4:18 pm
when you said behind the scenes does it mean like he's going to be hanging out in the hotel rooms with them getting breakfast with them? i wouldn't be surprised. >> i wouldn't either. he's been talking about showing us exclusive behind the scenes video we haven't seen before. you got to watch that. a guy who is watching the skies for us, first alert meteorologist glenn "hurricane" schwartz. the cold here is like buffalo. >> that's the problem he's got to be in buffalo to do the reporting. in the weather department, we say that buffalo has two seasons, winter and the fourth of july. it's a rough climate up there. 38 degrees with an 18 mile an hour sustained winds. almost like a buffalo march. you can see we're in the 30s everywhere. we're seeing a lot of sunshine which is something new. and the temperatures in new jersey, for example, mostly still in the 30s. got 38 at mullica hill.
4:19 pm
vineland. a couple spots that's hit 40, lumberton and medford. 39 in princeton. and of course, it's going to get colder once it gets dark. the wind gusts, well, they'll be going down after it gets dark, too. gusting 36 miles an hour in dover. 35 in tom's river. so not quite as gusty as it was yesterday. but, still, doesn't help when the wind is -- when the temperature is like, what we're seeing. it feels like it's 28 now in philadelphia. 22 in coatesville. which, again, ismore tolerable than yesterday. below normal but not quite as cold. we have to be concerned about the melting of the snow and refreezing every night.
4:20 pm
because it's going to be cold enough for that to happen. and there is that chance of more snow as tammy mentioned. one threat friday night into saturday morning. another part of the system saturday night into sunday morning. now, more accumulation in the areas that got the most accumulation with the last one. we're still kind of dry on the radar here. a few lake effect snow flurries. this is the next system that's going to be affecting us over the weekend. it's a long way away, getting into the dakotas now. temperatures in the teens, when the wind diminishes and we've got clear sky and we still have that snow cover, the temperature can really plunge even lower than the computer models would suggest. 22 in philadelphia. and then by afternoon, we're only in the mid30s. then as we go into saturday, take a look at these
4:21 pm
temperatures in the 30s across much of the area. north of philadelphia. so not only do we have that chance of snow by saturday morning, it could possibly stick a little bit, special up to the north. as the day goes on, that rain/snow line moves up but then another area starts to come in for saturday night and sunday morning. so like i said, two shots, neither of them are big storms. and so we just have to keep our eye on this. there is sunday morning with the different computer model. and we'll update the rest of the forecast coming up a little bit later. all right, glenn, see you soon. a mystery reader at a montgomery county elementary school reveals a big surprise. >> still ahead on nbc 10 news at 4:00, the surprise homecoming that a second grade student never saw coming. plus, the waiting game. one man says his tax return never showed up in his bank account until he finally called nbc 10 responds. how our team got him the

4:27 pm
yeah, i just saved a whole lot of money by to geico. we should take a closer look at geico... you know, geico insures way more than cars. boats, motorcycles... even rvs!

4:30 pm
hall. it's all because of ice falling from buildings. you can see crews out there trying to get rid of that ice. nbc 10's george spencer is live in sky force 10 to fill us in, george? >> reporter: rosemary, talk about frigid work on this march day. these crews are just pulling up their lines on the top of the psfs building in center city after they have been working to knock the dangling ice off the edge of this building. we take a look at the traffic below. we can tell you some of the ice earlier in the day had been falling out on to the streets below. until just recently, market street in this area had been entirely closed to traffic. but since we were last above the scene, we can tell you it has reopened here east of city hall. this is big news, of course, for commuters who drive their cars in this area, but just as much for people who take septa buses. there are a number of major septa bus stops right here on market street east of city hall. market street in this area has reopened. it seems they've gotten a handle
4:31 pm
on the falling ice at least for today. that is the latest live in sky force 10. george spencer. >> thanks for that. and of course, a block over from market street we've got the flower show happening at the convention center. we know traffic has been busy there. >> traffic's been bad today and reopening the street is going to help just in time for the height of rush hour. the bitter cold is not helping with the icy conditions. >> glenn "hurricane" schwartz, tracking the chill in your most accurate weather forecast. that's a pretty shot behind you though, glenn. >> yes, it is. we finally have some nice blue skies. it's been pretty gloomy around here along with the chill that we've been seeing. and it's also been really, really windy. temperatures in the 30s, just barely 40 in atlantic city and dover. the average temperature at this point of the day, this time of the year is 53. no where near it. the last few days, and even over the next couple we're still way short of that.
4:32 pm
and we don't really have a big change in the weather pattern for at least another week. current winds, sustained out of the northwest, 20-30 miles per hour. and that's sustained. continuous wind. that is making it tougher. now, the temperature is going to be going down rapidly during the night tonight because the wind is going to diminish. that's going to allow the temperature to really plummet, especially in the pa suburbs and lehigh valley. the low temperatures tonight, down into the teens because of that snow cover. but it is going to stay clear. we're going to have sunshine for a good bit of tomorrow. we'll see if that lasts through the weekend and it won't. coming up in a few minutes. >> all right, we'll see you shortly, thanks, glenn. now to nbc 10 responds. one of our viewers was looking forward to his nearly $7,000 tax return. >> i bet he was.

4:34 pm
of the information that was put in. >> his money went to someone else's account, at a bank he never used. he says h&r block told him he had to fix it on his own. >> you got to go to the bank that the money got deposited into. >> he says the bank told him to contact the irs. the irs declined to help. >> they said, look, because there was an electronic deposit, we're not at fault. >> after nearly a year of trying to get help he contacted nbc 10 responds. we contacted h&r block. the company told us the problem has been resolved and it regrets any convenience the situation caused. >> they were basically going to be eating the cost. >> h&r block sent him this check for $69.,969 which inkwludclude filing fee. >> looking pretty good there. i would be too getting that kind of money back. we spoke with a tax expert.
4:35 pm
to prevent this, review the routing number before anything else is filed. if you catch a problem within a few days, you can contact the irs and cancel the electronic deposit. if you catch it later, you can fill out this 3911 form on the irs website. again, folks, this is the 3911 form. that allows the irs to start digging deeper and try to rectify the situation. i'm also told the bank doesn't have to give you the money. >> it's incredible. and then he had to go to the irs and the irs said we can't help you. he waited a year to get his money back. >> a year. >> you finally came through for him. >> he got it back. >> new air conditioner, harry. >> let's go to our recovery counter. we're going to claim some recovery there. brings up to $387,276. money back for our viewers. >> nice work. if you have a consumer complaint for nbc 10 responds, fill out a form on nbc also give us a call if you

4:47 pm
it refreezes at night. and we're above freezing everywhere. but not by a whole lot and at least we have sunshine. and in delaware, we're seeing temperatures near 40 degrees. newark, harmony hills at 39. middletown at 39 as well. and southern delaware mostly around 40. harrington, bridgeville, milton, lewis, all at 40 degrees. the current wind gusts, 30-40 miles per hour in many parts of the area. still windy dover air force base in the 30s all day. nothing on the radar close by. the next area to affect is coming into the northern plains. it's going to race eastward. it's not a major storm. it's certainly not going to affect anybody for st. patrick's day in the morning. it's going to be a little bit breezy. and then less wind as we go through the day. so really pretty decent day compared to what we've been seeing. five to ten mile an hour winds.

fairmount 44 after that cold morning. allentown down into the teens. it is cold in the morning, but we at least get to 40 plus in the afternoon most of the area, alongport to 42. new jersey, delaware to 44. might even seem balmy getting into the 40s after the chill we've had. here we go through friday, things are nice and dry. friday night we're dry. here we go, right, saturday morning, there's the snow. this is the first part of the system, snow to the north, rain to the south. then as the day goes on. the rain spreads to the north. again, we're not talking about a big storm. saturday night. maybe even comes down through the philadelphia area and into sunday morning. got another model showing a little bit of light snow. so it's not anything like the last storm.
4:49 pm
by 1:00 saturday afternoon, a few places get about an inch. this is one of our computer models. an average of our models. philly around an inch. west chester, potts town, 2. allentown around 3. i don't see the potential for anything really big out of this. but it's a nuisance, an inconvenience that's for sure. there's the snow and the lehigh valley. a little bit lighter snow on sunday. high temperatures only in the 30s. so you get that one nice day tomorrow and then it gets not so great over the weekend. and there's the jersey shore and delaware, we got a mix of rain and snow on sunday after just rain on saturday. so yeah, it's not going to be the sunniest or warmest weekend. at least we can tell you it's not going to be a repeat of that last storm that we had, the amount of precipitation.
