Forecasters called for slippery roads throughout most of central and eastern Pennsylvania Monday morning.

The Philadelphia region is waking up to a dry Monday -- when you may be making returns or doing a little more shopping -- but it won’t stay dry.

There’s no precipitation in the morning, but radar shows some around Pittsburgh. It's heading this way so we may start getting wet around midday.

That’s why there’s a Freezing Rain Advisory for Northampton, Lehigh and Berks counties -- plus a little further north and west -– for the late morning and early afternoon.

It may be rain and it may just be a drizzle, but temperatures so low in those areas could make it slippery.

Temperatures around the area are starting out in the 30s, except for Allentown and Reading at 29. They'll come close to 50 around Philadelphia but wherever you are, the wind is making it feel a little chillier.

Philadelphia should see very light rain later, then some overnight relief, and more rain Tuesday until we see the sun again.

Tuesday will be milder with a possible 60 degree high.

Wednesday will be much colder, but don’t look for relief.

A blast of cold air will come through Friday and Saturday.

Then, Sunday, it’s looking like there will be a slight chance of rain for the Mummers.
