11:15 am
government. the nor'easter that is headed in our direction is bringing rain to the south. weather channel meteorologist mike seidel shows us what is happening in atlanta. good morning, renee. from what was a wet friday morning rush hour from the metro area and the southeast, light rain right now, but traffic here on the downtown connector, that's 75 and 85 get together and come through right through the downtown area is moving fine through the late morning hours. the rain showers will be continuing on and off through the afternoon here in atlanta. temperatures are chilly in the mid-40s. we had five days in the 60s earlier this week and last weekend. heaviest rain by far has been down through the florida panhandle, flash flood watches posted for the tallahassee area panama city until dinner time. this storm is going to make the turn and go up the coast and the moisture here will impact you in philadelphia later tonight and saturday. and it will start off as frozen precipitation as snow. heaviest snows by far won't likely be north and west of boston through down east main
11:16 am
where some areas could pick up six inches of snow. if you're traveling out of philly, down in this direction, towards atlanta, into the southeast over the weekend, sunny skies and temperatures by sunday here around 60. renee, back to you. now your nbc 10 first alert weather with chief meteorologist glenn "hurricane" schwartz. >> i'll take it from here. used to do what mike is doing right now. chasing the weather all over the country. and now we have got first alert that is going to be tonight and into saturday. there is probably going to be another one from sunday night into monday. so let's not forget that one. that may very well interfere with the monday morning rush. two weekend storms to deal with but we have a big break in between. we have got many many hours of decent weather this weekend. so you don't need to cancel everything. we have some pretty decent weather right now.
11:17 am
just some high thin clouds not much wind at all. the temperature not that cold. it is 34 degrees. doesn't feel much colder because the wind is only 6 miles an hour. but it did get down into the 20s this morning. the roads are pretty cold. especially to the north and west where it is barely above freezing or at the freezing mark right now. and nobody is even that close to 40 degrees yet. now, this storm is a huge one. it is going to end up redeveloping off the northeast coast. but the clouds already coming in to virginia. and as the moisture moves in to the colder air, the mountains, it is starting to snow in western virginia and parts of north carolina. so here's what to expect in general for the shore and delaware, a wintry mix at the start, but mostly rain for this storm. the i-95 corridor starts to
11:18 am
snow, then goes to ice, then goes to rain. and actually back to snow at the end. north and west snow get the most snow out of that also perhaps the most ice out of it too. but you're also going to change to rain and then you're also going to change back to snow. a lot going on here. you have to break it down even more and more and later segments. now, the poconos, it is going to be mostly snow but perhaps a little bit of ice. now, let's go take it hour by hour. 6:00, nothing going on. nothing to worry about. by 9:00 we have rain moving up but, remember it is moisture moving into the cold air. unlike what happened last sunday, it is not likely to start as freezing rain. and then icing everything over. in this case it starts as snow and when it changes over to ice,
11:19 am
you got ice on top of snow instead of the bare ground. so it will be kind of crunchy to walk on as opposed to solid sheet of ice. that's a solid area of snow at midnight from northern delaware to the lehigh valley. getting heavy at times, but warmer air is coming in. there is no doubt about that. it is not going to be a complete snowstorm for the philadelphia area, or points to the south. no way that can happen now. and farther to the north, the poconos, it is just about all snow mostly snow and ice in the lehigh valley. we have to watch that as we go into tomorrow morning. still raining in the tristate area. and look at this area of snow. as the storm itself moves past as we showed you earlier, we have that band of snow coming through. i'm not expecting a whole lot with that. but there is a lot going on as
11:20 am
you can see. for example, philly i-95 corridor, 8:00 to 2:00 a.m. snow. 2:00 a.m. to 5:00 a.m. freezing rain. 5:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. a good bit of the storm, rain some of it heavy, and then that brief period back to know. we'll show you some of the other areas a little bit later. here is the latest computer model is showing not much snow accumulation in philadelphia. perhaps one to two inches expect a lot of mix and a lot of rain. and then three perhaps more to the north and west. so we really are talking about more snow to the north and west and also watching out for this icy mix. so the clouds thicken this afternoon. we have snow and then icy mix tonight. temperature this afternoon in the upper 30s. then tomorrow, we have that first alert day, snow ice and rain as you just saw.
11:21 am
we dry out for most of sunday is dry. but sunday night, here comes the snow. it goes into monday morning. and that could very well mess up the morning rush and school delays or cancellations, we have to look at that. and then bitter cold next week. look at those temperatures only in the 20s during the day and windchills maybe down to zero. happening right now, a live look from cuba where a u.s. official is holding a news conference to discuss this week's historic talks. assistant secretary of state roberta jacobson here talking about her conversations with cuban officials to work toward normalizing relations between the two countries. we will monitor this news conference for you and bring you details later today on nbc 10 news starting at 4:00 p.m. well they're tough nuts to crack, but they may be worth all of that work.
11:22 am
the simple brain boost experts say you can get from eating walnuts. and later, dumpster diving with a purpose. what prompted an off duty police officer to undertake this messy search and rescue operation.
11:23 am
11:24 am
well, we have a first alert for the area for tonight and into tomorrow because of this storm that is moving in our direction. you can see on the radar, a lot
11:25 am
of moisture with it and as it moves into the coal air, some places are getting snow some a mix. snow to ice and eventually rain. back with more timing in just a few minutes. thanks glenn. there is a new treatment option available for people who suffer from painful psoriasis. the fda approved a drug for plaque psoriasis. it is injected under the skin. it works by stopping the inflammation that leads to thick, redskin and scales. psoriasis affects about 7.5 million americans. if you're headed out to get groceries before the snow moves in, you may want to add some walnuts to your cart. researchers found adults who ate the most walnuts performed significantly better on tests that measure memory concentration and processing speed. they believe the antioxidants
11:26 am
vitamins and minerals in this nut help protect brain function. walnuts are also the only nut that contains high levels of an omega three fatty acid which benefits the heart. get ready for the arrival of snow of ice and rain. just in time for our weekend. that large storm system you see on radar to our south is now heading our way. glenn will be back to break down the timing of not just one, but two storm systems that will have an impact on our weekend. plus let's talk. why pope francis wants you to put aside your iphones and twitter feeds.
11:27 am
11:28 am
11:29 am
live look right now at radar showing the nor'easter heading our way. storm is expected to bring snow ice and rain to our area starting tonight.
11:30 am
we have live team coverage of the approaching storm and how crews are getting ready for are it. let's begin with nbc 10 first alert chief meteorologist glenn "hurricane" schwartz. what can we expect? >> in this case a fairly typical storm in that areas north and west are going to see the most snow. but we have seen many of the storms that are mixed, this is going to be one too and with some ice. we have the first alert weather day, that's coming tonight and into saturday. but we have two weekend storms that we have to deal with. snow ice and rain especially for this first one. but quite a few hours where it is going to be dry in between and you'll be able to get stuff done this weekend. now we have lots of moisture down to the south, moving up into the cold air. this time of the year many cases, many years, that would lead to a big snowstorm. but there is no high pressure up to the north to block the cold
11:31 am
air, keep the cold air in. so as this comes up yeah it starts to snow but warm air is going to get in there eventually. not real warm just warm enough to change it to rain. there is the freezing mark in allentown. and in reading, barely above freezing in the philadelphia area. and upper 30s farther to the south. there is the storm. a lot of moisture already with it. but as it moves toward the coast, the warmer air is going to start to come in. here is the snow later this evening. and the circulation around this will bring in the warmer air, change it to rain across a good bit of our area and back to snow as the storm moves off shore. then we wait for the next one for sunday night to monday. by noon we have high clouds just totally cloudy at 5:00. no precipitation for the afternoon rush. and then the snow by 10:00
11:32 am
tonight. so in general, what to expect we have a mix at the start at the shore, delaware, not going to get much snow at all. mostly rain out of this storm. i-95 area looks like it is going to start to snow. not last that long. change to some freezing rain. freezing rain will be on top of the ice and not on top of the bare ground like it was last week. and then north and west snow accumulation, then ice accumulation then to rain then back to snow. that is a lot going on there. and the poconos mostly snow with some ice. we'll talk more about the specific timing of these different areas with the rest of the seven-day in a few minutes. >> thanks glenn. crews are working to make sure the roads are ready for the nor'easter. monique braxton live for us again in montgomery county with an update on storm preparations. monique? >> reporter: penndot trucks like this one here seem gigantic
11:33 am

11:34 am

we have that first alert for tonight and into tomorrow. we issue these things to let you know it is going to be not just another day. it is going to be significant. it is going to affect your travel depending when you go and we're trying to help you steer around any kind of troubles. the first alert may be another one coming up for sunday night and monday. because we have two weekend storms that we're going to be dealing with. but a big break in between so the weekend is not a total washout. we have high colludes across the area now. it is cold but it is not that windy. 34 feels like it is 29 right now. a lot of moisture coming up from the south with this storm. as it moves into the colder air, starting to produce some snow you can see in the mountains of western virginia and north carolina, the darker blue
11:50 am
indicating heavy snow. right now, temperatures are only around the freezing mark north and west just barely above it. elsewhere, in the 20s this morning, roads are cold. and when it starts to snow it will be sticking on untreated surfaces tonight. speaking of tonight, by 6:00 nothing is falling. anywhere. so okay for the afternoon rush okay for early dinner. later on tonight, here it comes, and as it moves into the cold air, all of a sudden you got snow. you don't have ice immediately like you did last sunday which caused all of those problems. the glaze on the entire road. now you have ice falling on top of this snow making it kind of crunchy. there it is 11:00, it is snowing over a good bit of the area. even in northern delaware even in much of south jersey. it is not going to last. warmer air coming up first, up
11:51 am
here. high up in the atmosphere. that melts the snowflakes and then cold at the ground and you end up with freezing rain. eventually the ground is going to warm up enough so it is just rain. of course going to warm up first, delaware and south jersey. look at that warm air coming up even to the lehigh valley berks county. so there may be a changeover not just as ice, but to rain even in those areas. the poconos, of course having the best chance to stay in all snow. as the storm moves off shore, the colder air comes back in. and it changes over to a period of snow perhaps a couple of hours worth. and it may not -- that may not stick. it is going to be falling on wetter roads by then. and for the philly i-95 corridor it starts tonight, as snow changes to freezing rain. mainly in the middle of the night. and by the time you get up tomorrow morning and in many cases it will be raining, temperature will be above
11:52 am
freezing. go about your business need to prepare for the rain. then the snow coming later on that shouldn't be too inconvenient. now, north and west that's where we got some problems. rough driving tonight as it starts to snow. the icy mix perhaps even when you get up in the morning, that caused some rough driving. 9:00 a.m. to noon, mainly rain. you got improving conditions and then snow coming back. south and east starts as snow in parts of the area. and icy mix, then to rain that is later this evening. but overnight tonight, into tomorrow afternoon, it is just wet. might have some icy spots tomorrow night. we're talking about an inch or so in northern delaware couple inches in the philadelphia area maybe up to 4 or 5 north and west. but more concerned about the ice than about the snow. the clouds thicken.
11:53 am
we have snow and that icy mix tonight. temperatures in the upper 30s. seven-day forecast there is the snow, ice and rain tomorrow and first alert day. we have the next storm sunday night and into monday morning. monday morning rush problems. more on that of course coming up later. and then it is just bitter cold for the rest of next week. and we'll be right back. as a small business owner you wouldn't deliver just half of what you have to offer to your customers. so why are you settling for half-fast internet? only verizon fios comes with speedmatch-- upload speeds as fast as your download speeds so files go out in a snap. call today to get $200 back when you switch to fios internet and phone for just $99.99 a month with a 2-year agreement and get $200 back. just call 1.888.774.4418 today.
