suburbs, lehigh valley, reading, berks county and heading towards poconos. this is where we expect hazardous travel, dangerous travel, especially late tomorrow morning and into the afternoon. for safe travel we suggested traveling before 7:00 o'clock tomorrow morning. it will be mainly rain, even through the northeast extension, possibly some snow in the poconos and light breeze. or if you want to wait go after 8:00 o'clock, snow will be over ape roads should be improving even on 295 as you head north or even if you are going to be heading to the west/northwest. here is our storm system as it develops and moves towards the the northeast. we are talking about our first winter storm. i have added the roads here because this is what the weather map will look like tomorrow morning before 7:00 a.m. you can see mainly rain. then by 7:00 snow moves in, between 10:00 and noon it changes over to snow in philadelphia. the heavier rain by 2:00. we will have a dry slot in there and snow through the afternoon but 8:00 o'clock you can see most of the area are

of 40 degrees. rain begins between 4:00 and 7:00 a.m. from the south to the north. by the afternoon we have changing of snow and snowing pretty well, high temperature 40 but falling in the afternoon into the 30's. around freezing. thanksgiving will be chilly, and it will be breezy, temperature 41. black friday is always a usually sunny and cold and this year will be no different that some areas will be seeing some snow. our first snowstorm of the season, coiled have turned out to be worse but the warmer temperatures will help us. our coverage continues with meteorologist justin drabick here to explain why that is at the art museum, hi justin. >> hi kathy, that is right. typically with these coastal storms thinks a good set up, off shore, we will get cold air, see a decent amount of snow. if this was a couple weeks later in the cold season this could be a different outcome here in philadelphia but it is hard to believe we're talking about snow tomorrow. such a nice night. we are live at the a art museum checking out they are setting up for the parade
thanksgiving day a lot of people enjoying the nice evening. if you need to get errand done do it tonight. pretty nice night here, even some clearing skies over the region but different story tomorrow. it will be all about temperatures and elevations so lets go to the graphic and try to break this down. recent warm temperatures will help inhibit snow accumulations in the city. we had highs yesterday in the 70's, today in the 50's and still in 50's outside right now. temperatures tomorrow around the city should stay above freezing for much of the day. so that is why we will see this precipitation start as rain. eventually yes we will see that change over but still ground temperatures, road temperatures pretty much warm enough but if it does come down hard enough we have to watch those untreated surface that he is could get slick but best shot to sees any a accumulations will be on the non-paved surfaces. snow will be falling during the daylight. we have sunlight breaking through and this could be a wet snow. we will see snow ratio to liquid ten to one. 10-inch toss every inch of liquid.
tomorrow six to one. it will be that heavy wet snow that could melt good. so again it is all about elevation. back here live if you go up to a thousand feet, temperatures will be below freezing, but here in the city right on the ground we are just above freezing so we may have luck out with this storm. we will see the outcome. we are live from the art museum, nice night, different story tomorrow morning, more on the forecast coming up wh
