A quick hitting storm will approach the region from west to east later this morning. Little to no accumulation expected in Philly. About 2-5” likely points north and west of the city!

Snow continues to fall west of I-95 and rain is the dominant precipitation type across South Jersey. Snow total coming out of Pennsylvania is generally in the 2- to 5-inch range. The snow will start to taper north and west fairly quickly late afternoon and early evening, and we’ll turn to all rain in the city. Most, if not all, precipitation wraps up region-wide by 5 p.m.
A little impulse passes tomorrow and could generate an isolated snow or rain shower, mainly north and west. Then we finally get a nice day on Wednesday, with highs in the 50’s!READ MORE: Delaware County Company Develops 'The Hurricane,' Device Using UVC Technology To Kill Coronavirus
Sunshine and snow-free conditions will then prevail into the end of the week, when we’ll do a lot of snow melting.

The weekend looks active with a storm system lifting in on Saturday, which may begin as snow and transition to rain. And another system may approach Sunday night, though models are a little all over the place on this one at the moment. This, though, would be a mainly rain event.
