>> welcome back everyone, expect to go see overall just chilly, windy day. but you see waist going on over my shoulder here? we actually had the possibility for little bit of snow. now i don't want you to worry about accumulation, rather, this is lake effect picking up, and as a result, a couple of flurries or straight up snow shower or squawl is possible here today, which could lead to some poor
visibility, not everyone sees it, but if you fine yourself traveling in, that i want you to slow down, other issue, again, not terribly widespread. but because we've got temperatures near below freezing, any standing water from yesterday could leave behind some slick spot out there on the roads, on the sidewalks, on the train platforms, so be cautious out there. if it looks wet, i guarantee if you has frozen over at least for now, but eventually pat we rebound to what's still pretty chilly 40 degrees at best. >> driving in this morning, not too bad, though, but yes, if you see any of those spot, please slow down. no slow spots right here on the ben franklin bridge. looking great as you head from camden into philadelphia. no delays this morning. no delays on 95 at girard avenue. but, as the morning progresses, and the rush hour picks up, you know that the traffic will pick up here. mass transit, something to look forward to this weekend. regional rails, special late night service on new years eve. go to septa.org, these city buses and trolleys will be modified on new years day, the subways will have extra service on new years eve, same old super patco, new jersey
