PHILADELPHIA (CBS) -- A fast-moving upper-level system swept across the region Wednesday, bringing rain and snow showers for many. Some locations even picked up on some light snow accumulations across the Lehigh Valley and Poconos.

The greatest accumulation reported was 1 inch in Salisbury Township in Lehigh County. A CBS Philadelphia viewer also reported up to a half inch of snow in Paoli, Pennsylvania, around noon.

The precipitation will continue to clear out of the region Wednesday afternoon and give way to mostly clear skies to start the night. Temperatures Wednesday afternoon will only peak in the low 40s before cooling back to near 30 degrees Thursday morning.

Thursday will continue to feature cooler-than-normal temps with highs in the low 40s. There will also be a small chance for a few snow flurries Thursday, but most likely north of Philadelphia.

By Friday temperatures will rebound to the 50s and then make their way to near 60 degrees on Sunday.

However, that'll come with the cost of rainy and very window conditions for the second half of the weekend.

Longer range models are even pointing toward widespread gusts of 50 to 60 mph along with 1-2 inches of rain.

Early next week will bring another deep cool down behind the front.
