The highest amounts will be south and east of Philadelphia. Temperatures will be in the 30s so it will be a wet snow.

 

Snow will accumulate on grassy and untreated surfaces first. The system is expected to move offshore by the evening. The storm may lead to tricky travel on Saturday. PennDOT is ready with 120,000 tons of salt on the ground across the 5 county region. The stockpile in South Philly is all set for action. PennDOT says it has 250 trucks ready to work easily shifting into plowing mode if needed. Brine is already down on many highways.
