***Winter Storm Warning for Schuylkill and Pike counties from 4pm Sunday through 4pm Monday***

***Winter Storm Warning for Berks, Lehigh, Northampton, Warren, Bucks and Montgomery counties from 7pm Sunday through 1pm Monday***

***Winter Weather Advisory for areas south from Sunday night through Monday Afternoon***

This morning is starting off cloudy with temperatures in the mid 20s. Temperatures will make it into the low to mid 30s this afternoon under cloudy skies. The approaching storm system will push some light snow into the area later this afternoon before quickly picking up in intensity for tonight into Monday. The heaviest time period looks to be from 1AM to 9AM on Monday, which will 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. 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, so watch for a rapid freeze Monday into Tuesday morning as low temperatures dip below zero.
