After a snow storm dumped 14 inches of snow in the Philadelphia area earlier this week, another storm is making its way through the region.
The National Weather Service issued a winter storm warning Saturday morning for a coastal storm that could bring 4 to 7 inches of snow this Super Bowl Sunday.
Accumulation is predicted to be much lower than last Sunday's storm, and snow is forecasted to start falling Saturday night and into Sunday morning. The flurries should stop in time for the Super Bowl, which starts at 6:30 p.m.
Saturday should stay sunny and in the low 40s before the coastal storm makes its way through the area.
Central and southern Delaware, South Jersey and the shore will get hit with snow first as the storm moves through the area as early as 1 - 3 a.m Sunday morning.
Precipitation will continue north and cover all of South Jersey, Philadelphia and the surrounding suburbs before sunrise.
Several inches of accumulation are possible, but it's not expected to last very long.
Here's a look at the NWS forecast for Philadelphia going into next week.
SATURDAY: Mostly sunny with a high near 43 degrees. Snow is possible after 3 a.m., with a 40% chance of precipitation.
