Scattered snow showers moved into the suburbs north and west of Philadelphia early Thursday morning as biting winds made above freezing temperatures feel even colder.
Flurries began falling around 4:30 a.m. in parts of Lehigh and Berks counties. The snow started to reach parts closer to the city shortly after 6 a.m. Philly residents will see flurries around 9 a.m.
The temperatures, holding in the mid-30s across southeastern Pennsylvania, will keep the snow from accumulating before it tapers off in the late morning.
Thursday started out cloudy with temperatures around 36 degrees. As the clouds make way for sun throughout the morning and early afternoon, temps drop.
By lunchtime, it will be about 30 degrees and some parts will have wind gusts approaching speeds of 30 miles per hour.
The mercury will continue to nosedive in the afternoon and evening. Temperatures will head towards a low of 11 degrees overnight with wind chill values below zero.
Expect mostly sunny skies Friday and a high temperature near 29 degrees. Saturday will warm up with temperatures in the upper 30s. The weekend will come to a close with another chance of rain and snow overnight Saturday into Sunday.
