The event begins as rain for most, mainly after midnight. Then it will shift to snow from northwest to southeast throughout the region when cold, Arctic air blows into the back of a strong cold front.

The region is unlikely to experience much in the way of sleet or freezing rain as temperatures are set to drop rapidly. The precipitation type will be all snow in Philadelphia around noon. 6 or 7 Thursday. Constant snow will fall during the duration of the morning rush hour, and some snow can be heavy at times.

The wintry weather ends for most at noon on Thursday, yet the snow can continue along the coast until the early afternoon hours.

The altitude is likely to occur at midnight and temperatures will drop to the 20s from mid to late Thursday morning.

As such, the snow will stick and remain on untreated surfaces. Expect reduced visibility, slippery roads, driveways and sidewalks through most of the morning.

The evening commute on Thursday will be dry, but with temperatures continuing to fall, any accumulated snowfall will freeze to create potentially icy conditions.

Prepare for extreme cold to set in in the evening with chills falling to single digits at. 22.00
