The next storm will arrive later in the day Sunday. It might start as a mix, but then go all liquid on Sunday night. Northwest of Philadelphia, you could see a prolonged period of a wintry mix.
In the wake of that storm, another bitterly cold airmass will invade the region on Monday and Tuesday, and temperatures on Tuesday might actually turn out COLDER than today with highs of 10-15 degrees.
However, I will leave you with some good news. We could see milder temperatures by mid-January as the January thaw tries to kick in.

A storm arriving this afternoon will bring rain and then snow to the Pittsburgh district, the National Weather Service said today.
Rain will move in after 3 p.m. and intensify in the early evening, then change to a wintry mix around 9 or 10 p.m. before becoming all snow, NWS meteorologist John Darnley said. In Pittsburgh, as much as 2 inches of snow is possible by daybreak, with 3 to 4 inches possible in the Laurel Highlands.
