38 degrees until 7:00 o'clock and now we're just hitting 37. so we're lowering those temperatures with that northeasterly wind ushering in that colder air. so it's 36 degrees for those of us in reading. 40 degrees back in millville. 37 degrees for those of us in wrightstown. because our temperatures are starting to lower, we're talking about snow. some of us are at that freezing mark a little bit above it. which is why this isn't going to be a clean snow if anything does fall it could be bit of a mix. a snow to sleet to some snow her's a look at your current setup. starting to push into the delaware valley reaching into some of our western counties. looking at your current setup here's the low pressure system. where this low pressure system is in relation to us, is putting us under those northwesterly winds. so i'll draw that for you that's that counterclockwise rotation. that we see behind low pressure systems. so here's that northwesterly wind. that's really pushing some of that colder air down towards the south.
