In Philadelphia, the airport is reporting light snow and sleet this morning, as well as delays into New York City. 

According to the latest forecast from Accuweather, the quick-moving snowstorm is expected to move through the mid-Atlantic and into southern New England Monday morning, with three to six inches of snow expected in communities along the storm’s path. That includes eastern Pennsylvania, New Jersey and Massachusetts on Monday morning, as well as wet and slushy conditions in Philadelphia and Boston
