seven. sixteen in allentown, five in millville, and the heart of south jersey, 12 in wildwood, nine dover, six atlantic city, just little bit inland off the coast, at the airport there and 15 in trenton. so, we new it would be a very cold morning this morning. now, i'm showing you this, this is a look at the area shade in the blue, where we have the winter weather advisories that goes into effect at 1:00 a.m. for everybody. it stops about 10:00 in the morning through philadelphia, about 1:00 in the afternoon through the lehigh valley, and 5:00 o'clock in the afternoon through the poconos. so just a lot going on, as we go into tomorrow. not a lot of precipitation expected out of this. but, in some areas especially as you head toward the lehigh valley poconos, trace of ice maybe an inch of the snow and sleet mix, could be coming in. now, we've got sunshine for much of the day. the clouds do start to build as we go through the day. by 9:00 clouds cover around the area. we'll take this bit by bit. i know so many people get out early monday. this is 2:00 in the morning
in the way the computer model is pegging it right now that you would be finding this to the west of even the allentown and reading areas. by the time we hit 6:00 a.m. though, we start to see at least chances of some of this wintery mix coming into the allentown area, you may find it even to the south. so we'll watch for that, some rain is also mixed in, maybe some freezing rain is mixed in, as well, with temperatures. then by the time we hit 8:00 in the morning, through philadelphia, you might see that light wintery mix we're really not expecting anything in the way of accumulation, but you know just take it east if i there is ever freezing rain or sleet involved in nick. you just take it easy. but notice if there is also rain as the temperatures will be starting to warm little bit. this is a look at 8:00. we're still under the winter weather advisory, by the time we hit 11:00 the advisory is over for us, it does continue through the poconos until 5:00. looks like this computer model says we get some rain up through the allentown area at that point. then generally this pushes off the coast but notice this. we may get little backlash
here and you see snow flurry or two, if you did it would be brief and that would be very early into tuesday. so i think generally the transition is from ice to rain. and how much ice? well about 7:00 in the morning, this computer model says 100 of an inch through philadelphia, .03 through allentown, by the time finished with this, about .01 an inch most through the philadelphia area if that computer model is accurate. i think just use your own common sense tomorrow morning. temperatures may be below the freezing mark and if you see precipitation, assume it is probably little bit icy. temperatures today though, are going to be not all that bad. because they will be in the 30's. they'll be in the 30's tomorrow with the moisture, by the time we get to tuesday, in the 30's again but it will be dry. which we're so happy about. thirty-seven philadelphia, shore, 38 today and the poconos, 28 degrees. it is dry in every single location. our temperatures, not made that much worse by the wind, only about 5 miles an hour
today. tonight we drop down to 30 degrees, the wintery mix will begin in many areas so umbrellas up pets in, keep dry in this mess. or monday, 36 degrees, we go that wintery mix to some rain. and then the rest of the week, does not look bad. nicole, in the 30's. >> all right carol thank you. on the cbs-3 health watch flu numbers continue to grow here in our area. in delaware, there are over a thousand cases where last year at this time there were 100. emergency departments are flooded with patient and our health reporter stephanie stahl looked into it. >> thirteen week old carlos is hospitalized at abington health with the flu and pneumonia. >> the younger you are the weaker your immune system, more likely tour have secondary complications. >> i wanted to cry right then and there when they told me, but i have to be strong for him. >> carlos is too young for flu shot, but his mom made sure everyone else in the family got the vaccine. the problem is this year's
vaccine is only about 30% effective, and influenza is now an epidemic. >> very easily spread t can live on surfaces for hours. so even if you're not in direct contact with someone if they touch something recently then you may still be able to catch it. >> carlos' mom says the family has been out a lot recently. >> maybe one of the trips that we went out or during the holidays probably he got something from there. >> the baby was among more than 270 patients seen in abington's emergency department on monday alone. it was so busy the hospital went on a temporary divert status which rarely happens here. >> we were unable to move people through in which case we had a number of patients down in the emergency department, which limited our ability to see new people. >> doctor steven fisher says only people with flu complications are admitted. others are usually sent home with a prescription for tamiflu, which has been in short supply in some places. >> i think it is flu season of significance.

back to you. >> ann thank you. >> choosing new carpets for your home is pretty big decision. one you'll have to live with for quite a long time. jim donovan takes a look at some of the things you should consider before buying new carpet. >> flooring expert harry says carpet can last about ten years, with proper maintenance. so, people don't buy it very often. but, he says, when they do, they often makes some simple mistakes. >> one of the things that some people do, they take it outside in a natural light. and they'll try and get the true color. well, the issue is you don't live outside. so the carpet is not going to have the same appearance outside as it is inside. your best bet lay it down in the room you will have it installed, look at it from attendance like walking in the room. also look at it in different lighting overnight when the lights overhead are and also during the day when the sun is shining up.
>> don't overlook the importance of padding. the padding is the least expensive component after carpet purchase. so to move from, you know, basic gray pad up to one step up, or slightly more dense cushion; very, very minimal dollars. everyone should consider it or at least get the option to buy better cushions. >> also, don't forget to ask about any fees, for services like hauling away old carpeting or moving furniture. for more advice from angie on buying carpet, visit cbsphilly.com/angie's list. i'm jim
