An arctic blast with cold temperatures continues Friday but relief is on the way after some snow Friday.
Here is what to expect:
- Friday: Light snow is possible as high temps only get into the 20s.
- Saturday: Temps finally start to warm above freezing.
Bitter cold continues Friday with highs only getting into the low 20s. Light snow is possible from a weak system in the late morning into the afternoon. South Jersey and Delaware neighborhoods have the best chance for any minor accumulation.
Relief comes over the weekend with temps in the 30s Saturday then getting up to 50 in some neighborhoods Sunday. It could get to 60 degrees by Tuesday.
Thursday was the coldest part of the arctic blast. On Thursday morning, low temperatures (without the wind chill) were in the single digits or below zero in most neighborhoods. Before daybreak, feels-like temps dipped to around 10 below in the Philly area, around 20 below in the Lehigh Valley and 30-plus below in the Poconos.
High temps Thursday, despite the sun, didn't get out of the teens.
