Rain, possible wintry mix could follow dry, typical Sunday

- High temperatures typical for this time of year around Philadelphia on Sunday could lead to a wintry mix overnight and into Monday for those of you in the far northern and western portions of our region.

First, Sunday, we woke up to chilly temps in the 30s and 40s.

Later Sunday, FOX 29 Weather Authority meteorologist Scott Williams is calling for high temperatures in the upper 40s. There will not be as high wind, so the wind chill or feels-like conditions will be about the same. It’ll be dry and quiet.

Then, clouds will move in on Sunday evening.

Sunday night’s lows will be about 40 in Philadelphia, and the low-to-mid 30s elsewhere.

There could be overnight rain in Philadelphia, South Jersey and Delaware – 3am to 7am -- but it’ll be light rain showers in the immediate area. Just don’t be surprised by a sleet pellet or flurry possible when it starts.

However, for folks in Lehigh, Northampton, Berks counties and the Poconos -- those colder temperatures, along with precipitation moving in from the south -- could mean a light wintry mix from about 2am through the Monday morning rush hour, until about 7am. (Click picture for details.)

That would involve minor accumulations, mainly on grassy surfaces for the Monday morning commute.
