tv NBC10 News at 5pm NBC December 16, 2016 5:00pm-6:01pm EST
two days ago. now we're expanding it to just about the entire area except for southern delaware and southeast new jersey. from 11:00 p.m. friday into saturday morning for accumulating snow, icy mix and slippery roads and maybe even icy roads and maybe even accumulation on roads and power lines in the morning. 4:00 a.m. to 8:00 a.m., snow changes to ice, freezing rain, 8:00 a.m. to noon, from south to north, it changes over to rain. the afternoon is just fine. mostly dry. and at night, it's just fine. so just sleep later and the day will be okay. we got cloudy skies now, the snow starting to get closer, the area expanding, and so everything is coming in on schedule, close to midnight here as you can see, some of the first snow moving in, of course
it will start as snow, the atmosphere is plenty cold enough. but as we go through the morning hours, the warmer air will come in from the south, it will change the snow, the darker the blue, the heavier the snow. you can see that out here at 7:00 a.m. in the lehigh valley, in the meantime it's raining, perhaps heavier rain farther south, you see the yellow areas from philadelphia to dover, cape may, by 9:30, it's raining hard and it's changed over from snow in allentown, over to ice. and that may be the biggest issue with this storm by the time its over. and that's why meteorologist sheena parveen is going to break that down hour by hour and place by place. >> and just minutes ago, penn dot gave an update on its crews brining the roads for the last in hours, salt truck also head out to try to keep the snow
melting, and if it starts to pile up, plows are at the ready. >> the philadelphia streets department was loading up trucks in northeastern philadelphia. officials tell us they hope to get roads salted before the snow comes down. they're saying the salt should take care of most of the snow so plowing won't be necessary. >> clearly by the video we just showed you, the roads are going to be the biggest concern and with the roads, the ice will be the biggest concern after the snow if you're in the areas where the snow will be falling. now we're going to looking at the most dangerous times to be on the road tomorrow morning. 6:00 in the morning, the ice already beginning in parts of delaware, quickly trying to change over to rain. now we look at 6: 30, chester county, parts of newcastle county, delaware county into the philadelphia area, some of our
new jersey suburbs could be seeing ice by 6:30 in the morning making for very slippery roadways. now we're going to go from 6:30 to 8:00 in the morning. partses of bucks county, chester county as well still seeing the ice. and we could be seeing some icing in the philadelphia area as temperatures try to warm up. closer to 8:30, 9:00 in the morning, the ice starts spreading up to the north. n in berks and lehigh county temperatures at this time at the surface should still be cold enough to cause freezing on contact, and that is why a lot of the roads are going to have to be treated as we go through the event. and through the 9:00 and 10:00
hour, it will spread farther to the north. upper bucks county, we'll keep an eye on as well as the lehigh valley, at this point, if you're in the areas south of the pink, you will have already transitioned to rain. in poconos, they may see some icing, 9:00 in the morning, a lot of people waking up and getting out the door at that time. so you want to watch here, we'll be showing you the temperatures in each of the neighborhoods in the morning, because that temperature is going to be very important as all this keeps falling. >> what do people know if they are going to be going out on the roads tomorrow morning? >> first of all, tune in here, we're going to be on watching the whole thing. you want to make sure your temperatures are either a little bit above freezing at that point and that we're not seeing anymore frozen precip on the
roads, because this is extremely dangerous. so you really want to wait until the changeover occurs from ice to rain. >> but we're not talking about a total washout for the whole weekend? >> no, mostly just tomorrow morning, the time frame from 10:00, 11:00, we'll see most of this drying. it's really the morning we're most concerned about. we'll be showing you the temperatures on nbc 10 throughout the morning, the temperatures are going to be crucial. let's take a live look at the blue cross river rink in penn's landing, skaters will feel the cold throughout the weekend and then it's going to feel like spring again. erika mar teen has more on that in just about five minutes. breaking news we're following in camden county, this is unfolding on cross keys road

we're starting to see how that southerly wind, that warm front that's on its way from the south will start to warm areas, you can see how warm it is in the south. cape may county, atlantic county, you're going to see temperatures already in the 40s about 6:00, 7:00 a.m., meanwhile philly metro areas are going to see mid to upper 30s. and as those warmer temperatures climb from the south to the north and start to climb into the 40s, of course that's when you start to see the changeover, snow, wintry mix, some ice, a little bit of sleet and then widespread rain for entire area. >> the first alert weather team is tracking the latest developments on this weekend blast. >> sheena parveen will have more on the snow totals for your neighborhood and also when that snow should be turning to ice and rain. plus, season over, scandal that's keeping princeton swim

that his election was a movement, not the result of russian hacking. republicans on trump's transition team say this is just sour grapes on behalf of obama. >> we won fair and square, even if they did something to hack or do something to the election, we won anyway and it didn't really have an impact. just looking at that makes you feel cold, and listen to that wind. stream winter weather hit upstate new york, snow along with 50-mile-per-hour winds created blizzard conditions. our winter boost caused
trucks to be filled with tons of rock salt. this truck can hold 100,000 pounds of the ice melt. they will hit each main road and side street in the township. >> typically the police will call us up and tell us that the street getting slippery. so we'll immediately call the guys in and start to salt the roads. >> and if you see a salt truck or a snowplow, be sure to stay far behind, give them plenty of space. >> the main concern tomorrow morning is going to be ice. if you're heading outside and you have the friday night plans, we're dry and we're in the mid 20s. it feels about 10 degrees colder now when you factor in the wind, it's still going to stay well below freezing, but at least we're not feeling like single digits currently.
but we're very cold. the snow is back off to our west, and it's heading in our direction. later tonight, and we're talking close to midnight, that is when this snow start to move in, not for everybody, but for parts of the area. for philadelphia, and parts of new jersey, mostly interior new jersey and northern delaware, that's where this first alert is going to be briefly, then longer for the pa suburbs, especially lehigh valley and berks county. at 11:00 p.m. tonight, it will start through saturday with a very icy. if you're going to head out on the roads tomorrow, you want to wait until a little later. we're going through tonight. there you see the snow, by midnight, temperatures well below freezinging, anything falling from the sky would be
snow by midnight. could see some snow in pennsylvania suburbs, lehigh valley, maybe a little bit in new jersey too. by 5:00 in the morning, 5:350, that's when we see an even bigger area of moisture moving in. so snow falling for the poconos, pennsylvania suburbs, philadelphia area, even parts of new jersey. then we'll see rain farther down to the south, cape may 42 degrees. even much of delaware. 6:30, we start to get warming condition, so interior new jers jersey, a little bit farther north through the pennsylvania suburbs, snow still falling in the lehigh valley, 9:30, the icing moves farther north. now we're talking about the lehigh valley, even by 9:30, we'll see icy conditions, elsewhere farther south, we'll start to warm up a little bit.
it quickly cuts off. so by midday tomorrow, we could already be looking at drying conditions. we keep on getting warmer throughout saturday night and sunday morning we get more rain moving in and this will last through sunday afternoon. so tomorrow morning is going to be the biggest concern out of the weekend. here are some of the snow totals, around the philadelphia area, up to parts of mercer county, maybe around an inch. pennsylvania suburbs, one to two inches, plus the ice that will also be a concern for a while. lehigh valley including berks county could see two to four irmgs, and the poconos, three to six inches. here's your entire weekend forecast, tomorrow morning, the first alert, icy conditions, wait until it's over, we're going to be tracking the temperatures very closely starting very early noerj, we'll be tracking them through the entire event so you can see when it's above freezing so it's
safer to get out on the roads. but we'll warm up do 60 degrees in some areas, but then temperatures start to drop late in the day sunday, we get cold again on monday, back in the 30s. coming up we'll take a closer look at the timing. christmas came early for some kids in delaware. police officers from all over newcastle county brought truckloads of toys to the kids at ai dupont hospital for children in wilmington. santa was there as well to hear kids' wishes. this is the first year for the event, all arranged by the state fraternal order of police. are you make the most of your credit cards, we'll show you some little known perks that could help you this holiday season.

olney today. this construction worker in windfield had no problem. look at his breath there. you can see it in today's frosty temperatures, layering clearly key to staying warm outside. >> temperatures are going to warm up big-time before the weekend is over, but first we have to get through some snow, some ice and some rain. >> combined, the extreme cold we had with snow moving in and then you get the probability of it sticking as soon as it starts, we have issued this first alert a couple of days ago for this event. and now we have expanded it to cover almost all of our area, except for extreme southern delaware and extreme south jersey. this is for 7:00 p.m. tonight through saturday morning, for accumulating snow, an icy mix and some slippery roads and some icing conditions, especially 4:00 to 8:00 a.m., the later you
sleep, the less of this you're going to see. changing over rain, by rain, it is dry and at night, it's warming up. so you don't have the travel issues there other than potential fog tomorrow night. as we go through the evening, as you can see, temperatures are going up, but we don't see the snow generally until after mid, and it will be snowing early in the morning. a lot of you are going to wake up, wake up 6:00 a.m. or so, it's going to be snowing. but not at the jersey shore. you see temperatures already up into the 30s. now we have the clouds already in the area. the snow area is growing and moving a little closer. and it's still on target to be coming into the area, generally a little after midnight, starting off light but of course it would stick to untreated
surfaces pretty quickly. as it gets darker blue, that's the heavier snow, by 6:00 a.m., we have got a solid area all across the region. but warmer air is coming in, and as we showed you with the timetable, this is all going to be changing with the rain as we go through the morning hours, of course the biggest threat with this storm is the icing, and meteorologist sheena parveen has more on the timing of that. >> the biggest concern, the ice in the morning, starting off with snow, we'll eventually see a transition to ice. at 6:00 a.m., we're talking about the most dangerous time to be on the road. if you have to be on the road, if you want to be on the road, wait until this all is over and it warms up. snow for most of the area, north and west by 6:00 a.m., then we see the ice in pink. rain farther to the south, but north newcastle county, delaware, sections of newcastle
county, there is ice on the roads. 8:00 on saturday, now moving into berks county, chesters county, montgomery county as well, parts of berks county as well with still some snow falling. now we're going into the 9:00, still berks county and now up into the poconos and even we could still see it in parts of upper bucks county. again, you don't want to be on the roads when this ice is falling. surface temperatures will be very important at the time this is all moving through, so we will be here tracking those temperatures for you neighborhood by neighborhood, because as they start to rise, conditions will start to improve, once they get above freezing. until then, we're looking at an icing event through much of the weekend. coming up we'll take a closer look at the rest of your weekend. >> nbc10 will keep you updated on the changing conditions

and that's because of a south wind. the feels like temperature at 10:00 will still be in the low 20s, but that southwest wind continues to tomorrow and that will start to warm up the atmosphere, so when we see snow falling, it will eventually freeze into an icy mix. that's going to be an issue in the morning. philadelphia, new jersey, northern delaware, pa suburbs and the lehigh valley. it will start around 11:00 p.m., and go through tomorrow morning. we expect accumulating snow at the start and then we'll transition to an icy mix. if you need to be out there driving, try and wait until this is over. here's what it looks like on satellite and radar. closest snow approaching buffalo, but we're going to stay dry for most of your friday night. we don't see that snow approach
until about midnight. now we're looking at mid might, temperatures in about the mid 20s, areas south in the 30s. anything falling moving in, that's going to be snow at this point and we mostly see it north and west of philadelphia. snow falling and accumulating, now look at 6:30 in the morning, we expect it to still be falling in the pennsylvania suburbs, and the poconos. rain farther to the south, but that pink area in between, that is the biggest area of concern, that is going to be ice, it gets even larger as you go farther south towards baltimore and d.c. so that could a pretty significant icing event. you notice temperatures start to warm, that all transitions to rain. philadelphia area by 8:00 a.m. could still be seeing some icing, close to 10 area, the icing area continues into the
lehigh valley and the poconos. most of the area changes over to rain. but the temperature is going to be critical. anything 30 or below, we'll see icing. when it warming up above 32 degrees, we'll see more rain and roads. 3:00 p.m. in the afternoon, we'll see a pretty good dry stretch through the second half of your saturday, but by sunday morning, the rain comes back, rain comes back, near 60 degrees across your region tomorrow morning. snow totals. one to two, pennsylvania suburbs, plus the changeover to ice, in the lehigh valley, two to high. and the poconos are going to love it, about three to six
inches of snow. we see the ice event coming early on saturday. it's not going to be a whole day, we'll see some drying, but by sunday, we warm up, rain comes back and we cool down later in the day. >> this weather is making us feel kind of blue, but it's not the weather at all. it's sheena parveen's last day here on nbc10, heading down the road to nbc in washington. >> i've been saying the whole time, it's bittersweet. >> you're a special part of clear the shelters. there you are at clear the shelters. also you loved weather education day and those experiments you did with the kids. >> yeah, especially glenn, i was worried about the liquid nitrogen. >> we're not far away, washington's close enough, and you're joining a great family
