    What to Know

    • Wintry weather could hit parts of the Philadelphia region over Presidents Day Weekend.

    • Snow and cold rain are possible Sunday night into Monday for much of the area.

    • Any wintry weather should clear out for Presidents Day with seasonable highs in the 40s.

    The NBC10 First Alert Weather Team is tracking some weak wintry weather for this holiday weekend.

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

    High temps Friday rocketed above 60 under mostly sunny skies ahead of scattered light, and brief, rain showers during the evening rush.

    A cold front swings through with colder weather for Saturday and sets us up for chance of wintry weather in the most southern tip of New Jersey and southern Delaware neighborhoods during the morning. It should be mostly cloudy in most of the area.

    High temps should be normal, in the low 40s so it’s possible that even where the system hits that the snow changes to rain. Any precipitation that falls should be gone by Saturday night.

    Dry and cloudy during the day Sunday with highs in the mid to upper 30s. A weak system then moves in Sunday night bringing a chance of snow to Philadelphia, the Pennsylvania suburbs, the Lehigh Valley, Berks County, northern Delaware and South Jersey. The same southern neighborhoods that possibly get snow Saturday might only get rain from this second system.

    The system should push out before daybreak Monday leaving us with a mostly cloudy Presidents Day with highs in the low 40s.

    Another hit of wintry weather could then come on Wednesday bringing possible accumulating snow to the area before changing to a wintry mix then rain. It is still early to determine the impact of Wednesday’s storm.
