6:01 am
will actually get reinforced again before said and done. very chilly out that way. it is moderate here, cold, but key piece of information that goes along with the forecast with this front that's crossing through, you are in the g how things are turning over, the temperatures dropping, the colder air wrapping in, as is it does that, you will see the change- over and transition from rain to snow. now i am not expecting a lot of accumulation out of this, places cents like toby hanna, up in the poconos, has been seeing inch and a half, precipitation obviously done there, but the big issue is that the temperature will be falling, so currently in the 30's, if the sit, atlantic city, as well. but out in mount pocono already in the teens. and the temperatures will only drop off from here. so take to you future temperatures in the next few hours, even as early as 8:00 a.m., we could be few degrees below freezing in the city. so, even though the precipitation is gone, any damp roads, any puddles left over, will likely freeze back over. so, you're going to have to account for that here. even though wet weather is done.
