11:17 am
february and first week of march certainly not very different. got kind of gloomy skies right now and it is going to stay looking like that overall for at least another 24 hours. we have first alert for later tonight and into tomorrow. first alert weather day. that rain changing to snow perhaps heavy rain to heavy snow in a very short period of time. snowy morning rush for much of the area. things are going to be very difficult to get around tomorrow morning. and possibly the biggest snowfall of the winter season in philadelphia our highest numbers so far is 4.8. and we have a good chance of being higher than that. we're higher in the temperature department than we have been lately. look at that 45 in dover and wildwood. even 37 in allentown. 39 in philly. so it is not nearly as cold as it has been. a winter storm warning, though for most of the area except for
11:18 am
lehigh valley and poconos because of what is coming overnight tonight and into tomorrow. we have patchy areas of mostly light rain now moving from west to east across the area. so it is just wet. some of that snow melting. but it is what is happening back to our west. there is extremely cold air to the north. and so you see a little bit of a changeover in ohio way bigger changeover back to the west near st. louis. this area is where the storm -- that's going to arrive right along the cold air and that's what's going to help change this from rain to snow. so we have different computer models. i'll show you a couple as we go through the hour here. this is one of them. you can see the patchy areas of rain through 5:00. the rain gets heavier this evening. and then melting more snow. and then we see that changeover to snow. that's heavy snow. darker blue. middle of the night, so you may go to bed, and it is raining,
11:19 am
and it is above freezing and you think, not much of a storm. and then you wake up in the morning, like where did all that white stuff come from? and it is coming down from the sky too. there it is. morning rush. now, it is possible it could already be over in the lehigh valley and poconos. so be a morning rush that is not too bad up there. but the philadelphia area close northern western suburbs and through delaware and south jersey, that's a snowy morning rush. then again this model is ending the snow by early afternoon. but other models keep it a little long and therefore higher snow totals. but it is certainly gone by tomorrow evening. now, in general, we have got the bull's eye and i think it is going to be perhaps just south of philadelphia itself. that means northern delaware and a lot of south jersey gets the
11:20 am
most. lower amounts as you head to the north. so just how much? 3 to 5 inches from the lehigh valley berks county which is not a huge storm for that area. and, again, it is going to be the first place to see it end. 4 to 7 inches from philadelphia up towards central bucks and upper montgomery doylestown norristown westchester, all of chester county in that 4 to 7 zone. trenton in the 4 to 7 zone. 6 to 9 in much of new castle county salem, gloucester the southern half of burlington camden county and down toward central delaware near dover, millville in the 6 to 9 category. then 4 to 7, little further south. that's still a pretty significant snowstorm for the southern areas. cape may county. and 3 to 5 inches far south. that is pretty significant too. so it is going to vary according to the area. and, of course we'll update it
11:21 am
throughout the day and night. temperatures in the 40s with periods of rain milder rain gets heavier this evening. changes to snow. and it is a snowy day tomorrow with falling temperatures. so even if the snow is not sticking immediately, it will eventually as it gets colder and colder. bitter cold on friday. and into saturday morning, but then really nice weekend, although we lose an hour of sleep. >> thank you, glenn. is your cell phone vulnerable to a hacker? some cell phone companies are scrambling to fix a possible security weakness. we'll tell you what it could mean for your personal data. and he's a young man who likes building things but he would love a forever family who can help get him a loving home. i'll introduce you to this week's "wednesday's child" coming up.

area, except for the lehigh valley and the poconos, which is going to get much less snow than the philadelphia area for example. we have some patchy areas of mainly light rain now moving from west to east. little more in delaware than elsewhere. but this is the area around st. louis on the cold side of this system going to arrive right along it. there is bitter cold air to the north, very warm air to the south. temperature contrast is extreme for this time of the year. and that's part of the reason that you can get a lot of snow totals. now, we showed you one computer model, half hour ago, this is a different one starting off with the rain this afternoon. this gives you a general area of where the rain and snow and mix is. at 8:00 still raining, but possibly starting to mix up toward berks county lehigh valley and go into snow. around midnight with a bit of
11:47 am
mixture all the way into the philadelphia area then. and that changed to snow so by 6:00 a.m. just about everybody is in snow as we have been saying. this model, slows everything down, and then the blues start getting darker to the south in delaware and south jersey. so this is suggesting some pretty heavy snowfall in central delaware, into south jersey and that's where i'm tending to agree with in general as you can see the heaviest snow just south of philadelphia northern delaware northern half of delaware, much of south jersey. still significant amounts in the darker blue. and then lesser amounts as you go farther to the north. so specifically 3 to 5, lehigh valley, possible it could be even less up toward the poconos. 4 to 7 inches across the southern half of bucks county. most of montgomery and chester, delaware county city of
11:48 am
philadelphia 4 to 7. and then 6 to 9 inches little farther to the south, northern delaware, extreme south jersey or south jersey extreme part gets 4 to 7. and then a little bit less even farther south than that. so?f we'll continue to update it throughout the afternoon. we have new computer data coming in every three hours basically. periods of rain milder highs in the low to mid-40s. then tonight it changes over to snow. tomorrow, it is snowy. may taper off in the afternoon, but temperatures going down as we go through the day. much colder in the afternoon rush than the morning rush tomorrow. and then bitter cold friday morning, 12 in philadelphia single digits in the suburbs. and then a bitter cold afternoon too. even saturday morning is bitter cold. then we start getting a little bit milder we got dry weather for a weekend for a change. we lose an hour's sleep as we spring forward with the clocks.

11:50 am
last year how many people you expect this year and how much money you'll raise and how the money will be used. >> absolutely. last year we had over 300 people in attendance. and we raised over $10,000. >> wow. >> just one night. >> one night. one night. and the teens come together and decide which charities to contribute to. and this year they decided on three charities. i believe they're the lupus foundation the edward taylor foundation and the more than me foundation. >> that's amazing. this organization is as i understand it it is youth led adult guided. would that be right? >> yes. >> tell me what you learned last year from putting this event together that will help make it a better event this year. >> last year the idea came from the past president, he came in he wanted to do this new creative idea. so with the leadership of the chair last year, nile hodges all the teams got together and we put so much work into it.
11:51 am
and after -- i think after we finished, we realized like how much work and how much organization it takes to run an event like this. i don't think any of the teams realized how much work it would take. but i think we were really happy with the way it turned out and it just showed how much success you can have when you really put work into it. >> i know this you'll probably get around to understanding it what you're doing now is going to help you throughout your life. because you're learning organizational skills things that will be terrific when you're running companies, maybe i'll work for you some day. >> i think so. >> once again, the second annual march madness fund-raiser for the montco chapter will take place on saturday at 6:30 at the greater plymouth community center. go to or the mobile app for more information. thank you for coming in. we'll be right back. stay with us.

11:56 am
suburbs, all chester county for example, all of mercer county in that 4 to 7 area and 6 through 9 farther to the south and then we go a little bit lower as we go even farther south than that. that's still a pretty substantial snowfall for extreme southern new jersey and southern delaware. quite a change from today to tomorrow. today's raining and mild. tomorrow snowy and cold. doesn't get much different than that. temperatures fall during the day tomorrow, setting up for some bitter cold weather for friday and into saturday morning. and then we finally start breaking out and get a decent weekend, dry weekend, dry into early next week and i believe it changes weather patterns by the middle of the month. >> we saw a delay at the airport about an hour incoming flights. you expect this will have an effect on the airport. >> the fog, the fog has helped the delay today. and the snow is going to make delays tomorrow morning really serious. >> so be forewarned those of
