6:16 pm
tarsdale. 33 in summerton and those temperatures, those neighborhood temperatures are really going to help us out on sunday and into monday as you see neighborhood by neighborhood changes. 21 degrees the way it feels in coatesville, 24 in wilmington and winds up to 25 miles an hour sustained in philadelphia, and wilmington. it will be dying down a little bit. you see some of these places showing signs of diminishing winds, but it's not going to totally die down. we have a first alert out for sunday, sunday night, and possibly early monday. the lehigh valley, berks county and the pa suburbs, montgomery, bucks and the northern parts of those counties.
6:17 pm
sunday night into monday morning. some accumulating snow, changing to a wintry mix. there could be some freezing rain for a period of time in some of these northern suburbs. you see some snow flurries coming through parts of the philadelphia area this afternoon. you can trace it all the way back to the great lakes, the cold air coming over those warm lakes, that's causing that. our threat on sunday is from this. not very impressive. but there's actually a little more moisture now than there was six hours ago. so it is building. the hour by hour, we're fine tomorrow, for any kind of outdoor activity, although it's cold, you just got to bundle up for that. sunday morning is fine again, on the site. in the afternoon we're seeing that disturbance come in from the west, the best chance of snow is lehigh valley, poconos, and any kind of significant snow is going to knock the temperature down, slippery spots on untreated surfaces.
6:18 pm
that's even into the evening as the temperature goes below freezing. warmer air is going to be coming in overnight. so by the monday morning rush hour, we have a good chance of it being warm enough so that it's just wet. and potentially even up toward lehigh valley. so it's mostly later sunday afternoon and sunday night we're anticipating the problems. one to three inches of snow possible. we're not talking about a lot of snow, but the first accumulating snow in areas sometimes is a big deal. you can see cloudy skies for all afternoon for the eagles game, just a chance of a few flakes toward the end of the game or on your home, especially if you're headed to the north. that's where the best chance of that snow is. no snow anywhere on saturday, just cold. more like a january die. so sunday, we have a chance of a little bit of snow in the philadelphia area, by late in the day or the evening, but it
6:19 pm
looks like it will be changing to rain. lehigh valley, best chance of it staying snow or changing over to some freezing rain in the evening. weather is going to vary quite a bit from neighborhood to neighborhood. by monday, the temperature goes shooting up. so any mixed precipitation changes over to rain. then we're not too cold on monday. or tuesday. and then wednesday, some snow showers possible and the next arctic shot hits and colder than this one, windier than this one, probably. and then we do have a chance of some wintry type weather coming next weekend as well. but this kind of cold pattern, those kinds of threats are going to coming at least several days. i'm danny pommells, the flyers captain in flames by the orange and black are the hottest team on ice. that's next.

6:25 pm
hits. >> they won seven strait, they host the stars on saturday afternoon. perhaps the game of the year, a 6-5 win over the edmontoners, the flyers were down two different times. right now they are rolling. >> it's clicking right now. i think as a team, we're playing some good hockey, everybody's stepping up every game and we're not thinking out there. we know what we have to do. we know we have some holes in our game and the coaching staff and all the players dialed down and made sure that we put those mistakes out of our game and right now we're playing some good hockey and we're kind of on a high right, we need to keep that momentum going and have fun. >> that's a look at your sports, i'm danny pommells csn, we'll be right back.
