Slushy Monday ahead for Philadelphia region


If March comes in like a lion and out like a lamb, the middle of the month appears to be leaning toward the lion.

Forecasters are calling for a mix of rain, sleet and snow in the Philadelphia region today.

The National Weather Service says a bit of snow is possible, most likely between noon and 4 p.m. But because temperatures should remain above freezing, any snow would melt soon after hitting the ground.

Sleet could be in the mix from noon until 7 p.m., and rain is likely from noon through the evening and overnight.

Any accumulation from snow and sleet should be less than an inch, according to the weather service. After 8 p.m., the precipitation should turn to all rain.

The weather service says there's a 90 percent chance of precipitation during the day, and a 100 percent chance in the evening hours.

The high temperature today is expected to be 41 degrees.
