    What to Know

    • Two chances for wintry weather ahead of Presidents Day.

    • Snow and cold rain are possible both Saturday and Sunday. The best chance for snow is in South Jersey and southern Delaware.

    • Conditions should clear for Presidents Day.

    The NBC10 First Alert Weather Team is tracking more wintry weather for this holiday weekend but the storms don't appear to be very impressive.

    Here is what you need to know as we track the weather coming our way:

    Temps Thursday warmed into the 40s under partly sunny skies. High temps then rocket up to near 60 on Friday with a chance of a scattered light rain shower.

    A cold front swings through with colder weather for Saturday and sets us up for chance of wintry weather in some South Jersey and Delaware neighborhoods. It should be mostly cloudy in Philadelphia and points north.

    There is a chance for a mix of rain and snow later Saturday morning and into the afternoon. The system will ride to the south, so the southernmost parts of South Jersey and Delaware have the best chance of seeing some wet weather. It should move out Saturday night.

    Dry on the day Sunday with the chance of an even weaker system bringing a chance of snow to neighborhoods south of Philadelphia late Sunday night into early Monday.

    Neither system looks very impressive and neither is expected to bring much snow, if any accumulation, but that could change. High temps Saturday and Sunday are expected around 40.

    Once the second system moves out, a chilly and partly cloudy Presidents Day is expected with highs in the mid to upper 30s. Another hit of wintry weather could then come on Tuesday.
