Get the latest AccuWeather forecast.
PHILADELPHIA (WPVI) -- Meteorologist Karen Rogers says wind chills will be in the teens most of today and we're tracking a large coastal storm that will bring snow for our weekend.

TODAY: It is a bright day, but wind chill values stay in the single digits and teens most of the day. High is 31.


THURSDAY: Temperatures remain very chilly under mostly sunny skies, high 34. Wind is much more tame, so not much wind chill.
FRIDAY: Mostly cloudy skies, high 38. We're tracking both an arctic front from the north and a coastal storm from the south that will impact the region beginning late Friday.

At first, we will see some snow showers develop from north to south late afternoon and evening. Then this front begins to link with a developing coastal storm overnight. At that point, the snow picks up in intensity.

SATURDAY: All eyes are on the coast for that strengthening storm. This is a powerful storm that will bring significant snow to the region.

Models have been wavering on exactly where the low sets up and how much snow we get.

The best chance for seeing over 6" of snow will be closer to the coast in South Jersey and Delaware.

But, at this point it looks like we have a good chance of seeing plowable even in the city.

We'll have more specifics later today as we fine tune the forecast.

Expect heavy snow to arrive for all Friday night. It will snow all day Saturday and wrap up Saturday evening.

Wind gusts could reach near 50mph in the city and near 60mph along the coast.

Coastal flooding will also be an issue.

It will be bitter cold with a high of just 27.

SUNDAY: Mostly sunny with an icy cold wind behind the storm. High 29 with wind chills in the teens.

MONDAY: Clouds mix with sun, high 38.

TUESDAY: It start to turn milder with partly sunny skies and a high of 44. Models suggest temps will stay mild for a few days, giving us a break from the cold.
