Weather Authority: Mild Monday leads to frigid temps, chance of snow by midweek

Conditions will turn mild on Monday with temperatures that will feel like springtime. Don’t expect the warm-up to last long, as an impending cold front will bring blustery winds and a chance of snow by midweek.

Most of the region slept through a round of overnight rain Sunday into Monday. Showers lingered into the early morning commute in some parts of the area.  

Clouds are expected to break and give way to some sun during the early afternoon, and temperatures are expected to peak in the lower 60s. 

A brief round of rain and gusty winds are forecasted to sweep across the region during the late afternoon and early evening. FOX 29's Kathy Orr says the line of storms could bring some rumbles of thunder and gusts between 30-40 MPH. 

The weather script will flip on Tuesday with temperatures dipping into the lower 40s under mostly cloudy skies. The seasonable weather will make the conditions right for a chance of some snow on Wednesday.

Wednesday has the potential to be the coldest day of the fall so far – meaning any potential precipitation may come in the form of snow. 

Parts of the area could see snow from late Wednesday morning until just after sunset. The path of the storm is the key, as models are trending toward less and less precipitation locally as the storm’s track moves further away from the Delaware Valley. 

While totals aren’t expected to even reach an inch, there is still a chance that Wednesday afternoon’s commute could be wet and slippery.
