    Don't put the boots away: A wintry mess of light rain and snow in the far northern neighborhoods could glaze over the end of your weekend.

    The First Alert Weather team is tracking a weather system moving in from the west and set to arrive in our area by 8 p.m. It will bring light snow to the far northern neighborhoods, rain to areas in and around Philadelphia and light rain to the south.

    The best chance for snow will be areas along and north of Interstate 78.

    Areas south of the Pennsylvania Turnpike, including Philadelphia, will likely get rain.

    Temperatures keep dropping, and as the day progresses the region will be getting some rain and snow. Most of the Philadelphia area will be in the low 40s, except for the Lehigh Valley and Pennsylvania suburbs, which will reach a high of only 37 degrees. By the evening, the Lehigh Valley can expect some snow turning to rain, the suburbs can expect a mixture of snow and sleet that will turn into rain, and the I-95 Corridor and areas further south will get mostly rain.

    Another storm Wednesday will bring a brief period of accumulating snow before changing to ice then rain. The NBC10 First Alert Weather Team will continue to watch this storm system as it will likely have greater impacts than Sunday evening’s storm.
