Sunday Storm…A Close Call
By Justin Drabick
It seems like Presidents Day weekend is a magnet for snowstorm potential. There have been some historical storms this time of year for the Delaware Valley.
This year was a close call. All of the ingredients for a snowstorm in the Delaware Valley did not come together this weekend. The subtropical jet stream finally came alive providing the southern moisture, but the interaction with a northern jet stream disturbance and storm track did not play out to produce a good east coast snowstorm.
The northern most edge of the precipitation of rain and snow will make it about 60-70 miles just south of Philadelphia clipping parts of southern Delaware and possibly Cape May County, NJ overnight.
Behind the storm, sunshine and milder temperatures return for Presidents Day. Temperatures will continue to moderate through the week with Spring-like temperatures returning to the forecast.
