Keep the rain gear and jackets handy for your Friday evening out. A bit messy, unfortunately, for First Friday activities. Rain will change to a wintry mix tonight in the Poconos with a light slushy accumulation overnight.
We receive a dry break on Saturday, and the chance of a Sunday wintry mix into the afternoon and evening. A light coating could occur for some before a changeover to rain. A challenging trip to and from the Linc for the Eagles game!
