areas further north and west. northern and western pennsylvania suburbs. looec looking at 6-10 inches of snow on the grass. less on roads and sidewalks. they're going to stay warmer. a lot of the first snow is going to be melting. for the suburbs and philadelphia, immediate suburbs to philadelphia, this is a 4-6 inch rain. that extends into lower bucks county, lower montgomery county. into the trenton area and burlington county as well. and to the shore and ocean county. further to the south, less snow here because just going to stay too warm for it to the accumulate all that much. 2-4 inches on the grass. less snow expected on the hard services like roads. and will you know, the pen dot and new jersey dot and delaware dot are going to be all over this one. majors will likely be in pretty good shape. going to be snow to be clearing in those areas. however, further to the south, we're just going to be looking at rain for the most part. any snow that may be falling in southern delaware and south jersey is going to melt as it
hits. so tracey, you're absolutely right. vast difference from what we're experiencing this morning with temperatures in the 60s to what we feel and see tomorrow morning. >> talking about this during the break, for people traveling personal or business, even on the best of days i call the airline anyway. tomorrow afternoon, may clear up and probably fine for those traveling in the afternoon and friday. >> flying in and out of philadelphia won't be a problem. it's other airports that can have an impact on ours. massive storm going right past us and into new england. may be travel delays beyond us tomorrow. >> flying through chicago, new england, any of those places. heads up. call the airline. >> we'll keep you updated on all of it. now is a good time to download the free app. keep you updated. stay up-to-date on the storm's track. you can also get realtime alerts when the snow is moving in in along with information on school closings and delays and we will be on early tomorrow morning at
