A Winter Storm Watch for Saturday, but a milder Sunday is forecasted

A roller coaster of temperatures and a winter storm watch is in store for the President's Day weekend in the Delaware Valley.

Temperatures are expected to peak around 60 degrees Friday, but changes are coming for the rest of the weekend.

Overnight Friday into Saturday, temperatures are expected to plummet into the twenties by Saturday morning, February 17. The temps will climb only into the mid-thirties by 5 or 6 p.m. That is when the snow is expected to arrive.

The Winter Storm Watch is posted for Chester, Montgomery, Bucks, Mercer, Berks and Lehigh Counties.

3-4 inches of snow is expected to fall north and west of Philadelphia. A wintry mix is expected south and east of the city. Travel Saturday evening could be slippery and slick.

The snow won't last long, as temperatures for Sunday, February 18 are expected to rise to about 50 degrees. With bright sunshine, the snow will likely melt quickly.
