An area of low pressure will track east across Pennsylvania later today and tonight, spreading light to moderate snow into the area.

The morning will remain dry, but cloudy, out ahead of this system. Snow should not arrive until sometime between 2-4 PM.

The snow will fall steadily through the late afternoon, evening, and overnight hours. The heaviest snow will be in the late afternoon and evening, when snowfall rates will be around or slightly over a half-inch per hour.

The snow will lighten up after midnight, and by dawn Saturday, will be limited to some light snow showers. In all, expect an inch or so of snow by sunset, and total snow amounts of 2-5 inches.
