Increasing clouds and cold conditions will be featured overnight with low temperatures dipping into the lower and middle teens. A good amount of cloud cover is expected to be overhead on Sunday as our next storm system slides closer to the area. Despite the extra clouds, our high temperatures are expected to bounce back into the lower and middle 30s.

The approaching storm system will push some snow into the area Sunday afternoon before quickly picking up in intensity for Sunday night and Monday. The heaviest time period looks to be from 1AM to 9AM on Monday, which could cause problems for your morning commute.
Depending on where the rain/snow line sets up we may see some sleet, freezing rain, or rain mixing in for a while in parts of the area, which could lead to less accumulation. Snowfall amount will generally be heavier to the north and less to the south (see map below). Northern Schuylkill, Carbon, Monroe, Sussex and counties northward are looking at 8-12 inches of snow.

From this point southward, we expect 4-8 inches of snow through southern Berks, central Bucks, Montgomery, and Mercer counties. Look for 2-4 inches just north on Philadelphia and across northern Chester county. Around 1-2 inches will be possible through the Philadelphia area with less than a inch across southern New Jersey. Any slight change in the track, precipitation type, or intensity could alter the amount of accumulation we ultimately see, stay tuned for the very latest.

Bitterly cold conditions take over behind this system with highs topping out in the teens on Tuesday despite a mix of sun and clouds.
