Winter Weather Advisory: Wintry Mix Expected Overnight

Posted February 07, 2018

An area of low pressure will quickly sweep across Iowa into IL during the day Monday, spreading a swath of accumulating snow across the entire area.

Right now, it appears as though the onset of the precipitation should kick off around daybreak or slightly before.

WEDNESDAY: Snow will move out after "Daybreak", and we will see quiet weather for most of the day.

After a wintry weekend, the Chicago area will see another round of snow Monday afternoon, leaving behind 3-5 inches in most locations. So for the Interstate 95 corridor including the Delaware Valley and lower Bucks/Mont, expect a coating to up to an inch of snow and ice before a changeover to rain. New snow accumulation of less than one inch possible.

The National Weather Service has issued a winter storm watch from late Tuesday night through Wednesday evening for portions of central Pennsylvania including all of Centre County. Tonight there is a slight chance, 20 percent, of snow showers after 4 a.m. early Tuesday morning.

Temperatures will also be cold, with temperatures around 17 degrees by late afternoon and wind chills dropping to around zero.

One calling for heavy snow in northern CT and another for a mixed bag of snow, sleet, and rain in the south. A purely rain event is unlikely at this point for the Poconos. It looks like amounts would be light and the weather should improve again Sunday. Snow is likely everywhere before changing over to a period of ice (sleet and freezing rain) and then rain. While there could be some wintry mix at the onset, this looks like mostly rain for much of the area given the milder temperatures.

Thursday: Mostly sunny, with a high at 54.

The spot that really looks to luck out, depending how you look at it for this event, is the southern Jersey and DE areas of the region.

Just as school superintendents are looking out the window tomorrow morning to decide on a snow day, the first flakes will begin falling on what forecasters believe will be a mixed bag of precipitation, beginning with snow and ending sometime Wednesday night with rain.

SUNDAY: Snow and rain likely. Rain across South Jersey could be heavy at times though.

Wednesday, a chance of snow showers before 8 a.m.

The winter precipitation accumulations will have some impact on travel.
