PHILADELPHIA (WPVI) -- Meteorologist Adam Joseph says bundle up tonight as wind chills drop to the single digits and only rise to the teens Wednesday afternoon.

TONIGHT: Clearing as the cold winter winds move in. Lows drop to the teens for most, 21 for the city. However, you need to dress for zero to five degrees.



WEDNESDAY: It is a bright day, but wind chill values stay in the single digits and teens all day. High is 31, with most staying in the 20s.

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 37. 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. The biggest question is not will it happen, it is where does it track?

If it tucks into the New Jersey coast, we all get a moderate to major snowstorm.

If it develops a little later, this is a New England special, but still brings us a minor to moderate storm.

No matter the track we will see accumulating snow with the highest amounts in NJ.

We just need to fine-tune these models and their agreement on where it goes. This is going to be a massive storm over the ocean, so wind and coastal flooding is on the boards too. High 29.

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.
