Tonight: Snow, sleet and freezing rain (mainly ice); Coating - 2 inches for most with locally higher amounts (towards Poconos) Wintry mix changing to rain overnight. Dense patchy fog in many areas. Low: 27

***Winter Weather Advisory in effect through early Wednesday morning***
***Winter Storm Watch in effect from Wednesday evening through Thursday evening***
Tonight snow, sleet and freezing rain (mainly sleet and freezing rain) will continue eventually changing over to rain from southwest to northeast as temperatures slowly rise overnight. However, additional accumulations of ice before the change to plain rain. Roadways are very slick this evening and will continue to be until temperatures rise well above 32 degrees overnight.
We will see some rain and drizzle at times on Wednesday with highs topping out near 40 degrees, but colder air wraps in late Wednesday night and Thursday and snow will break out. It looks like several inches of snow can fall with that system late Wednesday night through Thursday afternoon. However, this storm has a high bust potential because a slight change in the track of the storm could mean more/less snow. Please stay tuned for the very latest over the next day, but here's a look at our thinking right now.
Snowfall Probabilities for snow Wednesday night into Thursday:
Chances for 1-3": 20%
Chances for 3-6": 60%
Chances for 6+": 20%
