the poconos. it will be beautiful day to go skiing tomorrow afternoon. temperatures will be warming up. we do have an advisory north and west of philadelphia where you see the purple for couple of inches of snow. but that pink, that is the warning area in the poconos. four to 6-inches. six being significant but we're used to that in the pocono mountains take it slow tomorrow. we're watching ultimate doppler and we're watching all of this move toward the southeast. some light snow moving toward philadelphia but it's encountering some warmer air. that's why we're seeing a little green on the screen. so rain micking in with snow it's a wet snow because temperatures are at or above freezing. originally we thought this coastal low would feed into this moisture but it look like it's going to stay little bit farther offshore as i watch the radar so i have lowered the ams in south jersey because of the warmth and because of the lack of that interaction. right now 27 in the poconos. 32 in allentown. 39 in philadelphia. that will be a wet sloppy snow and it does finally accumulate
on the grassy surfaces. millville 37 degrees much it's pretty warm there. as we go hour by hour you can see where the snow will be accumulating the lehigh valley and poconos that's where the most will be falling. to the north and west of philadelphia, an inch or two possible. and then the cold air will be coming in. still at 4am33 in philadelphia. so that's a wet snow. mainly on the grass. rain in atlantic city, rain in toms river. rain in wildwood. even a wintry mix in millville. so not much of an accumulation there it also sweeps off the coast. 7:00 a.m. still seeing some snow a little bit of a snow shower in millville and in dover. then it it's out of here by the end of the day before sunset there will be some sunshine a pretty sunset end then we'll just be seeing some colder temperatures in the 20's tomorrow night. snow amounts. the poconos four to six. lehigh val toll to four. norristown, lower makefield, into trenton one to two even philadelphia i'm thinking an inch or less of a slushy accumulation. less than an inch in south jersey and central delaware.
nothing from dover south. millville galloway estelle hasn't nor, ocean city, brigantine, wildwood i don't think you'll see anything more than rain mixing with wet snowflakes that's just about it. last time you got it all. this time not much of anything. overnight 31 in philadelphia. 21 in the poconos. 27 in wilmington. 28 in dover. tomorrow the morning rain and wet snow gives way to some mostly cloudy skies. and then clearing it out. the temperature 32. but the wind will be gusting to 20 so it's not going to be all that comfortable on your seven day forecast better for thursday with less win. friday looks great mostly sunny and seasonal. saturday if you're really going to be tailgating and doing it like a day early a nice day. 50. sunday looks great for the birds by kick off in the 40s. and monday a chance of a shower 55? yes. 55. get the clubs ready by tuesday. sunny again the temperature 50 degrees. take it slow tomorrow especially north and west of the city. >> all right. good advice, kathy. thanks kristen what's coming up in sports?
♪ it's impossible to ignore how excited eagles fans are for this sunday. philadelphia is one win away from a super bowl. but if you want watch high scoring games eagles/vikings won't be that. in fact i'm pretty sure it will be defensive slug fest. here's why. numbers don't lie. the vikings number one in total defense points per game and third down conversion. the eagles are no slouch themseles though case in point the falcons game. also number one rush defense and tied for first on fourth down conversion. a lot of stats coming your way. basic words eagles offensive coordinator frank reich said today the vikings quote i think they have the best defense we faced all year. pretty simple. to echo that i really think each defensive unit is the biggest strength for each team.
nothing against case keenum and nick foles and offenses but defense wins championships. i have a feeling which ever defense plays best on sunday will be playing again in super bowl 52. iain. >> all right, kristen thanks. how about this. bright flash of light in the sky in detroit right now going on social media saying they saw a meteor. the national weather service says they did get a lot of reports from people seeing a flash then allowed boom and they can confirm that it was not thunder or lightning but most likely a meteor. >> cool. >> that's really flashes looks like a rocket they call eight fire ball. >> wow. we call that snow. look at blue mountain poconos mountain camera. they're getting most of it. >> four to sexisms where we have the wint storm warning. most of the snow north and west of the city. >> tune into good day at 4am for the latest. th
