Light Snow In The Forecast
By Steven Strouss
So far, its been a very disappointing winter for snow lovers. Only 2.8 inches of snow has been recorded in Philadelphia since October. Now, the CBS3 Eyewitness Weather Team is tracking a system that has the potential to bring us a bit more of the white stuff.
A weak area of low pressure in the nations midsection will move east Wednesday afternoon and bring rain and snow showers to the Delaware Valley. Light snow will likely begin after 2pm and continue through the evening commute. Don’t expect any measurable accumulations on the roads but traffic may be slower than usual on your way home Wednesday.
Grassy and non-paved surfaces in and around the city may receive a coating to an inch. Areas mainly south of Philadelphia will see the wet snow mix with rain. The system will pull away late Wednesday night and behind it we expect sunshine for Thursday and Friday.
There is another chance for light snow on Saturday as a cold front sweeps through the Northeast U.S. A shot of much colder air will follow and temperatures will struggle to climb out of the 30s this weekend and into the beginning of next week.
If you are looking for more significant snow and colder weather, head to Europe where record amounts have recently occured in Bosnia, Greece, Italy, Croatia and Serbia to name a few.
