4:48 am
some dry air that we had in place from yesterday. but it won't take long before we start to see something out there. meanwhile, temperatures, critical, as to the type of precipitation, we will get. 33 degrees in philadelphia, only degree above freezing, then right at freezing in wilmington. so initially, it could be a little dicey. then we're in the 20's in pottstown, allentown, up to mount pocono, speccing it to stay snow there. eventually though as we look at the future cast, watch the temperatures, here we are with 33 degrees at 6:00. still little tricky. thirty-four in wilmington, now see the line between the rain and the snow move little further northward. we get above freezing to 34 in philadelphia. and we move into the 30's up in pottstown, allentown, so eventually we will see the snow change over to rain there, as well. but it will happen over a couple of critical hours when folks are trying to get to work. those who are working this week. we know it is a popular week to take off. but not everybody did. 41 degrees by 9:00. so we've definitely changed over to rain by then.
4:49 am
and we see the rain-snow line moving ever northward, stays kind of snowy in the mountains as we have a rainy, early afternoon, and it is all gone by about 2:00, 3:00. so again, if you can leave either now, or little bit later, probably be your best bet. eventually though very cold air settles in after this. so as we see in the # day forecast, big drop in temperature tomorrow. we start off with very cold temperatures in the morning, then 39 degrees, with the winds picking up, it will be very blustery during the day, could even see flurry or two, because of the lake effect. 43 degrees new years eve. eventually getting down into the 20's, probably we start off though 37 degrees in the morning, for the mummers parade. and then eventually up to 49. so not a bad new years day, at all, just don't forget about the winter weather advisory if you are traveling up in the mountains this morning, karen, thomas? >> looks good, sue, thank you. time is 4:49. about to say good-bye to the white house, apparently a lot of people are sorry to see him
