upper teens across much of the area today. clear skies. a few high thin clouds will come through. this little system wants to skirt by to the north of us, but we'll see plenty of sunshine out there. by tomorrow, we'll be looking at the low 20s, perhaps even the mid-20s, we'll make it out of the teens. going in the right direction, right? we get to wednesday, we make it into perhaps the upper 20s, but there is a little something something coming up the coast. and some storm system may bring us snow late wednesday and thursday. further off the coast, maybe only a little snow. further to the west, it looks like rain. right now, the track could bring us snow, this would be thursday morning for your commute and then out of here by thursday night, but it is worth watching because that could be a messy situation by the time that we get into wednesday night. and that is just a couple days away. so 19 today, dangerous cold out there with windchills 0 to minus 10 at times. 24 tomorrow, it will be frigid. we'll still have windchills in
the single digits at times. 31 wednesday. 25 on thursday. that is the day we watch for possible snow. 16 by the time that we get in to early friday. look at these temperatures, still in the teens and then down toward next week when we finally pick up some 40s. that will feel absolutely glorious. 4:23. and some people may just be going home at this point. it is new year's. >> and pamela osborne starting on off with a look at 95. >> i think you're right. when i was on my way in, i saw a lot of ubers and lyfts on the roadway. this is at 95 at castor, just a few cars on the roadway. drive times in the 60s right now, average speeds. only problem spot i'm seeing is back on the boulevard, a crash northbound between the schuylkill expressway and wissahickon avenue. there was an overturned vehicle
,000 deaths in america last year. we need to stand up and say enough. the only way this problem is going to be solved is if we raise our voices. choose help over helplessness, hope over hopelessness. make sure that the lives we've lost will not have been lost in vain. addiction is a disease. when you ask for help, help is there for you.
