11:13 am
transcribe words on it that are the complete opposite of what i said, it's incredibly disturbing. i mean, you guys have to be saying this now, it's every single day something comes out of the cruz campaign that's unsubstantive and cruel. >> senator rubio is working to get out the vote today in nevada where he lived for part of his childho childhood, as we take a live look right now where the crowd was just chanting marco, marco. more members of the gop establishment are moving to support rubio as many analysts view him as their best chance to stop the outsider trump from winning the nomination. yesterday rubio picked up support from some republican leaders such as bob dole and orrin hatch. new this morning philadelphia major jim kenny is endorsing democrat hillary clinton for president. he released a statement saying he trusts clinton with the
11:14 am
future. hillary clinton maintains her national overall lead to bernie sanders. the same poll also shows mrs. clinton continues to lead nationally. political observers say that could just be part of a wider problem for sanders. he's also facing a deficit. yesterday in boston sanders was still optimistic and even paid a compliment to mrs. clinton. >> i am delighted that secretary clinton month after month after month seems to be adopting more and more of the positions that we have advocated. that's good. >> kind of a backhanded compliment there. hillary clinton's latest stump speech appear to prove that point. she's now speaking out about campaign finance reform, which is a sanders trademark.

11:16 am
it was 53 degrees yesterday. now at the shore this cape may from the marquee delafayette. it's raining. it's a little on the windy side but nothing compared to tomorrow. tomorrow the wind is really going to be howling off the ocean. and could be some coastal flooding. so that's something to monitor. right now we have winds of 10 to 15 miles an hour for the most part. generally out of the east. now, these temperatures something we're going to have to watch closely this afternoon. see reading 33 degrees, allentown 34. now, it's snowing in parts of the area. with the daytime hours here, with the stronger sun this later in the wintertime, it takes a lot for snow to stick on roads during the daytime hours. so that temperature would have to come down significantly or the snow come down really hard. but we'll watch these temperatures hour by hour.
11:17 am
coatessville, quakerstown, 37 degrees. while it's 41 in philadelphia. 39 in wilmington. 35 in kennett square. 39 in mount holly. and of course we're well into the 40s toward the shore with the wind coming in off the ocean. there is a winter weather advisory for not only the poconos but also northhampton. i wouldn't be surprised if that's extended into parts of lehigh county and berks county. and you can see the snow just starting to reach the poconos. but there's this little burst here right around allentown. what happens here is as the precipitation gets heavier, it can turn into snow. some of that colder air from aloft comes in and so now this is up the northeast extension between emmaus and allentown. we're seeing snow and darker
11:18 am
blue indicating a little heavier snow. so that's the kind of thing that can happen in other parts of the area. again, generally north of the pennsylvania turnpike during the afternoon. something we're going to have to watch and keep you updated on that. the rain across the rest of the area as you can see moving to the north. this is just one piece of the system that's going to be affecting us. as we go through the afternoon, we'll have that area of snow and some of it could come down as far south as the upper bucks, upper montgomery, even northern chester county could see a little bit of snow here. things taper off as we go through the evening hours. and it's generally quiet tomorrow morning early. but then things start changing. as we go through the night tonight you can see temperatures generally above freezing. and it stays above freezing overnight. warmer air's coming in tomorrow. and here comes more rain. patchy generally light rain in the morning, even into the
11:19 am
afternoon. and then here it comes. this is wednesday evening. maybe from 6:00 on we have potential for some heavy showers, and even some thunderstorms. we get a lot of storms like that coming through, there could be some potentially damaging winds out of that. again, that is tomorrow night. not today. not tonight as far as any potential severe weather. windy and wet today with some snow and a bit of a wintry mix the farther north you are in the area. high temperatures ranging from the upper 30s into the mid-40s. then tomorrow, look at that, up near 60 or maybe even in the 60s. but that's coming tomorrow evening. it's not going to be that warm during the day. but we get some heavy rain coming. and heavy showers. also windy on thursday on the mild side. then it gets colder for friday and into saturday. >> thank you, glenn.

underneath his uniform right now. >> mayor, if you have more on our website at nbc10.com. >> thank you. >> thank you for coming in. >> thank you. now your nbc 10 first alert weather with chief meteorologist glenn "hurricane" schwartz. >> got a wet and nasty day out there, especially after the beautiful weather we had yesterday. it's a rainy kind of cold day. and we are seeing some snowflakes up in the pocono mountains and a couple other spots. snow and mix in some of our northern suburbs and wednesday's going to get kind of wild. it's going to be warm, wet and windy. we have rain and some wind right now. this is a cold wind coming out of the northeast at 12 miles an hour. it's 42 degrees in philadelphia, feeling like 36. and it's not quite that warm elsewhere. and that's part of our problem.
11:50 am
it's 29 in mt. pocono, 33 reading, 33 allentown, 36 in west chester. temperatures just barely above freezing. we have the advantage of the time of year and the sun's rays are a little stronger this time of year. even going through the clouds it helps a little bit. but we have, again, marginal temperatures. macungie is only 32. pretty close. start snowing a little harder and that temperature could come down a little bit more. chalfont 39, doylestown 37. we're looking at bucks county and of course the upper portion of the county will be colder. it's 37 in quakertown and also in perk si. we'll monitor those temperatures hour by hour as we go through the day just to make sure they don't drop too much. feels like 27 in reading and 30s across most of the rest of the area. winter weather advisory for the
11:51 am
poconos. also northampton county for a little bit of snow and maybe a little sleet or freezing rain coming by this evening. lehigh county, berks county kind of on the fence there. and it's possible there could be some nasty conditions there as well. here's berks county. as you can see the upper portion of the county a little bit of sleet and then lehigh valley toward the poconos right now it's just north of allentown where we're seeing some snow up by lehigh and darker blue indicating heavier snow. so, yeah, this is definitely something we're going to have to watch this afternoon because the atmosphere really isn't going to warm up a whole lot during the day today. you can still see more rain coming up from washington, but that's just the first piece. the first storm. there's a second storm that's going to be affecting us tomorrow. and that's going to be more potent, if you can believe that. we've got the snow this afternoon in the poconos. you can see the rain elsewhere.
11:52 am
but some of it could leak down into lehigh valley, maybe even upper bucks county later today. but you see the rain tapers off somewhat, even ends as we go through the nighttime hours. not that it's going to clear out or anything, but it's not going to be raining like this constantly through tomorrow night. but we are going to be getting another round of it. you can see the temperatures overnight tonight if anything they're going up. so we're not expecting a change to snow tonight or anything like that. then tomorrow we have some showers around during the day. still cold, but as we go into the evening hours, that's when some of this heavy rain and maybe even thunderstorms come through. and that could be accompanied with some really gusty winds, maybe even damaging winds. we'll talk more about that this afternoon as the new data comes in. windy and wet this afternoon with some snow and a wintry mix. some of our northern suburbs
11:53 am
with east to northeast wind. this 60 degrees or 60 plus would occur wednesday night. during the day tomorrow it's generally in the 40s. and then a windy day on thursday. the temperatures in the 50s and then we get cold for friday with a high temperature of only 41.
