after the storm dumped a foot of snow. and amarillo, ugh, my gosh. crazy stuff. let's go ahead move onto what we have in store here in our area. so here's your storm. yes, little left over snow back here, right now across the arkansas, missouri state border as well as still near the big bend of texas but eventually we will see this storm, not only just make a little bit of left-hand turn here, but will join up with this colder air, starting to drop in. so those two pieces come together and then you have got much more complex system out of t it also means that we're going to ends up with whole mixed bag of different things happening for different communities. look at the winter advisories in effect. currently and coming up here, you can see how it just works its way right up the coils t gives you good sense of where the edge of the northwest section of the storm will be. and our whole region is under a winter weather advisory, as of later on tonight. let's weak you through future weather, too. so walking through the whole day here, the storm will be making its way up the
5:45 am
coastline through really just up through the appalachian range of the mid-atlantic. notice though the leading edge of that air mass is going to be cold enough, because talking 9:00 p.m. 10:00 p.m. tonight, combination of the moisture mover n so see it start with snow, basically everywhere, perhaps chilly mix every rain though down toward the shore points, and that's when we will get our best chance to accumulate this snow. as we look ahead to 1:00 a.m. two, three four, 5:00 a.m. you're going to still find some pretty decent dumping snow. heavy moisture is with. >> this eventually the rain-snow line starts to take over. see that? there will be some icing. also eventually turn over to rain. this is going to start to move away pretty speedily. it makes quick progress. but just because you may have enough cold air, in the northwestern suburbs, you may end one little more snow. it could limit you as the turn-over to rain takes place through philadelphia, and specially offer to the south and east. so, our updated and exclusive snowfall mag pegging one to 3 inches around the i-95 corridor, but real good shot we think for there to be a
5:46 am
sliver of three-five maybe 6 inches. i would actually say we could even drag this line little bit further south into western chester county and mercer county. so, you know, it will be a fine line. there is obviously very sharp gradient hereof what you see. you could see double the snowfall from philly up to allentown. but that said, we're all getting in on it, all going see something, all going have winter weather advisories. break sunday, don't bling sunday night next system here. i think it will make a mess of the morning drive monday with more light snow. yes, more, vittoria. >> not pumped about it, katie you know how i feel about it, but those are the cards we're dealt w we'll hands t just like we'll handle what's happening on the load whales. not too much. we do have incident on the schuylkill we'll get to in just a second. traveling right now on the roosevelt, southbound commuting, do have few more vehicles jumping on the roadway, but real now major delays only 5:46. usually don't see the bubble of a rush hour, until about 6:15 or soy. so we have little time. unfortunately, for the schuylkill expressway, it is a little bit different. eastbound on 76, we have
5:47 am
incident overturned vehicle accident, at the onramp to the eastbound 76 side from gulph mills. as you will notice, traffic still using the onramp, but you do have emergency teams on scene. the last time i looked at this shot it, did look like tow truck was none -- now on scene to remover the overturned vehicle right up on the embankment here, causing bit of gaper delay. still have flares on the gown, still very active scene if you are traveling in that area. i would suggest avoiding it if you are jumping on the eastbound side of the schuylkill. try and get on before or after that point. and, also, watch out for accident, in montgomery county, this is at ridge pike, north lane, police directing traffic due to malfunctioning traffic lights as a result of that accident. ukee erika? >> the words is milestone. >> daytime celebrating its 7,000 episode of the bowl and the beautiful. and to show their fan appreciation don who plays bill spencer, he is going to host a viewing screening party at parx casino. two lucky guests will even get
