1 a.m. to 4 a.m., freezing rain and sleet. 4 a.m. to 3 p.m. most of the storm is rain. some heavy and then it changes over to snow as the storm moves offshore. north and west areas getting hit the hardest here. 1 p.m. to 4 a.m. that snow accumulating creating rough driving. 4 a.m. to 9 a.m. an icy mix developing in parts of those north and western suburbs with rough driving. the rain and wintry mix from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. and then snow back at the end of it. now, southern jersey and delaware, most of this is rain. a little wintry mix to rain this evening. most of the storm is rain. some of it heavy. a chance of snow as we go through the evening and kay few icy spots.
