Meteorologist Ed Hanna's 10 p.m. forecast

Tonight: Snow arriving between 11 pm and 1 am; changes to sleet and freezing rain overnight. Low: 25

Clouds continue to thicken. Snow is expected to overspread our area between 11 pm and 1 am from south and west to north and east. Snow will come down heavy at times before changing to sleet and possibly freezing rain overnight (between 3 am - 6 am).


***Winter Storm Warnings/Winter Weather Advisories in effect from late tonight and Wednesday***

If we end up with a quicker changeover to ice, accumulations will be held down. Sleet and freezing rain into the morning rush hour making for a messy and treacherous morning commute.

Wednesday: Sleet changing to freezing rain early (perhaps changing to plain rain before ending early afternoon--plain rain southern sections). May not get to 32 degrees until the pm. High: 33 Low: 18

A general 3-6 inches of snow and ice is expected through Wednesday with 6-12 inches in the Poconos and 1-3 inches toward Philly. Thursday will feature mostly sunny skies and highs in the upper 20s.
