PHILADELPHIA (CBS) — Expect a wild week of weather in the Delaware Valley. A messy mix of precipitation fell Monday morning.
Light snow, sleet and freezing rain will eventually change over to all rain this afternoon as warmer air moves in. Untreated roads and walkways are slippery, so give yourself extra time when heading out but highways are mainly wet.
Rain will taper off this evening and temperatures will climb to near 50 degrees as we head into Tuesday.
Another surge of warm air will arrive on Wednesday and the mercury will soar above 60 degrees ahead of our next storm system. Along with the mild temperatures on Wednesday, there will also be a gusty breeze with locally heavy rain and the chance for a thunderstorm as a potent cold front moves through.
Thursday and Friday will turn colder again and temperatures will fall back into the 30s by the weekend.
Additional snow showers are possible on Sunday morning with a weak clipper system.
