WINTER STORM WARNING IN EFFECT FROM MIDNIGHT TONIGHT TO 11 AM EDT MONDAY.* WHAT.Heavy wet snow expected.
Accumulating snow is expected with the cold front, along with a period of strong winds.
A Winter Storm Warning for snow means severe winter weather conditions will make travel very hazardous or impossible, according to the National Weather Service. The last time Philadelphia had April snow was 1996 when it 2.4 inches fell. 6 to 9 inches additional accumulation through the evening. Temperatures remain well below seasonal averages, and could even flirt with some record cold mornings.
If the weekend system tracks further north, Rowland said, there's a possibility New Jersey could see snow across the entire state.
The Monday-morning commute will likely be treacherous from Washington, D.C., to Hartford, including NY and Philadelphia. Blowing snow will keep the threat for snow-covered roads going through the night.
Temperatures this week should range between warm and mild, but the possibility - however remote - of snow on Saturday is already causing a stir. It will feel almost 40 degrees colder on Monday morning.
Wednesday night: Partly cloudy, low around 15. Highs are forecast to hit 43 degrees in the city.
The cooler weather will continue into Tuesday, when a high of 48 degrees is forecast, but pick up Wednesday as highs climb to 63 degrees. On Monday, some of the cold air moves east, with wind chills in the 20s across much of the I-95 corridor.
