If chilly days and Mondays get you down, then you might want to take a peek at the big warm-up that's on the way later this week! Unfortunately, before the nice sunny weather arrives, cold weather will stick around long enough to give some neighborhoods snow Tuesday morning.
Monday is mostly be dry and chilly with mostly cloudy skies. As you can see in Ocean City, New Jersey, clouds started moving in first thing in the morning.
A little filtered sunshine appeared outside NBC10 studios Monday morning. It will turn cloudier as the day goes on.
The cloud cover will help to keep temperatures well below the low 60s, which would be normal this time of year.
A weak system moving through our area will bring a light wintry mix overnight. As it arrives late Monday evening, any snow and rain will be falling into air that is still well above freezing, so snow will be melting as it falls.
It will get colder overnight, however, allowing for some neighborhoods in the Pennsylvania suburbs and the Lehigh Valley / Berks County to see a light accumulation on colder surfaces.
The snow will likely melt on roadways but may stick to cars and sidewalks, which cool faster than paved surfaces.
A dusting of snow is possible in colder suburban neighborhoods and not much more in the Lehigh Valley.
Any snow that might stick, will quickly disappear during the day. As we go into the afternoon hours Tuesday, showers will be on their way out and temperatures will warm through the 40s and into the low 50s.
A dry stretch of weather will coincide with a big, spring warm-up later this week. Thursday and Friday will feel more like June than April.
The chance of more wet weather returns Sunday and Monday, but this time, snow is finally out of the question.
