we definitely saw that, here is a look at some scraping that you will have to be doing this morning, and definitely some slick conditions out here we're in the mobile weather watcher. and so we've been pretty good on the roadways, because we've been staying on these main roads, but i imagine, on the secondary roads, things will be quite slick as you can see, even driving a four wheel drive vehicle. so, definately, been saying it all morning, definately take it easy, leave extra time, because it took me about 20 minutes, at least, to de frost my car, and it looked exactly like this this morning. for now live in south philadelphia, i'm trang do, cbs-3, "eyewitness news." >> jim, rahel, back to you. >> it will be slow going, watch your step out there. thank you, trang. >> speaking of bad weather, mandatory evacuations in southern california ahead of major winter storm there. expected to bring heavy rain, mudslides to the region. residents have spent the last few days sandbagging in areas
recently devastated by the wild fires. forecasters say the storm could also bring heavy snowfall in the see era. >> well the time now 4:43,. >> katie is here with another check of the forecast, katie, i have slight admission, i know yesterday you warned us about the ice, still walking outside i could not believe how icy it was. i mean, it is bad out there. >> i thought you were going to say you took a tunnel, do you have any bandaids on, everything still working in proper order, you know. >> doing okay, but we'll see. >> well, yes. that's really the issue for the next couple of hours, so we're pent up in the studios for the next few hours, i think we'll be okay, but you have to get out the door. sometimes it is that very first step, just out to your porch, that can be the most dicey. so be extra careful. if it looks at all like it is slick or at least just wet, it probably has, in fact, slick end over to a sheet of ice. so, expect that it is probably going to be little slow out there certainly through the morning drive. and then even if you are just walking to the bus stop, you have to be careful. watch your step. but the storm, or the
disturbance, we say, has definitely made its exit. it is long gone, in fact, just the aftermath. we need to get these temperatures well enough above freezing that everything starts to be thawing out. that will will happen, in fact, today. such a nice site when you see the jet stream and the color contour map we show along with that, if starts to bring in brighter shades every orange, red it, indicates the warmth is on the way, and ma are we going to thawing out in the next couple every days, puddling left on the road by the weekends drop on the thermometer coming into the upcoming weekends. at least up through through saturday we are in fact going to be not even seasonable but well above average over the next couple every days, today closer to where we should be, back to sunshine, no where near as cold as we eventually reach 43. but again it will take couple of hours to break out of the freezing territory. tonight drops down to 25. if it hasn't had the chance to melt and dry up, it could re- freeze as a result, but looking forward, check out friday. that might as well be early
april, guys. 60 degrees with rain, so there is a trade off certainly. temperatures are going to slowly decline through saturday. so 56 is our call for the day, meisha. but it will probably be more into the 40's come kick off for the eagles. >> not bad. wow, a's, 60s, the fact we are even talking about that is awesome. good morning, everybody, so looking outside, kind of snapshot view of what you are working with out there. so this is spring garden street near the art museum. you can see kind of everything we can sea ice. we can see slush. we can see snow. we can see the whole bit. and it is very, very slippery, as we've been talking about, all morning long. so take it real easy. in fact, weaver speed restrictions in play this morning as well. looking outside, the blue route, near mid-county. volume levels nothing really to talk about right now, still really light. it will probably start to change more in the 5:00 hour. boulevard push in the southbound direction toward the schuylkill, what we're looking at there, lot of headlights out there starting to builds now. and, speed restrictions in play, 495, delaware, down to
55 miles per hour, and on the bridges, as well, so take a look at this, this is actually the ben franklin bridge. 35-mile per hour restrictions, some of the bridges, talcony, palmyra, burlington bristol, down to 25 miles per hour and adhere to the speeds because every how slippery it is, jim, back over to you. >> this saturday is the battle of the birds, number one seeded eagles take on the sixth seed in defending nfc champion atlanta falcons in south philly. >> the evening else will be facing something that's never happened in pro-football. number one seed who is the underdog in their first playoff game. that's because, back up quarterback, nick foles, will play for the injured carson wentz. but despite what the experts are saying, eagles fans say they're confident. >> they have about a 40% chance every winning. >> if you're an eagles fan, you're an eagles fan 100% all the way. >> i think if we try hard, and we play our best, we could do anything, we could beat them. >> no one plays better than philadelphia, right? >> nick foles and coach doug
pederson do have their work cut out for them, all hoping for a win, which of course means jim in his eagles seoul on monday. our sports team will get you ready for the battle of the birds saturday. join don bell, lesley van arsdall, merrill reese, and more for sunday kickoff catch it 3:30 p.m. saturday afternoon here on cbs-3. >> meanwhile still ahead on " eyewitness news" this morning , lawsuit at starbucks over its latte's. >> betting on new future ear, revel gets a new future and new name. new name. we will be right i had this chest cold, but my medicine kept wearing off.
