February 18th, 2012 Forecast

The upcoming weekend's attention from the snow starved has been mainly focused on the Sunday storm that will pass to our south.  Questions still abound about specific accumulation totals and how much ultimately falls in Philly.  We will start to answer those questions later this evening but as of now, the best projection for snowfall will be south of the city where a few to perhaps several inches of snow will fall in Southern Delaware and Maryland, with a couple of inches possible in Philadelphia.  For places north of the city, the odds of significant snow or any snow diminish pretty quickly.

Before that, a relatively nice Saturday is ahead of us, with a mix of sunshine and clouds expected through the region.  One piece of energy will move through the Northeast late in the day and Saturday evening, with a slight chance for a shower north of I-78 after sunset.  However, most of the region should avoid any showers and in fact it should be a rather nice day.

Lows tonight will be in the upper 20's and lower 30's, with highs on Saturday in the upper 40's northwest to the middle 50's in Central Delaware.  Philly should get to about 52 degrees.

We'll have a more complete update on the Sunday storm system during the evening hours.
