PHILADELPHIA -

A winter weather advisory is in effect for several counties in the Philadelphia area, South Jersey and portions of Delaware through early Thursday morning.

The winter weather advisory, issued by the National Weather Service, will remain in effect through 3 a.m. Thursday.

FOX 29 Chief Meteorologist Scott Williams says the first stage of the system arrived by Wednesday evening with widespread scattered showers. After 7 p.m., the temperatures began to drop and the rain and sleet began to change to snow.

FOX 29's Chris O'Connell reports 300 PennDOT trucks were scheduled to be on state interstates and major roads Wednesday night.

A PennDOT official says they haven't used their plows too much this season, but crews have used half of their salt supply due to the types of storms we've seen thus far this winter.

    NICE EASTER WEEKEND

    The first half of the holiday weekend has been great and Easter Sunday looks just as nice. Clouds thin out late tonight with temperatures falling back to the 40s.

    Initially it'll be jacket weather early Sunday morning but plenty of sunshine will warm us into the 60s by afternoon.  High temperatures will be a few degrees cooler than Saturday.

    It will be noticeably cooler and breezy at the shore with highs in the low 50s.  Quiet conditions continue into Monday.
