pretty much right over the great lakes into the southern new england area but this one's going to track a little bit farther south. it will be able to intensify as it reach the east coast and it's going to be able to gain some of that atlantic moisture and throw that back into our region. that's why this storm is going to be a little strong than your typical clipper system eventually as we head into monday afternoon monday night. winds starting to kick up bind this storm system we're about 17 miles per hour out of the west out of philadelphia. that's drying things out adding a little bit of a wind chill to the region right now. this is wait feels like. mid-20's in allentown, 27 in philadelphia, 23 in millville. so, if you're heading out overnight you need to dress warm. here's the setup. there's the clipper that moved through very early monday morning in the form of light snow but it's later monday as it moves off the coast before it will watch this rapidly intensify. where does it track? that's going to be huge. that will determine if we have additional snow come later monday night into tuesday morning if it tracks farther off the coast then we just see light amounts but as of now sunday night into monday, let's break it down for this first period, light snow will develop 9 o'clock to midnight. again, periods of light snow through monday afternoon. this will lead to a slow morning commute. it could be a light accumulation of inch or two on the ground by that morning commute in some spots. best shots to see the highest amounts would be across eastern new jersey. basically 3-inches from the city higher the farther east you go. less the farther north and west you go. then we'll have to watch out later monday night. where does this storm intensify? that's going to be huge. that will tell us if we get
additional snow on top of those numbers and again the speeds and the track will determine the exact amounts before the storm system is gone by sometime tuesday morning into tuesday afternoon. so let's time it out for you. not much happening tomorrow. sunshine just some clouds build n midnight 1:00 a.m., that light snow starts to spread from west to east. again key word here is light but still enough to cause problems for the morning commute. into the afternoon periods of light snow. we got a watch here we go. monday night into early tuesday morning how close does the storm get to the coast? does it bring heavier steadier snows to eastern new jersey? that's still the question. a lot of air in this forecast. we won't be able to tell until the storm starts to develop later on monday. partly cloudy, breezy over overnight 30 degrees for the low temperature for the city not as cold for sunday, partly sunny, up to 41 degrees. here we go with the extended forecast. again periods of snow monday and again we could see that additional snow monday night depend where did you go that storm tracks and then tuesday maybe a chance for some snow early in the morning. then improving conditions later in the day and by the end of the week, it just stays cold, highs in the 30's. could be a few more light snow showers coming in early friday but the overall trend here is cold temperatures, arctic air with storms moving in every three days or so. >> oh, boy. >> yeah. >> okay, i know we're all just gasping here. it's winter. >> yes, it is. >> all right just tinge lesley deflate-gate won't go away. >> no, it really won't. yeah this time patriots coach bill belichick says his team followed the rules. he held a surprise press conference today. we're going to hear from him coming up. sixers looking to get back on track in memphis tonight
