4:19 pm
enough to start sticking on untreated surfaces. a lot of it has been going straight to the east during the day today, but it's just now starting to make its turn up in our direction. once again, there is a lot of moisture in this thing. so it starts generally between 6:00 and 9:00 a.m. in parts like bucks county and mercer county and burlington county that may not affect you during the morning rush but in new castle county delaware, for example, chester county. yeah. it may have an issue there with this slushy snow that's going to start and it will get heavier as we head toward the midday hour across a good bit of the area and that will change to rain during the afternoon and then we'll watch what happens in the evening and could end in rain with the philly northern suburbs. as we go into friday this computer model again is too slow with this. very often the snow comes in faster than the computer models say, but look at the darker

4:31 pm
be a very heavy, wet snow and then morning and afternoon rush both affected by the heaviest of that snow north of the pennsylvania turnpike. we do expect this rain that is down to the south to start moving to the north right into the cold air and that will be making it snow. so the snow starts 6:00 to 9:00 a.m. and the morning rush and then gets heavier later in the morning, but it's kind of slushy and the strong march sun having an impact on that mixing or changing to rain in the afternoon until at least parts of the area and then a chance of a change to some freeszing rain during the evening hours. we expect the highest amounts of snow north of the pennsylvania turnpike up to three to six inches especially in the higher elevations where it's a little bit cooler and that has a big impact in march snows. two to four inches across much of the area from northern delaware up to trenton and then
