we have seen them. 25 degrees. where do we find that. well, bill layden find that in broomall this morning and he has a very good comment. adopt a fire hydrant, plus shovel every second counts in the fire so if you have fire hydrants anywhere near your property, shovel them out and also, your dog will appreciate that as well. but that is really good advice 31 degrees that is not bad, david dutch, his comment is the following. clocks changing, bird are chirping, signs of the highly anticipated spring. i know if you are anything like how i'm feeling it cannot get here soon enough in the 26 degrees temperature this morning and thinks what greg has to say for himself at this point. refreezing overnight produced slippery conditions from yesterday's melting. wise advice. some of these temperatures are below freezing, when this strong march sun. the lets walk over and see. we can. it is almost blinding. where are my shades when i need them. atlantic city, look at this
7:45 am
absolutely gorgeous start to the day. it is positioned perfectly, for a halo, it is a halo worthy day too because the temperatures will come up a at the shore at 50 degrees later on today and already above freezing. atlantic city inland at the airport even, 37 degrees. wildwood along the coast 37. millville 31. 28 degrees in philadelphia, 30 in allentown at this point. we have got fine weather conditions, over our area, clear skies a few clouds creeping down into philadelphia if you look closely you can see some of those, still clear skies to the the south and just some snow showers talk about sneaking trying to sneak over the the new york border right into pennsylvania so the poconos might get the a couple of flurries over that. we have high pressure building in for a little bit. temperatures warmer then yesterday, yesterday was 41 degrees today, probably 47 47 degrees. nice day, tomorrow, we're well into the 40's once again and partly sunny skies expected most of the time and then another weather system comes in here. it will be a milder one.
7:46 am
so any precipitation that we see on this tuesday time frame should be rain and that will be later in the day the way it looks right new but as that low pressure comes in here and comes up from the south we may be getting a little bit warmer air, could be 50 degrees on tuesday as well. so future weather we will take a look at this we have fine weather today and then overnight early this computer model keeps wanting to put a couple little spots of rain if your temperatures are below the the freezing mark be careful going north and west and assuming that actually does happen but it is always a good idea this time of the year when we have seen snow on the ground and ground a has been cold to pay attention if you see any precipitation. by tomorrow morning we will start with a few clouds but we will clear out and temperatures will get well in the 40's. the this is tuesday weather i was talking about, cloud first this rain start to come in, areas especially to the south to begin with. this ace look at 8:00 o'clock on tuesday night and we may be finding it as high as reading and then it moves on out of here. but maybe early wednesday
7:47 am
morning we will still continue with a couple rain showers. wednesday is supposed to be our warmest day, we have to have rain with it too? forty-seven in philadelphia today, shore 50. the poconos 38 degrees. probably not going to rain all day on wednesday, i'll show new in a second. 47 degrees today. not bad. still 3 degrees away from normal but we will handle that 35 degrees partly to mostly cloudy skies tonight and then as we take a look at this eyewitness weather seven day forecast, tomorrow we're in the 40's as well, tuesday we could be as high as 50 wednesday, might start with some of the rain showers that are lingering from tuesday afternoon and evening on, then that should get out, we should be looking at better conditions as we hit wednesday afternoon into the 50's and then thursday marks 48 degrees. friday and saturday we will have a couple rain showers. we will continue to monitor that one nicole. 7:47. lets check on the road and highways with pat winters in the cbs-3 traffic center good
