12:27 pm
will be light snow and more importantly freezing rain and a little bit of freezing drizzle can give you problems on sidewalks and roadways, once we get later into the overnight hours, warm air surges to the north and we wind up changing effect into rain and the winter weather advisory from 6:00 into past midnight up into the lehigh valley. and there is that possibility, if we happen to get precipitation even if it's light there could be icing. i think the threat of that goes by the way side at 10:00 in quakertown and pottstown and probably reading, the probably north are you in through here the longer it may take and could be after midnight, in the poconos before things improve. mostly cloudy and the icing possibility at night and a high of 37 that is later on this evening. i'll show you a model i designed just for allentown, you see how temperatures at 6:00, 8:00 and pushing toward 10:00 are not that far above freezing and
12:28 pm
because the air temperature get as above 36 doesn't mean the surface temperature will immediately react to that, if you see rain on the windshield, slow it down in case there is a freeze up. philadelphia 38 and a spotty flurry and snow shower around this afternoon. no icing in philadelphia tonight though. it will be too warm for that. 38 in philadelphia, and the issues up north and west with icing in the evening and nighttime hours. tomorrow 51 and thursday is the pick of the week getting the high up to 60 degree, that is going to be nice and friday 53 and temperatures falling and a couple of showers and back to business on saturday brisk and cold and 38 and a chance of precipitation into sunday morning. mlk day looks damp too. >> thank you david.
