they're still dealing with tidal flooding. another nor'easter is potentially on the way for wednesday and this too could bring rain, accumulating snow and another bout of strong, gusty winds. in the meantime here's some good news this morning. we really don't have any true arctic air in place. we still have snow on the ground from the nor'easter mainly north and west of philadelphia but temperatures are above freezing. so whatever slick spots you're seeing out there should be very, very limited. it's 37 in allentown, millville 38, dover, 39 and cape may 38 degrees. here's the coastal flood advisory, the entire shoreline. high tide occurs between 8:45 and 9:45 this morning and the national weather service is stating that the tidal run anywhere one and a half to two
feet above levels. and this evening's high tide will be a little bit better here as the storm continues to pull away. so far off the coast now you don't even see it. this is just a tail end of cloud cover. today we're looking at a combination of sun and clouds it shouldn't be that bad. here's the nor'easter, these are what's called isobars. the tighter the lines are, the windier. this is windy, this is breezy. this is the second storm that we're watching. the storm that will get in here by mid week. it looks harmless enough. but what happens as it hits the coast we get another nor'easter developing here. the question is how close to the coast will the low develop. the closer it is the greater the impacts. the farther off the shore it is.
it looks like it will head northeast and bury new england. right now the general idea is increasing confidence for this developing nor'easter on wednesday. it looks like rain to snow and some of it could be plowable, especially well north and west of the city. not quite as intense as what we just dealt with. we had 60-70 miles per hour winds on friday so a little bit better. 46 degrees, winds are out of the north northwest at 15-25 miles per hour and overnight tonight partly cloudy, brisk and cold. 26 degrees, outlying suburbs, 29 for center city. the next few days actually look okay. chilly but not bad. sun and clouds today, monday and tuesday and wednesday. tuesday that potential for that nor'easter, thursday and friday and saturday all look good.

couple of days. all right. that takes us into the mid week nor'easter or the potential for a mid week nor'easter. we have a couple of scenarios here. a secondary low develops right here off the coast. the big question is going to be how far off the coast this low is. let's assume for a second this scenario, that the low is hugging the coast then your impacts are going to be felt like this. the entire coast line from new jersey all the way up to maine. it will be a pretty good nor'easter with rain and snow and gusty winds. there's another model that take the secondary low and develop it much farther off the coast. so then your surface maps would look something like this, with this low coming up. but then your impacts are only felt maybe the immediate shoreline here. so this would be less of a blow if the track is acts if the track was that far off the coast. the greater this is off the
coast, the greater the chances are of snow. it could be a plowable snow. we'll have to wait and see how close to the coast this low develops. >> "a wrinkle in time" won't be out until later this week, but she made sure her hometown got to see it first. she posted on twitter that she held a special screening, because compton has no movie theaters. disney of course the parent company of 6abc. >> on this oscar sunday we are going back in time showing you the huge role the delaware valley has played in shaping the movie industry. and alicia vitarelli has details on a special show today at noon. >> reporter: philly in focus, the birth of motion pictures shines a spotlight on the local motion picture pioneers who
