honor a fallen marine on monday. governor christie has ordered state flags to fly at half staff for captain stanford henry shaw iii. shaw was from somerset county and 31. he was one of the 11 national guardsmen killed in a black hawk helicopter crash last week. the chopper went down in fog off the -- in the waters off of florida's gulf coast during a training mission. there's a heated debate in wilmingtons the school decides to change its long-time mascot. the mascot of the conrad school of sciences has always been the redskins but a group of students and staff is pushing to retire the logo and nickname over concerns they're offensive to native americans. the change moving forward even as some alumni leaders say they've been blindsided by it. >> i don't know where it really stops because that word doesn't mean the same to us. that word means love that word means honor, it means tradition, it means community. >> some alumni are looking for a
6:19 am
middle ground solution retiring the redskins name but keeping the native american headdress logo. supporters of the change hope to have it complete in time for the next academic year. as predicted the snow is starting to move in depending where you are you might see wet roads. >> katy zachry in the first alert traffic center. >> i'm hearing it's on and off ins chester county. this is a looks at the radar over our traffic maps. as we zoom in i'm going to show you a camera from the downington area along route 340 where you can see it's a grainy picture but what i'm hearing from crews who are out in chester county is that light snow had been falling sticking to the roadways but then it stopped. it's a little bit of off and on. the reason you see precipitation in our radar is because it is very well in our area. it's just evaporateing before it gets to the roadways bill will go into that. a live look not live look but live update for those in the bucks county area. there is a route closure route
6:20 am
563 closed between north lane and old bethlehem pike. dispatch called us to alert drivers to that and that should be out there the next hour or so. driving on 95 your drive times between naymens and 476 looking good six minutes in both directions. area bridges clear and no reported delays to mass transit. >> now your nbc 10 first alert weather with meteorologist bill henley. >> it is a first alert weather day for snow and rain and some slippery conditions especially later on this morning, a dry view of 30th street station. it's 35 degrees in philadelphia that number is going to be falling during the day and that's going to allow for more accumulation later this afternoon. 95 in south philadelphia that is dry. it's going to be a mix of snow and rain for much of the area including philadelphia. the temperature is the key, look at washington township wrights town at or below freezing potential for slippery conditions there and especially
6:21 am
north and west where snow accumulation is more likely. coatesville is below freezing. look at redding at 36 degrees. even oxford in southern chester county is a little bit above freezing. just enough to make grassy surfaces more likely to get the accumulation than roadways. upper 30s right now in dover and middletown and that's why i'm expecting to see mainly rain in delaware and south jersey as it stays warmer. go farther north and west that's the colder air, you can see the snow starting in burkes county lancaster into chester county and we watch snow for the last three hours in hagerstown with temperatures just above freezing similar to the conditions that we have set for our area and so this is the view from hagerstown. see the roadways are just fine. there's that grassy accumulation. so, on the grassy surfaces three to six incheses especially north and west but this is where it's going to be colder so we're more likely to see the accumulation also on roadways and sidewalks and driveways. could end up with a slushy 1 to 3 inches for philadelphia.
6:22 am
the 3 number more likely north and west where it's colder. the 1 is more likely in delaware and south jersey. and farther to the south, less than an inch is likely. it's primarily going to be rain. but it is going to be a wintry end to winter appropriately. spring arrives at 6:45 this evening and the first weekend of spring, is looking a whole lot better. bit of fog, maybe a bit icy tomorrow morning but a nice warmup saturday afternoon. chillier sunday and monday and tuesday will be in the 40s but then a nice warmup wednesday and thursday. >> makes it sound nice, doesn't he? a wintry end to winter. 6:22. a family is overcome with joy after a toddler nearly drowned. >> the wonderful part of the story. another part that will make you ask yourself how is that possible? just ahead how long the toddler went without a pulse. >> and get ready for years of delays and detours. next the stretch of 95 getting a major upgrade.

6:38 am
west. that's where you're more likely to see accumulating snow. the rain in southern delaware that will just stay as rain and in between for new castle county in delaware philadelphia trenton, it's going to be a rain/snow mix. snow is falling in the redding area and into lehigh county the first snowflakes in allentown, pocono mountains potentially could see half a foot of snow. future weather showing by 10:00 most of the area is seeing snow but as the day goes on there's warmer air going to be pushing in so it's a rain/snow mix for parts of the area this afternoon and that's going to keep the snow amounts on the lower side. so wet snow and rain. looking for 1 to 3 inches in the philadelphia area more north and west. 30s this afternoon with easterly winds to 12 miles an hour. spring arrives this evening. the first weekend of spring will be drying out after an icy start on saturday morning with some fog, partly sunny, 53 in the afternoon. chillier on sunday. a look at how much snow it to expect in your area along with
