4:00 pm
your most accurate weather forecast, and it's the morning rush you're worried about, right? >> yeah, i know it's hard to believe we can go from temperatures in the 60s to snow problems for the morning rush, but it's going to happen. it really is going to happen. these are the concerns for the morning rush. the heavy snow95:00 and 9:00 a.m., at the peak of the storm, throwing at 2 to 3 inches per hour. thundersnow is possible in that period, visibility very low and snow covered road. sure, traffic is going to be hazardous for several hours. not all day tomorrow, just several hours of it. here's the way it looks tonight. could start as rain overnight tonight. ground is wet, and then all of a sudden, the colder air comes in and it changes to snow. that's three, four, five in the morning, and of course, it starts earlier north and west, and they're going to end up with
4:01 pm
more snow. but look at 6:30, the darker blue indicating the heavier snow, covering much of the area. all the way down into delaware and much of south jersey, and 9:00 a.m., it's still snowing hard. but as we get closer to noon, look what happens. it's ending from west to east, this is heavy but very brief storm that going to be affecting us. so the snow totals are somewhat limited because of the speed of this thing. so even that, 6 to 10 inches, across the lehigh valley, berks county, upper bucks. 4 to 8 inches tloum the philadelphia area, wilmington, trenton, and 2 to 4 inches a little farther to the south. that's the general picture. we'll give you snow totals for your neighborhood coming up a little later. >> all right, glenn. sky force 10 was over the salt piles today as trucks loaded up to pretreat the roads. as glenn mentioned, the heaviest

4:03 pm

4:16 pm
some people because let's say you wake up in philadelphia. 5:00 a.m., and it's raining or we have snow and it's melting. and you think, oh, they're all crazy. but it's just going to get worse very quickly. conditions are going to deteriorate once we change to heavy snow. that's generally between 5:00 and 9:00 a.m. especially north and west, it will happen earlier. but it's going to happen even in philadelphia. the snoet rates, 2 to 3 inches an hour with thundersnow possible, low visibility. flights cancelled. i'm sure, tomorrow morning in many areas in the northeast. the storm impact scale, it's high, for lehigh valley, berks county, p.a. suburbs. starts at 2:00 to 3:00 a.m., accumulation. they had bigger storms than that. last year, there was a 30-incher. but this is happening right during the morning rush. going to be very windy and the falling temperatures. this storm impact in
4:17 pm
philadelphia, north delaware, and much of south jersey is going to be high, partly because of the timing here. starts 5:00 to 7:00 a.m. again, changes from rain to snow very quickly. the heaviest, 5:00 to 9:00, accumulating 4:00 to 8:00, low visibility and snowy roads. here's the winter radar now. nothing much on it, but this is the storm moving from west to east, we don't have to wait for the storm to develop along the coast like we do sometimes in winter and sometimes they don't develop or they develop too far offshore or develop too late. that one is already there. moving right this way. here's the snow area, middle of the night, by 5:30 in the morning, computers showing the changeover right in the philadelphia area. i-95, corridor, rain to the south and east. parts of our area are going to get rain and others get heavy snow at the same time. that rain/snow line is going to keep moving down to the south,
4:18 pm
and by 9:00 a.m., just about everybody is getting snow, and even at the shore, that's a mix. could be some areas of heavy sleet tomorrow. you can also see the ending of this from west to east, that is going to limit the snowfall totals because no matter how heavy the snow is falling, if it's only a matter of a few hours, as opposed to all day like we have had some big snow storms in the past, that is a big factor. so, 6 to 10 inches is the highest general that we're going, and that includes allentown and kutztown and redding, pottstown, warrington, and this pinkish area, 4 to 8 inches. abington, radnor, philadelphia itself, brookhaven, westchester, even wilmington and newark, delaware. gloucester, new jersey. also trenton, pemberton,
