6:02 am
the wipers on full blast. temperaturewise, we're around freezing for the most part. 34 in atlantic city. 32 in philadelphia. we're at 30 in reading and allentown. this is good that we're already close to freezing as we see that temperature rise the next few hours, that will push us above freezing and help with us seeing rain instead of snow and ice. mostly in the north and west neighborhoods, we have a morning concern. we have snow approaching the area. from 10:00 a.m. to 3:00 in the afternoon, temperatures are still close to freezing. particularly in the upper portions of the suburbs and the lehigh valley and berks county. may get slick and icy on roadways. and when the rain comes to an end kocoming up. >> krystal, thank you. today is the day. it's here. we're a little more than 12 hours away from the eagles going for super bowl glory.

6:04 am
behind it. you think about the things you're going to say if it happens, when it happens. once it happens, it's hard to really sink in the magnitude of what was just told to me a couple of hours ago. a blessing. >> also those beautiful, beautiful fans that everybody is trying to hate on right now, that -- i told you, we're going to all celebrate. this is not just me. congratulations philly. you hall of fame fans. >> how about that. dawkins and t.o. both played in the eagles last super bowl back in 2005. >> we remember it well. >> when nbc 10 got the word that both brian dawkins and t.o. made it into the hall of fame, we were at xfinity live. >> it didn't take long for fans to react to the news. >> listen, been the leader of the defense, still involved with the city.

good morning. let's talk about the snow and rain time. i'm krystal klei. we're starting out around 10:00 a.m. to noon with mostly the north and west neighborhoods seeing snow, possibly ice/slush mixture falling. it's the morning hours, getting outrunning errands in the neighborhoods, take it easy as you're driving. by noon through 4:00 p.m., rain spreads. we're talking through the rest of the viewing area, as well as into the north and west neighborhoods. so turning over to rain in those locations which will help to melt down slick spots. as you head to the parties, also
6:13 am
take it slow and as i've been saying, windshield wipers at full blast. as you head home, hopefully it exits the area. still wet roadways out there. let's take a look at the planner as we start our day. if you have plans before you get ready for the game, 8:00 a.m., around freezing in philadelphia. but we get to 40 around noontime. we should make it to mid-40s for highs. even though the rain is moving through, winds are coming from the south. that allows us to warm up more so than we would yesterday. in the suburbs, 36 at your lunchtime and around the mid-30s at noontime in the lehigh valley. it's again going to lead to snow falling. it turns over to rain by 4:00. for delaware, new jersey, the shore, temperatures quickly into the mid-40s with a rainy forecast this afternoon. we'll be right back.
6:14 am
6:15 am
6:15 with high temperatures during the day in the single digits. it's zero right now. this is an ice sculpture's paradise here. >> exactly.

6:19 am
as you head out the door today. this is an active weather forecast for us. a lot of people will be headed out the door. the rain jacket, maybe something warmer. it is cold this morning. right around freezing. make sure the umbrella is on hand. it gets heavy afternoon into early evening. of course, you should have chips and dip and everything that's green if you're going to be out today. otherwise, you're going to get kicked out of store. you got to wear green today. radar and satellite, this is the wide view we have. there's so much going on here. yesterday, we mentioned first the snow will approach us. then a lot of moisture from the southwest is going to pump our direction. it's going to turn into offshore low. that is going to drive in the heavy rain for this afternoon. let's run through the hour by hour model for us here. we start with the morning hours. this is when we have some concerns north and west. as we were mentioning, snow starts about 10:00 a.m. the models seem consistent on
6:20 am
that. been returns on radar, but not making it to the surface yechlt around 10:00, 11:00, aim, we head to berks county. overnight, we were below freezing. yesterday below freezing. we're going to be cold. through lunchtime, that snow dips into parts of bucks, montgomery, chester county. philadelphia could see a few flakes approaching the noon hour. quickly, with the south wind, we pump it up into the 40s. then everything turns over into rain. by 2:00, 3:00, that should pull out to lehigh and berks county. be wary of slippery spots in the northernmost edge of the viewing zone. about the time you'd driving to the party, take caution, use the wipers and drive responsibly as you go out today. mid to upper 40s further to the
6:21 am
south. we stick with the 40s through 8:00 when the heaviest rain on this model presses through. by around 11:00 p.m. or so, looks like the rain will be exiting. this is about the time i expect the game to wrap up. wet roadways even if you don't have to see the rain coming down are still likely. still a slick drive out there. through tomorrow morning, now we're dry. but because temperatures have fallen below freezing, there could be slippery spots since we're getting so much rain. so just want to run through this again. berks county, even the suburbs, about 10:00 a.m. through 3:00 is when you may see slipperiness on cold roads. take it easy. hey, in minneapolis, if you're curious what our friends are dealing with. 4 degrees around kickoff time this

6:29 am
satellite. we've got a fairly quiet picture. what was the return on radar an hour or two ago was not making it to the ground. but it shows us that the atmosphere is cold enough to support snow currently. there's a little more that's barely to the west trying to make its way to us. this morning, there's a chance in the north and west neighborhoods of light snow. the better chance, that comes for rain in the afternoon, right on into the evening. at times, look at this. that yellow, orange, red near atlanta, it's heavy rain that is falling and moving our direction. we are looking at a wet forecast coming this afternoon. temperatures up against the freezing line. 30 in allentown and reading. 32 in philadelphia. this is a good thing. because we're going to go up some. we have south wind and it pumps in warmer air. we're going to push above freezing. that's why the focus is mostly rain instead of snow across the region. look at the trend here.
6:30 am
we're into the mid-40s this afternoon. but for the north and west neighborhoods during the morning hours when some of that snow falls, it could be a little slippery. coming up in a few minutes, here. people are going to be cold waiting in line to get into that stadium for super bowl sunday. it's here. >> it's hard to believe it's actually here. eagles fans have been waiting for this day for 13 years. 2005 is the last time they were at the big game. they're hoping that it ends with a big win against the new england patriots. the birds, they had a light day of work yesterday. they took buses to u.s. bank wh not. the owner was there. he's hoping to lift of the lombardi trophy tonight while the confetti falls on the winning team. >> now we're hours away from super bowl lii. we're down to hours. >> it's amazing. here are the two starting quarterbacks and what they will be thinking as they step on to the field tonight. >> i know at that moment, it
