aspects of obamacare that will make it unworkable for them, particularly the issue of medicaid expansion. so that's just inside the republican party. >> health and human services secretary tom price will be chuck todd's exclusive guest this morning on "meet the press." it comes your way at 10:30 right here on nbc 10. we have a heads up for drivers. a bridge construction project means road restrictions in montgomery county. the road is going to be closed. we'll have the details coming up. ♪ we are family >> losing a legend. sad news to report about a member of a popular music act from philadelphia. cold temperatures in the forecast for your sunday. a winter storm watch in the forecast as we start your workweek. we're going to take a look at those updated snow total forecasts coming up.

potential and totals. 25 in philadelphia, 21 in the suburbs and new jersey at 22 degrees. low 20s for the lehigh valley getting out of the teens, mid 20s for delaware. feels colder than it actually is. we showed you that a minute ago because we've got light winds, mostly in the single digits. later today i do expect we'll get breezy. forecast highs, another cold one, 36 for philly. low 30s over much of the bord here. mid to upper 30s for delaware later the day. radar and satellite for us, right now we're actually mostly clear. again, like we saw yesterday, some clouds are going to slide on in through out the afternoon hours. we'll see a mix of clouds and sunshine. but we stay dry today. on the hour-by-hour forecast, let's do a little fast forwarding, '6:30 on your monday. two elements for us to watch. first off, a storm brewing off to the west -- right now the northwest part of the country. by monday evening it will be
creeping closer to us, illinois, indiana and into ohio, you see the area of snow. that will provide cold air and it's also going to provide some moisture boost. the big boost comes from a coastal low that will develop and pull in from the south, there we go, clipping parts of the carolinas. as this moves over the ocean waters, this will help decide the track of this storm. this is the potential track right now. you see it's bringing snow and a rain-snow mix as we go through your morning hours. so what we're looking at here is better snow potential north and west of the philly area and better chances for snow to rain, possibly back to snow in areas south of philadelphia. that continues through your tuesday, although the brunt of the activity will hit right during the morning rush. not likely to be a morning rush with this kind of forecast. the system starts to move off as we go late day tuesday.
on the back side, i expect we'll continue with snow. and that will linger into your wednesday forecast as well. here is a look at the updated snow totals. like i mentioned, the whole weather team was chatting on the phone deciding on the numbers. likely we'll update them again as we watch the track of the storm. if it's closer inland, that means the higher snow amounts go farther to the north. if it moves farther to sea, the totals could drop south more. zero to six inches along our shore points and south delaware. three to eight inches in the light blue you see over much of south jersey and into kent county. then we go 4 to 12 inches. this is a larger range because this is a tight gradient between rain-snow or just snow. along the i-895 corridor, some spots could see up to about 12 inches or more. the purple, that's 8 to 14 inches over most of the pennsylvania suburbs. the pink through parts of chester county as well as lehigh valley and berks county, 10 to
16 inches or more. just before we got on the air at 9:00, you and our other team of meteorologists were on a conference call talking about the models, talking about the totals. those models update frequently, have a brief shelf life. >> absolutely. really the models get much better once the system gops. we don't even have a storm to track. the low needs to develop along the east coast south and move along the different ocean waters. it might clip the carolinas. once that starts happening, we'll get more data, those models will get better and we keep updating you guys. >> thanks, krystal. still ahead in the next half hour, an amazing response to one man's medical emergency in mid air. not just one doctor on board, there were dozens. if philadelphia wildcats capture another title. now their sights are set on a
bigger prize. it's ahead on your sunday sports. actor robert de niro talks about his son's autism. blaming his condition on mercury. >> i love my child more than anything. wouldn't change him. his life has been altered forever. >> you believe your son's autism is linked to the vaccination? >> i believe so, yes. >> he says that despite overwhelming scientific evidence that finds no link between the two. this morning on "nbc10 @issue," we discuss a new study with a local autism advocate that may help to end the debate. that's at 11:30 on nbc 10.
wouldn't it be great if we could hit fast forward to spring and be done with the storm coming our way this week? not the case. in the meantime, if you'd like to get in the spirit of the season, head to the pennsylvania convention center for the philadelphia flower show. tulips are among the tens of thousands of flowers in bloom there right now. this year's theme is holland, flowering the world. >> i love the flower show. it's spring early every year. >> compared to what it's like outside -- >> i love snow, too. >> we're getting a little bit of that, as you've heard.
