into portions of ohio. as this moves our way it's going to lift to the north and could clip our far north and west counties with a few flurries tomorrow morning that's about it and this system moves out. our next storm then will take over and that gets here as we head into wednesday. so temperatures right now on the cold side certainly teens in allentown and millville, 27 in philadelphia, 8 in mount pocono. winds are kind of light and variable. the winds have died down. the wind chill was a big factor in today's cold, not as windy tonight. that helps a little bit. clouds increasing, our low bottoming out about 24. tomorrow flurries north and west to start with that system i just showed you, increasing sun, clouds in the morning to sunshine in the afternoon. we're going to set this into motion, you can start off with tomorrow morning, there's that system i just showed you with a few flakes, light snow showers or flurries down through the poconos and to the l high valley. as we head into wednesday morning our next system
approaches. it starts with a warm front passage that's going bring some snow. here's 6:00 a.m. wednesday shifting over the city, at 7:00 wednesday morning a little bit of ice and rain as you head down the shore. this could be some school delays for parts of the areas as you head up into the poconos and the lehigh valley the snow will linger and may even change to sleet or freezing rain for a time. the this particular model has a lull in the action in philadelphia before rain and warm air starts to flood in. you can see heavy rain will follow that morning mix and it will continue through the afternoon. 3:00 p.m. steady rainfall and possibly even a thunderstorm as the cold front moves through. you can see a pretty nasty looking squall line coming through around 6:00 p.m. we can go from a icy, snowy morning commute to a stormy, rainy commute but regardless of entire day wednesday looks awful to be out and about and clears the coast by 8:00 setting the stage for a colder but drier thursday in time for the parade.
heavy snow to a late day mix in the poconos to the lehigh valley. light snow half inch to an inch perhaps in philadelphia and change over to rain, heavy rain in the afternoon and this is mainly rain for south jersey and delaware. concern about icing especially north west where we get that prolonged period of freezing rain or sleet on wednesday morning p wednesday is not a great day to be out on the roads. thursday looks a whole lot better for the eagles parade. it is mostly sunny, blustery and cold. temperatures only in the 30s. wind chills only in the teens. so again, it's not an ideal day to be standing out for hours, but you know, it's not too bad. at least the body heat and the energy and excitement will keep everybody pumped up, keep everybody warm. friday a stray snow shower and it does start to warm up over the weekend. >> it's going to be tight. >> leslie is back with more sports. >> that's right. fans and there are real fans.
