Heavy rain, batches of wet snow and a wintry mix hit the region Sunday. The system will continue to move through the area overnight into Monday morning leading to icy spots and a messy morning commute.
Rain as well as some sleet and non-accumulating wet snow moved into parts of the I-95 corridor as well as Chester County late Sunday afternoon. A coating of snow as well as a mix of freezing rain later hit the Poconos, Lehigh Valley and Upper Bucks County
A Winter Weather Advisory is in effect for The Poconos until 9 a.m. Monday as the wintry mix is expected to create icy spots overnight. The mix should change to rain during the Monday morning rush.
While light snow fell in Philadelphia Sunday, the city mostly saw rain as the storm progressed. Heavy rain also fell in South Jersey. The wet weather should last all of Monday and could become heavy by the evening commute. Localized flooding is possible with expected rain totals of 1 to 1.5 inches.
Temperatures will rise into the mid-50's Monday. Once the storm system moves out however, bitter cold air will set in for midweek. The expected average daytime high in Philadelphia on Tuesday is 35 degrees.
This latest winter weather threat comes after more than two inches of snow fell in parts of the Pennsylvania suburbs Thursday marking the first snowfall of the season.
NBC10 First Alert Weather Chief Meteorologist Glenn “Hurricane” Schwartz is predicting more than 40 inches of snow fall during the 2014-2015 winter season as well as extreme cold. For more information on what’s to come this winter, check out his 18th annual long-range winter forecast.
