The Philly region could see more snow this week, just over a month after the first major snowfall of the season.
The National Weather Service has issued a Hazardous Weather Outlook for Southeastern Pennsylvania and South Jersey, forecasting some light snow and a wintry mix of precipitation on Tuesday before changing over to rain.
The storm is expected to bring a variety of precipitation types to the Philly region late Monday and Tuesday, according to the National Weather Service.
Many areas will experience some snow and a wintry mix on Monday night and Tuesday. The storm is expected to weaken throughout the day on Tuesday, when light precipitation is forecasted to move in.
Snow and sleet accumulations are forecasted to be light, and the changeover to rain is expected to occur mainly east and south of the I-95 corridor. Those traveling outdoors are advised to prepare for slippery conditions.
Good Monday morning! A weakening storm system will bring a variety of precipitation types to our region later tonight and especially Tuesday. Very dry air may delay the onset of the light precip until during the day Tuesday and Tuesday night farther north. #pawx #njwx #mdwx #dewx pic.twitter.com/2Yc4e48ocr— NWS Mount Holly (@NWS_MountHolly) January 25, 2021
