7:20 am
across the board. a lot of this will start as snow before the center of the storm gets closer to us. now that the center of the storm is nearing us, you see the snow bands, deeper blues, more steady to heavy snow that is likely through much of tuesday morning. also notice the pink indicating sleeting conditions. rain near the shore and southern delaware. this is a key component to this forecast. models have been back and forth on whether the storm center is closer to us which pushes the rain into philly and heavier snow farther to the north and west and pulling the storm system farther to sea which brings more snow to areas like philly, wilmington and some of the most northern edges of south jersey. right now we're going with a solution that pulls it out a little more to sea because more models are starting to lean that way which is a good sign. consistency is what we need as this storm starts to develop down south. then we'll have a better forecast. right now watching snow

now your nbc 10 first alert weather. >> welcome back. starting with the temperatures out there this morning and live looks outside. a lot of us have plenty of sun to start out with, and through the day like yesterday, we'll see a mix of clouds and sun. 24 in philadelphia right now. 7-mile-per-hour winds will crank up a tad later today. in the suburbs at 14 for a current temperature. 20 for parts of new jersey,
7:45 am
teens for the lehigh valley and 22 in delaware. spring forward your clocks an hour if you haven't already because we're inder daylight saving time. later today, still cold, 36 for philly, breezy across the board. low 30s for the suburbs and lehigh valleys. mid 30s in new jersey and delaware, some spots in delaware should see upper 30s as well. overall, very cold today especially with breezy conditions. that's going to keep our ground nice and cold as our winter storm potential starts to pick up. we are under a winter storm watch, and that's for almost all of our area aside from the shore points as well as southern delaware. those are the zones that could see that mix of rain and snow, lower snow totals, but al long the shore points we have the possibility of minor coastal flooding and beach erosion as a result of the storm. especially it presses near our location. let's track it out. hour-by-hour forecast, this is a wide view so i can show you two
7:46 am
elements part of this whole set up. first up, a system that will track from west to east near us. this is going to combine with a coastal low that's going to form down to the south and drive right up the east coast. as it interacts with the ocean water, varying temperatures and clips land near the carolinas, that's going to affect how the storm strengthens. that will affect the track as well monday and early tuesday. by early tuesday, look at the snow potential across most of our area, aside from the southern most zones where we have the possibility of thunderstorms as well. with lots of moisture and warmer air from the ocean, you see the line presses north around 6:00 a.m. around wilmington to philadelphia to trenton and north and west, that's where we should see the pockets of heaviest snow. now, on top of that, this will linger tuesday afternoon into the evening, even snowshowers into wednesday which will provide those higher totals.
7:47 am
another issue, the wind gust. here is tuesday at 1:00 a.m., gusty near the shore as the storm center gets closer to us. gusts at 40 along the shore, 25 to 30 miles per hour near philadelphia, and the only increase by noon, 62-mile-per-hour gusts are possible as we get to shore points which leads to the threat of coastal flooding. we'll talk more about this on your ten-day on 10 coming up. >> this is "sports desk" brought to you by xfinity. x1 from xfinity will change the way you experience tv. good morning. i'm danny pommells from csn. in the last two years jay wright and villa nova have accomplished everything you can think of from a college basketball program besides the conference championship. ville november la lost last year to season hall. hoping to erase that memory. first half, josh hart up to the task, drills a three. that would be a sign of things to come for sure. later in the half nova on the

advantage, david pastrnak camped out in front of the net. cashes in off the feed from bergeron. bruins up 1-0. flyers answer early, shot from the point, wayne simmonds there causing havoc. it's jordan weal who gets the payoff. his third of the year. a couple of chopsticks on the board. tied at one apiece. stayed that wait until late in the third. drew stafford floats one on net. brandon manning, off his stick and in. oy vey, what a way to end it. flyers take it on the chin. manning's friendly fire is the difference. they lose 2-1. remain five points out of the play-offs: first in two for the sixers, this one against the clippers. like the movie "la la land" at the oscars, the sixers weren't in the conversation at the end. pick things up in the third, great ball movement from the sixers. mcconnell to covington to okafor. sixers up four after the flush. clippers took the lead in the fourth. they were up eight when timothe luwawu-cabarrot cut to the rim,

drops in a pair over deandre jordan. deaf deficit cut to six. the aforementioned chris paul puts it to bed on the other end. his three-pointer liquid as the sixers lose 112-100. one final note, phillies beat the blue jays 8-2 in spring training. that's it for sports. i'm danny pommells, csn. replacing obamacare, it was a campaign promise that the president and republicans who rolled out the new health care plan this week. it will be the focus of discussion this morning on "meet the press." joining us with moderator of "meet the press," chuck todd. good morning. >> good morning, rosemary. >> you'll have an exclusive interview with health and human services secretary tom price. trump administration putting pressure on house republicans to get behind the bill. how much of a battle are we talking about? >> they have a big uphill battle.
7:51 am
politically they know what they have to do. they have to fulfill this promise. but the policy is making different parts of the republican party uncomfortable. conservatives think this new plan leaves too much of obamacare's architecture in place. moderates, republican moderates believe that it takes away too many aspects of obamacare that will make it unworkable for them, particularly medicaid expansion. that's just inside the republican party. normally, if you're a functioning government, you think you can work with some members of the other party. the way republicans sat on the sidelines during the obamacare votes, democrats plan on staying on the sidelines during this revision of it. it puts the president and house speaker ryan in a tough spot. politically they have to figure out how to unite the party. the policy is just not something they can come up with that seems very unifying. >> chuck, the other big story is the sudden firing of the obama

holdover u.s. attorneys. it's customary for a new president to put people in these positions, but the timing is being criticized as well as what happened to preet bharara. he says he was asked to stay on. what's going on here? is this protocol or is the president trying to send a message? >> i think it's a little bit of this. this is procedure protocol, number one. u.s. attorneys, that's a way that parties build their political benches. many u.s. attorneys go on to run for governor, run for the senate, things like that. this is how a political party essentially sees the government with future rising stars. it is totally customary for a new administration and a new party to essentially clean house among u.s. attorneys with a few exceptions. preet bharara thought he would be an exception. chuck schumer asked president-elect trump to keep

preet bharara as district attorney in new york. apparently they had a verbal agreement. relations between schumer and the president have powered big time. he doesn't now have job zurt. it doesn't surprise me. again, if that promise hadn't been made specifically to preet bharara, this might not be a big story this morning. >> chuck todd, moderator of "meet the press," thanks for your insight. >> you got it. >> health and human services secretary tom price will be chuck's exclusive guest on "meet the press." that comes your way at 10:30 right here on nbc 10.
