All Philadelphia and Archdiocesan schools will be closed tomorrow due to a winter weather advisory warning for the Delaware Valley.

The advisory goes into effect at 7 a.m. Wednesday morning and lasts through 9 p.m. that evening. A wintry mix of snow and rain is expected to bring 2 to 4 inches of snow to the Philadelphia, South Jersey and northern Delaware region.

Some icy conditions are anticipated to create slippery conditions on roads like I-95 on both the morning and evening commutes.

A winter storm warning for parts of Chester, Montgomery and Berks counties goes into effect 10 a.m. Wednesday through 1 a.m. Thursday. A heavy mix of rain and snow is anticipated with a total of 3 to 6 inches of snow. Icy conditions are expected that could make traveling difficult especially during the evening commute.
