treated with salt brine yesterday. we brought the in nearly 200 trucks overnight. we have them ledded with salt. they are out the patrolling putting down salt. as traffic starts to move around as people, make their way out to get to work and school or where ever they are going. >> now charlie, this isn't a plowable snow. i saw trucks out there i didn't see the plows down. you are putting salt down after the brine that went down yesterday. >> we do not expect this to be a plowable snowstorm, just more salt intensive. so we got 106,000 tons of salt, we have plenty on hand to put down. a as the snow starts to come down, and covers the roadway, motorist come in, start working the salt into the snow, it might be slick, people need to take their time, and you know, just leave a little extra time to get where they are going. >> do you think this will be a problem for evening rush hour? obviously crews are out there
6:20 am
this morning for the morning rush hour what about lunchtime and that friday night commute home. >> if the day goes on we expect temperatures to rise above freezing so whatever is happening and laying on the roadway we expect to melt throughout the day and clear off the roadways, so we will have our crews on during the day to day and we will work through the evening rush to make sure that everybody has a safe trip home. >> you got it, charlie, thanks for checking in. thanks to the penndot crews out there keeping us safe during the rush hour. mike and alex, back over to you. there is snow business like snow business. >> yes it is coming down all over, we have you you covered, we will be right back. >> 6:20.

6:41 am
let's get out to the roving snowmobile, with jen fred. we are heading out of town, like the vine street, a little bit other areas, it looks better. i think now obviously cars are
6:42 am
going slower and as you you can see good news is as the snow continues to fall, can you hear me. that is what you are seeing in the suburbs. the most of the suburbs, are either, not on the delay or just a two hour delay, because, you can see, the blacktop. >> you can see we are stuck in traffic, this is the schuylkill, right around the city avenue area and we are going westbound for away from the city. >> well, that is fantastic, just keep that shot up, we will take you throughout the morning, thanks for that nice shot. >> you mentioned weather delays, check on fox 29.com to get delays, and particularly at the bottom of the screen. >> i just had a friend text me from lower merion schools on a two hour delay, you know, typical of the area.
6:43 am
>> she says, start snowing an hour ago in south jersey and roads are like ice, slid down driveways, and, so that tweet came in about an hour ago so that is just one example, don't get over confident, it is just wet out there some places are slippery as we look, we see a dry area, moving into new castle will county delaware, in the next couple of moments but, heavy ban of snow moving in, for burlington county, and shore points. you can see, northeast philadelphia, really getting slammed with the heavy wet the snow that piles up quickly. it is lighter as you get toward the pocono mountains there. not much natural snow but colder temperatures over the weekend. heavy snow, is falling in atlantic county, cumberland and, will start to dry out
6:44 am
from west to east during the 9:00 o'clock hour, and still snowing along the shore, that is why we will expect higher snowfall amounts there. by noon, it will take up half the day, morning half, the rest of the the day, and we will see sunshine rolling in from west to east, same direction that we had, with the snow. this is morning event only, just a timing is pretty lousy. outside at fourth and market, to experience it firsthand, is dave warren, so. >> heavy wet flakes. it is 50 or 60 degrees yesterday ape if the snow is heavy snuff, it the is still
6:45 am
quickly accumulating on paved surfaces. the that is the big story this morning. here on market street, things are moving fine. main road are treated. they are fine. lets check out these temperatures and show you exactly what is happening, here. right about freezing or slightly above, that is what we have right now. even though the snow, just heavy for a brief period of time, millville that is where we will get that coating there and quickly accumulates. half mile visibility, in millville, two in philadelphia, three in pottstown, up to ten, in reading, allentown and mount pocono. it looks like things are winding down there. seven day forecast, with a nice even to the day to day, road will quickly improve once that sun comes out. forty-five tomorrow, 50 a bit warmer on sunday. now we are watching the chance for maybe some more snow as the next storm develops monday into tuesday, we will keep an
6:46 am
eye on that. sun returns. temperatures 35 degrees there next thursday. here road are fine but there is problems elsewhere. lets get to bob kelly. >> 6:47. they are scrolling across the bottom of the screen there. westbound on the schuylkill expressway, heading out of the town jammed up from the boulevard all the way out to belmont. just take your time, it will take licensing tore get there today then it did yesterday, and road conditions are changing. this is probably worse part. stepping out of the front door. road are wet the but getting to the major or ease you will go more snow you will encounter. here's the new jersey turnpike, and, burlington mount holly. and poor visibility here, on the vine street expressway. head heights off the schuylkill and downtown. wet road on the the 42 freeway. majors are wet.
6:47 am
secondary roads an inside streets that you have to watch out before you even get to the major roadways and new jersey turnpike, speed restrictions are in play from exit one to exit number 12, we have an accident in the middle north bound on the turnpike right here near exit number six for the philadelphia interchange and as that shotty showed you of the the snow in mount holly, is there a jackknife tractor trailer at that interchange, it is 295, the off ramp to mount holly willingboro and a accident with the fuel spill in newtown square at ellis avenue and northbound side of the freeway, watch for a crash near the black horse pike. all bridges have speed restrictionness play, because of the weather this morning, down to 35, and we're expecting some arrival and departure delays at the airport. lets get the skinny from the airport with diane calling us from philly international, diane, good morning. >> good morning, bob, how are you. >> good. so give us details on what exactly is going on there at philly international, for some will folks that are maybe
6:48 am
