6:01 am
coating, maybe a couple of you with closer to a quarter to a half inch and most road surfaces that were pretreated overnight have done fine. i will tell that you some sidewalks could give you a problem and we've got a concrete terrace out here that has a little bit of air flow beneath it but it is definitely frozen up. i just about did a face planter out here a seconds ago. be careful under foot and some of those untreated surfaces. there's another round of snow showers beginning to build up through southern new castle county delaware crossing into salem and cumberland county. farther south you can see how it's mixing with a little rain and lancaster county about to pick up some of that as well so there is more snow shower activity on the way. again the first batch that came through was real light but looks like this next one might be a little bit more robust. you can see the brighter white shades beginning to bloom in washington. 33 in millville so really anywhere from millville up through i-95 corridor up through the lehigh valley and berks county, if you do get snow showers, you could see some slick spots and in those places where you see the freezing temperatures right now, you may also have some of that icy buildup in places
6:02 am
from the previous snow showers. winter weather advisory in effect until 6:00 a.m. wednesday. looks like most of our off and on snow showers will be during the day and tonight a little bit of lingering stuff overnight. and notice how it is a warning out in lancaster county, chester county and parts of delaware county where generally we're looking at two to 4 inches of snow. a couple spots in the warning area could go a little higher. we have a coastal flood warning times of high tide we could see minor to moderate flooding up and down the bay and the back bays. today's high 38 degrees. we are getting well above freezing this afternoon. karen rogers that means any snow showers this afternoon will hopefully only produce wet roads. we'll want to be careful whenever it's snowing though and then later tonight snow showers and dipping temperatures could be more problematic. details coming up. >> in areas where we are below freezing because the roads have been salted and treated, we're finding it just melting so it's just a little damp right here on the schuylkill expressway. no big problem as we look live in king of prussia. this is the schuylkill at 202.
6:03 am
eastbound traffic headed towards gulph mills with no problems. the issue on the vine street expressway we've been fine on the highways right here but eighth street at race street, that's where we've got malfunctioning traffic lights so near that area you're seeing a problem currently just a little damp on the vine with no big problems rider here in center city. how about i-95ly? starting to slow down just a little bit. we're looking live approaching cottman and you see that southbound traffic headed towards center city andy an easy 14 minute ride northbound and southbound. no major issues on i-95. the roads have been mostly wet. even the bridges. we're in the seeing anyone slip or slide but nonetheless we have 35 miles an hour speed restrictions in place for most of the area bridges, the betsy ross, the ben franklin, the commodore barry. in new jersey the one issue lab flooding and it's still a problem here in logan township with 130 both ways south of 322, we've got one lane blocked there because of the flooding, matt and tam. >> thank you, karen. let's head on out to erin o'hearn. she's live in roxborough with more on the current conditions outside. good morning, erin. >> reporter: good morning, tam. let's show you what you can expect when you head out this morning.
6:04 am
take a look at the ground the just a dusting in the overnight hours. but let's head over to the roads because right now everything is moving just fine. in fact, the roads aren't even wet. but that is expected to change as we led throughout the day. let's take a look at some video of penndot preparing 300 plows are out monitoring road conditions with 106 tons of salt on hand. they are prepping the roads for the snowfall that is expected to last throughout the day. now, it is important to note that philadelphia trash and recycling has been canceled today. just ahead of this storm. so residents are going to have to hold off until next tuesday to put all that garbage out. but again, there's no snow emergency so parking is normal. roads are dry right now but take it easy this afternoon once that snow starts coming down and we'll certainly keep you updated on the road conditions in roxborough throughout the morning. for now we're live in roxborough, erin o'hearn channel6 "action news." back to you. >> thanks erin. "action news" reporter katherine scott is live in ocean city new jersey.
6:05 am
some jersey shore communities are concerned about coastal flooding this morning. >> reporter: that's right, flooding is a concern as well as the snow later on today. right now there's no snow yet. we're just seeing light rain here in ocean city. and we're not seeing any flooding where we are, either. we're taking a look at west seventh street right now. it's right near the bay and this is an area that's prone to flooding. we are keeping an eye out for it as it gets closer to high tide but right now all seems well here on west seventh street. let's go to video last night from ocean city where you can see that they had some minor street flooding and it is expected to get worse as the day goes on. there are winter storm and coastal flood warnings in effect for areas of new jersey and delaware so people want to be prepared for the rising water levels. high tide is between 7:30 and 8:30 this morning. waves could get as high as 14 feet. and we could see significant beach erosion. street flooding is expected to be widespread. so, as always, don't drive
6:06 am
through flood water flood water. you never know what's under the flood waters. use caution in the snow when it comes later. right now here again we're just seeing a light rain but we could get snow later on today. visibility will deteriorate when the snow is heavier. we could see some heavy wind gusts and you do want to check for school delays and closings. there's only a handful right now but we do know schools in wildwood city school district are already closed today. so, again, we're taking a look out for flooding in this area, widespread street flooding expected at the shore today. we're live in ocean city, katherine scott channel6 "action news." >> thanks katherine. with flooding and snow in the forecast keep 6abc.com/weather saved to your favorites on all your devices. rely on the power of storm tracker6 live double scan radar to know when and where the heaviest rain or snow is headed. >> it is now 6:06. let's get an update on where things stand with the markets and the economy. maribel aber is live at the nasdaq if times square and she's starting with stocks. good morning, maribel. >> reporter: good morning,
6:07 am
tam. stocks recovered a bit yesterday but still finished lower thanks to a fresh drop in oil and then jitters over the state of the global economy. and overnight in tokyo the nikkei index plunged 5 percent on worries over global growth. as for the u.s. right now futures are pointing to a lower open. we've got a report on whole sale inventories due out later today. gas is getting close to a dollar a gallon in some parts of the country. gas stations in at least eight states are selling it fortress than $1.25 a gallon. in oklahoma city you can find it for $1.11 a gallon. texas, missouri and ohio also have low prices according to gas buddy.com. in philadelphia the low is $1.72 a gallon. that's the latest in business news from here. back over to you matt and tam. >> thanks so much maribel. see you later. >> so, we are off to a little bit of a snowy start. we had a couple of light snow showers overnight, have your low impact. as you take a look at storm tracker6 live double scan right now there's a little bit more coming up from the south and as we go in tighter these may be a little bit more pronounced with in brighter shade of white showing up near salem and the top of the
6:08 am
delaware bay and out to the west of oxford there's another cell that looks even better than some of the stuff that came through overnight. the overnight snow showers really only dropped about a coating to maybe a quarter inch in much of the region. these may put down a little bit more. if you're driving around this morning up until about 9 o'clock in and around the i-95 corridor and points north and you see some of this, you really want to slow it down. even down into the heart of south jersey because it's cold enough on the roads where untreated surfaces could start to get slick and start to give you problems. but that's where the action is right now pushing up toward wilmington and you want to slow it down if you encounter snow shower this morning. as we take a look outside, we have the commodore barry bridge in chester just above all of that approaching snow. still dry but on the cold side and a little bit breezy out there, too. temperature right now in philadelphia is 32 degrees. the freezing mark. winds have picked up to 12 miles per hour out of the east. that's giving you a wind chill of 23 degrees. and again some snow showers starting to creep up from the
6:09 am
south. future tracker6 shows that you between now and 9:00 some of those snow showers will probably stay mainly to the south, but again in these areas close to wilmington where we are close to the freezing mark you do want to slow it down. now as we get into the afternoon, 3 o'clock we're going to see numbers jump up into the mid to upper 30's across most of the region so yes there could be some more snow showers but all likelihood most of them are going to produce mainly wet roads during the day time period. the problem may become after about 6 o'clock or so where those numbers start to dip again, we still have some snow showers wrapping threw up to tho 11 o'clock. you plight see freeze-up on untreated surfaces. main roads probably able to lathe this fairly well because each of these snow showers aren't individually delivering all that much snow. by the way, the winter storm advisory expires at 6:00 in the morning but our latest model runs show that the snow is over well before that. tomorrow morning's commute may be a little bit slippery in places where it got slippery early in the overnight hours but not a lot of active snow tomorrow morning for the commute.
6:10 am
expected snow totals about two to 4 inches in the center portion of the region, one to two on the outside. less down at the shore where rain mixes in. there is a concern out in chester county, lancaster county and perhaps delaware county that some areas go a little higher and in fact there's a winter storm warning still in effect in these cases, all of these expire in the overnight hours and they're done by tomorrow morning's commute. your day planner. here are those numbers. 31 degrees still below freezing in philadelphia by 8 o'clock. but up above freezing by 10 o'clock and during the afternoon snow showers fairly light impact i think with the high temperature getting well above freezing, 38 is your high at 3 o'clock. high temperatures across the region will all get above freezing. 36 in allentown, 36 in trenton this afternoon, 39 in wilmington, and 42 in cape may, new jersey. your exclusive accuweather 7-day, today's high is 38 degrees. we have periods of off and on snow shower activity through the day. totaling about two to 4 inches by the time it all wraps up late tonight or early in the overnight hours. then breezy with some flurries in the morning on wednesday but sun returning during the day and back up to 40. then an arctic boundary starts

police officers. you see some of what's going on here. it happened early sunday morning at the recess lounge in olde city. now this new video came from a viewer who sent it through join the action at 6abc.com. when you see news happening you can record it and e-mail it to us or use #join the action. mccoy's agent did not offer any comment when we asked. >> all right. let's talk about our lingering snow all day long. >> yeah, it's going to be off and on probably light snow showers a lot of time but some moderate snow is possible and storm tracker6 live double scan shows you there's a little bit of that now reemerging from the south and west. we had one round to came through overnight. didn't do much. about a coating in a lot of spots. some of you might have gotten a quarter inch are zero so. now we have a second round coming in and this is in areas around wilmington. right now a lot of dark gray in through here and so this is again fairly light snow. this light blue over the delaware bay and towards salem might be doing a little bit more and there's also some pretty bright stuff out to the west of us in lancaster county
6:39 am
that might wind up in berks county later on if it can make it that far north. farther south we go and you can seal that the closer you are to the coast the better chances you have some mixing. it's all rain down over the delaware bay and in parts of the shore areas we're seeing a little bit of that as well and katherine scott lab down there n there talking about how it's spritzing. northern suburbs not a whole lot. earlier we did get a sweep of snow. didn't do much and hopefully this won't do a lot either. if you're caught underneath this though temperatures are down around the freezing mark in wilmington and some parts of south jersey and certainly points north. so you want to slow down especially on roads that weren't pretreater or brined. as we look outside we've got cloudy skies overwilmington, sort of waiting for that snow to really get kicking down there. it's been fairly light so far. and it's cold across the region this morning as i mentioned and a little bit breezy so you want to bundle up even if you're not really worried about the snow all
6:40 am
that much. 32 degrees in philadelphia, 33 in wilmington where we're starting to see some flakes fly again. 29 in trenton currently and below 30 in allentown. 30 on the nose in reading and lancaster. down in millville 33 close to their freezing mark and that means areas around here may also be hovering close to freezing so slow it down if you see the snow in any of those cold spots for the next couple hours. between now and 9 o'clock the snow centered down to the south and west of us. might be that way by noon and of course by noon we'll see those numbers come up above freezing. you can see how we're changing over to rain in south jersey and even throw it's still snow in new castle county and delaware and philadelphia and beyond during afternoon temperatures will be above freezing so down at the surface this will probably act like wet snow that kind of melts as it hits the roads as we get up to 6:00, 6:30 temperatures getting closer to freezing and for the rest of the evening anything that does manage top continue to come through could stick to road surface and nontreated
6:41 am
secondaries. the winter weather advisory that's in effect expires at 6:00 in the morning as of right now but the bulk of the snow will be over before then. the gfs has bumped up to almost 3-inches. a lot of other models are down playing this. i think the best we get is probably about two to 4 inches across the center region and one to two up north and around the shore. in fact right down at the coast it's probably more like a half an inch because so much rain will be mixing in. in lancaster county delaware county maybe some areas go higher. i'll post 4-inches plus. that's not everywhere in in zone bats just some bullet points in that area might go higher. cloudy, breezy, periods of snow. a half inch here, a half inch there. maybe this evening a little hour pronounced snow. 36 degrees in the lehigh valley. down at the shore we're going for a high of 40. tidal flooding is an issue with this morning's high tide. otherwise it's cloudy and breezy with some rain mainly
6:42 am
at the shore and your exclusive accuweather 7-day shows a high in philadelphia, 38 degrees today. again periods of snow off and on. it won't be snowing all the time. it doesn't end until after midnight tonight and by then we get that general two to four on the ground although some of it may have melted during the afternoon as we get that temperature above freezing. so, maybe you don't actually see the full 4-inches on the grass. we'll see. breezy with sun on wednesday 40. an arctic boundary approaches and we get to 31 on thursday with a snow shower around. friday down to 29 with a late snow shower or flurry possible. and then for the weekend, oh, my, 24 is the high on saturday. 22 on valentine's day sunday. overnight lows will be in the single digits. we haven't seen a lot of that this winter. saw a lot of that last winter. but it does look like arctic air this weekend. >> thanks. happy valentine's day. it's 6:42. it's first and goal for a temple stadium proposal. we'll tell you about the next step the trustees are taking and why the off campus community is so against it.

expressway as far as the snow it's not impacting the schuylkill. a little bit of coating overnight and the schuylkill was a little bit damp. starting to dry out here at montgomery drive and traffic a little slow eastbound from montgomery to girard. on the big picture speeds mostly in the 30's other schuylkill and the 20's on i-95 southbound near girard. don't forget about the malfunctioning traffic light there and that's in center city with eighth street at race. so look for that to be a bit an issue. we have an accident in cheltenham in montgomery on greenwood avenue. and in west windsor mercer county route one southbound at washington road we've got an accident an fuel spill. and it's out there blocking two lanes. that could cause you some problems out there. we've been talking about flooding in south jersey and this is still an issue in logan township. we've got one lane blocked here route 130 both ways and that's just south of 322. i want to pull in storm tracker six live double scan where we're dry in philadelphia. you can see some of the snow showers, they're building up from the south and west and whip double scan we can show you exactly where that's hitting you. you see the movement that of pulling up to the north now. if you're in delaware near

6:48 am
these roadways were taken care of by deldot overnight through brining and salt operations. we have seen a number of plows standing by, deldot saying they didn't get the amount of snow they thought they would overnight but they do still have a lot of slushy conditions in different areas so they are seeing a lot in central delaware, not a lot but they are seeing some snow in central delaware. now we're starting to see some of the flurries here. we're also seeing a number of people with their cars covered, with their roofs covered and snow coming from different areas. they're asking that you definitely try to just sweep that off. just to give you a look real quick we have powdery snow, beautiful snow so hopefully the snow that's falling now will look mr. like this. live in fairfax, an flee mccorm make channel6 "action news. >> 6:48 now. david is keeping an eye on the storm system that is sta far frm done with us. >> snow coming in new castle, flurries in philadelphia, it's cold with temperatures down around freezing so dress the kids warming. this afternoon they'll still want to be bundled. we'll get above freezing but it will be windy and chilly.

welsh road. watch for this accident, 309 southbound at welsh road. astor street at marshall street so look for that one. in newark we're hearing this is serious with people injured here on the scene on old baltimore pike at salem church road dave. >> newark is one of those places where we are starting to see the snow reemerge too karen. we did have snow showers overnight. they didn't put much snow down on the ground but there could be on nontreated surfaces some icy buildups here or there. main roads looking okay for the most part. now we have the second batch of snow coming in and you can see how it is coming through wilmington pushing up now into parts of chester county and delaware county, not real heavy here but again with temperatures down around the freezing mark we could conceivably see a freeze-up there on roads that weren't pretreated. there's another batch of even better slow but it's out in lancaster county at this point. as we roll through the morning 32 degrees by 9 o'clock so up until 9 o'clock in the i-95 corridor the freeze-up still possible.
