the southwest and this will continue to fill in and block them over the next several hours. now the height of the storm undoubtedly is tomorrow morning. between about 8am and noon and you can see how this area of low pressure moves up the eastern seaboard. a lot of that snow fills in but see those yellows and orange, well, that's rain. so we do have some warmer air that will be mixing into the system and it will be changing the snowfall amounts depending on where you live. so let's take look. we have that blizzard warning in effect to the north and west of philadelphia through the lehigh valley into trenton extending up through north engineers see and of course the poconos where we do think we will see the most snow. we'll call that the red zone. the jackpot zone. so in that blizzard warning area, winds will be sustained we'll see gusts to 35 miles an hour greater for a period of three hours or more. and visibility will be reduced to about a quarter mile or less. we do think we'll see some blizzard conditions north and west of philadelphia during that period of time in the morning during the height of the storm. as we go hour by hour you can
10:03 pm
see how that snow intensifies by about 4:00 a.m. warm air work its way up to the i-95 corridor. the question is, how long does the sleet and rain last? there are some indications that it lingers for about four, maybe five hours before the cold air moves in and changes everything back over to snow and then the storm moves out and we're cleaning out during the mid afternoon and into the evening. so i tweaked the snow amounts somewhat. i just took a few inches down along that i-95 corridor. so instead of eight to 12 i have six to ten still good deal of snow but with more mixing closer to six or 8-inches than 12-inches. but right when you get north and west of the city still talking about ten to 16-inches of snow and that 16 to 24-inch that will come down toward doylestown, into reading new york city allentown and extend up through the poconos as well with lesser accumulation through salem, glassboro and parts of south jersey four to six i do anticipate warm mixing. coming up we'll go county by

10:31 pm
at a bit faster clip here. take look hyped me. you can see some of the snow falling on the cars right there. so that was a minute 14 seconds earlier where we had a difference between no snow and snow now. 20 minutes later you can see significant snowfall here. we're here at lehigh valley international airport where we've had many people getting here flying into town before the big winter storm does cancellations for arriving dean parting flights have already been posted for tomorrow morning. we saw that coming in here. so you may want to check with your airline before doing any travel and as for the roads we can tell that you penndot officials advice you don't travel unless you have to. we saw one contractor spreading salt in an apartment complex and penndot says they have 37 trucks doing salt and plow operations and lehigh county alone. in the region where this part of penndot takes care of things they've got about 200 trucks across the allentown area and
10:32 pm
state officials want you to be advised of governor tom wolf's proclamation of disaster emergency basically saying don't drive unless you have to. and make sure that the road crews can do their work and keep the roads clear. back to you. >> all right. stay safe out there, dave. thanks. we know is on the radar tonight. it is lots of snow. berks county the snow has already started falling. in reading it's another place that could top the 1 foot mark. kathy orr back with the forecast in just 15 seconds. all right. temperatures in the 30s so we're borderline for snow in many locations. we're seeing our two storms converge and you can see development off the coast of north carolina. that will become our nor'easter so all of this moisture ahead of the storm and already snowing
10:33 pm
fairly heavily in allentown and into the poconos and you can see down along the i-95 corridor all this pushing toward the northeast and it will be filling in into philadelphia within the next hour or so. as we go hour by hour, you can see the snow spreads across the whole region overnight. then at about 5:00 a.m. we get warm air being pulled into the system as the storm is organized and moving toward the north and east. we have heavy snow to the north and west of philadelphia through the lehigh valley. philadelphia borderline. south and east seeing a lot of mixing and even rain. this mix could go on for some hours. four hours maybe five hours and back to snow as the storm pulls away and then it finally skits by about 2:00 in the afternoon but the wind will be whipping blowing and drifting snow travel will be treacherous because of this winter storm. snow rates between 8:00 a.m. and 12 noon in northern western suburb area the blizzard warning area we're seeing about two to . also, winds gusting to 45 miles
10:34 pm
an hour. blowing and drifting snow poor visibility and slow go on area roads. when we look at the totals, we're talking 16 to 24-inches of snow in the poconos. allentown, berks county, and into the northern parts of montgomery and also into the northern part of bucks county. ten to 15 to the north and west of the city. philadelphia and into south jersey northern delaware six to 10-inches we'll be seeing mixing for a period of time and then back to snow and then you can see through interior south jersey four to sick inches where you will be seeing sleet and also rain. lower accumulations as you head down the shore just about a coating to even a couple of inches at best. as we look ahead, with tomorrow's nor'easter we're watching the exact track of the storm as it continues to evolve as we speak. how far north will that warm air get? well, that will determine how much snow we see in philadelphia. north and west there's no issue but the i-95 corridor we could see a little more warmth a little less and that will determine if it's sleet and rain
10:35 pm
mixing in which i do think we'll see that i think we'll see it for three or four hours during that mornin rush before we go back to snow. the other issue is going to be the wind and the shore and for more on that let's send it over to monica. >> shore points aren't expecting as much snow as areas inland in pennsylvania. but there's still a big storm headed your way because of that wind and high tide around high tide when we'll see the strongest of winds and coastal flooding is a concern. which is why we have a warning through the jersey shore and down into the delaware beaches for any potential flooding during that high tied with those gusts possibly reaching 65 miles per hour. here's a look at the coastal concerns moderate flooding and even beach erosion. that's another big one. let's take a look at the speed winds. at the height of it when the high tide and winds kick up winds 65 miles per hour all along the jersey shore and down into lewes, delaware. so kathy, again, we inland will be dealing with the wind but not as strong as the shore points.
10:36 pm
>> it is amazing, indeed. so everywhere being impacted now reading right now seeing some light snow falling and you are in the range of about 16 to 22-inches of snow. so very heavy snow expected. so tonight, the snow begins across the area. many locations it's already begun and by 11:00 o'clock we'll see it spreading eastward. during the day tomorrow, snow heavy at times especially in the morning. along the i-95 corridor, south and east, mixing with sleet and also mixing with some rain and then back to snow. wednesday a few snow showers very windy. the temperature only 29. feeling more like january. still cold for thursday. the snow is not going to go aw away. that's for sure. not in the philadelphia area and into the north and west. friday st. patrick's day it's chilly and then temperatures slowly climb saturday, sunday into next monday. but it feels much more like winter. spring just a week away. >> hard to think about right n now. all right. kathy, "good day philadelphia" has got you covered with all the latest on the storm starting at
10:37 pm
