PHILADELPHIA (CBS) — Give yourself a little extra time heading out this morning. A quick hitting system is bringing rain and wet snow to the Delaware Valley.

Snow amounts will be modest, with 1-3″ expected through the Lehigh Valley and a coating to an inch expected across the northwestern suburbs of Philadelphia.

Traffic was expected to be slower than usual with reduced visibility and slippery spots on area roads, but most of the accumulation will be on grassy and non-paved surfaces.

Areas south of Philadelphia will see mainly rain.

A winter weather advisory remains in effect for Pennsylvania counties north and west of the city through this afternoon.

The storm moves out of here by this evening, leaving a cold wind.  Temperatures will then drop below the freezing point and that means icy spots will develop.

Mostly sunny skies will return Wednesday with highs in the mid 40s and sunshine will continue through the end of the week.

We’re looking at milder weather by the weekend!
