    NBC10 First Alert Meteorologist Bill Henley is tracking some light snow in parts of our area. But the good news is that Friday's temperatures will reach the mid-30s-- about 10 degrees warmer than Thursday's high. (Published Friday, Jan. 9, 2015)

    A slight warm-up from this week's bone-chilling cold was paired with snow as a quick moving storm brought precipitation to much of our region Friday.

    Flurries began falling before 5 a.m. Friday in Philadelphia's suburbs and city residents began to see snow about an hour later.

    The city and surrounding suburbs should expect about a dusting to 1/2 inch of snow before the system moves out, while Allentown and parts of Lehigh County could see up to an inch. About two inches will fall in the Poconos and other higher elevation areas.

    While most of southeastern Pennsylvania will see snow, there may not be any precipitation in South Jersey and Delaware.

    The Friday morning flurries come as temperatures rise into the low 30s -- nearly 10 degrees warmer than Thursday's high.

    But the warm up won't last. A bitter blast of cold returns Saturday as temperatures will start in the teens before climbing to highs in the low 20s. The blistering chill will taper off next week, however wet weather heads our way. Expect a wintry mix of sleet and freezing rain Monday and the possibility of snow later in the week.
