meteorologist, david murphy back with the accuweather forecast. and the peanut snow this morning. snoopy snow. >> i'm not sure that is a meteorological definition. but it was falling from so low. all the radars were overshooting it a bit and some people were seeing light snow and not showing up on the apps or radar or phones. we have a little bit of snow to the north and west of philadelphia as we take a closer look this is when, we didn't quite get the closer look. in any event we have a little bit to the north and west in philadelphia. but it is not right now, not, pushing into the immediate region. it's possible out in reading and places like that you see it this afternoon but you'll probably
12:24 pm
have to wait until later tonight. live at cape may, sun is a breaking through we have clouds mixing with sunny breaks. 38 degrees and winds are calm. and no windchills to talk about. up above freezing and we'll add a few more to the temperatures this afternoon. in reading and allentown you are cooler and i expect the numbers to bump up a bit over the next couple of hours. if you see precipitation it's probably light and mixed precipitation. and wait until after dark. in all likelihood for this to be a bigger issue. in the northern and western suburbs you happen to see something popping up you want to slow it down and take it slow and temperatures are closer to the freezing mark. in terms of this snow it looks like between now and 6:00 and beyond. the main body is having a hard time making it down into allentown and reading. and if you see something it's probably mix precip, we get past
12:25 pm
11:00 and it's trying to make the push to the south and maybe it makes it this evening. if it doesn't don't worry will t will. it could start as rain in philadelphia but we will be snowing and the rest of us get a batch of rain in the morning commute and rain changing over to snow. and this is where the accumulation will come and it looks to get out of here and some revisitation of snow down the coast for a brief period and that shouldn't add a lot of additional accumulation. for the timing, this afternoon and this evening mainly dry, if you see anything it will be northern and west a mix in the afternoon and a bit of snow here and there this evening. overnight as you saw is when we anticipate the main body of snow to move in down through the northern and western suburbs and across i-95 through the early morning commute. wednesday morning a snowy commute for most of it, fairly light precipitation and enough
12:26 pm
to make roads slippery and down the shore a better chance of mixed precipitation, a coating to an inch looks likely down south. 1 to 2 inches in and around the i-95 corridor and up north 2 to 4 is more likely. most of the model are agreeing it gets heavier toward the poconos, new model runs for philadelphia are showing a lot of the projects less than an inch in philadelphia. definitely more up north. today an accuweather alert, for later tonight and overnight. 42 is the high. and we'll get snow at night. wednesday morning snow and slippery morning commute and very likely for areas close to 95 on up into the northern and western suburbs, and we dry out and get sun and tomorrow a high of 35.
12:27 pm
then up to 37 on thursday, sunny and brisk and 43 on friday as we get on the other side of the cold snap and up close to 50 on saturday. and sunday for the eagles contest looking good and high of 54 and we take out the mention of an evening shower and 48 degrees for the kickoff for the eagles, and a great day to tailgate and then go and enjoy a super bowl clinching win. >> that is it. >> 6:30ish. right around there yes. >> we'll have more when "action news" comes right back.
