Heavy snowstorm takes aim at the Northeast
"On being joined by my friend and colleague, NBC 10 meteorologist Steve Sasa and Steve. It's just absolutely amazing the power of the storm. Can you explain to us because it's been a while the difference between a nor'easter him just a regular run of the mill snowstorm because this is different. Yes, nor'easters around here typically formed during this time of year you get into the late fall winter and early spring and what they are our coastal storms, But the wind direction with that, Because of the position of where the storm is, comes out of the north and east And typically you think of a nor'easter. You think big snow, big rain, big wind, and that's all the elements that the storm has along with that strong northeast wind, So that definitely falls into the category of a nor'easter. So it really just depends. Where you live. What? You're going to get out of this storm, and it really will be. Ah, variety of weather in Philadelphia right now we have heavy snow out through the suburbs. Have your snow in Westchester. Coatesville. Heavy snow now up to northeast Philly. Doylestown. You've seen the snow pick up now, Over the last hour or so you're visibly down to about 8 10 7 Mile and as far north as up in Berks County, So if you're doing any traveling from Philadelphia up through the suburbs right now, it is rather difficult in the reason why what we had temperatures slightly. Above freezing right around 10 11 o'clock in the morning, But as soon as that snow started coming down, it acted like Because what happens is is that rate of snow kind of overcomes the treatment on the roadway.

The heaviest band right now, though, is in northern Delaware, and that will be moving into Philadelphia within the next hour. With that blinding snowfall likely And eventually, as we move into the leader, afternoon hours, I'm talked about 45 o'clock. We're going to start to see some sleet mixing in and eventually maybe some freezing rain and plain old rain. On the I 95 corridor. So I'm talking about Chester, Philadelphia up to maybe the Northeast there, but north and west of there that snow and sleet may continue for a good while longer. So up through like lower marry in areas like Warminster over to Buckingham and down the Coatesville. You could stay snow all the way well through the evening hours and pick up several more inches of accumulation. So the long story short in this, It's going to be very messy, Sloppy travel. We have heavy right. And at the shore right now you're looking at wind gusts later this evening of 50 to 60 MPH. There could be some power outages even and around the Philadelphia area with the so the sleep and the freezing rain with wind gusts. 30 to 40 MPH. We may start to see some power outages to that would be after about five or six o'clock this evening through the early overnight hours. Make sure that you have your devices charged up a way to get information on this storm as it evolves, But the timeline it's here. Right now It's going to be pretty bad. Now. From now through, it's a leak deceive. Being and then we'll start to see things improve as we head into towards

Vineyards Facing An Insect Invasion May Turn To Aliens For Help
"Bug recently arrived from China is munching its way across eastern Pennsylvania from there. It's poised to spread across much of the country. Killing trees and grapevines finds so scientists are considering something drastic importing other insects the bugs natural enemies from the place it came from NPR's. Dan Charles has the story. I was walking around the park near Allentown Pennsylvania and I didn't even notice the bugs at first then heather leach arrived the insect expert Berg from Penn state but if you take under these leaves sure enough they're climbing up underneath the ivy and then I realized they're all over. This tree spotted lantern flies. A marching column of gray bugs each one about an inch long black spots on their wings sucking sap from the tree. They're kind of ugly especially. When there's thousands of them you'll start to poke at them and you'll see how strong hopper there you see that they've just take off could be entertaining. You see a lot of kids running around playing with them trying to stomp on them spotted lantern flies. I showed up in the United States five years ago right here in Berks County. Nobody knows exactly how some eggs probably hitched a ride on shipping containers across the specific. Now there are hordes of spreading across Pennsylvania and beyond chances are they'll eventually reach most of the country. It's an insect that lays its eggs on on anything including things that get transported hops onto vehicles and can hold on. They don't seem to have any natural enemies here but they found lots of trees with sapped that they like. They've got a buffet out here if they can eat all of these plants and they don't have anything that's down so they're having a good time. They're having a party right. Heather Leach gets panicked calls for people with swarms of lantern flies on their houses or their trees. She tells them don't freak out. These bugs won't bite or sting but but they're not a joke either they really can destroy fix and the people who are seeing this first our vineyard owners like John. Landis vine crest winery west of Allentown uh-huh going. Landis is pressing grapes smiling. Harvest is a good time. He says but then I asked him about the Lantern Flies Anthony Turns series. We've never had a situation like this and forty years. If you start to decimate your vineyard we can cause people to go out of the wiring business. It's actually actually killed funds. Oh yeah definitely kills wise. We walk out into the Vineyard and sure enough. The section next to the woods is infested with lantern flies a lot of vines. It's our dead already. From last year's attack we had lantern pipe just kind of pouring out of these trees last year invading this area here and then down on this hill vineyard owners can spray insecticides protect their crop but that's costly and it can kill helpful insects like bees and ladybugs also it doesn't help with the bigger problem. The damage lantern flies can cause to whole ecosystems leach scientists or worried. They might kill off some trees in forests were also starting to see early indications of displacement of other insects and as a result displacement of birds as well but maybe she says if the problem came from China the solution Russian could to you see back in China. The lantern fly has natural enemies that hold it in check tiny wasps so small you can barely see them scientists from the US this department of Agriculture have brought two kinds of these wasps to the United States. They're under quarantine and a couple of USDA labs like the beneficial insect introduction laugh in Newark Delaware to USDA scientists. Amanda Stout and Kim homer lead the way into the quarantine room. We're all suited up in white overalls head to toe now. Next door is high security this quarantine zone. It's filled with these environmental chambers. They look like big refrigerators. homer opens opens one up and points me towards something in sealed containers. There's a little white thing about a quarter of an inch long with a dark in there that just the cocoon. This is one stage in the life cycle of a lantern flight killing wasp. The wasp lays eggs inside baby spotted lantern flies called nymphs the eggs hatch into larvae that feet on the nips and kilter so maybe they could do this outside. The lab in Pennsylvania's forests sounds kind of crazy releasing an invader to fight another invader but homer says really it could work. There are many many examples of successful and safe introduction of natural enemies. He says it's best when the natural enemies a specialist when it only tax invasive species you're trying to control so now he's trying to figure out whether these wasps only lay their eggs in lantern flies or if they attack. North America's native insects to getting answers. We'll take years in the meantime. The lantern flies will keep on moving. Dan Charles N._p._R. News.

"Forecasts and on that radar the activity seems to be moving, but those temperatures will be dropping. Right. So this is phase two of the bad news weather department. We had the rain tonight. And now, the rain is out of here. But it's a blast of cold. It is going to be a January like weekend around here because not only will temperatures be below average. But it's going to feel like it's in the thirties. Even in the twenties at times tomorrow with the wind very blustery and feeling again like mid winter. Let's take a look outside. We'll start shop on storms game three as we were saying the worst of the rain is now off the coast. It's moving quickly away from here. So this storm was good at least and that on that note it moved in quickly. It's moving out quickly. It was mostly a late day system. The worst between about four and seven o'clock. And now most of the. Rain is out of here. There will be a couple of scattered showers on the back edge of that system overnight. But as we head into the weekend high pressure builds in, but as that low moves away, we've got these tightly stacked lines of pressure these tightly stacked isobars, and what that will give you is a very strong, gusty wind. Creates a pressure gradient. It's kind of like a tunnel effect and the winds really accelerate through that zone between the high and the low winds will be blustery tomorrow. Winds could gust over thirty miles an hour, and then temperatures really drop once the wind dies down tomorrow night. So high pressure builds in heading into your Saturday, very very blustery winds again gusting to thirty five miles an hour at times and highs only in the forties, both Saturday and Sunday. But take a look at these wind chills because when you wake up tomorrow morning at eight AM, here's what it will feel like freezing in the city. It'll feel like the twenties low twenty s across the Lehigh valley in Berks county, it'll feel like nineteen Malka. No. And it doesn't get much better all day long, three o'clock, it still feels no better than freezing still feels like the twentieth to the north and west. That's gonna stick around tomorrow evening feeling like the twenties all across.
