This National Weather Service map shows expected snowfall totals for the Philadelphia region for Saturday, Jan. 25.

A fast-moving Arctic front is moving through this afternoon and early evening with a band of snow.

We are not looking at a major snow event here, however it looks like enough to produce some slick roadways and make for some difficult travel for your Saturday afternoon and early evening plans.

Temperatures will remain in the 20s so the snow is applying a new coat of white across the region.

The real story here is that temperatures will never climb above the freezing mark for the rest of January. Can you say cabin fever?!
