6:16 am
than 2-inch's way from their all time record snowfall for a season of 107.9 inches of snow. so no matter what you are complaining about today with the snow at least we're in the boston. 12 degrees in philadelphia very close to the record but that is going to end up being the low for the day, because the the record is ten, i don't think we will even tie the record but we've got single digit temperatures, in many places, and that is cold enough. but then you factor in the win, the wind out of the north where cold air is coming from. this is air particular air that moved in as soon as the snowstorm was gone late in the day yesterday, the cold air rush in and so you factor in the wind and here is what it feels like outside. zero. in philadelphia. so remember that if you are going to need to shovel some snow this morning, especially but really any time during the day take frequent breaks because with the wind chill this low it doesn't take long to start to get symptoms of frostbite. it is this sunday march 8th at
6:17 am
2:00 a.m. that we will spring ahead. it is start of the daylight savings time. turn your clocks ahead one hour. so 2:00 o'clock will become 3:00 o'clock and in essence you lose that hour of sleep. that is a bummer but look at the non-bummer temperatures that we have coming up in that seven day forecast. it is a gradual warming trend which is nice because it will gradually melt the snow that fell yesterday but not today, not too much melting going on with a high of 27. tomorrow we are up to 38 not the quite as harsh. we will have sunshine. forty-four on sunday. forty-six on monday. forty-eight on tuesday, and then into the 50's, on wednesday, and thursday that is a lot to look forward to but today bob kelly, i don't think we can give people enough reminders about cleaning off a car. i saw a knuckle head this morning that didn't down their back windshield. >> don't you just want to lay on the horn and pull them over right there and issue them
6:18 am

good morning, welcome back at 6:42. let's recap our top story this morning. a philadelphia police officer is dead after being shot. police say officer robert wilson the third died while inside a game stop store in north philadelphia yesterday afternoon. two suspects came in, tried to rob the the store, when the the deadly violence erupted. >> now the two suspects are now in custody, one of the suspects was injured at a gunfire was exchanged with police but he is expected to be okay. this is a story we will continue to cover for you this morning and our thoughts and prayers are with the family with the police department, and just a terrible story. >> 6:42 is the time.
6:43 am
sue, might we set a dubious record today. >> in some places we will but probably not the in philadelphia, we will check numbers in just a few minutes but lets talk about how much snow fell in philadelphia and where we stand. we had 68 inches of snow. so far this season 23 inches. this could end up being it for this season. we have nothing in the short term in the next seven days at least as far as snowfall is concern. so 7.5 inches gave us 23 inches for the season so far. the that is right around the annual average which is close to 22. this would be a typical winter, whatever that means. at least we're not in boston where they are closing in on their record of 107 inches for this season. i know. so, zero, that is the actual temperature. in trenton it is eight. three in allentown. one in mount pocono. is there your 12 in philadelphia, record is ten. we will probably not tie that record, it is 14 in wildwood, nine in atlantic city.
6:44 am
here are your win speed we have to factor that in because if we are outside for any length of time today the wind chill, is important and it the is low, all of these wind chills are low. eight below is what it feels like in pottstown. twelve below in lancaster. feels like zero here in the city, ten below in mount pocono, three below zero in dover, delaware. that is cold out there. even though the sunnies coming out, this is where you'll say okay, it the is really cold. daylight savings time thinks weekend when we will springford so 2:00 o'clock becomes 3:00 o'clock in the morning which means we will end up lose ago this hour of sleep over the weekend but it does give us later afternoon more daylight during the the day the the way things are configured and it means it is another sign that spring is getting closer. here's another sign temperatures warming up just a bit in the seven day forecast. not today ape in the quite as harsh tomorrow but still cold
6:45 am
with the high of 38. forty-four on sunday. in the 40's monday and tuesday, and then in the 50's, for wednesday and thursday of next week. so is there at least something to look forward to but with no snowstorms in the the forecast, with no ice and all that, would be kelly, i don't know what we will do next week. >> we will come up with things to keep you busy. we will have flooding issues that will be the next thing. >> true. >> live look at route 309 where we come to the intersection, coming to the intersection, still some patches of snow even on the roadways that were plowed and they look cleaned don't get that false sense of security. here's an intersection at 202 at county line road. 202 northbound, we will go from nice and clean near route 29, but once you hit chesterbrook i don't know what happened, to the plow trains because it is still, that packed down and partially snow covered. owe again, you're rolling long and all of a sudden bam you will hit snow patches. maybe snow falling from the theresa above. i nose you'll have that
6:46 am
