go through sunday night, this will be pretty much all day and all night with this thing as temperatures get colder, we city the snow moving into new jersey and delaware. we expect accumulations. now the lowest accumulations would be in new jersey and delaware. this is for a chance of 4 inches or more sunday into sunday night. low in new jersey and delaware because of the mixing we expect. a medium chance of that 4 inches or more through the philadelphia area. higher chance north and west through the lehigh valley. so the timing of it, we expect snow by noon, some models are trying to speed this up. by noon we should certainly be seeing snow falling. random mix likely in new jersey and delaware, accumulation more likely later in the day sunday. snow will melt at the start. as we get colder late sunday we see it stick to roads. for your monday morning drive, needless to say, icy spots and are area, especially north and west for your morning commute. for today, windy and warm, temperatures in the low 60s. a nice friday.
