cinnamonton 44 degrees, robbinsville 42, princeton at 47. as the precipitation moves in, on saturday morning, these neighborhood weather stations are going to be critical because we're going to be going from snow to a wintry mix to rain and hour by hour, you'll be able to check that, along with the forecast for your neighborhood for saturday. we do have a little bit of light snow on the radar, but as you can see, it's mostly headed up toward new york state and it's also an area that's shrinking, it's a very weak system. as we go through the night tonight, and into tomorrow we see perhaps a couple of flakes, brief, but it's all gone by 6:00 a.m. so if there are any flakes flying in the lehigh valley, for example late this evening, they're going to be gone by morning. and the temperature not warming
4:49 pm
up a whole lot, generally upper 30s for highs tomorrow, and you're going to long for that by thursday, because thursday the afternoon temperatures are not going to be any more than the morning temperatures, plus the wind is gusting to 40 miles an hour. so the arctic air that we have been following, coming right in here, no doubt about it, the problem is, moisture is coming in too, and we got to get the arctic air out of here if you just want rain and that's hard to do. and that's why i think there's going to be some snow first and then we get the changeover. by tuesday, we're warming up again, and there we go, thursday, just a few days before christmas weekend, but some colder air is coming in, so i don't think it's going to be really warm on christmas. now look at this, philadelphia to the lehigh valley, this is an example of neighborhood weather because we're going to see big differences. on saturday, it will get up to
4:50 pm
43, early snow and then rain, it will be snowing for many more hours, and more accumulation and it will be colder in lehigh. and look at the difference in the temperature sunday. get it on your app and we have got some big changes, there's the cold air thursday, friday, there's the storm saturday, by sunday morning, look at that, we're in the 50s. and then we cool down next week, at least in the early portion of the week, before we warm up later in the week. >> at least we rebound, but what a dropoff. they made a remarkable recovery. >> coming up next, the quest to find some dogs new places to call home. >> a bunch of delaware dogs were in a very bad situation, now they need a very good situation, like maybe the one at your house. coming up, meet these nice dogs that need a little love.
