Today's chill of winter will linger for another day but gradually ease as we work into Monday night. Computer modeling is showing the potential for some light freezing rain and/or sleet for parts of the region for Monday night and early Tuesday morning as a storm system approaches from the west. Cold air will be on the slow retreat...and the threat of freezing rain and sleet for anyone north and west of Philly depends mainly on how quick the precipitation gets into the region. I don't foresee any freezing rain or sleet in the city itself but there's a chance for those of us north of the PA Turnpike and west of the Delaware River late Monday evening.
Temperatures won't be the greatest though on Monday night -- generally in the mid 30's in the Philly burbs...with the cold couple of days we've experienced the local side streets could be a bit slick at the onset into Upper Bucks and Montco if precipitation arrives relatively quickly...but temperatures should slowly rise through the night and the threat of icy travel should retreat to the Poconos. The good news is that we're anticipating precipitation to be light at the onset so the threat of "ice storm" is not really in the picture.
