    Rain arrives for the second half of the work week.  Another fall-like blast of cool weather to follow for the weekend.

    Expect unsettled weather for the next two days. Humid today and tomorrow, with seasonable temperatures. The best chance for rain will be this afternoon & tonight, where we'll see on and off showers and thunderstorms.

    Clouds and showers linger though much of Friday.  We may still see a passing shower Saturday morning.  Unseasonably cool air returns this weekend.

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.
