6:01 am
yesterday and the wind is not whipping as much as it was and we don't have snow in the forecast. some positives. >> that's good news because we did see snow showers yesterday, very brief and light. shouldn't be too much of an issue today. let's check in with meteorologist bill henley. good morning, bill. >> good morning, rosemary. katy, it is cold outside this morning. as you mentioned it is clear. we will see sunshine to warm the temperatures up but at this hour, most of the area is seeing them drop. 6:01. 16 degrees in the pocono mountains. look at allentown, just dropped to 20 degrees and 21 now in pottstown. that's down a degree in the last hour. philadelphia international and wilmington have been down to 30 degrees when we went on the air. now it's starting to warm up a little bit. we have a bit of an easterly wind blowing across the delaware towards philadelphia international. that's boosting the temperatures there. you still have to bundle up for most of the area. south jersey, 24 degrees. dover at 28 degrees. we will see lots of sunshine. this is the view from here at

6:03 am
some thunderstorms. but then they move out by late in the afternoon and the evening. might see a few showers during the late afternoon hours. but then on friday, can't completely rule out a chance of a shower for villanova's big parade. through it all, the temperatures will be climbing. we're getting a cold start this morning. we'll see the temperatures climb into the 60s tomorrow with the rain due in during the day tomorrow. so 32 degrees to start with. you can see the flag is at rest this morning with nice and clear skies. you'll definitely need your sunglasses during the day today. and you'll need to deal with sun glare if you're hitting the roads. jessica boyington has your first alert traffic. jessie? >> that's right, bill. we'll deal with glare maybe later on in the morning hours. we also are watching a lot of ongoing kruk as well. right now i'm looking at some of my cameras around the vine street expressway and 24th street. we did have earlier construction that closed the vine street expressway in both directions.
