the temperatures have dropped. lancaster, 34. 39 in philadelphia. millville, 39. wilmington, 37. here's the system we're watching. initially it looked as if both of these areas of low pressure would come together around cape hatteras around north carolina. that system would strengthen and unup the eastern seaboard and throw snow back into our area and from washington, d.c. to boston. looks like the two systems stay apart, one after the next, we're looking at a lighter system overall. temperatures are cold nuf -- enough to support a little bit of light snow. the bulk of this is out to sea. 2:00 p.m., cloudy conditions, light rain overspreads the area as the first of two systems marches through. it could mix with light snow later this evening. 8:30 you can see the model
hinting at light snow mixing in. overnight tonight it's mainly cloudy, first thing tomorrow morning we expect that precipitation to begin developing again. we'll see a mixture of light rain and snow across interior sections of south jersey and delaware. that will increase throughout the day. note the precipitation at this point doesn't appear to be all that heavy. if it is snowing the fact that it is snowing during the day, the fact you have a high sun angle will limit the amount of snow we see. it will be find to grassy surfaces to begin with. it's limited to what we see in the philadelphia area. to get a heavy march snowstorm you need to have everything come together just right. in january and february you're looking at five things. out of the of the five, three suggest snow, you can getaway with that. but in march if there's one thing that's not the camp here you'll not get the big storm. you'll see air that's cooler than january, theun is higher
now. there will be a mixture of light snow and rain, accumulations confined to grassy stur faces. temperatures -- surfaces temperatures well above freezing in the high 30s and low 40s. the snow will stick on the grass not on roads. we're expecting a sliver of one to two across the i-95 corridor. coating to an inch to the south and the north. this is subject to change as the track has been erratic over the last few days. most of the modeling is shifting this out to sea. we may take the one to two inches off the map later this evening. becoming cloudy today, afternoon showers are possible. 46 degrees is the high temperature. overnight tonight it's cloudy mixture of rain and wet snow very late closer to dawn, overnight lows 30 in the lehigh
valley, 33 for center city. the exclusive accuweather seven-day forecast, 46 degrees today mostly cloudy, a couple of rain showers for tomorrow expect a period of rain and wet snow, 39, minor grassy accumulations. and then we start warming it up nicely. 48 monday, 53 tuesday, 66 wednesday, 72 thursday, 73 on friday. thank you so much. just about 6:50. firefighters at one firehouse in gloucester county have a new truck in their arsenal it's ease to tell it apart from the others. because the new truck in west deptford is green courtesy of sunoco which donated the money for the truck as part of a settlement over the dispute over taxes at the nearby eagle refinery just as the second truck rolled out this week. we're coming right back.

lighter amounts of snow. here's philadelphia right here. earlier in the week, it looked like the low would hug the coast and throw back snow in the philadelphia area. we were forecasting 3 to 6 inches. what has happened over the last few days, the low continues to shift to the east. just that slight shift of 50 to 75 miles per hour is the difference between 3 to 6 inches of snow and perhaps a coating to an inch. the colder higher continues to bully the pattern and bump the low farther out to sea. this looks like nothing more than a nuisance event with a coating to an inch. a couple of could see an inch, otherwise it's a cloudy today and gray start to the weekend and chilly with showers developing with a high closer to 46 degrees. gray? thank you so much for theup date. are you watching this morning on the flat screen tv that's mounted on the wall. you can create a frame that gives your tv a high end, built-in look for next to
