came through the entire area because it was coming down so far for a brief period of time but we have practically nothing left from that snow squall. it's moving offshore here. this is the next area moving in through ohio and into the western pennsylvania and some parts of our area are much more likely than others to see snow with this one. and here we are at 6:00 a.m. coming in through berks county, lehigh valley, poconos and we could see several hours worth of at least light snow. other computer models are more impressive than this one obviously and even into the afternoon there could be some precipitation but by then it may be warm enough for rain in the philadelphia area and even some of the northern suburbs. but there could be anch or so of snow especially on grassy areas. it's 23 degrees in coatesville right now. anything for the morning rush
would stick by afternoon it would tend to melt. here's the neighborhood forecast. we go through the night tonight. we're clearing. we're cold. by tomorrow morning, 4:30, 5:00 a.m. it's still dry but some of that light snow starts coming in, here's 7:30, allentown, quakertown, reading getting a little of that. generally dry farther to the south. as we go through the morning, still some more light snow in allentown, quakertown, reading. now we add trenton to the list and start to get some mixed precipitation in philadelphia area and trenton and perhaps farther south during the afternoon while we still have a mix in allentown. so again, that would be the most likely area. reading, the second most likely area to see some snow accumulation out of that. we have a bigger threat later in the weekend. that is a more significant system. just so happens to be super bowl
sunday. it's going to turn very cold later in the week especially thursday all the way through sunday, way below normal temperatures in some parts of the area may not get to the freezing mark and there is the potential for some accumulation especially from philadelphia northward a wintry mix in some of the other areas. as we get closer we'll pinpoint it even more. >> all right, glenn. can you hear me? it's a question you don't want to answer. >> how scammers are using your response to drain your bank account? >> plus we'll take you inside a super sendoff for a star from our area.

>> announcer: this is sports desk brought to you by xfinity. >> i'm john clark from csn the sixers without joel embiid again. they started the season 2 and 10 without joel but tonight they've won three of their last four without joel. remember two months ago? today demarcus cousin trying to dry the wells fargo center. tj mcconnell, nice. then it's darrio check out the
past down low to robert covington who will finish. sixers go on a 28 to 12 run. covington, looks like carson wentz beats the buzzer. sixers lead after three. they're most in three years. more from darrio in the fourth. look at this pass, wow. darrio gets the hockey assist. kings fighting back. cousins, 46 points, 15 rebounds, kings within one but cousins would foul out and the crowd loves it. sixers beat the kings 122-19, 74 points in the second half. they have won three of their last four without joel. >> i think i'm more hip and i feel it would be because we were losing, maybe all the game, but
you always we can come. >> that's one thing about our team. we haven't gotten discouraged. if things aren't going our way. we tuck our tails and run. >> i think the foundation is starting to prove dividends. >> it doesn't sound like joel embiid is going to play the next two games. he has a knee contusion so he has missed five of the last six. sixers are being cautious. >> joel has this crush tonight. this little girl met her crush. she loves the movie frozen so she sings a song to it in to joel embiid. >> there are the falcons and penn charters he has waited his entire life for this moment. >> we'll enjoy this part of it. it's cool. you never know when you're going to get these opportunities in your life to come out here, have all these fans and media people here so we'll enjoy it tonight.

>> what kind of morning commute are people going to have? >> that depends on what neighborhood you're in as we were saying. lehigh valley, berks county, those areas have the best chance of seeing some snow when you get up in the morning. it's going to be a steady light snow as opposed to those heavy brief snow squalls that we had today. so there's that snowflake for allentown on tuesday but in wildwood, dover, you don't see any precipitation. in philadelphia, perhaps a
little bit of snow. then on wednesday, it's a little bit warmer, starts cooling down thursdays and friday. and then as we go to the ten day on ten you'll see how much colder it's getting thursday, friday and into next weekend and the first chance of any kind of accumulation after tomorrow would be on sunday, just so happens to be super bowl sunday. at the moment doesn't look like a big storm but there are some models that do suggest some potential. >> all right, again. thank you. i'm jacqueline london. >> and i'm jim rosenfield. thanks for watching tonight. we'll see you tomorrow.
