...A light wintry mix is possible late this evening into the
overnight hours across portions of eastern PA and northern NJ...

Light precipitation is expected to occur after 8 PM across the
region and linger until around sunrise Monday. While rain showers
are possible southeast of the New Jersey Turnpike and Interstate
95 corridors, mixed precipitation is possible to the northwest.

In particular, a corridor of spotty light freezing rain may occur.
The greatest potential for freezing rain exists between Interstate
78 and the Pennsylvania and New Jersey Turnpikes. Further north of
Interstate 78, the potential freezing rain is less, with a greater
potential of light snow showers.

With temperatures ranging from the upper 20s to lower 30s across the
area, wintry precipitation may accumulate, especially on untreated
roads and walkways. Any accumulations should be very light. There
is the potential for freezing rain to result in a thin coating of
ice, and snowfall from a dusting to a half inch.

There is still considerable uncertainty in the forecast, due to the
spotty and light nature of the precipitation.
