The National Weather Service has issued a winter weather advisory for Southeastern Pennsylvania in advance of a Nor'Easter storm expected to arrive early Wednesday.

According to weather officials, 1 to 2 inches of snow could fall north and west of Philadelphia but, generally, less than one inch should occur south and east.
During rush hour Wednesday morning, it should begin to rain, or snow) with precipitation increasing throughout the day. It's expected to be heaviest in early evening.
Overnight into Thursday, it could become all snow before gradually tapering off.
"As temperatures cool back toward freezing on Wednesday night there could be some accumulation on road services. Treated roadways should remain mostly ice free," the announcement said.
Travel difficulties could occur no matter what form the wintery mix takes.
"Be prepared for slippery roads and limited visibilities. Use caution while driving," the announcement said.
