Another storm with snow and travel problems will swing through the Philadelphia area to start the weekend.

A clipper storm moving in from the Midwest will roll across the area Saturday with a swath of snow.

Accumulations from this fast-moving storm are forecast to be on the order of a few inches, but enough snow can fall to bring another pulse of airline delays and slippery roads for a time.

There is a chance this storm strengthens upon nearing the coast. If this happens, heavy snow may unfold, especially over New Jersey and lower Delaware.

Updates on this storm will continue on

For folks hoping for a change in the weather, there is some good news next week.

After yet another storm passes through the upper part of the mid-Atlantic and New England with snow Monday night into Tuesday, temperatures will trend above average for the middle and latter part of the week.

In the wake of the snowstorms, people are urged to walk and drive defensively.

How warm it gets is tricky, as the ground and area waterways are cold and/or frozen and many areas will have to melt a substantial amount of snow beforehand.

The sun's energy will first focus on melting that snow before warming up the lower atmosphere.
