today, for sure. but this is going to be one of those systems that lingers. it won't leave us alone, because it is going to hit a roadblock, not have chance to really move on out. so the brunt is with us, as we speak. pretty obvious, right? heavy rain falling through the garden state, mixing taking place back through the lehigh vale, as well as lancaster, berks county where you may have the slick travel this morning. but, don't, you know, necessarily brush off the fact that you've got just rain, in jersey, because you're getting soaked down that way. so, ponding on roadways, slick travel, gusty winds to reduce your visibility, i mean, you have the whole mixed bag going on out there. >> winter weather advisories taking up central sliver of the delaware valley again where we are beginning to see mixing take place, so you might see few wet snowflakes, little sleet perhaps rain that freezes on contact.
my advice to you, if you sit in the purple zone, traveling through it, keep an eye on the thermometer reading in your carp, as you travel. that will gave you a good gauge what the condition is like, where you are, and whether you need to maybe slow down. >> so coming up on the 32 degrees mark it, could turn little slick. coastal flood advisories, as well as warnings, now the other story going out toward coastal delaware, new jersey, every shore town is include here. we have the gusty winds coming in on shore, and it is not only along with the wind and the high tide coming in, right around 9:00 to 9:30, but also this, this moisture, when talking one to two to maybe even 3 inches every rain, by the time this is all said and done, that will lead to flooding for sure. and that also is a concern even away from the shore point, and headed further inland. here is a look at just couple of choice locations, in the current wind gust being reported in the live neighborhood network, you get the idea. very blustery outside. not necessarily super super
cold outside, and that would be a different story with the precipitation, certainly, but it is definitely one of those raw days. here is a look at the timing with this storm, the heaviest comes here, mainly now, through the rest of the morning, later this afternoon, we may actually catch bit of a break, and then tonight we still have lingering showers to deal with. and as we mention, this looks like it may stick around for a little bit of time over the next few days in fact. jess? >> slick travel definitely the way to go, we know we have the incidents to prove that so far this morning. at 5:02, checking out thanks are doing on 95. they are not doing that great. so, now, we had all lanes open, then closed, open again, closed. seems to be now that we do have activity on the scene here 95 southbound approaching the betsy ross bridge here with only one lane squeezing on by. fortunately that's actually the only good news i have for this incident, also police activity pushed over to the left-hand side, trying to get that cleaned up and out of the way. hopefully that will be done in the next up he will every minutes or so.
at least lane squeezing on pipe for now. we can expect some delays so far. over on the ben franklin bridge, philly side, good news, everything real shiny. all lit up here. but no real volume on the bridge headed into the city. so currently everything moving along great, there as well. getting report of icy conditions out in the lehigh vale, just want you to use some caution. northeast extension, 78, and route 22. now, still on stand by for opening, supposed to open about 5:00 a.m., the burlington bristol bridge. meantime avoid any delays, just take the talcony-palmyra bridge. >> roadway may start looking more like rivers as the storm passes through.
