Sunshine returned to the area Wednesday, but the frigid conditions stayed in place.

Even though temperatures topped out in the teens, it felt like near or below zero for most of the day because of a northwest wind.

Increasing clouds and bitterly cold conditions will dominate overnight Wednesday into Thursday as lows plummet to around zero degrees and possibly below zero in parts of the area. 

Little is expected to change temperature-wise for Thursday as highs hold in the middle and upper teens. 

An approaching clipper system will bringing us rather cloudy skies on Thursday along with a chance for some flurries and a snow shower, primarily in the afternoon and evening hours.

Sunny to partly cloudy skies will take over once again on Friday, but highs are expected to remain in the teens for one more day.

As for Tuesday's storm, snowfall accumulations ranged from just a small coating in northern parts of the 69 News viewing area to more than a foot in Philadelphia and some of its surrounding suburbs.
