PHILADELPHIA (CBS) — Here is the latest update on this weekend’s storm.

Timing the Storm:

The storm begins as snow Saturday morning, between 9 a.m.-11 a.m.

Snow accumulates 1-3” in Philadelphia, then will transition to a mix around 7 p.m.

Snow continues N & W until 9/10 p.m. Then ends as a mix even in the Lehigh Valley early Sunday morning.

Sunday skies will clear, the high, near 40.

The Breakdown:

Philadelphia, I-95 Corridor

Expect around 1-3″ of accumulation. By evening, the freezing line will migrate north, allowing the snow to mix with sleet and rain Late Saturday night, rain will start to take over, but roads and walkways could still be icy. The storm will wind down completely early Sunday morning.

*Army Navy Gameday Forecast:

It looks like another snowy scene at Lincoln Financial Field! Temperatures will hover right around freezing for the 3 p.m. kickoff, and light snow will fall through most of the game. (Don’t forget, you can watch the game from the comfort of your warm couch on CBS3!)

Northwest Suburbs…A WINTER STORM WARNING for our far N & W suburbs, Lehigh Valley and Poconos (6-8”)

Expect between 3-6″ depending on location. The highest terrain may see as much as 8″. Snow will begin here first (no later than 9 a.m. Saturday) and continue all day. Eventually, a changeover to a wintry mix will take place, generally around 10 p.m.-midnight.

There may still be some icing early Sunday morning before the storm makes its full retreat.

The precipitation may begin as a mix, but that will quickly change to rain, some heavy as the day progresses.
