Clouds will be on the increase late tonight, as low pressure over
the Rockies moves eastward into the central plains by Sunday morning.
This system will bring some light snow to the northern and western
sections of the Keystone state on Sunday. 

Highs Sunday will range from the mid to upper 20s across the
mountains, to the lower to mid 30s elsewhere. Light snow will reach
southeastern Pennsylvania by late afternoon. An inch or two of snow
will be possible by late Sunday afternoon across the mountains.

A mixture of snow and rain will develop across the region Sunday
night, as the low tracks northeast across the central Great Lakes.
Little temperature change is expected Sunday night, before
temperatures climb above freezing across the Keystone state on
Monday. Most of the precipitation will taper off from west to east
by lunch time on Monday.

Much colder air will move into the area for the later part of next
week, as a large high pressure system moves southeast from western
Canada.
