    Rain at times expected tonight, Friday, and early Saturday. Another fall-like blast of cool weather to follow for the weekend.

    Expect unsettled weather through Saturday morning as waves of showers and thunderstorms move through the area.  Some of the storms may bring heavy downpours later this afternoon.

    It's still muggy out there. Things start to change tomorrow afternoon, as the rain clears out, and much cooler air moves in making it feel more like fall.  Sunday is nice with a cool breeze and unseasonably low temperatures which last though early next week.

PHILADELPHIA -

As a snowstorm takes aim at Philadelphia, the city's streets department says it will have 320 trucks out on the roads by Friday morning.

Roads have been pre-treated, and once 2 to 3 inches of snow are on the ground the plowing will begin.

If you have to go out tonight, the road crews ask that you give plenty of space between your vehicle and the plow truck.

Friday trash pickup has been suspended until next week.

Chief Highway Engineer Steve Lorenz shared more details during a news conference Thursday afternoon, which you can watch in the video above.

DelDOT says its been working to get one step ahead of the storm as well. It says roads are being pre-treated. It has 65,000 tons of salt at 20 locations throughout the state. And there are nearly 450 vehicles available to help with snow removal.

But officials urge everyone to stay indoors unless getting out is absolutely necessary.
