will still be that wind we had yesterday. not as strong as yesterday. just enough to blow clouds through the area. see the scattered showers north and west. those are the clouds that will be moving in. we'll get some clouds today. the best chance of showers will come in on thursday from this this morning moving from minnesota into iowa. there will be cold air in the area by the time it gets here. i wouldn't be surprised to see snowflakes in parts of area come early thursday morning. over the next 24 hours we'll see that rain move into the chicago area. this time tomorrow morning it's pushing into wisconsin and illinois. and then it heads towards pennsylvania, new jersey and delaware. by tomorrow evening, look at the light snow that's developing in central pennsylvania. and as it moves into that chillier air in the pocono mountains, we could see light snow falling first thing in the morning on thursday while it's just the north of allentown.
minimal, if any, accumulation as the temperatures will be running -- ground temperatures on warm side. rain moves in as the morning progresses. a good chance we'll see rain during the day on thursday and then a break at the very end of the week. some change in conditions. today you'll feel it. 56 degrees this afternoon. less wind tonight. dry air in place. with clear skies, it gets cold. widespread frost tomorrow morning. 37 in the morning, then 52 in the afternoon. a warmup, even though we'll get warm on thursday, mainly just rain for our area. then 58 degrees with clearing skies for friday. saturday and sunday we will be in the 60s but sunday, we could see some showers, especially first thing in the morning before we clear out on monday. then next week, a one-day warmup, up to 71 on wednesday. all right, not sure i'm ready to hear about snow just yet. we do want to get you ready before you leave the door this morning. we've been watching a serious accident on the northeast extension. >> nbc 10 first alert traffic reporter jessica boyington is
watching it. several tractor-trailers involved and a car. jess? >> right. four tractor-trailers involved, another vehicle as well, injuries reported. one person that we know of at least was taken to the hospital. it's closing down the northbound lanes of the p.a. turnpike's northeast extension right now. all that traffic right there is being diverted off right around lansdale. it's closed between lansdale and quakertown. again, we're also seeing some gaper delay move on the southbound side. what you'll need to do is take an alternate. you'll be stuck behind this for quite some time, especially considering all traffic is being diverted off in the same spot right now. your best bet is to take route 309. i just checked in with some of my cameras there. we're not seeing delays there yet. i expect this to tie up part of your morning commute for quite some time, especially now that there's a fuel spill under way as well as the rest of those vehicles being involved in the scene as well. the bridge headed southbound just before the schuylkill
expressway an city avenue, watch for delays there. here's 95, big drive times, around girard avenue is the camera shot. 35-minute drive times and average speeds into the 20s, southbound from woodhaven road to the vine street expressway. pamela? >> jessica, thanks. a ship that served in world war ii and later immortalized on film will soon be part of the atlantic ocean. the coast guard plans to sink the vessel "tamaroa" on sunday. the ship will help grow a reef near cape may point and draw large game fish. the new reef is expected to boost recreational fishing. sunday marks the 25th anniversary of the storm in which "tamaroa" helped rescue the crews of a commercial fishing boat and downed national guard helicopter off massachusetts. the rescue is portrayed in the book and the film "the perfect storm." seven minutes before 7:00. next, we'll run down this morning's headlines and the stories we'll be following for you throughout the day. we're getting ready for another week of high school
football. here are your choices for game of the week. st. joseph's, versus st. augustine, haverford versus springfield and cinnaminson versus west deptford. you can call or text your vote or go to nbc10.com or on the app. i served under president bush and obama. i fought the taliban. i was asked to
form a global coalition to counter isil. when someone makes the comment that they know more about the islamic state or isil than do the generals, it implies a complete ignorance of the reality. but i believe secretary clinton really understands the threat that the islamic state poses to the united states and to the american people. and i believe she understands how to wield american power to ultimately defeat this threat and to keep us safe. i'm hillary clinton and i approve this message.
good morning, everyone. jessica boyington with one last check on the roads. we have skyforce 10 over top of our breaking news here on the northeast extension of the p.a. turnpike, the northbound side. dealing with four tractor-trailers involved in an accident. another vehicle as well. there are injuries on the scene, a fuel spill as well. that's on northbound side. all traffic being diverted off
around lansdale where they're originally shutting it down towards quakertown. your best bet for an alternate is take route 309. that's okay right now. watch for southbound delay as well because of traffic slowing up to look at the scene. again, this will be there for quite some time. watch the northeast extension northbound. you want to take 309 as your alternate. pamela? 6:58. here are some of the stories we'll be following today. decision 2016 two weeks away. both major presidential nominees, hillary clinton and donald trump will be campaigning in florida today. most major national polls show clinton leading trump. at the bridgegate trial in north jersey, the prosecution will cross-examine bridget kelly after she testified in her own defense. kelly and another former staffer of governor chris christie are accused of plotting to close lanes at the george washington bridge after a local mayor refused to endorse christie for re-election. former penn state assistant coach mike mcquery will be back in court this morning pushing to win his whistle-blower case again the university.
