PHILADELPHIA (WPVI) -- Meteorologist Cecily Tynan says slick roads and reduced visibility could slow down the Thursday morning commute.

TONIGHT: Partly cloudy with a seasonably cool low of 28.

WEDNESDAY: Low pressure will cross through southern Canada and we'll switch our winds to the southwest out ahead of the next cold front. That will give us a one-day warm-up to 48 degrees. Skies will be mostly cloudy though.

THURSDAY: An Arctic front moves in late Wednesday night and we'll see a period of rain from around midnight to around 4am for the heart of the area. Then, from 4am on until around 10am we'll see it transition to a period of snow as temperatures fall behind the front. When it is snowing temperatures will be near or just above freezing so if it snows hard enough we could get some slushy/slippery conditions-especially side streets. The other issue will be reduced visibilities as the snow is falling during the morning commute. We are allowing for a general coating to 2" across the region. For all of these reasons we have issued an AccuWeather Alert for Thursday morning. The last flakes exit the coast around lunchtime and we may see some breaks of sun to end the day, but temperatures will be falling into the upper 20s by then. comes through late Wednesday night and then a period of light rain and snow looks likely in the early morning hours on Thursday into the morning commute. We hit an early high of 36, before temperatures fall.

FRIDAY: A frigid end to the workweek under mostly cloudy skies, high 26.

SATURDAY: Remaining chilly with clouds and some sun, high 29. We're watching a storm to the south that could bring us some snow depending on the track.

SUNDAY: Partly sunny and chilly, high 36.

MONDAY: Mostly sunny, high 32.

TUESDAY: Mostly cloudy with some snow showers or flurries, high 34.
