4:01 am
river and it's already spent water out onto the streets. what do conditions look like this morning? >> reporter: take a look behind me. this is what the delaware river in yardly looks like. the ice is not allowing the river to flow normally so it's spilling onto the banks and as we pull out, you can see in some areas specifically along river road in yardly, that means streets have flooded. there's several barricades up protecting drivers and preventing cars from continuing down this stretch of river road at yardly. now, i called police here to find out if there are any new flooding concerns this morning. so far we're not hearing of any. but as you can see in this daylight video, there are other concerns here. people have been seen walking on the ice chunks into the river. we even saw kids doing that yesterday. that's an incredibly dangerous practice as these ice chunks can

4:09 am
see any accumulation from that. this is the first patch of snow that's coming through. very light stuff. the main area of this system is still to the west. we're not talking a lot of snow during the day today, but there's a chance we'll see some scattered snow showers. the temperatures above freezing this afternoon. so it's less likely we'll see snow showers, might even see sprinkles of rain drops today. hour by hour shows dry for most of the morning into this afternoon. and then tonight here it comes. rain showers are possible into south jersey. and then the snow comes through and is out of here later tomorrow morning. and we have clearing conditions. i'll show you how much snow to expect when i'm back in 10 minutes. certainly slow going right now in the early morning hours with slow traffic. >> yeah, it's usually light. but jessica boyington watches
4:10 am
the cameras just to give you a heads up. >> on i-95 right around route 322 where we have one lane getting by on this southbound side. this is just kind of near the new jersey pa state line. so watching slow traffic moving in that direction. this continued on into the afternoon as well. so that might be an ongoing project staying there for a little while. and watching the schuylkill expressway where we're closed on the eastbound side diverting traffic over there, and right now westbound has one lane closed as there. moving through center city, although it's a construction project we're a little bit used to. also reports watching around trenton for those flooding conditions, route 29. yesterday the southbound ramp to market was closed. watch for that as you head out the door. thank you, jessica.

4:17 am
>> bill henley is going to tell you what's happening in your neighborhood. >> just enough to make things slippery especially tonight. the best chance of seeing snow showers is going to be the lee high valley. it's dry right now, but there are some snow showers in the region. temperatures certainly cold enough even new jersey for snow. today we're starting off with clouds over the entire area. areas are dry right now, but that changes. for new jersey most likely we'll see showers tonight. during the day, well, this is what we're starting on, some very light snowfall which is trying to make it to the ground. most neighborhoods are completely dry. but look at the system. as it winds up from the west and stretches to pennsylvania, kentucky and tennessee. so this is slow moving system. it's going to be impacting our area through tonight and into
4:18 am
tomorrow morning. and it's really tonight and tomorrow morning that we will see the worst of it in our area. but that being said, there are going to be some scattered showers this morning and even this afternoon for areas north and west. less likely for philadelphia where it is cloudy right now. and actually the temperatures because of the delayed start of the snow and the showers, the temperatures are going to climb above freezing during the day. here's another view of the hour by hour forecast. this is 9:00 this morning. and you can see the very light snow into the lee high valley and inching into the poconos mountains. dry for trenton and northeast philadelphia. that's 9:00. let's fast forward still looking at a few snow showers. we may see some breaks in the precipitation. not steady snowfall into untunt tonight. ask you will see that, too. above freezing in philadelphia.
4:19 am
cloudy skies for the suburbs, dry in south jersey. finally this evening at 8:00, that steadier snow, you can see it building off to the north and west. watch what happens as we go into the early morning hours tomorrow. at 2:00 in the morning that snow falling in the suburbs and lee high valley. temperatures will be above freezing, and in between you can see it starts off with some rain, but by 4:00 this time tomorrow morning we're looking at sthnow for philadelphia, northeast philadelphia. snow will be around for morning commute at 7:00. but there's the tail end of it. and late in the morning, early afternoon the snow is done and we will see clearing skies tomorrow. how much to expect? well, the greatest amount is going to be to the north and west. 1 to 2 inches is possible in
4:20 am
philadelphia. it may be closer to that 1 inch mark for many. in south jersey it might just be some rain showers and no accumulation is possible by tomorrow morning. it's a really slow moving system, and we're looking at light precipitation. so there's not a lot of moisture in the atmosphere. that's good. but we all know as jessica has told me many times, it doesn't take much snow to make things slippery. so that's why we've issued a first alert with an abundance of caution today and tomorrow morning. >> just a heads up. no need to get bread, eggs, milk. >> we're not telling you not to go to your local super market. >> let's talk about the traffic. jessica? a few things, actually. i'm watching the schuylkill expressway. that's moving westbound. so we started where we had these
4:21 am
lanes locked there. we have lanes out there where there's about one, two lanes getting by in some spots, on the shoulder, too. on the eastbound side is completely closed. usually reopened around the 5:00 marker, so sometimes they're a little early, so we'll keep watching that for you. and watching a crash in trenton. route 29 southbound at calhoun street and memorial drive exit also is blocked and closed right now because of reports of flooding and conditions driving out there. and end on the 42 freeway where there's no problem. moving up to philadelphia, a 5 minute trip and speeds into the high 50s, too. held captive. dozens of brothers and sisters are found locked inside a home. the daring escape that led police to them and the horror found inside. and it's 4:21. on the hot seat, the russia
