this afternoon. the time of high tide along the jersey and delaware coast is between 7:30 and 8:30. wave heights could be between 8 and 14 feet. lets get you updated with meteorologist bill henley and his first alert forecast. >> there's a lot going on from the coast inland. we're tracking snow and rain in delaware and south jersey. periods of snow during the day. it's not going to be an all day snowfall. slipping and sliding this morning because of icy spots. there were showers overnight and temperatures have dropped at or below freezing for much of the area. treat it as if it is ice this morning. along the coast, flooding, not just at the jersey shore and delaware and beaches but also for the delaware river. jessica boyington was tracking flooding earlier today. that's a possibility again this afternoon. we have snow. it's a snow/rain mix in delaware, central and southern delaware and into cape may. the light snow is moving into where the cameras are in newark this morning.
6:33 am
we saw a few snowflakes to begin with and steady, light snows that extends into kent county. it's coming down heavier. this is a rain/snow mix where the rain comes together with the snow. that's happening in cape may county. it's light precipitation. the main threat at the shore is going to be flooding. right at freezing for philadelphia, wilmington and northeast philadelphia but during the day, the temperatureç will be climbing. it's really going to limit the accumulation during the day. scattered light snow showers at 8:00 and 11:00. look at the temperature difference. 38 degrees. when the steadier snow and rain moves in this afternoon, 38 degrees, most of the area will be above freezing so there's a possibility that grassy surfaces will see more accumulation but much of the rest of the area will be watching it melt as it comes down. i'll go through the forecast neighborhood by neighborhood taking a closer look at delaware and south jersey when i'm back in ten minutes. jessica boyington watching first alert traffic. >> we have an accident scene popping up in mercer county on route 1 southbound before

have to get the snow brush and the windshields. mostly it's on the grassy surfaces or the parking meters, trash cans that we see out here on east main street. right here behind us, a lot of those vehicles, that truck to the right has snow on it. that's really the most that we've seen thus far out here. we have seen the snow pick up quite a little bit in the past hour or so. more flurries, again, no real accumulation on the ground that we've seen just yet. we've been talking about the icy surfaces, because the temperature has dipped below freezing here. a lot of those moist surfaces, west surfaces out there, you can get icing an we have seen some of these vehicles and some of the side streets spinning and sliding out there. you do need to be careful as you head out the door. deldot is trying to remind everyone to be careful as well. they've been putting the brine solution the major roads and highways. they're trying to stay ahead of the game. they tell us they are monitoring this situation right now.
6:36 am
they've got the plows on standby when that snow begins to fall. at this point we're in a waiting game where we're waiting for the snow so begin accumulating as bill's been talking about all morning, that changeover has been happening, mostly southç us, moving its way up to this area in new castle county. for the moment, just be careful. take extra time as you walk out the door this morning, get the snow brush ready and prepare for a few inches of snow out here in delaware. live in newark, matt delucia, nbc 10 news. >> let's get a close-up look at the roads this morning. first alert meteorologist bill henley tells us icy spots could be a real issue. >> katy zachry is driving in stormforce 10. katy? >> hi, tracy and vai. we're in coopersburg, up in the lehigh valley. we're going south on 309. it's really helpful when there are streetlights around and they glisten off of moisture on the roads.
