    Icing, snow, and bitter cold are all in the forecast as a storm moves in this weekend. Counties north and west of Philadelphia will get hit hardest.

    Update 12:15 p.m. from Meteorologist Michelle Grossman:

     

    The precipitation is completely off the coast with the exception of extreme southern New Jersey.  It will be a matter of minutes before that area clears too.  So now we look to the bitterly cold winds that will be taking hold of our area. 

     

    Over the next several hours, the winds will pick up and become more westerly.  This will help to dry things out but will also usher in chillier air.  Overnight, with winds gusting near 30 mph, and actual air temperatures in the teens, it will feel more like zero degrees. Bundle up! 

     

    Update 10:55 a.m. from Meteorologist Michelle Grossman: 

     

    The main precipitation has moved out of the Philadelphia area; still affecting parts of central/southern New Jersey though.  The good news is that most of the precipitation is falling as rain, as temperatures have climbed above freezing, south and east of the city.  Closer to the city expect spotty light drizzle/freezing drizzle before we completely clear out. 

     

    Update 9:16 a.m. from Meteorologist Michelle Grossman:

    Snow, sleet, freezing rain, and rain is still coming down across the area. And this wintry weather is making for very difficult travel this Sunday morning. We already heard of many accidents across the region.

    Take extra care on bridges, overpasses, and any untreated surfaces. Temperatures remain at or below freezing, at this hour, in most spots. The exception is eastern and southern New Jersey where temperatures are barely above freezing.

    Nonetheless, rain is starting to overtake that area.
