Philadelphia Weather: Cloudy Afternoon Anticipated Across Delaware Valley As Morning Rain Tapers Off

PHILADELPHIA (CBS) -- All ice storm warnings and winter weather advisories have been cancelled across Southeastern Pennsylvania Tuesday morning. Steady rain will continue to push through the region during the early morning hours before tapering off from west to east.

Points far north and west of the city are still dealing with freezing rain as temperatures hold steady, near freezing.

The morning commute is expected to be just rain for the entire Philadelphia area, even far northwest -- although folks there may be waking up to power outages thanks to a prolonged period of overnight icing.

The major concern for these areas far north and west. By mid-morning, parts of the Lehigh Valley and the Poconos may see ice accumulations of 0.25" to o.50".

Travel may be difficult to near impossible and power outages are likely. The question will be to what extent as outages and tree damage will result from the weight of the ice alone.

Temperatures across South Jersey will climb into the mid 50s whereas west of I-95, temperatures will stay in the 30s. The cold air reinforced by a decent snowpack is still in place.

Any and all precipitation wraps up by 10 a.m.

Another winter storm is expected to arrive in the region on Thursday which will likely yield accumulating snow then a transition to a wintry mix and rain.
