4:49 pm
coasticoast i if the wind is strong enough. that's the system that we're talking about in first alert. not much, it's a relatively wake system going across. as we go into sunday, we start off pretty cold, we stay cold, and as soon as any precipitation comes in, that temperature can get knocked down. so by sunday afternoon, we're talking about 30, 31-degree temperatures and any snow of any substance can stick on untreated surfaces and especially up toward the poconos, some computer models have that snow all the way down to the philadelphia area, and again, temperatures are marginal there. they also go up as we head toward the monday morning rush. so that's going to help us out here. eastern some of these places in the first alert area, could see temperatures go up above the freezing mark by monday morning, so we're talking about one to three inches for that area. not a whole lot of rain or snow. but it could be the first in
4:50 pm
some areas. so there's sunday. with the mixture, jersey shore, delaware, not getting any precipitation and everybody's dry on saturday. so if you want a perfectly safe day to go out, that's the day. sunday, again, in the afternoon, we have that possibility. monday the temperature jumps up as everything changes to rain and then look what was. we have some snow showers possible wednesday, look how bitter cold thursday is. and then we do have a chance of more significant snow coming in by the following weekend. so we're going to be dealing with some of these threats, winter type threats as we get these arctic air masses coming in once in a while. and so it's cold enough. >> it's going to be really cold sunday for people attending the eagles game. hopefully their tickets are on the side that has the sun, which does make a difference. >> and it's not going to be as
