    Philly: More Winter Storms Coming

    The next winter storm will hit the Philadelphia area into early Wednesday afternoon with travel delays, power outages and disruptions to daily activities. Another storm is due in this weekend.

    While the storm this past Sunday night began as rain and changed to snow, the midweek storm started off cold with some snow but changed to a lengthy period of ice north and west of the city. Rain fell along the coast.

    Where the change to rain is delayed or does not occur over the northern and western suburbs, a heavy amount of snow and ice will accumulate. In these areas, there is a risk of downed tree limbs and sporadic power outages.

    The commute home Wednesday could still be slow for those heading to the north and west, where the ice storm lingered the longest.

    The storm will move away later Wednesday. Untreated areas that remain wet at the end of the day will become icy Wednesday night. Be alert for slippery roads and sidewalks.

    The region should get a little more of a breather before the next storm rolls in. The timing of the third storm in less than a week is scheduled for this weekend.

    The Sunday to Monday storm could be the strongest of the winter, if it develops to its full potential and occurs as a single storm, rather than two separate ones.
