Storm packing snow, sleet, freezing rain to hit Philly area Thursday morning

Rain showers will move into our area early on Monday morning, starting with light rain around 4AM for our southern counties in AL and GA.

And, looking further ahead, the Met Office has warned that towards the end of the month there will be a "marked increase in the likelihood and extent of frosts" along with "an increased chance of snow".

"There will be a risk of travel disruption through this period with volatile, stormy weather combined with the cold, bringing a risk of winter thunderstorms and outbreaks of thunder snow".

WEDNESDAY: Morning hard freeze, then sunny and cold. A huge area of high pressure across northern Europe, a huge area of low pressure in the mid-Atlantic and the United Kingdom is stuck in between.

Tonight is expected to be largely cloudy and breezy, with outbreaks of rain for Wales, northern England, Scotland and Northern Ireland, some of which will be heavy. A bit more will fall in the northeast due to lake effect part of tomorrow. Be mindful, though, a hard freeze is on the way for tonight, so it will be even colder Wednesday morning with lows in the 20s. Low around 50. South wind around 10 miles per hour becoming north after midnight. Be sure to grab a coat out-the-door, as wind chills are now in the 20's and the breeze continues from the northwest. High: 58. Wind: S 5-10 miles per hour. Wind: S 10-15 miles per hour. Winds could gust as high as 29 miles per hour. High: 65. Wind: S 10-15 miles per hour.

WEDNESDAY: Mostly cloudy with 30% showers possible.

MONDAY: Mostly to partly cloudy and cool. Northwest wind around 5 miles per hour.

Saturday: Sunny, with a high near 65.
