PHILADELPHIA (FOX 29) - The National Weather Service has issued a Winter Storm Watch for a midweek storm that will bring accumulating snow, sleet and rain to the region.
The Winter Storm Watch goes into effect Wednesday at 6 a.m.
Snow will creep in late morning and transition to rain during the evening rush hour. It should transition to rain into Thursday morning.
So....when does it start? With our storm moving in from the southwest, Delaware and Lancaster will probably see the first flakes. Late morning here in Philadelphia. By lunchtime further north. Once it gets here, be prepared for a mess. @FOX29philly pic.twitter.com/FijaHrWqej— Sue Serio (@SueSerioFox29) February 20, 2019
