Top NW winds reached 23mph in Philly and top gusts 31! Winds were the weather story of the day, but that is all changing as a high pressure system sitting over West VA pushes SE then tracks offshore, giving way to a low that will develop around N. Carolina. The low will ride out the moisture moving in from the SW. However with the push of polar air, rushing in from the NW will settle into place just as the precip makes it in. The deal is this: We are like going to see a changeover to a wintry mix at least through Montgomery County, but the outer periphery of Philly County could see a mix as well- overnight Sunday into Monday (1-4AM). Timing is everything and in this case it looks like Mother Nature times it out for such an event. With that said, my BIG concern is the Monday AM commute. Many will likely see a mix including sleet and some freezing rain if you head out before 7AM.
Tue into Wed ushers in another system, but temps will be a bit warmer so I don't expect a changeover- However, as the polar blast picks up and brings colder air our way, a third system may Thursday into Friday is likely to changeover.
Blustery conditions by the end of next week. See temps below...
