4:16 pm
necessarily all of it in all spots. so we've got slick spots, untreated surfaces as it's getting dark. so we're losing the impact of the sun's rays right through the clouds. this is i-95, things looking okay now but there's a band of snow headed into philadelphia, curious to see what happens to the camera. 36 degrees, snowing at the airport now. east-northeast at 7 miles an hour. and the temperatures, above freezing in philadelphia, it's been that way all day. it's going to probably stay that way about all night. and to the south and east, above freezing. but it's near that, those are the areas especially the untreated surfaces will be seeing some of those slick spots. the darker blues indicating a little bit heavier snow. this is not nearly as dark a blue as what we saw during the blizzard. but we've got one band coming
4:17 pm
through chester county, delaware county and that rain snow line that was near i-95 is already moved down to the south as the cooler air is coming down. doesn't take much. so it's snowing all across wilmington and pilesgrove and woolwich township in new jersey. you're getting this band coming right up. right up the delaware river. right up i-95 across delaware county into philadelphia. right into camden. right into gloucester county. but to the south this is all rain, and no weather advisories for snow because it's too warm and it's raining. and this disorganized mess continues to be a disorganized mess. let's show you where the snow is the heaviest. the visibilities will tell you that. it's actually dropped all across eastern pennsylvania. it's not coming down hard but it's coming down. pottstown 3/4 mile visibility.
4:18 pm
that's accumulating snow. reading is fairly heavy and coatesville is very heavy snow. you can get an inch or more an hour at that kind of rate. wilmington itself a half mile is certainly accumulating snow. but in philadelphia, so far not quite there. wait until the band of snow gets there. and no snow in much of south jersey including the areas where it is raining. as we go through the next several hours, the temperature is going to be very critical. but it's also not going to be dropping a lot. and as it drops the snow is kind of moving out. so, again i'm not expecting any widespread problems for tomorrow morning. how much snow? we're still in that target area to the north and west, but less than an inch farther to the south. 1 to 3 inches around the philadelphia area, bucks, montgomery county may get a quick inch this evening. but chester county, parts of
4:19 pm
berks county, 3 to 5 inches. then watch what happens here. the cold air comes in later in the week. and then it gets even colder. this is arctic air. it's not just arctic air. we trace that air back across the north pole all the way to siberia. call it the siberian express and it's hitting this weekend. periods of snow, melting tonight, 31 degrees in philadelphia, 28 north and west. during the day tomorrow, generally dry, clouds and sun. temperatures getting up close to 40 but see how windy it is. gusts of 30 miles per hour. and then it gets colder every day. until saturday, the high of only 16 and a low of 8. with wind chills below zero for valentine's day. especially in the morning. before we warm up for the next storm. we have breaking news out in delaware. we learned delaware has its

it's the first alert weather day that means we're tracking snow across many parts of our area. nbc 10 in delaware county this morning where the snow is coming down making for wet roads. this is video from coatesville in chester county in the past hour. you can see how hard the snow is coming down there. and we're also keeping an eye on the snow's impact on the evening commute. a live look at i-95 in wilmington from our camera at the blue rock stadium. the snow is really coming down. that snow will continue to fall into the evening. >> first alert chief meteorologist glenn "hurricane" schwartz is tracking what is calling and what's to come. >> you notice you can't really see very well in that picture, go back to it in wilmington. and the heavier snow reduces the visibility. that's how we can tell how heavy the snow is by how far you can see and how that changes over
4:30 pm
time. so periods of snow reducing that visibility, most of it is melting, certainly doing that in wilmington now. traffic is moving fine but some slick untreated surfaces, also in parts of the western suburbs you saw that video from coatesville, certainly the snow sticking to driveways and some of the side streets. this is a fairly large area of snow right now. and that darker blue indicating a little bit heavier, not super heavy but certainly heavier than we've seen so far with this system. now this is coming through delaware county, right through chester itself, coming up i-95, getting right into south philly right now. through the blue route, and coming up toward king of prussia, and that's significant snow. it is not trivial here. lower merion about to get into a heavier band. in the meantime it's turned all to snow in northern delaware where there was a mixture
4:31 pm

starting to fall again in philadelphia. a look at i-95 in south philly where the snow started to pick up a few minutes ago. as the snow gets heavier the visibility gets worse. take it easy driving home. a live shot in center city, again you can't see very far because of the snowflakes. that's not fog, that is snow. reducing visibility. that's one of the reasons for the first alefrrt. most of it melting but you got to watch for the slick spots on untreated surfaces, especially in chester county. getting hit the hardest with this storm, and that's where the temperatures are a little lower too. kennett square at 31, chester springs 32. wilmington 33, as is trenton. it's above freezing in philadelphia. that way all day. probably stay that way all night. lancaster down to 30, pottstown 31, coatesville 32, reading 32. right on the border.
4:49 pm

4:50 pm
pretty low visibility. that's where the snow is coming down the hardest and wilmington is coming down really hard. a quarter mile visibility. reduced a little in philadelphia, that band has come over and it will continue to be reduced over the next hour. where it's raining, that's not an issue. watch the temperatures. they don't really change very much as we go through the night as the snow area diminishes. so we're not going to be in that bad a shape for tomorrow morning's rush. so less than an inch to the shore, and southern delaware where we're getting rain now. 1 to 3 inches in and around the philadelphia area and 3 to 5 inches, chester county for the most part southern berks county and even a little portion of new castle county getting the 3 to 5. periods of snow mainly melting, 31 in philadelphia, 28 north and west. again, chester county probably the driving conditions the worst. clouds and sun tomorrow, windy, gusts of 30 miles an hour. near 40 and then colder until
