    After a springlike start to the week in Philadelphia, a sharp change to frigid weather will come for Thursday.

    Subfreezing air will quickly freeze up any wet or slushy roadways and sidewalks which could make for a slippery Thursday morning commute.

    "Car doors and locks may freeze up as the frigid weather moves in," said Senior Meteorologist Dave Dombek.

    AccuWeather RealFeel® temperatures will be in the single digits and lower teens throughout the day Thursday.

    "The next few days will be like a winter sandwich," said AccuWeather.com Chief Meteorologist Elliot Abrams.

    A frigid Thursday will be saddled in-between a pair relatively mild days. Highs will return to the mid-40s on Friday before reaching the upper 50s by Saturday.
