@eastonwx  might hear or see something non-liquid at the start.  Advisories are up for the Poconos & far northwest NJ more for ice, than sleet and snow.

NAM 3km, iceist solution and it is rarely 1:1, but it doesn't take much if any ice to cause traveling problems.

I hope I can stay up for it Tony. Is this a case where some of these lower lying valleys hang on to the frozen stuff longer? If so, maybe I'll see evidence of it early in the morning!

This looks in your area, more of a what if at the start.  That cold layer at 950mb as odd as it sounds favors higher terrain locations to stay icier longer which so happen to be at that height (MPO, et al).

Frozen may be a no-show but something to track at least!

From this morning's AFD:

However expect cooler air in the low levels to hang tight for a time across our northern zones...areas roughly near and especially north of the I-78 corridor. Expect precip to start as snow or sleet in this area and it could even fall moderate to heavy for a brief time before changing to freezing rain and eventually rain from south to north. However by Sunday morning still think areas roughly along and north of I-80 may be hanging on to freezing rain with mostly rain to the south.

If it were a sunny day, it would be warm enough for 70F.    The ICeON gives you a high of 53F,  PHL 57F.   Welcome to the first day this met spring of busting max temp forecasts.

.87" and starting to wind down. Light rain falling now.

Snow also laughing at the pitiful attempt by the rain to wash it away. Still hanging in there!
