The National Weather Service has issued a WINTER STORM WARNING for many parts of the Radio 104.5 listening (Thursday 4am - 4pm) area in anticipation of snow moving in overnight into tomorrow morning.
While, we're currently enjoying unseasonably mild temps (possibly record high temps!) in the mid 60's, the temperature will drop tonight before rain begins around 10-midnight and then snow is expected to move in around 3am, continuing through tomorrow.
The heaviest snow is expected between 4am and noon. The National Weather Service predicts 4-6 inches, while the 6ABC forecast calls for 4-8 inches around Philly and points North/West, while expecting 1-4 inches closer to the shore, while Philly.com suggests around 6 inches with potential for up to 10!
