back of the trucks. isn't that kind of cool. >> very cool. >> yes. >> all right. see how much we knock that down today. >> we should keep an eye on it, maybe take a picture before and after. >> oh, that's good. >> remember david, we brought in for the daily news, he took amazing shot of that salt stack up there. knocking it down? >> yes. we'll show it to you. >> you know lauren used to work in orlando. >> and now here in the snow. >> boy did you blow it three years ago. steve keeley, in allentown, are you with the wegmans there? that thing i think is open 24 hours a day. love that store. >> what told you the wegmans, big neon sign that said wegmans, was cents that the give away? by the way, yesterday, you

6:09 am
saying watch out you'll get wallopped the worse. since you said we're on at 2:00 i have a feeling i'm not going to get home until it is dark out today. because if we don't leave until 2:00 this will be three hour drive back. so i'm in for long day i'm sure. i'm not complaining. >> no, certainly not. >> all right, but he was up at midnight. so that will give him, well, that's a long day. >> it is a long day. we appreciate you, steve. by the way we have the picture i was talking about by david. >> the salt barn? >> the salt barnment look at this one. >> wow. >> isn't that beautiful? it is a black and white photo. >> huge. >> at the philadelphia streets department shed in north philly. >> yes, we call it margaritaville. jenn fred is out, is she roaming around today? where are you now jen? >> i'm in pottstown. i'm in lovely pottstown. and as you can see, the snow is coming down a little bit harder than it has been in the past hour or so. come on back. we will tell you everything you need to know about upper montgomery count

6:13 am
6:14 am
with strayer university's mba program today. what about baby's soap? way to test things this paper represents proteins in your baby's skin. only baby dove with our 1/4 moisturizing cream, ...
6:15 am
...leaves baby skin more nourished... ...with every bath. >> promises cents, promise. >> i have some good news. >> what's that? >> at the airport, there have been some concellations cents, my cousin? from tennessee, he just made it out. >> oh, thank goodness. >> so, not all of the flights are cancelled. >> no,. >> you just have to check. >> you know, it will be a morning of cliche's, let me do one right now, hey, before you head out to the airport, check with your airline, because there will be some delays. >> right. >> ya, sue? >> this is a challenge.
6:16 am
>> having some camera issues, so you won't see me. which is probably just fine. oh, wait. i didn't want to show that. but there. that's what i wanted to show. i will say, that i drive by the airport every day, on my way to work, today it took everything in me not to make a hard right and just hop on a flight somewhere. because look what's happened this morning. we've got an expansion of our winter storm warning now, with a possibility of heavier snowfall, if places like new castle county, delaware, salem county, new jersey, gloucester, camden, part of burlington have been included now, in our winter storm warning. again, with those snowfall rate of an inch or two per hour at the height of the storm. so, weaver our storm forming. it is getting cranked up now. off shore we've been talking for couple every days about the transfer of energy here, and there you see, this ohio storm weakening as the strength starts coming to the off shore storm. but, this is way ahead of the storm, all of the
6:17 am
precipitation we're getting right now, so with this thing expected to be with us, through about 7:00 or so this evening, it has a long way to go. but, we have few dry slots here, lehigh county, north of allentown, we have some places cents where we see some heavier snow, potentially falling around west depford, around runnemede, cherry hill, in new jersey, adventurous trip down the a.c. expressway with some snow changing over to rain as you make your trip. some heavy rain around bridgeton, new jersey, possibly a mix of rain and snow there. it is all rain in cape may county. and in southern delaware. as we look at the future cast, and we watch that rain-snow line, as we will be with you all day, you see some heavy snow, cranking up around 11:00. and that warmer air, trying to get to us, and probably not. so we do have a chance for that heavy snow to really pile up, even here in the city, and across the river in new jersey, we will watch it all with you all afternoon, as we
6:18 am
continue, looks like, 7:00, 8:00 when we're going to see the end of this storm. so the height of the storm, saying, between is 11:00 a.m., 5:00 p.m., heavy snow falling at the rate of inch or two per hour, winds gusting up to 35 or 45 miles per hour, trees and power lines could come down with the storm. already seeing the branches, very heavy, with the wet snow, the places are getting snow. and reduced visibility difficult to travel. so, these are snowfall estimates. we could go up or down, bob kelly, depending on how much rain mixes in. >> whole deciding factor, 6:18. kicking offer this one, market frankford broad street subway running on regular weekday schedule. that's the best bet. really have to go out, think about what's going to happen, how you will get back later on this afternoon. yes, not that bad right now. but that will certainly& changement septa running on saturday schedule for regional rails, no service on the cynwyd, delays and concellations likely across the board throughout the day. high-speed line running service every 20 minutes,
6:19 am
amtrak and patco have made some service adjustments. the city of philadelphia, the snow emergency, kicks in at 8:00 a.m. no parking on the snow emergency routes, i put link up for those route up on my facebook and twitter pages. live look here, delaware avenue, in philadelphia, and let's bring in from penndot headquarters, chelsey is on the phone with us, chelsey, good morning. >> reporter: good morning. >> anything going on right now? anything to report as far as penndot? i know that you guys couldn't put down the brine yesterday. but just kind of i saw bunch of salt trucks just waiting in the wings here this morning. >> yes. still pretty quiet. we are waiting for the snow to accumulate for the plows to put their blades down. but they're out there, salting, already, and -- >> chelsey, one thing i want to point out, you have new feature up on the website. you can track the plow trucks, right? >> yes, at 511pa. com. >> check this out. we have it up on our screen right now. so you go to 051pm.
6:20 am
com. up comes the whole area. you zoom on in. >> zoom in. >> now which plow truck are you in, chelsey? can we find you here this morning? >> so accurate? you are able to see where the trucks are. then how frequently that roadway has been plowed or salted, right? >> that's correct. so this is a great feature. of course we're urging people to avoid travel if possible. but if you have to go out, you should turn to this website so you can schedule and choose the safest routes according to the last time. >> penndot truck number 77, stopped at wawa for coffee. just report that. okay? mike and alex, back to you guys. >> thank you so much, bob. and thank you, chelsey. >> okay, the time now is 6:20. >> let's get back out there. what do you say? >> well, we will look at the snow totals here.

6:45 am
>> definately starting to see a significant change in the storm here. live look at 202 right in west chester, again, roads are wet. you got the snow sticking to the grassy surface. kind of weighing down the trees. now, look at 95 here, northeast philadelphia. this is starting to see the 95 corridor, get hit with the heavy flakes, and of course, the poor visibility. and then here is a live look at the ben franklin bridge, same deal. so things are certainly starting to change, as we get ready for i guess we call it the second course of the storm. route 73, route 130, pennsauken, some downed wires right at the interchange. 495, speed restrictions up and down the entire mess.
6:46 am
but right here again we don't have the heavy band of snow yet. still dealing with just that rain-snow mix. now, the snow emergency for philly, kicks in at 8:00 a.m. no parking on the snow emergency routes. which includes streets like right out front mere, market street, i put link up, to the emergency routes on my facebook and twitter pages, so make sure your car is not park on those routes, or the ppa will be happy to move it for you. sue has got the forecast in 15 seconds. >> quick example what's going on out, there honeybrook, on the chester-lancaster county line. looks so pretty with the snow starting to pile up, the grasses and the trees, but then with the wet heavy snow the tree limb will get very heavy as you just saw, the
6:47 am
wind are picking up, as well. winter storm warning extended down to new castle, sam err, gloss cents at the, camden, part of burlington counties, possibility of heavier snowfall there. still seeing the energy transfer to that coastal storm, so all of the precipitation we have now is in advance of the actual storm, which arrives later this morning, early this afternoon. so, we will continue to watch that rain-snow line for you, as looking up to the north where steve keeley is, we had dry slots up there this morning, but pockets of heavier accumulating snow around west depford, here in philadelphia, around upper darby, delco, and there is the line around pit grove, between the rain and the snow, so very, probably, very shrubbery, heavier rain knawling cape may. quick look at the future cast shows the possibility of the snow really piling up after 11:00. if it hangs around before the exit of the storm, that is when we could get to the double digit accumulations, as the rest of the afternoon goes on, so we expect exit time of the storm to be around seven-ish, this evening, heavy wet snow, at the height of the
6:48 am
storm, and that snow will fall at a rate of one to 2 inches per hour. so mike and alex being factor in the winds, trees and power lines could come down as well. mike masco is outside. who am i tossing to, mike? there you are. >> you got to laugh offer you'll start crying, right. >> good morning, everybody, you know, this is a storm where it is not about how you start the day, it is how you will finish this day. we know is going to be a bad storm as we get into the afternoon hours, i want to show you waist going on on radar. very interesting looking storm. you look at this, you go, mike, this is not looking very good. but look out toward cincinnati. chicago, st. louis, see the huge swirl in that's about a 300-mile swirl of action, that is the energy that's transferred to the coast and it will allow for that low pressure cente center sitting rt over hatteras to go gang busters. we're forecast that to happen later this morning, into the afternoon hours. we're fine tuning the forecast
6:49 am

6:50 am
beginning to come outside. and seeing it stick on the back roads as you're seeing, you can see the trees are particularly heavy -- heavy. so i think as the storm progresses cents we'll see a lot more of those trees come down, wires come down, not ton of accumulation right now, but zero but that's what we have out here. and we have the big flakes, so the snow, it is happening in the suburbs, guys, back into you. >> we got big flakes. also, michael has something big here, michael owe answer wants to show us his sausage, we'll try to get that on the air. >> oh, there is the sausage. >> thank you, michael. those actually are -- >> header and beer brats. >> manny love when you pop that skin open, you know, it squirt out? ya. pennsauken our next location. >> that's where thomas is. >> hey, thomas. >> boy you guys will be all hungry this morning, just passed the cinnamon sin diner. can you guys hear me? good morning to you, along 130 here. up and down the road. i tell you, you go a mile or
