The National Weather Service is calling for a system to move through the Shore area that will mainly produce rain, but could end with a small amount of snowfall.
After a mostly sunny day Wednesday with a forecast high of 47 degrees, the overnight hours will bring rain, mainly after 3 a.m. The low will not dip below freezing, keeping the precipitation rain, though the mercury will drop Thursday morning.
We're still watching a potential system for the weekend, though latest trends keep it a little more offshore. Before then, we have a "sneaky" system to get through late tomorrow night and Thursday morning – impacts to the morning commute are possible! #NJwx #PAwx #DEwx #MDwx pic.twitter.com/JSHlrVBbvL

Temperatures will absolutely plunge Thursday night, dropping to a low of just 14 degrees. Slight chances of snow will occur Friday and into the weekend, though there will be a mix of sun and clouds.
