Take away weather

  • We went from record heat in the 70s on Monday to the 40s on Tuesday morning and Wednesday morning some of you might get some snow.
  • Snow and sleet are most likely in the Lehigh Valley, Berks County and colder Pennsylvania suburbs on Wednesday.
  • Cold rains are expected in areas that do not receive winter mix or snow.

From 70s to storms to snow in just 48 hours.

That’s right, the northern and western neighborhoods of the Philadelphia area could see snow on Wednesday, following record high temperatures on Monday.

With the ground warm, the storm shouldn’t bring much buildup, but it could be troublesome during the day Wednesday.

The system moves mostly as rain before daybreak Wednesday and becomes more stable through the morning.

As the morning progresses, snow and sleet will begin to mix, especially in the Lehigh Valley and Berks County. If the snow gets heavy enough, it could stick to grass, parked cars, and colder surfaces. Up to 2 inches could stick to grassy areas in Lehigh Valley and Berks County.

In the colder suburbs of Pennsylvania, most snow will melt, but a mess of slush is possible.

In Philadelphia and to the south, you might see some snow mixing briefly in the morning, but most of the time only cold rain is expected.

Any wet weather should clear up by Wednesday evening.

Thursday and Friday are expected to be mostly dry with highs in the 50s before windswept rain, with another chance of snow, returns on Saturday.
