Discussion

High pressure will continue to build into southeastern Canada today and it will result in a dry and very cold day here in the Mid-Atlantic region as we await a significant mid-week storm system. This next storm will likely begin here with snow on Wednesday in the early-to-mid afternoon hours and there is likely to be a changeover to sleet and freezing rain late in the day or early tomorrow night; especially, in the Philly metro region and its close-by suburbs. Any mixed precipitation that is falling early tomorrow night is likely to change back to all snow and there can be significant snow accumulations by daybreak on Thursday. Early estimates of snow accumulations are as follows: 3-6 inches in the Philly metro region, 6-12 inches in the nearby N/W suburbs, and 12+ inches in the far N/W suburbs. Snow winds down early Thursday and the rest of the day will feature breezy and very cold conditions and snow showers are possible in the PM hours.
