we have weather to get to. all right, so if we must, yes. i think trying to hold back, because i don't want to tell you about the cold. that's no fun. but at least we do have much much better news to tell but as the week progresses here, take a look at ocean sit, blanketed in some snow. how about the system on saturday? what a sharp gradient that set up as well from all of the snow that did end up rolling through our area. but at this point, we are just left in the clear. high pressure on our side. eyewitness weather watch remembers reporting some very, very frigid air, zero, 0 degrees, out in the chad worth area, nice clear atlantic city, pine lan section of the south region, yes, it is really cold. one below zero, even worse, for mary ann, also nice clear sky. thankfully no wind though. that's our saving grace. granted one below zero doesn't feel that great. but definitely beats having to factor in the windchill. finds couple higher values here if we can.
in fact, i take you off to the north, 10 degrees, rather nine, hit the wrong one, 9 degrees out in lawrenceville from peter do. have handful of low teens also being reported by the watch they are morning. going nationwide. for the next thing in the pipeline for our area. that comes in the form of actually two separate warmfront, the beginning of the first system, across the great lakes, then you have all of the soaking rain back down to california. and the snow lifting into the dakotas, montana, that's what's eventually drawn through our area, as another warmfront. but, still, incredible amounts of rain, which they could use, but in the south, going to lead to serious flooding. so looking at projected rain and the, down across california, it is absolutely unbelievable. over 4 inches every rain over the next few days, modest tow, peco, out over three and a half. so really incredible rainfall rates for those areas in the next couple every days. again, you know, you can always have too much after good thing. so they do need the rain.
look at what we will ends up here. a lot of goodness down the road here. flirting with of zero both thursday, friday, but at the price of some drizzle tomorrow. maybe freezing rain, drizzle off to the northwest, wednesday, some additional rain. meisha? >> all right, katie, thank you so much the good morning, everyone, still tracking this accident. we have been talking about it all morning long, heads up just waking up with us, very slick conditions out there. good morning. overturned septa bus in the median, see it, there under belly of the septa bus, see crews trying to get this owed out of the way. it will take a while. pass knights road. no passengers were on that bus. but all lanes right now are still blocked. you're being diverted to knights road or alternate if you want to avoid it altogether, 59 to bristol pike, 513, probably your best bet. plus take a look, another accident here. now, this is platt bridge westbound, we have an accident, mid-span. so, all of thee travelers moving in the eastbound direction. this is the westbound side. you can see it is right now closed off. westbound at penn rose closed. traffic moving onto 26th street however.
