3:48 am
froze and ice over node on to the busy road. the ice affecting both sides of the river in trenton, new jersey and bucks county pennsylvania in response the national weather service had issued a flood warning running through tonight. so let's head out live to reading live look at our friends in berks county we got snow of course on the way. meteorologist scott williams is here with your forecast at 11:00. >> high there, iain f ice jams to more snow on the way. just got update in. right now, you can take a look at the current level there. just 19.07 feet. minor flooding still occurring at the delaware river at trenton so just be mindful of that because of the blockage with the frozen waters and all of that ice. as we look at ultimate doppler, a slow-moving system off to the west. look at the purple. wint weather advisories from sections of new england all the way in to south texas for our area it's the pocono mountains the lehigh valley, tuesday through wednesday. it's a slow-moving system. so here's the bottom line with
3:49 am
that timing. for tomorrow, most of the snow confine to the poconos sections of the lehigh valley during the day. it's not really until tomorrow evening through the mill of the day on wednesday that philadelphia will be looking at that accumulating snowfall. so it look like a couple of inches for the city. several inches once you move north and west. so we'll go hour by hour. look at the clock. through tomorrow afternoon even into tomorrow evening, most of that snow is still well to the north and west a few flurries might try and make it into the i-95 corridor. but once again the heaviest of the snow holds off until tomorrow night overnight into your wednesday morning. so i think the highest impact will be for that wednesday morning commute. temperatures will be cold enough for that snow. so about 2-inches a little more along the i-95 corridor. maybe an inch, inch and a half into sections of south jersey. the bulls eye the pocono mountains likely receiving up to s inches of snow. about three to 5-inches for the
3:50 am
lehigh valley. temperatures right now, mid up to per 20s out there. so most locations below freezing right now the exception wildwood checking in at 33 degrees. so temperatures for tonight, mid to upper 20s. not as cold due to the cloud cover moving in. out ahead of that system but still pretty chilly as we look at that planner for tomorrow. 11am it's cloudy chilly 30 degrees. maybe a few flurries sneaking in to the afternoon far north and we have and light show north and west suburbs by 7:00 o'clock. but once again, i think the heaviest of that snow holds off until tomorrow night into your wednesday morning. temperatures tomorrow, 38 degrees, 32 on wednesday. 37 for thursday and then not as cold as we move toward friday. 41 degrees. upper 40s for saturday. and what about sunday? it look like tow hers will be in the low 50s. in fact, for tailgators comfortable temperatures in the 50s. partly cloudy kick off temperatures upper 40s and then
3:51 am
temperatures drop toward the end of the game into the low 40s. we'll keep you posted. back over to you. good all right, scott, thanks. kristen what's coming up in sports. >> i know everyone here in philadelphia is focused on the eagles right now but i need a minute to talk about the sixers. because markelle fultz officially needs to be ruled out

every two to three weeks i feel like i stand up and give update on markelle fultz. since objection that update has been see sawed between he's still sore, he's healthy, he's still not good to go. it's too much. after watching him shoot yesterday and hearing brett brown say he's lost his shot, it's time to pull the plug and just call him out for the season. back at washington, fultz shot above 50% from field goal rage. i watch him play this guy can go off now see for yourself. the fundamentals are just completely lost there. unless you want to tell me the mon stars from space jam stole
3:55 am
his shooting motion admit he needs to take this year off. i get why the sixers are so hess tan. they feel cursed. in the fast few years joel embiid, ben simmons now fultz. it's a tough pill to swallow look at simmons and embiid now without the pressure of a return date this season and some more physical therapy and maybe working with a shooting coach, he'll be back to draining threes next season. iain. >> let's hope so. kristen thanks. >> more accusation of sexual assault against team usa gymnastics dr. larry nassar. simone bile making her claim saying she was assaulted. 140 women accused of him of sexual assault he will plead guilty to of sexual counts of criminal sexual contact in november. he was already being sentenced to 60 years in prison. >> serena williams has penned an open letter on facebook after revealing her postpartum health problems. she writes although her experience wasn't great she's
