A storm coming on Sunday has the potential to bring snow, some ice and travel problems to the Philadelphia area.
While a large amount of snow is not expected, the city could receive its first inch or two of snow of the season.
Other cities along the I-95 corridor are also likely to receive their first inch of snow as the storm travels to the northeast including Washington, Baltimore, New York and Boston.
Warmer air is forecast to move in during the storm Sunday evening through Monday, causing a changeover to a wintry mix, then rain from the coast to inland areas.
As usual, areas north and west of the city will have the longest duration of snow and ice, where there is the risk of some downed trees and sporadic power outages, as well as more general slippery road conditions.
The worst conditions in terms of damage and disruptions from an ice buildup will be over the I-81 corridor reaching from the I-77 junction in Virginia northeastward to around Harrisburg, Pa. Travel may still be hazardous in these areas into Monday morning rush hour.
There may be flight delays at Philadelphia International Airport Sunday afternoon through Monday due to snow and wintry mix at first, then from rain and low ceilings later.
As July draws to a close, a storm system swinging up from the Deep South will bring downpours to the northeastern U.S. and break the back of an extended heat wave.
Repeating and slow-moving storms will raise the risk of flash flooding and damaging winds over northern and central High Plains into Thursday night.
Repeating downpours will raise the risk for flash flooding along the Gulf coast and lower Mississippi Valley through the middle days of the week.
Highs will run between 10 and 15 degrees Fahrenheit above average across much of the western United States into the upcoming weekend.
The F1 season continues this weekend with the German Grand Prix in Hockenheim with disruptive showers and thunderstorms in the forecast.
The heat felt across the United Kingdom during the middle of July has faded and is not expected to return through at least the first week of August.
