not everybody has temperatures below freezing. but in philadelphia, view from center city, looking past the art museum, it is in the 20s to start with. refreezing has occurred from trenton through northeast philadelphia into wilmington. but it's above freezing in dover and millville and look at that, 40 degrees right now in atlantic city. we do have wet weather we're watching. these showers, an icy mix in central pennsylvania, those will be arriving this afternoon. by then, temperatures will be warmer. a pretty quick warmup. clear to start with by 7:00. by 10:00, scattered clouds. look at the temperatures. into the low 40s at 1:00 this afternoon. that's when skies turn cloudy. we'll be watching out for showers later on today. we'll go through the forecast neighborhood by neighborhood. jessica boyington with your first alert traffic. >> that's right, bill. we're on the schuylkill expressway right now, right around montgomery drive where things are looking okay. over into the shoulders, it's a little bit of a shiny area which
could potentially be slippery. it's the off ramps and secondary roads you want to watch out for. eastbound from the blue route to the vine street expressway, still a 12-minute trip. no real problems there. you can see route 202 having no problem either. we're in the green. 11 minutes northbound from route 30 to the schuylkill expressway or southbound, pretty much doing the same. i checked in with the area bridges, no scheduled openings at least for right now for the burlington bristol or the tacony palmyra. no problems on the ben or walt either. here's some quick and important blizzard information as you join us this morning. there will be trash and recycling collection today in philadelphia. if you park at meters or kiosks in the city, that is still free. we checked the philadelphia international airport within the last half hour and found all 1 o schedule this morning. some arriving flights are either canceled or delayed. septa buses, entrances and trolleys are running today. there's no regional rail service
between malvern and thorndale due to switch problems. there's no rail service from bryn mawr to norristown. 5:03. right now, icy roads will be the biggest problem facing commuters in our area. nbc 10's matt delucia is live in stormforce 10 in conshohocken keeping an eye on the dangerous spots. tell us what it's like out there. >> tracy, most of the major roads are not too bad except for the overpasses where you can get icy spots. let's show you where we are right now. we're in conshohocken. we're trying to go through some of the side streets to give you a better look and where some of the icy conditions are. this is where you'll find them, the snow banks you see out here, people shoveling their cars out, driveways out. this is where we got a little bit of that melting yesterday and some of that has washed into the streets a refroze overnight. this is really the issue we've seen on. this particular road we've not really seen too much in the way of icy conditions. just a little bit off to the side and mostly by the corners.
for the most part, this is really not that bad. of course, there are many other areas of the delaware valley that are seeing much worse conditions. we're about to turn on to caldwell lane, sand wood and caldwell. mostly dry, very treated surface here. again, some spots you really have to watch out for that black ice, especially on the sidewalks and driveways as you head out the door this morning. be careful, because the temperatures are low enough for that snow that melted yesterday, the little bit has refrozen. we'll keep going, try to find some harder hit areas we see more of that black ice. for now, live in conshohocken, stormforce 10, matt delucia, nbc 10 news. all right, matt, thanks for keeping an out for for us. overnight we did find lots of snow covered streets. check out this one. this is on west abbottsford avenue. check out the conditions in philadelphia's kensington neighborhood. the streets are still covered in
snow. you can see the cars are stuck, can't go anywhere. >> it will be another busy day as crews and neighbors work hard to clear the snow. people living on side streets will be the last to be plowed in the city of philadelphia. then there are people like miguel perez who spent half the day lending a hand. >> i helped neighbors clean the sidewalk and throw salt over here. >> it takes time to clear 22 inches of snow. i feel like the city is doing what they can do. >> right now, the city is estimating that all the streets will be cleared by tomorrow night. happening today, it is going to be a full day of touring the jersey shore for u.s. senator corey booker. this morning, he'll get a firsthand look at damage done by the coastal flooding. he'll begin in west wildwood at 11:00 and head to seaç isle ci and atlantic city. nbc 10 was at the jersey shore yesterday where we found several damaged beach homes in long beach township, ocean county, the sea is lapping close to
those houses. the nor'easter washed away protective dunes and property in an area devastated by hurricane sandy in 2012. the township is now trucking in sand to rebuild the barriers. >> we'll start with 600 truck loads we can probably use 600 truck loads every three days. >> we're one storm away from having another major disaster. >> now, in north wildwood, crews are trying to fix a breach in the dune system. take a look at this drone video. it gives you a bird's-eye view of the damaged area before and then after the storm. let's go to allentown. allentown wants cars off the streets so crews can plow the snows but where do you park? officials are making parking available at several schools and the mayor is asking businesses to allow people to park there temporarily.
