account but with the cold air, there could be a burst of snow that reaches as far south as philadelphia it is possible. i wouldn't expect much out of that snow, in terms of accumulation but it is still something we want to allow for for philadelphia it is a mainly a rain, wind event but could be a burst of snow that leaves an inch or two behind in the farther north and western counties. so, with the timing on this, lingering in to friday, you're left with gusty winds even into saturday, but the precipitation is done by then. that is why it says until saturday morning. that is really for the wind, as the storm begins to pull away. low impacts with any snow that would fall in south jersey, southern delaware, this is again mainly rain, wind and gusts as high as 50 miles an hour at the shore. that is why i worry about those who may have a boat docked there, you want to make sure that is, secure. looking ahead it is cool but seasonably so. we will see some sun return. monday looks good up to 50 degrees, once more with sunshine, meisha.
