4:17 pm
right now we have 50 degrees. a long way from snow temperatures. wind northwest at 10 miles an hour, the northwest wind will bring in somewhat colder air. so, as we go through the afternoon, we're going to be finding the temperatures, let's go back to that, now till 8:00 p.m., the rain spreading south to north, from 8:00 p.m. to 2:00 a.m., it's raining with temperatures in the 40s. then the temperatures drop into the 30s. from 2 to 6:00 a.m. and then all of a sudden it's going to go to snow. and it will go to kind of heavy wet sticky type of snow. and ending by 9 or 10 a.m. as you can see. so, it's a lot of this is happening in the middle of the night. you wake up in the morning look outside, that wasn't there when i went to sleep. and that's why the winter weather advisory for much of the area because of the timing of this affecting the morning rush.
4:18 pm
the live radar showing some rain in southern delaware, parts of south jersey, some of it is already reaching the ground and that area extends way down to the south. and there's more warm moisture spreading up. of course, there is no doubt there is rain. look at that. it's solid rain. nobody is seeing snow right now. one of those unusual kind of patterns. and it's not one of those cases where you can pretreat the roads because it's going to start as rain. 50 degrees in philadelphia, 40s, even 39 mount pocono. but as the evening goes on, here comes the rain. and the temperature drops slowly for a while. look at that. 1:00 a.m., raining. 40-plus. but here's the change over. it comes pretty much north to south as the colder air comes in and you go from the rain, darker blue is heavier snow. so, it can really reduce the
4:19 pm
visibility for a while. especially in new jersey and extreme southern delaware, farther north and west you are the less snow you're going to get. and then it's over. 10:00 a.m., that's it. it's not like a big storm or anything like that. but how much snow? 2 to 4 inches, locally higher amounts. sussex county, delaware, cape may, atlantic counties, the new jersey counties have the best chance of getting locally higher amounts. just inland from the shore in atlantic couldn't and ocean county, for example. 1 to 2 inches, a little closer to philadelphia area, including philadelphia. that will include new castle county, much of kent county, salem county, camden, northern burlington, and up to an inch north and west, but again, the timing is still the issue. that's what makes it kind of a tricky situation that we're going to. so the rain developing, changing
4:20 pm
to snow late tonight. temperatures generally staying above freezing everywhere. so a lot of this is just going to melt on the roads. maybe not all of it. early wet snow, then clearing and breezy. temperatures in the afternoon getting into the 40s. so everything's going to melt again. then we have a beautiful weekend here. a super sunday. and then we climb up on monday. another system comes up the coast, this could be more substantial. but does not look like a giant thing yet at this point. and some snow likely on tuesday before we get really cold after that. >> still ahead here, a story about guns on the streets of philadelphia as you've never seen before. >> we have exclusive undercover video of illegal gun sales and what'sing done right now to get those guns off the streets and make our city safer. >> plus, a famous rapper visits

right now, a first alert weather warning. big changes are heading our way, the first alert radar is tracking a system that will bring us rain and snow in a matter of hours. quite a contrast from what we saw today. >> here is a look at interstate 76, everything looks good, it is dry out there. no precip right now. the system moving in could make the morning commute messier but it depends on where you live. our team is tracking the storm. >> let's begin with glenn "hurricane" schwartz and glenn, this is starting to move into parts of our area? >> yeah, the rain has started in
4:30 pm
southern department delaware, it looks threatening, and of course it would start as rain if that mild. but we've got a first alert out for tomorrow morning because of the timing of this, it's kind of a backwards storm where there's going to be more snow to the south and east. so south jersey and the jersey shore and also philadelphia area are going to be affected. the rain beginning over the next several hours changing to snow in the middle of the night including during a portion of the rush hour. and ending by 10:00 a.m. low visibility and some slippery roads possible. but just wet now and they are going to be wet roads for a while. you don't often see radars like this coming into snow later on, but it's the case. there is more moisture coming up from the south and then the cold air comes in. so, first the rain spreads across the area. it's rainy, a good bit of the night with temperatures in the 40s. then as the temperatures drop,
4:31 pm
the rain changes over to snow, it can still be above the freezing mark, and snow. and that will happen overnight. big wet sticky flakes. and then the snow ends from west to east between 6 and 9:00 a.m. so again, the timing of it is what is the trickiest part. nbc 10's sheena parveen is taking a look at how much snow you're going to see. >> that's right. we expect that snow overnight and into the morning hours so temperatures will be at least cold enough to support that snow falling but the question is how much will accumulate. so here is a look across the area now. we expect the most in new jersey and delaware, so this would be around 2 to 4 inches, if we zoom in here you can see some spots would be showing about locally higher amounts in these areas. 2 to 4 for such says county, cumberland, atlantic counts and could see higher amounts here, too, the farther you get inland closer to the i-95 corridor, 1 to 2 inches through parts of new castle county, also through the philadelphia area, and these
4:32 pm
would include areas like i-95, 295, 76, 676, 1 to 2 inches up to trenton and to about 1 inch for montgomery, bucks and chester county. as far as the impact for the morning commute, mainly grassy accumulation to the north and west of i-95. closer to the philadelphia area, up toward trenton, wilmington, grassy accumulations but as the snow is falling visibility will be low. especially in new jersey, wet snow which will be heavy at times and low visibility, i think there will be quite a bit of problems on the roads for new jersey and parts of central and southern delaware with that snow falling at the time of the morning commute with it being so wet we're going to see low visibility sticking to your windshields, to grassy surfaces so be very, very careful in the morning and for some of you if that snow is falling during the morning commute you may want to wait a little long irbecause that visibility, again, is going to cause problems for that morning rush. coming up a closer look at the timing and what you can expect
4:33 pm
for the weekend. >> and count on nbc 10 to track this snow and rain and send out alerts on the app. thislwj1ç could impact buses in morning so you can find school closings and delays on the app and the nbc 10 team will be on the air at 4:00 tomorrow with the latest forecast and traffic impacts as well. all new at 4, for the first time the nbc 10 investigators will show us undercover video of illegal gun sales in philadelphia. the nbc 10 investigators have been looking into that dark side of the city. >> investigative reporter harry hairston tells us where the guns come from and how hard it is for law enforcement to get them off the street. harry. >> reporter: for weeks we've been going through the data and sitting down with those responsible for removing illegal guns from the streets. it's a battle that seems to be a stalemate as victims and their families call for more to be done. >> he always wanted to living in
