PHILADELPHIA (CBS) — High temperatures today reached the 50s and even 60 degree mark in some locations, making it feel like early Spring. However, a cold front moving through the region will bring back colder air to the Delaware Valley tonight and Monday.
Expect rain showers to arrive overnight but change over to freezing rain, then light snow in the N&W suburbs from North to South on Monday, as colder temperatures return. Winter weather advisories will be in effect on Monday for Philadelphia, surrounding suburbs up through the Poconos.
As surface temperatures fall to near freezing, expect the potential for icy conditions for the Monday morning commute north & west of the city. Temperatures will eventually fall to near freezing for Philly during the day, bringing the chance for some light freezing rain, and the chance for icy spots during the evening commute around Philly. The precipitation will begin to taper off during the evening on Monday.
Overall precipitation amounts will be light but it doesn’t take much ice to cause slick conditions.Expect little or no snow accumulation for Philly, a coating to 1″ in the NW suburbs and Lehigh Valley, and 1-3″ in the Poconos. A light ice accumulation is possible from Philly on north through the Poconos.
