While Philly and the immediate suburbs in Pennsylvania and Jersey are likely to see little to no real snow accumulation, that is not the case the farther to the north you go.
Channel 27 Meteorologist Max Tsaparis says the snow will pick up Saturday evening and early overnight before getting on the back side of the system where we'll see the snow lighten through Sunday morning. Mostly cloudy, with a low around 53. The snow will eventually exit Eastern Kansas by late Tuesday night.
Snow showers are wrapping up across the Stateline, and many locations should be dry by 9:30 pm.
Wednesday: Snow, sleet and freezing rain developing between 3-6 a.m. This will result in a chance for wintry weather Tuesday afternoon into Tuesday night.
SUNDAY: Rain likely. High: low 40s.
Right now, it looks like locations north of I-40 have the highest chance of seeing the wintry precipitation with areas north of I-44 having an even higher chance of seeing any snow/ice accumulation.
