Snowfall moving out as Arctic air moves into region

- Winter Weather Advisories are in effect for most of the region until the early afternoon Friday as snow makes its way out the area, and the cold hangs around for a little while longer. 

A fast moving cold front helped drop temperatures overnight, allowing expected rain to turn over to a wet snow.

The storm will move from northwest to southeast, and snow will start spreading into the Philadelphia area by 5 a.m. It should around noon for most, with the steadiest snowfall coming between 7 a.m. and 11 a.m.

Accumulating snow is a possibility, especially on grassy surfaces since the pavement is still pretty warm. Most of the area is only looking at about 1-3 inches of snow, or less, with the exception of the Poconos, where they could see upwards of three inches.
