4:46 am
interest nal. pike creek delaware got 8.2. little over eight in mount holly, new jersey. atlantic city set a new daily snowfall record yesterday with 7 inches. our record was 8.8. so we didn't make it the but we still got a lot of snow. happily there is nothing to show you on ultimate doppler. not only nothing here in the area, but nothing on the way for the weekend. so we don't have anything in the offing for weekend storms. after the last two weekend, we will welcome that. 4 degrees is our current temperature. you will hear me say the record for this date is ten. we will not make it because sunrise is coming up at 6:30. 10 degrees in dover. ten in wilmington. somebody got a ten. we have wind speeds as much as 14 miles an hour 9 miles an hour, 8 miles an hour depending where you are and that takes wind chill down to inning is will digits or below zero. it is a 2 degrees wind chill in philadelphia if you have to venture out make sure you
