6:41 am
mid morning to midday to get the rain. rain at down in south jersey and delaware. here's the hot tip. remember this is going to be a slow change. you'll get snow changing to rain quickly, but freezing rain in between might ice up the roads a little bit and the ice might take longer to melt. when you see the snow earned and the rain starts, don't charge out the door, give it a chance to melt. chris sowers will be on tomorrow morning to get you through that on 6abc. 28 degrees is the high. later tonight, snow overnight and snow gradually changing to ice and rain pretty quickly from south to north through the morning hours, 48 is the afternoon high. sunday, 60 we got more rain. that 60 early in the day. temperatures will drop in the afternoon. it will be chillier in the afternoon. in the 30s monday and tuesday, back to the 40s on wednesday when winter arrives, thursday there can be a morning mix
