you need to stay off especially salt ice on the bay. the teen was taken to the hospital but is expected to be sign. the bay doesn't usually freeze over. but this winter has been exceptional. i'll say. commuters in boston are fed up with continued delays in the transit system following record snowfall. it appears there's no end in sight. transit officials warn it won't run for at least a month or longer if there's a significant snowstorm. the governor hopes they get back on track sooner than that. they are working as aggressively as possible to remove the snow from their tracks. meanwhile. they are warning people to stop diving into the snow. stunts like this are foolish and people could kill themselves if they hit the ground under the snow. now your nbc 10 first alert
weather with chief meteorologist glenn "hurricane" schwartz. >> i have never seen that in all of the years of looking at lots and lots of snow. we're tracking snow showers. nothing that big but just enough to create a nuisance. then another round of potential record cold in our area and a weekend storm that looks to bring a different types of precipitation to the area. got a lot of sunshine now and a lot of ice on the delaware river. it's 27 degree feels like 22. where there's hardly any wind right now, and let's compare boston to philadelphia. since january 24th. boston has had over 90 inches of snow. in philadelphia we've had 7 1/2. last winter, philadelphia was snowier than boston. what a change in one year. now, this morning, we saw some places below zero.
allentown and quaker town, 2 below. pottstown, 1. mt. holly. 1 begrow womenington, minus 3, one of the warm spots philadelphia 11 degree. right now, it's 30 in wilmington. the sun is helping us out. the sun's rays are stronger in the second half of february than january. we can melt a little snow even if we don't get to freezing. here's additional snow approaching the west. some snow showers on the heavier side. watch what happens as we go through the rest of the day and into the evening after 7:00, here comes those snow showers. it's scattered around. it's not like saturday where everybody gets it. it's scattered but could get a
burrst. burst and that moves out and cold winds come in. what kind of air is headed this way? well, it feels like it's 14 below in chicago. close to 50 below in central, canada. so, these windchills, this afternoon, in the 20s. go down to the single digits north and west. this evening and below zero across much of the area by tomorrow morning does not really improve during the day. it's going to feel like it's below zero much of the day tomorrow if not the entire day, then, look at that. thursday night. windchills, 10 to 20 below zero and more than 30 below in the poke nose. that's dangerous cold. you have to protect every square inch of your skin. mostly sunny skies today, not
bitter cold but plain cold. high temperatures actually get to the freezing point in a couple spots. but not tonight. tomorrow, highs only in the teens with the wind all day. so, again, it's going to barely feel like zero then the low temperatures friday morning, that's in philadelphia. and we have wind on top of that. we're feeling like 10 to 20 bow low there. saturday morning could set some records in a couple places depending how much snow cover. then the storm saturday looks like snow late in the day. changing to a bit of an icy mix, and then eventually rain. looks like most of that next storm, weekend storm, would be rain as warmer air comes in. can't wait for the warmer air. thanks glen. >> when is the right time to drop your toddler's daytime nap? the results of a new study shows children may want to give

so combination sunshine very little wind making it feel a lot more tolerable, 27 degrees 7 degrees warmer than yesterday. 20s just about everywhere. mt. pocono. up to there 30 in wilmington. we'll not see temperatures near that over the next couple of days. here's the first round of the snow showers coming through western pennsylvania, west virginia. not a solid area like it was on saturday. so we're not going to get that. the wind will not gust quite as strong. we'll get a gusty wind and some places could get a dusting up to an inch as it comes through. this is generally 7:00, 8:00 tonight. then by midnight it's pretty much gone except for perhaps the shore. and then the wind picks up and then it gets colder. and colder and colder.
here we are this afternoon. with the feels-like temperature, not too terrible. but as we go through the night, by 11:00, it's already feeling like single digits. tomorrow morning it's feeling like below zero across much of the area, if not the entire area. even the middle of the afternoon tomorrow feeling like it's 6 below in alantown, 7 below in redding, even 3 below in atlantic city. 7 below in dover. then by midnight look at that. down to minus 20 in allentown and close to minus 20 as you saw in philadelphia even, early friday morning. that's going to be the coldest air of the season so far and some record low temperatures may be broken. now, let's see if we can break this pattern before the month is over. well here's that next round of arctic air, and an awful lot of it.
areas on thursday covering much of the area. friday over the weekend, we start arctic. we warm up a little bit. just enough for the storm to change to rain. and then here comes another round of the arctic air and now we're talking about the end of next week, the end of the month, and you still have arctic air on top of us. so we're not changing this pattern at least through the rest of february overall. mostly sunny today. high temperatures around 30 or into the low 30s. that's the warmest it's going to be until we get to the weekend. starting tonight snow showers come and then it gets windy and bitter cold and potential record cold friday morning. some snow comes in late saturday but it looks like it may quickly change over to an icy mix and then rain as warmer air comes in. but that's only a temporary thing. colder air comes back next week.
