Saturday Night: Partly cloudy, with a low around 13. At night, there was to be a low of around 35 degrees.

The precipitation falling across the suddenly balmy Philadelphia region on Friday will likely end before temperatures plummet on Saturday morning, so no snow on Gameday, but there is a potential for snow accumulation on Tuesday or Wednesday. Temperatures will fall into the lower 30s and below freezing early tonight, with a transition to all snow overnight.

The watch is in effect from Thursday night through Saturday night.

"It's more like a lack of cold", Masters said. Be prepared for heavy rain into the evening commute as highs soar into the mid to upper 50s. Next chance for snow? There's nearly no doubt we're going to have some street and basement flooding.

An AccuWeather projection shows a high of 24 with a low of zero for today, as snow tapers off with north-northwest winds gusting 19 miles per hour.

Saturday: A 50 percent chance of rain, mainly before 9 a.m.

After that, however, it's back to below-freezing temperatures.

THURSDAY: Partly cloudy skies develop, with a high temperature of 28 degrees.
