that is a thing of the past. the clouds are thinning out and we're going to start seeing the sunshine breaking through most of the neighborhoods here. this is what you can expect. slush or ice north and west neighborhoods early on this morning is possible. take it slow as you drive out there. for the rest of us, wet roadways. some of the roads i was talking about, this was hours ago in philadelphia. they were drying out. we don't have huge concerns. we're warming up the temperatures today. right back into the 40s. that means daytime melts for those spots with accumulating snow. grab the shades. we're looking at a lot of sunshine after getting out. going to be a good day to do so. 46 in summerton. westchester 46. high pressure building into the area. i love high pressure because it warms the temperatures up and keeps us dry. in allentown, no more snow to add to it. with a 44 for a forecast high. 46 degrees. ocean city at 49.
6:50 am
this is scattered clouds. for the most part, sunny conditions. run through the hour-by-hour model, chilly this morning to the 40s this afternoon. this model shows us, not a thing to track out there. not even clouds to worry about this afternoon. as you're driving to work, things will be fine and dry. temperatures around freezing. as we get to lunchtime, the clouds are thickening up. in the afternoons, that's when rain showers move in. just rain. we'll be too warm across the board for anything else. i think we'll be about 50s. i-95 corridor south. that is not going to allow for anything but rain. into the evening, we get to your tuesday. tuesday take a look at this. 72 degrees for the forecast high. wednesday at 78. both days looking to hit records for warmth. then wet pattern does return just in time for next weekend. this is sports desk.
