at your commute. good morning. >> well, it is another cold one to start out and we have app possibility of some wintry precipitation up north later tonight. let's start with that. a winter weather advisory kicks in at 6 o'clock in our northern suburbs including northern bucks, northern montgomery counties, the lehigh valley, berks county and on up into the poconos. this will gradually expire later this evening from south to north. might take until about 2 o'clock in the morning until it drops up in the poconos and the issue is that as precipitation comes from the north and west it could begin as some snow or some light freezing rain which is always the most difficult precipitation in the winter for drivers and for pedestrians as it looks like rain but it's freezing up on the surface and you can get slipping and sliding. any time after about 6 o'clock or 7 o'clock if you do see precip look out for it to be the frozen variety up there. warm air sweeps in from the south temperatures rise and later tonight we see it change or to all rain. looks like there could be some early sun but like yesterday, the clouds are going to get thick fairly quickly and then there's some precipitation out to the west right now pittsburgh seeing some snow. i think most that of dries out
before it gets here later this evening though we get that northern tier precip that i just talked about. 15 degrees on the bus stop in philadelphia, just 9 degrees in trenton. 13 in allentown. 17 reading. 15 in wilmington. 28 degrees a little bit milder as that southerly flow brings in milder air right off the ocean. and there's not much wind out there so we really don't have to worry about any wind chill this morning. obviously though when you got temperatures in the teens you bundle up. 15 degrees by 7 o'clock. 33 by noon. now your high today is going to be 38 but we won't hit it until later tonight. probably won't get there until, oh, let's tap that, probably until about 9 o'clock tonight, okay, so that's your high. we slowly climb toward it today. a fair amount of clouds through the day. and then later this evening we have that precipitation of the frozen variety up north. karen, mild air is on the way, back tomorrow and especially thursday. details ahead. >> all right we've been waiting for that mild air. come on, let's get to it. looking outside live on i-95, this is at academy. that's your southbound traffic headed towards center city.

"action news" reporter coastal storm center city lie at the frankford transportation center near the scene of all this violence. katherine. >> reporter: matt, that's right, two people were robbed right around the same time. they gave similar descriptions of the suspects. both were assaulted. the second victim was shot. the first one happened after an 18-year-old walked after getting off a bus that the frankford transportation center at frankford and pratt. she walked down frankford and was robbed. the second robbery happened about a block away from that. just before 1:00 a.m., aria frankford hospital notified police that a 30-year-old man walked into the emergency room. he'd been shot in the hip twice and was in stable condition. the victim told officers that while he was walking down the 5000 block of griscom street, three men wearing masks all carrying guns tried to rob him. there was a fourth man in a white car serving as a get
away driver. the victim refused to hand over his property and that's when police say one of the suspects shot him two times. he also has severe facial bruises from being assaulted. while police were at the hospital interviewing him, an 18-year-old woman was being treated for facial injuries in the same emergency room. she told police she was robbed at gunpoint on the 5100 block of frankford avenue a block or so away from the frankford transportation center. she was assaulted and they took her cell phone and cash. the description of the suspects she provided matched the description given by the other victim. >> she describes the perpetrators as three males wearing masks. two had handguns. one had a shotgun. there was a fourth male, the get away driver. they described the vehicle as a white possible chevy impala. they believe it was 2004 for the year. >> reporter: and that white car was last seen going south on griscom.

the last couple days my concerned i turned it on and it was like, nah. storm tracker6 live double scan shows thus despite the cold we are dry this morning so you don't have to worry about any snow other than the icy stuff that's already on the surface from the snow we had the other day. as we take a look outside we have sky6. there's city hall looking right down ben franklin parkway and across the love park area and it is cold out there and if you see anybody walking around early this morning in these shots, they are very likely bundled up with the hoods and everything else. 15 degrees currently in philadelphia. at least the winds aren't all that strong out of the east at only 3 miles per hour so we don't really have any real severe wind chills but temperatures are severe without that, though. could be some early sunshine, clouds look like they're going to sweep in from the west pretty quickly this morning and there is some snow out in pittsburgh that probably falls apart before it gets here later this evening however, we do get some precipitation off in the northern tier and that could be a little freezing rain tonight and maybe some light snow.
more on that in a second. today's forecast, 16 degrees by 8 o'clock. 24, staying cold by 10 o'clock and by noon just above the freezing mark. notice today's high is 38 but i don't have it listed here anywhere. what's going on? look at how numbers keep rising. doesn't look like we'll hit that 38 until about 8 o'clock or 9 o'clock tonight so temperatures slowly on the rise with a southerly flow but staying pretty cold most of the day. high temperatures across the region will mainly be in the evening. 35 degrees in allentown, 38 in philadelphia. 38 in wilmington. 40 in millville and in cape may. and as we take a look at that precipitation, 5 o'clock it doesn't look like there's a lot going on. the latest model runs actually keep this arriving snow and freezing rain mix all the way to the north and west of the region as lates 9 o'clock. they're their actually is a chance that it comes in sooner, say, 6, 7 o'clock but the bottom line is if you're in these northern areas and you start to see precipitation, if it's snow of course you slow down but if it looks like rain you slow down,, too because it will be cold enough up in these
northern areas for a good portion of the evening and overnight for it to fall as freezing rain and that's the stuff that turns to ice as it hits the surface looks like rain but it can give you a lot of trouble. by 11 o'clock still looks like we're fairly mild or fairly cold i mean and there could be some snow and maybe some of that freezing rain but by one, 2:00 a.m., even points as far north as the poconos that warm air continues to surge in and it looks like everything changeovers to rain. association the big issue would be this evening and maybe in through the early overnight hours from about pottstown and quakertown north with some light freezing rain about a tenth of an inch of ice and maybe a half inch to inch of snow mixed in up in these areas. again, it all changes over to rain later in the overnight hours. then tomorrow morning your roads might be a little wet. by 6:00 a.m., most of our passing rain is off the coast but perhaps a little wet for the beginning of the morning rush hour. your seven-day from accuweather, today we are looking at a high of 38 but not until later tonight. and then later this evening you've got that freezing rain and snow chance before a changeover to rain. mostly cloudy and milder on
wednesday, some early rain possible. it should ends quickly but the big story tomorrow will be an improved temperature of 51 in the afternoon. the pick of the week, however, is thursday. clouds and sun, very mild. it will be a bit breezy but a high of 60. isn't that nice? then friday a couple of showers around, more clouds build back in, a high of 53 which that sounds good except i think temperatures will dip during the afternoon and then brisk and cold with a late rain or wintry mix event on saturday into sunday morning. >> we will deal. thank you david. 5:42. all new on "action news" a michigan man gets a parking ticket even though he was parked in his own drive way. hear about the unusual ordinance next. >> not so funny. a plan could face charges for a frozen zombie prank on facebook. karen. >> we have a new accident. you can see the flashing lights in delaware county right on the blue route. we'll have the latest on this. check on that accident in delaware county and talk construction in cherry hill when we come back. >> ♪
