6:09 am
if you take a look down the street, you see those two cars trying to make their way through. that's because someone got so stuck, now that van and that car you see backing up are trying to get around that vehicle, which basically just stayed in the middle of the street because it got stuck and they realized the street was impassable, and no other choice but to leave the car there. that car was in the street when we got there. and it doesn't stop there. right around the corner, lock down the street. that is absolutely the right term. no way he can get down the street. the driver right here understood that, and this car, too, is parked here in the middle of the street. and since we have been out here this morning, a few residents said thanks for being here,

6:30 am
all night. however, because the temperatures dropped so much last night, there was a lot of refreezing on those tracks. they wanted to have service back up and running on 7 of the 12 lines by 5:00 this morning, then we heard an hour ago that it was going to be delayed until 7:00. and now some partial service has resumed. >> we thought it was far better to let people know, hold off on heading to the station than to be standing on the platform for a train that might not be able to get going. as soon as we were able to get tracks moving, we started doing that. >> yeah, so again they were hoping for 7:00, obviously the train came through here a couple minutes ago, so they are ahead of that schedule. late from the 5:00 5:00 a.m. deadline. there is no service scheduled for that today. live, kristen thorne, eyewitness news. >> kristen, thank you very much.

we have a lot of delays and cancellations. this mess we had with the snow is now going to be an issue with the temperatures warming up. is that correct, amy? >> during the day today, we'll have lots of sunshine. the temperatures are going to go above freezing and a south wind. all those will contribute to melting across the area. tonight, we'll have refreezing. temperatures right now close to 30 degreeses in stark park. just it 1 for newark. north central new jersey, temperatures are just right around 10:00, 11:00. it's very cold. a hard freeze occurring there. any spots showing melty have refrozen overnight. so be careful.

one, neighbors did come together to help each other dig out and with cars, they said maybe the city didn't do as good as it could have, residents stepped up to take care of each other. like this one. and again, we're going to try and get some response from the city in terms of what we can do. for newark, 4:00 this morning, we're okay. side streets are a different story. a reminder, public schools closed today. streets should be the next priority here in newark, rob nelson, channel 7 eyewitness news. >> and some communitys are still buried under almost 3 feet of snow. our cameras found plows and front loaders removing snow a couple a hours ago.

process, or treated with the salt. as they deal with the melting and refreeze, those areas are very slick, and this is going to be a process, it's affected travel on some of the commutes and the rail ways, also going to affect people outside your own front door. be careful on the stoop trying to get out and about. the temperatures will be slowly rising and we're expecting a lot of sunshine as the sun comes up, it really is going to be a beautiful looking day. it won't be that pretty looking down at all the snow melt and gung around. wear the right shoes. feels like 22 degrees. windchills in and around the borrows are in the low 20s, brooklyn, the exception. feels like 14. we are second on the all-time top snowstorm list. second best by just .1 inches. can you believe we were that close? that's the official reporting station.
6:47 am
did make the top total for the all-time snowiest storms. despite all the temperatures, wind will come out of the southwest today and that will help with the melting. heads up for snow and icicles, especially during direct sunlight, and the refreezing creates black ice and slippery conditions. be aware of that. we will have some rain on tuesday. it's not too much rain and that is the key factor. a little shower activity could be okay to help us melt down. the drains are cleared. timing on the future cast, spotty rain showers and out of here by 7:00. it's not an all-day rain, but it will help rinse away some of the snow. 35 is the high. tonight, going below freezing. the numbers will be more extreme, where we could have
6:48 am
readings again in the spots where we have the most snow. it will be too difficult to get temperatures to stay above 20 degrees. accuweather seven-day forecast gives us a stretch of 35 to low 40s. this is critical in making sure we can handle the snow melt. with the gradual melting on top, it seems for favorable conditions. one key factor is making sure there's a plies for the water go. only only on the curbs, but making sure it is drained away from your home. you don't want to create a mound, it's coming back toward the house. that will create big problems. good luck, stay safe out there and we'll have some information online. if you're still wondering about snow totals, back to you guys. >> over to heather.
