>> do i have a choice? >> we don't have a choice. none of us have a choice. >> a lot coming our way. this is a powerhouse storm bringing effect from snow and rain and sleet. and power outages. >> and the kitchen sink too. >> hopefully it's clean. lets look at the weather center looking at stormtracker 6 live double scan two pieces of energy coming together one is fizzling and one near chicago, this one is taking over that will become the nor'easter rain and snow to the west. coming in during the evening hours. here are the highlights or low lights depending how you look at this. a high impact storm no matter where you are. the peak will be during the daytime hours on your wednesday. 9:00 a.m. until 5:00 p.m. is the heaviest is in the northwest suburbs and the strong winds s storm are along the immediate coastline. as we look at temperatures warm now during the day today. everyone basically in the mid to upper 40s and thinking how can
it snow. it feels good out there. as we look at satellite 6 along with action radar here is the energy to the west and here is is the southern moisture gathering and deepens off the coastline and work to the northern and east. 10:00 tonight snowing to the north and west. and raining down to the south and east. and northwestern suburbs it snows all night and waking up to slushy roads in southeastern pennsylvania. 8:00 if the morning in philadelphia. philly will mix at times it will be in the morning hours tomorrow sleet or rain at times possibly with rain down to tth and snow to the north and west. as that low deepens here off our coast and yanks down the cold air and temperatures fall into the 30s and snow takes over for a good chunk of the delaware and lehigh valley. and snows at heavy rates orrow. collapses down to the shore briefly before it exits here and temperatures flirting with freezing in those northwest suburbs. as we go into the storm our
later thinking with this is highnce. it hits double digit snowfall totals in the lehigh valley. and areas northern bucks and berks county. low confidence though along i-95. the heart of our viewing area because that is where the bat zone will be of. does is it mix for a long period of time for sleet and rain or does it stay on track. that is the one zone we have to watch. here is the high confident area of 10 to 15 inches of snow a beast of a storm all areas in the purple. and in the pink 6 to 10 and 3 to 6 in the white and 1 to 3 south and west and a sharp cutoff of where you see close to 10 to 15 or 1 to 3 depend on the track. but along i-95 6 to 10. and 6 if it mixes with sleet for a long period of time andser to 10 if it doesn't.
and high confidence up here and here where it's 1 to 3 inches in the tail end after a lot of rainfall. talking about power outages, most likely in theers where we see the high snow heavy wet snow weighing on everything and 1 to 2 inches there in southwestern pennsylvania and even thundersnow is possible because the system as it develops will become such a large storm. as we look at the exclusive accuweather seven-day forecast accuweather alert tomorrow and windy heavy snow and rain at times 37 and brisk and 42 we could wake up to morning snow showers on friday with another little system. 43 with returning sun in the afternoon and a march chill on saturday what and increasing clouds on sun and remind you to turn the clocks ahead this weekend and watch on monday a storm threat to the south. it looks to sneak to the south and partly sunny and 46. tune in to the social media pages for all the latest and
more models tonight that will fine tune the forecast even more. >> adam thanks. coming up hacks for parents en. we'll talk about that in what's the deal. i had frequent heartburn, but my doctor recommended... ...prilosec otc 7 years ago, 5 years ago, last week. just 1 pill each morning, 24 hours and zero heartburn. it's been the number 1 doctor recommended brand for 10... ...straight years, and it's still recommended today. use as directed. your hair is so soft! did you use head and shoulders two in one? i did mom. wanna try it? yes. it intensely moisturizes your hair and scalp and keeps you flake free. manolo? i should be in the shot now too. try head and shoulders two in one.
