got snow coming in. generally blowing around. it's going to come pretty much straight down. once it does start. generally 7:00 p.m. to 5:00 a.m. the peek from 11:00 p.m. to 3:00 a.m. the road crew s can take care o things. averaging about two inches. higher elevations in chester, upper montgomery, upper bucks, maybe about three and less toward the pocono and jersey show. 7:00 a.m. the snow is no longer falling, but what has fallen is still going to be there. so sidewalks, driveways, untreated surfaces are still going to be slippery. here is the radar over the last couple of hours. you can see the radar echoes expanding, the atmosphere is getting more and more saturated. the lower levels are still dry. most of that not reaching the ground. this is western half of pennsylvania, you can see everything is moving east.
5:48 pm
there is no way to miss this. it's absolutely going to snow tonight. 33 in philadelphia, 30 in allentown, coatsville wilmington down to 29. it will drop more when the snow actually starts. and here we are, 7:00, 8:00, start to get a few flakes in parts of the area. 10:00, much of the region is seeing at least some snow and in the middle of the night, just about everybody is seeing snow. the darker blue indicating the heavier snow, although there's not really, really dark. it's a little bit darker towards the jersey show at 2:00 in the morning when it's already ending in the northern and western suburbs. 4:30 a.m. and it's just about over in philadelphia and delaware. it will take another hour to end down toward the shore. look at the temperatures, it's not going to get up close to freezing during the day tomorrow. now, how much snow? i'm thinking generally an average of around two inches. like i said a little bit more in
5:49 pm
the higher elevations. lesser amounts up to the north and to the south. that's with the friday system. keep that in mind. tomorrow morning, by 7:00 a.m., everybody is -- it's just not snowing anymore. but it's cold. and you got to get rid of the snow that's on your car, on your sidewalks and driveways. and it's still cold through 9:00 a.m. temperature doesn't go up very much. maybe the sun coming out a little bit will help melt things. this is a more significant storm that's going to be developing friday night and saturday. way down to the south it's going to track offshore. we'll be on the northern edge of this. and this has a lot more moisture, so it has more potential, especially right along the delaware beaches and the jersey shore. just a 50 mile change in the track would bring some of that heavier snow towards the shore. and that's possible. and if we do have that 50 mile shift, we'll even get some snow
5:50 pm
in the philadelphia area. still not going to get it in the poconos, this is the european model, world's best, this afternoon showing an average of about three inches along the jersey shore and down into the delaware beaches. that's about an average for the various models. all the models are showing how cold it's going to be and feel. it's going to feel like the teens all day on saturday. the weekend is just brutal. and then on sunday morning, it's feeling like it's closer to zero. sunday afternoon, it still feels like it's only eight degrees in doyles town. the high temperatures over the weekend. the average high is 40. no where near that saturday and sunday. sunday with the wind is going to feel the coldest. but no precipitation there. here's your storm on saturday. jersey shore getting it. delaware getting some. south jersey getting some. and as you can see, we separate different neighborhoods. some neighborhoods are going to get it saturday, others won't. >> thank you so much, glenn.
