***Winter Storm Warning in effect from this evening through tomorrow evening for parts of the area***
Look for periods of rain and drizzle with lots of clouds throughout the day as temperatures get to around 40 degrees. There can be some minor flooding with the rain and added snow and ice melt as well.
However, this evening colder air wraps in and snow will break out into tomorrow. It looks like several inches of snow can fall with this system late tonight through Thursday afternoon. This storm has a high bust potential because a slight change in the track of the storm could mean more/less snow. A widespread area of 3-6" of snow is possible tonight (late) into tomorrow. Southern parts of the area toward Philadelphia and points south could see 6" or more. The northern Poconos may only see 1-3" of snow. The cold air blasting south tonight and tomorrow could affect the corridor of moisture shifting it south a bit resulting in the heavier accumulations further south.
Friday and through the weekend, partly to mostly sunny skies will rule with temperatures reaching the 40s by Sunday.
Snowfall Probabilities for snow Wednesday night into Thursday:
Chances for 1-3": 30%
Chances for 3-6": 60%
Chances for 6+": 10%
