we had some snow that came in early this morning. it wasn't necessarily something that you could spot on the radar. so we to rely strictly on ground confirmation. so thank you to all of our "eyewitness weather" watchers. it's not too late to shine up. shameless plug. we'll get you all signed up. the snow is actually still falling in some places like the poconos for example. we'll start things off by going outside take you on a little tour here around handful of cameras this is actually a shot from place one apartments over mid-county to the highways things are looking quite right now. we did actually see a little bit of very light snow move in around this region. didn't have chance to stick or accumulate necessarily but this is one spot that will certainly be impacted by the snow tomorrow. all of us will be. it's just you see more in some places rather than others. so let's get next to our pocono camera where folks are making the most of this. it is still snowing. if you look closely you can see over at at leave the darkened
12:19 pm
trees the flakes flying with lots of people hitting the slopes here into the afternoon with some fresh powder. but the snowfall totals so far are not all that impressive they'll get more impressive with time. that first little round that came through hamburg in berks county half an inch. even at phl airport just a trace but again not much at least initially that will start to total up little bit later on tonight into early tomorrow especially. here's the latest couple of hours loop. actually look back at six hours past on this radar. so take look. you'll see this edge lead in as far east as parts of chester, montgomery and buck county. right. that's the furthest it gets and that was early this morning. but it was actually snowing and leaving behind a dusting in new castle county, delco, parts of philadelphia county, so it was actually falling and not showing up on the radar. it was very light precipitation. the cloud layer was very very thin it didn't have a lot of moisture with it so sometimes that happens. we're things are falling from
12:20 pm
the sky and the radar is not pick up on them but as we've been saying, this is a system that's strong way out all the way back to the lone star state in fact some snow falling right now. the winter alerts are very numerous. they extend all it way from maine straight back into texas whether it's winter storm warning or winter weather advisory like we have there's millions of people that are impacted by this one frontal bon degree. here's what it current feel like. 38 degrees in the airport feeling hike 42. very close to where the actual air temperature is. right. let me show you the cold coming in the wake of the front much can you tell where the frontal boundary has crossed through already? it is telling like 3 degrees currently in nashville by comparison and it actually feels colder in birmingham than it does here. so that tells you something. it is a very very stark contrast in the wake of the front we get in on some of that cold ourselves. let's walk you through this. here's the actual pattern. had little bit of snow early on here comes the frontal boundary late tonight and then into tomorrow morning. that we see the bulk of this come through it's not that
12:21 pm
impressive when it comes to snowfall totals in the city but you can end up with half a foot in the northwest corner of our area here. we'll get to the snow map in a minute. great at the time impacts from us definitely going to happen tomorrow morning simply because the timing is not great and even though it's not a major impact with the snowfall totals, with the timing that's coming in the morning, of course a lot of us trying to hit the road and get out the door that will linder you highest amounts will do to the north and west. so here it is. our exclusive eyewitness snowfall map. get a little hoping for a little slow down toward the shore points. one to three follow along i-95 and the immediate vicinity. but here's the sweet shot. three to 6-inches along that northwest half that's where you do have the winter weather advisories posted and you've already had some accumulation from earlier on. looking forward though i promised you some warming trend. didn't i take a look at this by friday back to where we should be low 40s but in the sunshine that sun will shine through the weekend. if you're like me and you have yet to take down your christmas decorations this could be really
