word of the southbound side. the onramp from the allentown service plaza. it's not on the highway itself. it is on that ramp and still be causing a slow down as drivers pass that scene. keep that in mind. our only accident so far on the northeast extension. still have one on the pennsylvania turnpike westbound approaching valley forge and moved over to the shoulder and that's where we see some volume westbound anywhere in the morning as it lingers and makes its way. drivers make their way from fort washington out to valley forge. live look in chester county. route 30 bypass isn't looking too bad. typically at this hour we're used to seeing a heavy slow down eastbound. don't get me wrong, we're seeing volume, but traffic is still moving and that's a little bit of good news there. accident near keystone drive and new jersey turnpike southbound still have an accident there just past route 322. that's exit 2. the right lane is blocked in that area. if you're taking new jersey transit river line, keep in mind system communication issues yesterday and that's still happening this morning.

from wood haven to the vine, take you 20 to 25 minute right now. an accident and we've been following it for an hour at this point out near keystone drive a pickup truck that went off the road and hit a tree. as a result of the accident and that emergency response that is out there. that portion of route 113 is blocked off. fire police are out there directing traffic and take you a few extra minutes if you want to avoid that area. beth lehem pike is a good optio. approaching valley forge and still have an accident there on the shoulder and on this map you can see the yellow line on 422 eastbound and it is slow moving right around the st. gabe's curve but 422 as you approach oaks is not that bad. it is pretty quiet right now and that delay hasn't stretched back to route 29 just yet. drive time on 422 still looking good and nine minutes eastbound from oaks to route 202. what i want to point out in that shot is on the grassy surfaces,
so, it's actually kind of sad, but we are seeing that snow. we saw the first snowfall last night and i'm not ready to accept it yet. regardless, little bit of snowfall out there. take your time this morning, but if you're traveling 422, volume not too bad. now your nbc 10 first alert weather. >> i don't mind snow on the grassy surfaces, especially when those are surfaces eventually we'll ski on. in the pocono mountains, look at that, slopes nicely covered and that's the view from camelback and spotty in the mountains and blue mountain and they have a base going right now and you can see some of the grass making it through. cold enough that that snow may stay put right on into the weekend. you will see lots of sunshine and that will do away with some of the snow. skies are clearing and last few clouds moving through center city and live view past the comcast center. the wind, however, is blowing. it will blow the clouds over the shore out to sea. the rain has already ended at cape may. the snow has ended, also, for
the rest of the area. but the cold temperatures, well, they're just getting started. 30 right now at pottstown and concerned icy spots north and west and untreated surfaces and there may be a few spots that haven't dried out completely. but the wind will change that. the winds gusting already and we're going to see wind chills that start in the 20s only warm into the 30s right now and feels like 23 degrees in pottstown. so, a blustery cold start at the bus stop. 35 above freezing in center city and that is the wind that is going to be blowing through the day. we will warm to 36 degrees at 9:00 and then 40s this afternoon that will feel like they're in the 30s. >> brrr. >> you heard bill say be prepared for snow and the side effects may come later in the season. now is the time to sign up for school closings. alert you via text or e-mail if your school closes this winter because of the bad weather.
