still reports of wintry mix. heavy rainier westchester. also, good news if you are in parts of new jersey or delaware. a lighter rain. still going to citi the wet roadways. cloudy conditions and some foggy areas as well for that morning commute. that's what we have to deal with throughout your morning depending on your neighborhood. different conditions. overall, temperatures were the key factor in whether you saw rain, ice, or snow. temperatures are boosting quickly. we are at 39 in philadelphia. the lehigh valley, bumping up to officially above freezing. some parts of berks county, still below freezing, which is why we are under that concern. coming up, a closer look at the hour by hour for your neighborhoods. we will talk about the warmer temperatures. for now, we'll talk traffic with
jessica boyington. >> starting off on route 202 and cameras along route 29, difficult to see with the reduced visibility. seven minutes northbound from 29 to the schuylkill expressway. we are seeing a little bit of slower speeds moving through with all of that rain on the roads. north hampton township, dealing with an accident, route 332 is closed. this portion between holland avenue and rock way. you can take stump road and go down to 232, that will have you by passing the entire scene right there as your alternate. in washington township, a crash on the atlantic city expressway. no major delays because of it. schuylkill expressway will end here. eastbound and westbound, drive times 14 minutes, average speeds into the mid-50s. back to you. we continue our live team coverage. pamela osborn is live in storm
force 106789 gi. give us a better look at what's happening. >> reporter: we are still in allentown right now. we are on turner street. give me one second and i will flip this camera around so you can take a look at the road right now. i should mention, it is about 30 degrees. we have been bouncing back and forth between freezing and below freezing. the ice or this rain, rather, that is coming down this morning is actually turning into ice, a bit of a slush mix. we shot some video. it gives you a better idea of how conditions are. we are seeing slushy, icy coatings on the roadways. we haven't seen any truck salting in allentown since we have been here. we took the northeast extension out this morning and hopped on 78 east.
we could see a penndot truck. be careful with your driving in this area. we haven't seen anyone doing any salting as of now since we have been here for the past hour. you definitely want to take your time. there is ice on the sidewalks. there is ice on parts of the road and the roads are just wet as well. so definitely keep your eye out for that this morning. allow yourself plenty of extra time to get to where you need to go. we're going to be out here and we're going to continue to take a look at conditions and let you know how things are. again, the rain, as krystal mentioned, beginning to taper off a little bit here but it is not preventing that from freezing or not freezing when it gets to the ground. just be careful. back to you. >> that's good news. we'll take you live out to montgomery county. >> monique braxton is live with more on conditions there. monique, how is it? >> hi, good morning to you, both. since we last talked to you, the rain has picked up again. it appears to be raining sideways as a matter of fact.
caution seems to be the word of the day. as you leave out of your home, you may see some light fog. that's what we have been seeing most of the morning. that's going to be mixed with the leaves coating your street or roadway. a little bit of oil or gas maybe on those as well. you do need to exercise caution. i also want you to know that traffic is picking up here at the toll plaza as the morning commute kicks in to high gear. now, something else you may need to know. that is, the code blue advisory expires for the city at the top of the hour at 6:00. but it remains in effect in montgomery county until about 9:00. all of that being good news. that means a warmer day is ahead and the rain is moving out of here. live for now at the toll plaza, overlooking the traffic and the conditions, monique, braxton, nbc 10 news. >> with this morning's conditions, we could see school delays in parts of our region. i just checked the website. we have a few.
make sure you have our free nbc 10 app to find up to the minute school closings and delays. it's 5:38. the season is just about over for the eagles after the birds dropped their fourth straight game losing to the redskins at home. >> jillian mele joins us live. desperate times call for desperate measures. at one point, our good friend, john, couldn't snap the football and then it went to brent sellic. he snapped one and went over the guy's head. they had to go to the third long snapper which most teams don't have a third string long snapper. it was like they were trying people out on the sidelines. >> right. that was one of the more bizarre situations if you will on the broadcast yesterday. they were saying the eagles were holding a tryout for long snapper on the sideline, which we learned wasn't the case. john dornbons had a wrist injury and had to leave the game.
up next, the backup, brent sellic, goes in the game and throws a low snap. he got injured as well. he had to leave. trey burton, who we learned later is their third stringer to fill in. part of the confusion is, you saw linebacker, michael ken tricks on the sideline kind of practicing. michael kendrinks said he took it upon himself. you never know. this is just something i practiced. that was what happened with that situation. trey burton was successful when he came in. a more bizarre part of the game. >> you know when they learned he was the first string long snapper, when we learned it. we learned it all at the same time. >> he said the last time he had done it was in ota. he had practiced a little bit. lucky, he was successful in doing that yesterday. >> let's talk about desean jackson, another big game against the eagles. there have been reports he could come back and play for the bird next season.
now, rumors are swirling because of a security guard at the game. tell us what that's about. >> rumors have been swirling off and on for i would say it heated up in the last month and a half. desean jackson had a good game, finished up with three receptions. he said it was interesting the first time he had been back to the links that the fans hadn't booed him. desean jackson was asked by a security guard, will we see you back here next year. he responded, we'll see. so i guess, guys, we will see. >> yesterday was a job interview for him is what it was. he made a statement about coming back here if he does want to come back. >> he always does. it is one of those things. a lot of people would be happy to have him back considering the receiver position and what we have going on right there. when we find out, we will let you know. >> all right. thanks for keeping us on top of this. jillian mele from csn.
appreciate you. >> see you guys. >> now, we're taking a look at our radar and satellite again. we still have our eye on those areas where icing is a concern. that's berks county, lehigh county and northhampton. hazelton to chestnut hill. allentown may see some freezing rain, a little wintry mix. temperatures are right around freezing. warmer air is starting to wedge in from the south. we have already seen it affecting most of our region. the temperatures quickly picked up as we moved through the early a.m. hours. we started out farther south. it just scooted to the north because of those temperatures warming up. so we're seeing rain in areas like philadelphia, norristown. pockets of heavier rain that passed through westchester. kennett square is in line to see heavier rain, slick roadways, maybe some ponding. the rain will continue over the
next couple of hours and then starting to break apart as we get closer to your lunch hour. what you are looking at right now, wet roadways across the board. new jersey to delaware, a bit more spotty rain. that will continue as well. for the lehigh valley, temperatures boosting above freezing three 8:00 a.m., we are already right around it right now. 33 degrees. we are going to see the rain start to weaken as well between 8:00 to 10:00 a.m. as it starts to move off from the northwest to the southeast. areas like new jersey, we will see rain through the later part of this forecast. 40 by 10:00 a.m. and we will see temperatures by the mid-40s by 2:00 in the afternoon with peeks of sunshine later in the day. for new jersey, same deal where later in the day we may see some sun. notice the rain timelines last through your lunch hour. it is going to move off from west to east. we see it there later. temperatures boosting off to 48 degrees. right around 10-15 miles per
hour. for delaware, we are going to see those conditions more clearly. we will see clouds and peeks throughout the afternoon with forecast highs around the low 50s. huge cooldown on the forecast. we will get to that. >> 5:43. krystal told us earlier if there is any chance for icing on the road in lehigh or berks county. >> i am watching a lot of roads and we are out on 309 right around susquehanna road. no major problems or delays. maybe not here in this spot. either way, the roads are wet. we know it is going to be a problem for the morning commute. so watching the water and the ponding on the roads there. a crash in souderton on main street in east reliance avenue. in northhampton township, an earlier crash caused this closure. there are poles and wires down between holland avenue and rock way. you can't get by.
you can take stump road, a little slow where they are diverting all traffic. taking strum p road down to 232 will pretty much have you by passing the entire scenes. watch for an accident on the expressway eastbound around route 42. route 73, voorheis, new jersey, around cooper road. no major problems or delays. you can see when cars move by. water sprays out from jou underneath. you want to keep your distance. >> thank you, jess. >> back to back to back. the eagles were having an off year but you can see why philly is celebrating these young raiders. also, fighting back with art. we'll show you what neighbors in philly did after seeing racist g graffiti in their community.
bit of an issue. >> might be an issue today, specially for our morning rush, which usually begins in about 45 minutes, krystal. we might see it start a little earlier this morning. 42 in depford around route 31. we are seeing accidents as well. >> as you head out for your morning commute, changes you need to know about on septa's regional railways. some trains will depart earlier or later. changes impact. you can go to nbc10.com or use the nbc10 app. >> the eagles may be sputtering but the youth football team, they are dominant. they are celebrating their third straight national championship. >> hail to the northwest
raiders. nbc 10 was in germantown as the team returned home from nflorid with another pop warner super bowl trophy. they won the title in style on saturday, 42-0, over a team from california. congratulations to them. >> the archdiocese from philadelphia shutting down st. augustine and saint therese and saint madeline's sophie church in philadelphia. the assumption of the blessed virgin mary church in chester county is also closing. the archdiocese says the decision to shut down the churches next month is partially because of maintenance cost. a philadelphia neighborhood is using art to combat racism. they held a chalk-in in the city's queen village session. neighbors said someone spray painted racist remarks on the houses and sidewalks near the school. they hope to use this to spread
a message of love and inclusion. the weather is happening just about the way our meteorologist predicted it. >> we were able to track this one pretty well. it was all about the timing of the warm front that will change things from icier conditions to rain. we wanted rain for this morning commute. it really has timed out how we expected it. still icy spots. allentown, lehigh valley, bucks county. a lot of us with better conditions. the early a.m. hours, which we had expected, we did see some rain/snow mix throughout your pennsylvania suburbs. you might notice some leftover on your cars, a few flakes. for the most part,the rain should have melted that off. west broadway township, 36. now at 33. some spots are very close to freezing still. for the most part, areas like fort washingtonton at 38. gladwin, 38. temperatures are on the good side of things.
we wanted the warm air to move in as quick as possible before the roads got too busy out there. that is what we have seen. even through our delaware neighborhood, that's what we have seen. harmony hills, wilmington, upper 30s. farther south, same deal. allen deal, 44. lincoln, the same. temperatures in the 40s means most temperatures this morning are already warmer than the high temperatures we have seen for the last three days. i am so happy about this. if you like the cold blast, it will return. as expected, we said by about 6:00 a.m., everything should turn to rain. check it out. already, we are starting to see the pink move off to the north of our viewing area. the pink, on radar, typically indicates more wintry mix or icing conditions. the green shows off rain.
still more of a heavier rain in delaware. wilmington, heavier rain which should clip into parts of south jersey and even philadelphia as well as it tracks along from the west to the east. we have a break line here. this won't be the entire end of the precipitation. it should start to come to a calm as we move into the later morning hours and earlier afternoon. here it is on the hour by hour. it shows the pink burning off pretty quickly. pockets of heavier rain moving through 8:00 a.m. then, the showers start to creep on off as we go from 8:00 a.m. through about 1:00 in the afternoon. there we are by 1:00 p.m. wouldn't be surprised by isolated rap isolated rain as well. more on the colder air moving on your ten-day forecast coming up. before 6:00, most of our area escapes icy conditions. there is still rain and ponding on the roadways to deal with. >> let's check in with jessica
boyington. >> we are a little ahead of when we start to see that morning rush start to make app impact. with the wet roads, in addition to that, we are probably going to see a messy morning commute. schuylkill expressway around spring garden, no major problems or delays yet. 15 minutes eastbound from the blue route to the vine. speed are still into the 50s as well. a new accident. this one out in pleasantville. headed westbound near the atlantic city welcome center. no major delays because of that. watching another crash right here. >> an officer and his family lost everything they had in a house fire. a holiday gift is now helping them rebuild their life. just ahead, see the present they got from santa that's helping them recover. he gets a lot of compliments.
