Storms through the middle of this week will bring rain to the Philadelphia area. However, there is a slight chance storms later in the week will bring some snow to the region.

Expect some rain-related travel delays Wednesday evening.

Temperatures will be well above freezing through the day Wednesday, so no real problems from snow and ice are in store through then.

Just enough cold air will move in Wednesday night to support snow or a mix of snow and rain.

The problem is a storm may be too far offshore to tap lingering moisture and bring snow in the first place, let alone bring heavy snow.

If it were to snow with the third storm in the Northeast, chances are it would not be a major snowfall and the snow would be spotty in nature. meteorologists will continue to monitor the potential for snow Wednesday night into Thursday, as well as the potential for a fourth storm Friday night into Saturday.

The weather will be significantly colder this coming weekend, but not nearly as extreme as the arctic outbreak of early last week.
