"action news", delaware valley's leading news program, with gray hall, nydia han, and meteorologist chris sowers. good afternoon, on this super bowl sunday, february 4th i'm nydia han with gray hall. here's a look at some of the stories we are following
12:01 pm
for you on "action news". >> count down to the super bowl. eagles/patriots rematch in minnesota is coming down. we have live reports from the stadium where one of those teams will be named the super bowl lii champions. plus what would a super bowl win mean for philadelphia eagles react to taking away center city on their shoulders the super bowl celebrations begin, the new restrictionness place to keep local fans and businesses, safe this evening. more on those stories in a moment but first we will turn our attention to the exclusive forecast and meteorologist chris sowers, rain, super bowl sunday, chris. >> for now we are seeing a little bit of snow in the western counties here but majority of this will be rain, just temperatures will be cold enough to support a little bit of that white stuff. winter weather advisory in effect until 10:00 p.m. for counties highlighted here. we are expecting light snow to transition over to a icy mix, sleet, freezing rain but will go over to rain by mid afternoon. could be minor accumulations in this part of the viewing area perhaps a coating to as
12:02 pm
much as an inch here in these area. and because of that there could be slick spots out there storm tracker six very latest here lots of colors showing up on the radar. we have green to the south which is where rain is falling , light snow to the north and right in between here we see sliver of blue. that is where we are seeing a wintry mix of snow, rain and sleet pellets mixed in. this line will lift to the north over next half an hour, so again by mid afternoon it should be all the way up between here north of the pennsylvania turnpike approaching the lehigh valley. wider view shows plenty of moisture out there. this is just the beginning, once the rain starts to move in and it will come down, steady toy occasionally heavy at times, set up a rather messy late afternoon into the early evening hours, and around the region here. temperatures wise and thinks part of the problem this is why advisory has been issued for far western counties we are still below freezing. twenty-nine in kutztown. thirty-one in new holland, 31 pottstown. twenty-nine in slatington. but look what is going on the other side of the delaware river.
12:03 pm
we have milder air moving from the south east, 30's and 40's across south jersey and delaware. so for today accu weather says rain developing, whatever snow you are seeing right now will go over to rain by about 12:30 or 1:00 o'clock. high temperatures around 44. i will be back along in a few minutes and time everything out with future tracker six and i will that have accu weather seven day forecast. >> chris, thank you. super bowl sunday, it is finally here. it is the day eagles fans have been waiting for, all season long. >> yes, could this be the year bird bring home lombardi trophy. they are just one team standing in their way, new england patriots. >> "action news" is live with complete game day coverage. janet reyes is live in mayfair where fans cannot stop talking about the birds. bob brooks has safety precautions going in to place in philadelphia ahead of the game. >> in minnesota sports director ducis rodgers and jamie apody are live outside u.s. bank stadium but first brian taff and sharrie williams inside mall of america where pennsylvania governor tom wolf is spending
