and you get this potential pink area, potential icincing. but even allentown gets out of the snow and into rain, 9:00, 10:00 in the morning. that's all you got to wait. but the mountains back here, central and western pennsylvania, i wouldn't be traveling across that until saturday afternoon either because they're going to clear out later than we do. saturday afternoon could even by dry, then comes more rain on sunday, potentially heavier rain, but those temperatures are like about 60, at 6:00 a.m. sunday in december, 61 in mt. holly and in millville. as that area comes in, the temperatures start to plunge, it's back to 45 degrees, by 11:00 a.m., how much snow, not a
whole lot, about an inch in the philadelphia area, a little bit of icing, one to two, much of chester, montgomery, bucks county, a little bit of icing too. 2 to 4 inches upper bucks. that could cause some significant problems for a brief period of time and 3 to 6 in the poconos. look at these wild temperature swings, so tomorrow night, we're 25, by 11:00 a.m. saturday, it's 28, by 11:00 p.m., it's 62, 62 by 5:00 a.m. sunday, then the temperature starts to plunge again. that is wild. we do not often get changes like this from 27 to 62, in a two-day period, and even in the lehigh valley, 26 to 49. >> crazy weather. all right, well, a long island woman accidently throws
