that i want you to just pay attention to the car thermometer, could get little slick, not huge huge deal. so, again, not major storm system for our area. eventually, really significant warming trends is eventually going to be hitting our area, and as that happens, temperatures go on serious surge. soap, that's what we will be looking ahead to here. we start things off by getting you outside, show you what's going on storm scan, little wider zoom. you can see heavier snowfall intensity certainly, not just out to sea but also really coming down across portions of massachusetts, connecticut, so that again, pretty much where you're seeing the brunt of this storm system track through. and at this point any kind of what i would say at least significant accumulation is going to be confined primarily down toward the shore town. philly you're done with it, and further inland you're done with this, so, you will be walking out the door specially if your travels take you west to just, again, lingering damp roads, and no additional precipitation at this point. wider zoom, we do start to see high pressure taking the place of this storm system, and it is very quiet map all things
considered. basically, east of the rockies, say, for this storm system still departing. so at this point we can expect pretty quiet weather. there is huge warming trends that comes along with this, so for now the chill is in place. we keep it below average, both today and tomorrow, looking ahead to wednesday, see how the jet stream sort of leafs off. that will will set the stage for the warmth to come in, as we see another round of a southerly push of air. so, when that happens, you are going to really see chance to warm things up in our atmosphere, before the next cold front comes along, it will happen later in the week, by friday back into some cooler territory. so that said, how does this all pan out? looking at just the numbers, clearing skies for you today, blustery day though, winds not going to be any joke in the wake of the storm system, ten to 20-mile per hour out of the northwest, sun doesn't feel like 50 degrees, that's the bottom line. make sure you have nice heavier coat ready to go. mostly clear, brisk, cold tonight, drop to 31, we do sort of see the win taper off for tomorrow. not bad day. pretty seasonable frankly, we flirt with 70 come wednesday, not bad at all. new cold front on the move by
thursday, but look at that 71 degrees, late in the day just watch for shower. that though really looking like decent day overall, then see the temperatures get knock back by the weekend, back to you. >> thank, katie. flyers continue their playoff push when they take on the island nerves brooklyn tonight. the flyers have won seven of the last ten games. the islanders though have won five straight. now the flyers, they'll be without goalie michael, for the three weeks with a lower body injury. that means, he's likely out for the rest of the regular season. right now the flyers are three points behind the red wings, and five behind the islanders, for the last eastern conference playoff spot. the sixers hosting boston celtics last night, for the last pro game at the well before this weekend's rather next weekends' march madness sweet 16 action in south philly. the sixers got 26 points from carl, but just was in the enough. the celtics isiah thomas also had 26. boston beat the home team 120 to 105 to sweet the -- sweep

winter storm that's out there. still pretty close by, in fact, the skies are as clear as they are, this is retreating quickly weeks put things into motion, all snow right now, for example, but very light, because we have pretty warm ground, won't see this have a chance even in the eastern count toys accumulate very much. maybe to up an inch in some spots. current wind speeds at this point, pretty light. don't get used to, that we will eventually start to see it turn more northwest, across the board also pick up in intensity probably ten to 20 miles per hour throughout the day. so i would say skies start to clear, the wind that becomes the weather headline asker the storm pulls away. 50 degrees the coolest day of the next seven, we go on variable roller coaster ride over the next seven days here too. look that at that, 71 degrees later on today. >> thanks so much, katie, good morning, everyone, happy monday to you, yes, it is damp, look looking little wet out there, but kicking off the
