Winter Weather Advisory in Effect

Philadelphia and its surrounding suburbs are under a winter weather advisory in anticipation of Wednesday afternoon snowfall, according to the National Weather Service. The advisory, which is in effect from 4 p.m. Wednesday to 6 a.m. Thursday, calls for “periods of snow, sleet or freezing rain” that could make travel difficult.

“Mixed precipitation will change to rain during the day before changing back to all snow toward the evening,” the advisory states. “Temperatures are forecast to be above freezing and this will assist melting … [but] some slushy accumulations are likely throughout the area.”

The NWS advises that travel will likely get more difficult as the day progresses and that residents should be aware of possible power outages resulting from high winds. Temperatures are forecasted to be in the mid-to-upper 30s, with wind gusts up to 45 mph.

The winds will begin to die down tonight with the mercury dipping to 26, the NWS says. Looking ahead, there’s a slight chance of showers Thursday night and Friday, but it will be partly cloudy with a low around 35 for New Year’s Eve celebrations Saturday night. For New Year’s Day, the forecast is predicting partly sunny skies with a high near 51. The chance of precipitation returns Sunday night in form of rain followed on Monday with a 30 percent chance of rain and snow showers. But with a predicted high of 45, whatever snow that might fall Monday won’t stick for long. The forecast for Tuesday calls for partly sunny skies with a high near 37.
