6:18 pm
so you got at least in the back of your mind think about what you might do if it becomes more and more clear. because it does have the potential to be quite disruptive. we have a possible change to rain, especially south and east of the philly area, toward the shore that would limit the amount of snow to some degree, but bitter winds through tuesday, no doubt about that. and it's feeling like it's below zero by day break. it is 22 degrees now, feels like 7 in philadelphia with a 21 mile an hour wind. and as we go through the night tonight, you can see the temperature gradually goes down and the wind stays there. so by 7:00 in the morning, it's 14, but feels like 2 below zero right in philadelphia and, obviously, colder to the north and west. already in the teens in some areas. 18 in pottstown and reading. low 20s elsewhere. the wind is still pretty significant. 20 to 30 mile an hour gusts,
6:19 pm
maybe not quite as much as a couple hours ago, but the wind is going down slowly. so the wind chills are in the single digits everywhere except below zero in mount pocono. we had a few snow flurries in the poconos earlier. that has pretty much gone. the lake effect snows are affecting new york state, so we have to go across the country and into the ocean in the pacific and this is a pretty well developed storm out there. there's a lot of moisture with it. the el nino fuelled jet stream is very strong, warm water offshore to help add to the moisture for this storm, so it's partly about the temperature and it's plenty cold. look how cold it gets overnight tonight with temperatures feeling like it's down below zero. even tomorrow afternoon it's barely feeling like 10 or 12, and tomorrow night and into wednesday morning, it's cold again. then we start looking to the west for that storm. as it moves into the cold air,
6:20 pm
it would start as snow everywhere, and the track according to the most reliable computer models, pretty ideal for significant snow in this area. and we're talking about if it's all snow, a lot of snow north and west. there's a possible mix in and around the philadelphia area. we'll update that tomorrow to see how much that will affect the accumulations and snow changing to rain at the shore, limiting the snow totals, but they are going to get some really bad winds and coastal flooding. windy tonight, 15 degrees for the low in philadelphia. of course, feeling like minus 2 by morning. temperatures tomorrow not getting out of the mid to upper 20s and still gusts to 40 miles an hour. another bitter cold morning on wednesday. not quite as bitter on thursday, then the first alert for friday and saturday, pretty sure it's going to be a winter storm out there. the details remain to be seen. complete update coming at 11:00.
