we are looking ahead, my friend to some very interesting ups and downs a lot more downs then anything when it comes to the the thermometer readings but we have a couple different systems working their way through next few days to dictate how our pattern shakes out and we will start off with storm scan, why not, it shows both systems in question here, first of which, it is a cold front crossing through. we were talking about that earlier in the show. rain is tapering off, worst of the win, also tapering off, we are starting to see skies clear. here's the next storm system ushering in snow across idaho, western montana that will pull in the planes and start to pull into even having an area of low pressure develop on the tail even. frontal boundary that crosses through. we will show that that more localized here, out of here, clearing skies, and high pressure takes its place. the just a nice break between systems tomorrow. we will get sunshine and big cool down to go with it. here you go that cold front moving in next and it does again have an area of low pressure that develops on the
tail even. it is more moisture this time. this is around 9:00 in the morning on thursday important to note this is a model but regardless we do have a good chance to get most of our thursday morning dry, drive-in before we deal with this. not only rain but yes, possibly some snow. it is at least at on set in philadelphia before what eventually has too much warmth to keep it as snow, turning over to rain in the city. far enough north you may even up with a couple inches of snow here. this is something that will be fine tunas we get closer, it is a thursday concern, primarily in the first half of the day, we will be watching that rain/snow line as the week goes on, but i'm thinking that best chance for any accumulation will be, northern third of our other delaware valley. that means it is as far south as upper bucks, western montgomery county but i don't think philadelphia will see accumulation although it may start that way. slow travel, always a given whether it is rain or snow. evolving situation which we will keep awe breast of. for now even if you want it, you wouldn't get it even at
mount pocono 47 degrees. very mild start. birmingham, of course, with 70 at this hour. you can see just by looking at color contour where this cold front is crossing through. it is below zero on the thermometer in bismarck. that is kind of cold coming our way in the days ahead. so we jump you all the way to new years, 37, come midnight for all of you party animals, it is a chilly, ushering in 2017. we will see fire works around that time around this shot. 58 degrees at palmyra cove nature park, very mild beginning to the afternoon for us, obviously but cold era waits, take a look by friday we won't hit 40 degrees. stay there we will be right
