An active weather pattern is developing for the Philadelphia and New York City metropolitan areas that will bring rain and snow to the region.
For today, a stationary front with waves of low pressure will produce periods of rain through this afternoon. As the low pressure systems consolidate off the New Jersey coast this afternoon, the stationary front will drop south as a cold front with colder air moving into the region. As a result, temperatures will fall from the morning highs of the 50's into the 30's and 40's this afternoon. Most locations can expect a chilly rain, however for locations above 1,000 feet in elevation, rain will mix with snow at times with minor accumulations on cold surfaces.
