7:16 am
precipitation. the rain is heavy in spots. down to the south of us, but having said that, you could see a few flakes flying around, here a few sleet pellets on your windshield as you are driving around in places like delaware county or in chester county around, west goshen. around wilmington, delaware but again, it is very light and a lot of thinks in melting as soon as it reaches the ground. so it is places like cape may, sea isle city,er with we will see some heavier rain this morning as well as lewis, delaware. so a winter weather advisory is not in effect just yet but it has been issued for 1:00 o'clock this afternoon to 10:00 o'clock tonight for lancaster county, berks county, lehigh and northampton counties as well as carbon and monroe because those are the places when the rain that you saw moves northward they will get some frozen precipitation. it is all part of this situation with the warm front moving northward throughout the day. it was a cold front. we're moving northward as a warm front. we told but this yesterday. it moves in the place where the air is colder. we will just show thaw too.
7:17 am
so as that happens after 12:00 noon what you will see is rain around the philadelphia area bit is north and west of the city where we can see some snow mix nothing and maybe even accumulating a little bit up in the mountains which is exactly where they want the snow. and then after i would say around 7:00 o'clock, everything is changing over to rain. because warmer air is moving in behind the warm front. we're still raining around 11:00 o'clock tonight but shortly after that it gets out of here. so, it was a mild start to this december. the first of december, 65 degrees. hopefully you enjoyed that yesterday. because it is not going to be that warm today. 40 degrees this afternoon will be kind of the average temperature. we have already reached 40 today. but i think we will get back there. and then, cannot even rule out a few peaks of sunshine, depending on where you are once the rain end for you and you take a little break 567893 degrees tomorrow, with mostly cloudy skies. sunny and chilly on thursday and then a mix is possible in the morning on friday, changing over to rain with
7:18 am
48 degrees. a little unsettled over the weekend but we will work on that forecast especially for you if you are going to the eagles game on sunday afternoon. that is your seven day forecast. all right, bob kelly, what do you got. >> 7:18 exactly, sue. it is downtown charlie brown, a live look at the vine street expressway, same volume for end to end from the schuylkill over to i-95, exit nothing to downtown this morning. here's a live look at route 13, in delaware. give you an idea of center city is dry. further south, and east that you go we're dealing with rain and then further north and west we will go, you are keeping with that wintry mix but a live look at delaware where the roads are wet, thinks a live look at the 42 freeway, coming in towards philadelphia, and again, not that bad at all. so it is really all hit and miss depending upon where you begin and end your trip for this morning's rush hour. we will go to the maps now, and then the pennsylvania turnpike, through can come from the west, heading in towards downingtown, morgan town into king of prussia, we're starting to see some volume. nothing really out of the

7:36 am
fancy, mri pet scan sort of things. so, the deal here is that although my son loves hockey, he is probably nicholas if you are listening, i'm sorry, you will probably not make it in the nhl because you have my genes flowing through your blood. you have to use your brain. these kids will to have make a living using their brain. we have to be really meticulous about prevending head injury. >> how do you do that, if i'm a parent and my kidneys football. he has been on the field but i want him to keep playing or he wants to keep playing. >> football is part of america. president obama even said look if i had boys and they wanted to play football or girls for that matter, i would give second thought to letting them play. the problem is that you have a brain encased in a skull. even when you put titanium in
7:37 am
front of that brain in the form of the helmet when you have a sudden deceleration that brain moves a little bit and causes small damage leading to chronic traumatic problems and we are seeing more and more of this. not only can it make you have memory loss but lead to increased risk of suicide, death by suicide and we are seeing that more and more. >> we just saw it with the ohio state football player, junior seau the the hall of fame football player, and others. >> thanks for coming in. >> yes. >> 7:37. it is giving tuesday and they are out giving cups of coffee outside our studio at fourth and market. we will tell you how you can also give back

8:15 am
stuff is north and west of the city as this proceeds into colder territory. and then maybe light accumulations around mount pocono, up in the ski resorts, they will love it. any amount of natural snow is always welcomed, but after maybe six or seven or 8:00 o'clock at night everything is changing over to rain, because milder air will move in the wake of that warm front and it will continue to rain, through about midnight, 1:00 o'clock in the morning and then pretty much be out of here, maybe a little sprinkle or two in the morning tomorrow. but here we are with rain in delaware. it looks like things have calmed down quite a bit but again, a little later this afternoon it will all come back northward and then probably cause a bit of a mess north and west of the city, but we have dried it out around the university of delaware and newark. we are still raining in milford, delaware and in georgetown and lewis, and at the jersey shore as well. so our temperature is well above freezing in philadelphia it is a lot colder to the north and west, and plus, the winter weather advisory for later on in the day. and then temperatures, will
