Winter Weather ADVISORIES issued
February 10, 2012 (WPVI) -- The National Weather Service has issued a Winter Weather ADVISORY starting at 10:00 p.m. Friday and lasting until 10:00 a.m. Saturday for parts of the area.
TONIGHT: It's cloudy. The overnight low is 36. Rain arrives late at night, changes to snow and begins to accumulate on grassy surfaces. While it's advisable to drive cautiously during the overnight snowfall, temperatures should be mild enough to keep most roads mainly wet overnight.
SATURDAY: Snow showers continue through Saturday morning, but with temperatures remaining above freezing in most neighborhoods, we are expecting most roads to remain mainly wet. The early afternoon high is 42.
Accumulations of 1-3" in most areas are possible, mainly on grassy surfaces.
Nonetheless, it will be advisable for drivers to continue using caution just in case a slick spot develops, especially in typically cooler suburban areas. In the afternoon, the intensity of the snow may begin to wind down.
But, a cold front sliding through the region will dramatically drop temperatures during the afternoon and any roads that are wet and untreated could easily FREEZE-UP.
So, in closing, this system should produce mainly wet roads tonight and tomorrow morning with small 1-3" accumulations mainly on grassy surfaces. But drivers should still use caution, especially Saturday afternoon when temperatures plunge and untreated wet roads become icy.
Pedestrians will want to follow the same advice; the best chance of icy sidewalks and driveways will be Saturday afternoon, but constant caution is advisable.
SUNDAY: Behind the departing storm system, it gets bitterly cold! Look for lots of sun but a high of only 33 and wind chills in the teens! A flurry is possible. Overnight lows will drop down into to 20s in most areas, with the teens possible in some suburbs.
MONDAY: It's sunny and not as cold. The high: 39.
TUESDAY: For now, it looks like temperatures rebound for Valentine's Day. Look for mostly cloudy skies and a moderating high around 43. There may be a few sprinkles or flurries around.
WEDNESDAY: Partly sunny skies appear likely with a high of 49. THURSDAY: Look for clouds and sun and a high of 50.
FRIDAY: It's cloudy with rain possible. The high: a mild 51.
