that's at the interim level about four feet. at the ground could be a couple degrees warmer. eventually the colder air may make it down to the surface. we have to keep watching the areas north and west. i-95 southward it's way warm enough to not worry about any kind of icing at the shore. it's almost 50 degrees already and warmer air coming in. and look how much colder it is than yesterday in many places, 20 to 30 degrees colder. plus the wind chill. now not much on the radar close by. those drops are tiny, too small for radar to detect. that's just some drizzle. unfortunately with those temperatures it's freezing drizzle in some places. now, this is not drizzle. back out to the west, that is a solid area of rain and some of this is freezing rain, moving eastward. we don't have any snow to deal with during the night tonight. this is all about freezing rain and freezing drizzle. so some icing to 1:00 a.m.
4:48 pm
that's why the winter weather advisory is in effect for pretty much areas north and west of the philadelphia area. all of chester county, the upper portion of bucks, upper montgomery as well. but there still could be isolated places a little bit closer in that have icing, especially on driveways and sidewalks and on the car windshields. but eventually the temperature is going up. that will mean less and less icing overnight. the rain itself will get heavier late this evening. and by tomorrow morning, there still could be light rain or drizzle plus fog around. the temperature will be several degrees higher than it is now. so not anticipating any icing in the morning, no snow in the morning. tomorrow even though we got a lot of clouds we may see temperatures at or above 50. could see a couple of showers if any sun comes out. during the night tonight, we have temperatures slowly rising. we have rain and fog overall,
4:49 pm
but for the next few hours we have the threat of freezing rain, freezing drizzle north and west. even north and west, the cold spots, i expect the temperature to go up as the wind shifts into the southwest. that will warm us up more tomorrow, 50 or above. even with the cloudy day, patchy, rain, fog in the morning. not the prettiest day but not as cold as today. the one pretty day is thursday. it's going to be a little on the chilly side and rain comes in by friday night, lasts into saturday. that seems to be a pretty good bet that it's going to rain on saturday. and an increasing bet that it will rain on sunday and a chance that it will rain on monday as well, all from the same system that just doesn't move. stolen valor investigation. >> the story we first showed you last night that has everybody talking on social media. nbc 10 did some more digging on the potential dishonor, why a man dressed as a member of the military may not face charges. then all new tonight on nbc 10 news at 5:00, this video
