By

Feb 14 2007
What a messy couple of days! Yesterday we saw and earlier than expected snow which petered out by late afternoon only to be replaced by a rain/snow mixture.

Overnight the rain turned to sleet and freezing rain. This morning the Greater Philadelphia Region is under an Winter Weather Advisory plus an Ice Warning and Flood Warning. At some point today the precipitation is expected to turn to heavy rain and then slowly back to snow before ending sometime tonight. As of 5:00 a.m. all Philadelphia Public and Parochial Schools are closed today as are most schools in the region. You can check on your school or child's school using our Philadelphia Area School Closing Guide.
