4:00 a.m. to 8:00 a.m., snow changes to icing, freezing rain and sleet. the icing mix changing to rain from south to north across the area, during the morning. by afternoon, earning verythinge and it's just getting drier actually, and it's getting warmer. there might be some fog tomorrow morning, you can see that area is much bigger it was just a few hours ago. by a little after midnight, that area of light snow is coming across most of our pennsylvania counties, into parts of south jersey, another areas moves up to the south, by 6:00 a.m., there's a solid area of snow from the philadelphia region all the way to the poconos, but warmer air is coming up from the south and that's going to change the snow to the ice to the rain. and that timing is extremely critical, neighborhood by neighborhood. and we'll get to that in just a minute.

point we expect an icing situation in northern newcastle county, chester county, the philadelphia area, and even some of our new jersey neighborhoods right across the river. 7:30, 8:00 in the morning, this slowly moves to the north as the atmosphere starts to warm. we could still see an ice any mix. some bucks county could be seeing snow so all these areas you could be dealing with pretty treacherous roadways early. and that ice starts to move up into lehigh valley, still in upper bucks county, and that yellow, that's actually rain starting to form as we continue warming up. again, in the morning, we're looking at the primary time from about 6:00 a.m. to about 10:00 a.m. we'll be tracking the temperatures through the entire morning and that's going to show you when things finally do warm

slippery roads. starting to see a couple of returns, but that is high up in the clouds and not reaching the ground. but a lot of this is. if you've been watching, it just keeps growing and expanding, and this's all part of the system that's moving in this way. now what are we going to have for the timeline? it's a limited portion of the weekend, we're going to have problems. this is 4:00 to 8:00 a.m. snow to mix, the icy mix from 8:00 a.m. to noon, ending from south to north. the afternoon is just fine for travel. the night is going to be warmer. travel issue might be fog by then. and that's about it. hour by hour. watch what happens here afternoon midnight. we have got the snow coming in. another area develops from the south. so by 5:00, 6:00 a.m., it's snowing across most of the area. the darker blues indicating the
heavier snow. chester berks, poconos, mercer county, getting snow accumulate at that time. then there's a change to ice, the warm air is coming up from the south, changing the snow to ice, changing from the ice to rain and that mean that the temperatures are extremely critical. hour by hour, and neighborhood by neighborhood, meteorologist erika martin has more on that. >> reporter: glenn, that's right, it will all be about the temperatures in your neighborhood what you will see. some will see snow, some will see ice and of course widespread rain by tomorrow. temperatures by 11:00 p.m., lots of 20s out there, low 20s for lehigh valley. and notice we're seeing southerly winds getting stronger through the overnight hours, so
by 8:00 a.m. we're all right seeing warmer temperatures for cape may county. philly, delaware, new jersey, still seeing some 20s. but kent county will see low 30s, at the freezing mark. the concern would be the lehigh valley, outer pa suburbs, the temperature will remain below the freezing mark, so it's all about your temperature in your neighborhood as glenn just mentioned. that will dictate the type of weather you will see. >> and krystal and bill will be here tomorrow to keep track of those temperatures hour by hour. by tomorrow afternoon, we're drying out, the temperature is going up, and then sunday the next area of rain will come in and it will be much warmer during that time. when is the ice going to end? it's mostly rain far to the
south, 6:00 to 7:00 a.m., from dover, middletown, up to vineland, 7:00 to 9:00 a.m., most of the philadelphia area, farther to the north, 9:00 to 11:00 a.m. for king of prussia, west chester, buckingham and then 11:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. up through allentown and redding. so if you wait long enough, the weather will improve. a little bit more to the north and west, and the ice may be the toughest thing. and travel to the west or the north or even down to washington, it's not recommended in the morning. sixers-lakers tonight at 8:00 here at the wells fargo center in south philly. it's the first time the lakers will be in town. allen iverson will be in town tonight. i'm here with all the details next in sports.
