PHILADELPHIA (CBS) — A storm system currently over the deep south bringing rain and snow will track northeast off the southeast coast Thursday morning. The storm will brush our southern viewing area with a quick round of snow early Thursday morning. Winter weather advisories will go in effect for far southern NJ, the NJ and central and southern Delaware. Areas along the shore and southern Delaware will see the most snow.
Temperatures will drop into the lower 20s tonight allowing for all snow to occur this this system. The steadiest snow across southern Delaware and NJ will be from around 6am to 9am. Allow some extra time for the morning commute with some snow covered roads and reduced visibility. Drier conditions will return by late morning and afternoon with temperatures holding in the 20s. It is possible the snow could make it far enough north into Philadelphia, bringing a coating to 1″ during the morning commute time period.
Behind this system, a fresh supply of arctic air will return to the Delaware Valley later on Thursday. Temperatures on Friday will struggle to make it into the mid 20s with sunshine. Some near record low temperatures are possible on Saturday morning. The sunshine continues on Saturday but the arctic air holds tough with temperatures staying below freezing on Saturday. The next storm system will arrive late Sunday night with the chance for some rain and snow.
