For the second weekend in a row, travelers across the Philadelphia region were dealing with a slick commute after snow and rain fell on area roads overnight.
CBS Philly has received numerous community cancellations for Saturday, January 24th, 2015.

After a beautiful Delaware Valley sunrise, clouds have begun to overspread the region. Any remaining sunshine will be limited for the remainder of the day. On the plus side, temperatures will top out a bit above average, and won’t be accompanied by the same sharp breeze we had Monday.
Prevent frostbite and hypothermia in your pets by keeping all your animals warm this winter.
The most likely spot for any measurable snow is Southern Delaware, with Sussex county potentially seeing a coating to an inch.
