slippery travel especially as we head into your evening commute. good news is i'm tracking a dry weekend and warmer weekend with temperatures warming almost 20 degrees from this time today versus what will be tomorrow. a live look outside now, can barely make out the comcast center with all the fog and all the snow coming down. it is coming down at a moderate rate and that's why we're not really seeing a whole lot with our cameras. for philadelphia snow coming down, 33 degrees, humidity is up windchill at 25 that's what it feels like when you step outside. wind speeds out of the east at 10 miles per hour. we'll see the snow and more of a wintry mix coming down. rainfall closer to the shore. right now radar shows us where all the snowfall is and you see a look outside of our studio here, snow is coming down at a good clip accumulating on the grassy surfaces but not so much on our roadways which is good for your monday -- or your friday commute heading into lunch time hour. your radar shot shows that we're starting to see a little more rain mixing in closer to
wilmington near washington and as we head into the rest of today, we'll continue to see warmer air mixing in. so you'll notice more rain heading to the north as we push into the rest of the afternoon. but cape may courthouse, cape may, all seeing rainfall now about an hour ago we were seeing more snowfall. so if you live closer to the lehigh valley poconos, all snow coming down and you live closer to philadelphia, we're going to see more of a transition period as we head into the rest of the afternoon. we'll see rain mixing in with the snow. if you're closer to the shore, you're going to see more rainfall throughout today. between 3:00 and 6:00, more of a transition. you'll notice mainly rainfall for atlantic city and still all snowfall for the poconos, lehigh valley and most of our suburb locations. the entire system will start to transition out of here closer to 9:00 p.m. and then we'll be dealing with the possibility of freezing rain. be very careful driving at least through 10:00 p.m. tonight and then we'll start to see our concern going down. but our visibility shows that
heavy snow is coming down to mount pocono. visibility decreases to a quarter of a mile. same thing in allentown. half a mile in reading. down to one mile in wilmington. one mile in philadelphia. and down to about four miles in millville. what to expect as we head to the rest of today. all snow again if you live in the northern parts of montgomery bucks county lehigh and the poconos. we'll see our higher snowfall accumulations in those areas, 3 to 6 inches of snow expected. closer to norristown, philadelphia, trenton, this is more snow and then rain mixing in. so we're going to see our snowfall amounts going down a bit from the poconos. we expect to see 1 to 4 inches. parts of camden county picking up 2 1/2 inches of snowfall. we could see more than that 4 inch mark. mainly rain for cape may stretching up to atlantic city. less than one inch of snow expected for us. and it is still going to be a first alert weather day, at least until 8:00 p.m. for the slushy snow, leading to a slick, evening rush and then freezing
rain is expected tonight as our temperatures get closer to freezing. we're mainly close to freezing right now. 23 degrees for the poconos, le. as we progress, most of our locations, especially for philadelphia at 32 degrees. and that's just as that system is moving out. so the possibility of whatever leftover moisture we have freezing on the roads, be very careful. as far as today concerned, a range between 33 and 38 degrees. wet snow and rain. seven-day forecast it gets better as we head to the weekend. 53 degrees to kick off your weekend. by sunday 46. celebrating the miracle of life. a life that was almost lost. >> for an hour and 41 minutes. >> the amazing story of how this pennsylvania toddler came back to life is still ahead.

in. closer to the shore, you'll see rainfall. as the system starts to taper off, we could see more leftover moisture, rain coming down and freezing rain with our temperatures so low. what to expect, all snowfall closer to the suburbs, lehigh valley and poconos, 3 to 6 inches, all snow coming down. snow to rain for philadelphia norristown trenton, millville. snow totals closer to 1 to 4 inches. and then closer to the shore we're already seeing rainfall. less than 1 inch of snow expected for us. i'm tracking exactly when the system moves out. i'll let you know the details in the full forecast. >> thank you, brittney. ardmore, montgomery county where jesse gary is monitoring the end of winter snow. looks like it is just as steady as it was half an hour ago when we last checked in. >> that's true. the wind is kicking up a bit. that makes it feel colder. i said the snow is still coming down. you see it is slushy here in the streets. this is the corner holland avenue, near lancaster. slushy here. but you have to pay attention to
walkways and stairs like this we have here. this is where you have the biggest amount of accumulation and the biggest and best chance for slipping and falling because that's very slick. look at our video, short time ago, we caught some plows out and about on the mainline in montgomery county they're salting -- or pushing what is sticking to the street and salting what is left behind. the calendar may say it is time for the season to change but winter is not letting go. one more punch our way today. we talked to one university city woman who says this is a nice way, she did say this a nice way to say good-bye to winter. >> i'm glad that it is doing one more round. i don't know. it looks pretty and it is not sticking and it just looks nice. i'm okay with it. >> really? >> as long as it doesn't stick, i'm not sick of it. >> i bet that pooch is sick of it. he's wearing a parka on the first day of spring. nobody is going to be laughing tonight, though because i'll

they're holding themselves to the same ideals they're seeing replicated over and over in their favorite tv shows and social media. we see girls trying to replicate the same ideals and holding themselves to the standards of beauty we see in popular media. >> how does it move into the destructive area? cutting? what are the signs? the kind of things that -- where it manifest itself? >> disordered eating is at an all time high. cutting and all forms of self-harm, especially for young women, at an all time high. depression anxiety, body shame, are all completely concurrent with this. this generation we live in where media is all consuming. it is around us every minute of the day, for so many of us. and so at beauty redefined, through online activism and speaking engagements and soon the world will be in australia and the fall we talk to people about how to recognize and reject harmful media ideals to get to a better happier, healthier, more empowering place. >> we saw a story we read before you guys came on about what
france is doing about it. in general, do you see the media now, even though you know they assisted in this situation, you both know but are they helping now. are they beginning to see the light? >> we see a little bit of both. as things are getting worse and beauty ideals changed into something so unobtainable we see a backlash. we see people pushing back against the ideals. there is a groundswell of change that is happening. with he see that some media are taking a more ethical stance and trying to represent women more representative of what women really look like in real life. we're seeing more diversity being represented. >> that seems to be much more popular these days seeing real women. >> we don't love that phrase, real women. >> why? >> all women are real. no matter if you fit the ideals the beauty ideals or if you don't. what we like to point out is that we're more than bodies. we have to fix body image not by telling women they're beautiful and they need to realize it but by convincing them they are more
than beautiful. and when we get to a place where we can convince girls and women they are more than an ornament for the world to look at that their bodies are instruments that they have things to do with their lives, we get to some place so much better. >> you guys are terrific. doctors, lexi and lindsey, i've forgotten which one is which. for more information on beauty redefined, go to our website, nbc10.com, with the nbc 10 mobile app and link there provided for those who want to find out a little bit more. thank you very much, ladies. appreciate you coming in today. now, your nbc 10 first alert weather with meteorologist brittney shipp. >> good morning. tracking snow and the final hours of winter. spring officially starts into the evening. we have a mix of snow and rain. for travels expected all day, but especially over your evening commute, and even as we start to see the system moving out, we're dealing with the possibility of freezing rain. be very careful, at least
through 9:00 p.m. dry weekend on tap for us which is nice. we'll see our temperatures recovering. i'll go over that in seven-day forecast. look outside now, can barely make out the comcast center you see how foggy it is and we're seeing snow coming down at a good clip there in center city and outside of the city right now. snow coming down 33 degrees with the windchill at 24. wind speeds sustained out of the east at 11 miles per hour. you see through our radar here we're seeing moderate snowfall coming down near allentown where we start to see the darker blues there, stretching into philadelphia. just to the south of burlington county, all dealing with a moderate snowfall. we're starting to see a little bit of rain mix in with the snow closer to the shore and there is a live look outside of our studio. you can see the snow is mainly accumulating on our grassy surfaces, not so much on the roads. we still expect slick conditions so be very careful throughout the day. radar shot showing we're seeing a little bit more of that rain pushing closer to philadelphia, but mainly confined to cape may
county and to the south of atlantic city. where we're starting to see again, that rain transition up towards the north. heading into the next few hours here especially between 3:00 p.m. and 6:00 p.m. that's when we'll see most of the transition between the snow and the rain. but that's only for philadelphia and those points south. if you live closer to our suburb locations, doylestown pottstown, lehigh valley allentown, poconos, we're going to see snowfall with this system as we head into the next couple of hours. you'll notice more of that transition between 3:00 to 6:00 for philadelphia stretching out to mount holly and atlantic city cape may, mainly expected to see rainfall. we already saw a little bit of snow come down with this system. heavy snow for the poconos, we're seeing visibility down to about half a mile a quarter of a mile in allentown, half a mile in pottstown. visibility decreased to four miles in millville, 3/4 in philadelphia and 1/4 in northeast philly. i'm adding up the snowfall totals for you. sicklerville, 2.5 inches of snow
already. west chest, philadelphia one inch. and for the northern parts of delaware half an inch of snow is already accumulated. so here is how it is going to break down. what you can expect closer to allentown and reading, all snow with this system. so that's 3 to 6 inches of snowfall closer to philadelphia. norristown, trenton, snow to rain. i showed you when the rain is going to mix in with the snow between the hours of 3:00 to 6:00. our snowfall totals will be less than the areas seeing all snow 1 to 4 inches of snowfall expected. and then mainly rain for the central and southern parts of delaware, cape may, pushing up to atlantic city. so not as impressive with our snowfall totals less than 1 inch and probably just a coating on the grassy surfaces with most of the temperatures in those areas staying just above freezing. first alert weather day, in effect until 8:00 p.m. for the slushy snow the slick evening commute and freezing rain a possibility as we head into the rest of tonight. the reason why is our temperatures, we're keeping a close eye on the temperatures
which are pretty close to freezing now. as we head into the rest of the evening, even when the system starts to depart closer to 8:00, 9:00 you'll notice we're below freezing in trenton, below freezing for philadelphia and the concern will then be freezing rain whatever leftover moisture we have freezing on our surfaces and parking lots. just be very careful. for today, temperatures range between 33 and 38 degrees. wet snow and rain mixing in. rain confined to the shore. seven-day forecast is warmer temperatures and dry weekend which will be a nice way to officially welcome in spring heading into monday. back down to the 40s and warmer temperatures by next wednesday. a personal note this morning, a former member of our team deryl borden has passed away. he was with nbc for more than ten years. he produced this very show a few years ago. few people could make you laugh like deryl did. nobody did a better tom brokaw imitation than deryl.
