PHILADELPHIA (CBS) — Latest model runs indicate that we could see a more pronounced period of freezing rain early Saturday morning along the I-95 corridor including Center City which could yield ice accumulations up to .10″. This will create hazardous conditions on the roadways and sidewalks.
Prior to the changeover to freezing rain and sleet, a coating to 2″ of snow is possible in the city and surrounding counties with the higher end totals to the north and west. 2-4″ of snow is possible in the Lehigh Valley with 4-6″ possible in the Poconos, along with ice accumulations of up to .10″.
Snow showers will commence across the area after midnight with a period of steady snow probable in Philadelphia from 4 a.m. to 7 a.m. A wintry mix of freezing rain, sleet and snow is most likely between 7 a.m. to 10 a.m, with the precipitation changing to all rain thereafter, with the rain tapering off in the afternoon.
A Winter Weather Advisory is in effect for the Jersey Shore and Delaware until 9 a.m Saturday, Philadelphia and surrounding counties until 11 a.m, Berks county and the Lehigh Valley until 2 p.m. and the Poconos until 6 p.m. Saturday.
