Two (Small)Snow Chances This Weekend(With Little Accumulation)

Don't you just love that headline? I get your hopes up for a split second as I mentioned the word "snow", but push you quickly back into reality when I mention it's not widespread AND there's not much moisture to work with either. Heh heh heh......

But before we talk about that, how about your Friday? What a great way to end the work week! Sunshine galore until the late afternoon once high clouds pushed in(but still made for a great sunset in spots!) with an official high at Philly International of 45 after a seasonable low of 25.

As mentioned above there were clouds moving in and they will stick around overnight. This does two things: 1) keep temperatures "milder" overnight and b) since a clipper system is pushing through we will have some snow showers with little accumulation toward morning. Lows will be around the freezing mark.

Once the clouds kick out of here by midday we will have a sunny afternoon with highs in the upper 30s. Another clipper system will push through overnight Saturday into Sunday so with lows in the upper 20s and highs in the lower 40s we can see some snow showers once again with little accumulation.

Martin Luther King, Jr. Day will start off sunny, but then clouds roll in before lunchtime with highs in the middle 40s; after dinnertime we can see some light rain with lows in the upper 30s, but overnight into early Tuesday morning a cold front ushers in colder air. This will allow temperatures to drop, change everything over to snow, and also cause anything that's wet to freeze(and hence, ice).

With Arctic air on top of us overnight Tuesday lows will be in the upper teens and highs on Wednesday will only rise a few of degrees; we'll "warm" into the lower 30s ahead of another front with a chance of snow overnight Thursday into Friday and then it's back into the 20s for highs going into next weekend!
