>> boom. >> twenty-four hour temperature difference, it is like what? >> snow maybe? >> look that way. this sort of came out of left field to a degree. every modern run has gotten progressively further west, further west, and further west. that means, now it will be over us. >> here comes. >> yes, so a lot really does, of course, as we all well know, depends on the final track of things, how much cold air gets wrapped in, but right now being look as though mix of rain and snow out of this wednesday storm. we actually already have obviously some issues to deal with this morning. so let's break everything down for you here in a minute and 30 seconds if we k storm scan3, first and for most, your storm system, i mean there is warmfront lifting through right now, brought in heavy rain through the overnight, if you got woke up by that, that's why. and there will still be cold front that has to cross through there is warmfront has been incredibly strong, so the heavy rain came with it, and also going to really fuel that wind for us here, throughout the day. and nice well defined back edge to this, though, so we're eventually going to end up
with sunshine, by wednesday, however, this storm system looks like it will be a coastal storm system. so let me show you how the future snow amounts telling it, this is model, i want to make that perfectly clear, right out of the gate. but, it is looking as though if we see impressive snowfall, we would be talking about 4 inches or more, it would be from the i95 corridor on north and west with the heaviest amounts expected through, say, your allentown area, lehigh valley, pocono region. so that's generally where we would end up finding i think potential for something that would need to be shoveled away by thursday morning. but that said, it does appear that the holiday and "black friday" themselves are very, very quiet. in the meantime, back to the here and now, i told but 24 hour temperature difference, look how much warmer it is. it is 24, 25 degrees warmer than this same time yesterday. so really mild start. nice dose of spring for you with the spring showers basically, eventually some sun, it will be breezy, you will notice that, but the high hit 72, my goodness, would
officially break the record, guysment tonight clearing things out completely, drop down to 50 degrees, looking forward in the forecast for you here, very big swing on the thermometer by wednesday, the coastal storm is here, and as i mention, it is primarily looking like a mix of rain and some snow, ukee, back over to you. >> in sport, the eagles have very little time to reflect on their victory over the titans, not the cowboys on the horizon, birds have date in dallas this thanksgiving day. the titans delaney walk her 155 yards receiving yesterday, and the cowboys could see tightened coverage as a weakness in the eagles defense, probably looking at, that cowboys have tight ends, you may have heard of, all-pro jason whitton, can take over a game but can't do it, should be fun, this thursday, thanksgiving, 2014. >> now the boys have even shorter week than eagles, play the giants in north jersey last night, dallas down by four, with a minute-ten on the clock, and tony romo has all day to fundies brian in the end zone.
dallas beat the giant 31 to 28. go to eight and three, same as the eagle, here we go, get your popcorn ready. flyers on the road tonight playing the islanders, sixers in south philly play the portland trailblazer. to keep up with all of the sport team sign up for our text alerts, to 84816. have news sent straight to your cell phone. message, date a rates apply. >> and still ahead on "eyewitness news" this morning, filling the tank for your thanksgiving trip will cost you less this year. >> we like this kind of news. >> bring it. >> fantastic first t though here's what's coming up tonight on cbs-3.

that could potentially change this thursday, while americans are celebrating thanksgiving, opek leaders will be meeting in vienna, and they're considering cutting oil production. that would essentially boost prices, in recent months, the us is actually to produce a lot more oil domestically. we'll take it for now. helped bring the nationwide average way below the $3 mark, which means, holiday travel will be a lot less expense they have year. ukee, erika? >> jill, of course, we're just few days from thanksgiving. now for people who can't get enough of the turkey and stuffing, now they can also have it for dessert? as the little guy used to say, what you talking about, jill? >> love it. all right, an ice cream shop in portland has whipped up six new thanksgiving theme flavors. they include cranberry walnut stuffing and salted carmel thanksgiving turkey. that last flavor made with real turkey fat and fried
turkey, that shop will ship the ice cream for six a bucks. ukee, erika? >> i wonder how that works? that's pretty good. i'd girl it a whirl. >> stuffing and turkey, common. >> okay, order up some for all of us. >> all right. >> talk to you little later. coming up after a s short break, traffic and weather together. we do it on the 3's, we'll
291. you can access 95, just up ahead of ridley pack, that's going to be out it for quite some time, pretty early as of yet, luckily don't have a lot to talk about in ways of volume, but, over on the schuylkill expressway, ongoing construction here around conshohocken, westbound lanes, where headlights are, squeezing on by that to the left. you can even see some mist and everything from the roadways, as well. accident out northeast extension northbound at quakertown, a lot of incident to talk about, possibly weather-related, little slippery roadways, roosevelt boulevard at grant avenue accident pushed over to the right-hand side over there. we send it over to katie over in the weather, nice and warm today, katy? >> very, very warm day. there is a trade off. you will notice the win out there when you walk outside. you're also going to notice still very damp outside. little clammy i guess to start the day off would be a good descriptive word for t thankfully at least a back edge to this. meanwhile, we are flirting with record territory here today. these are the numbers to beat for your monday hi, if we're
going it actually break a record, we have to he can seed these values. but i think we have got real good shot to do did in a lot of spot here, a lot of the records in jeopardy. meanwhile storm scan3, see the bulk of the rain at this point actually moving out to see, while left with a lot of damp roads, leaves on the gown, do you have watch out for the slick spots, the bulk of the heavy rain has pretty much already messed with us. i think it bodes well for the timing in terms of this morning's rush. now look ahead to wednesday, that will be the next system on the map t does appear as though we're basically looking at mick of rain and snow, best shot for any kind of accumulating snow, from i95 on northwest. so, as temperatures drop off, we have got two systems to deal with here today, and then the one on wednesday, and by turkey day, and "black friday" it, does look like it is all out of here. just get to go your holiday destination might be little dicey. we'll keep you posted. back to you. >> thank you, here is a look at stories our sister station "kyw news radio" 1060 will be following for you. members of task force to study mandatory paid sick leave in
