PHILADELPHIA (CBS) – Winter Storm Warnings are in effect for Philadelphia and surrounding PA, NJ & DE suburbs Monday 6 a.m. – 7 p.m.  Winter Weather Advisories are in effect for the far NW suburbs, Lehigh Valley and Poconos those same times.
TIMING: Expect rain to begin from about 1-3 a.m. Monday morning, then changeover to snow by around 6 a.m.  Snow will continue through the morning and come to an end by mid-afternoon.  Extreme southern NJ, the NJ Shore and central DE will hold onto the rain longer.  The morning commute would be impacted with improving conditions for the evening commute.
AMOUNTS:  3-6″ of snow is expected for northern Delaware, Philadelphia, surrounding NJ suburbs on northward through the Poconos.  It is possible some areas across northern Chester, Bucks, Montgomery counties could see 7 or 8″ of snow.  Central Delaware and far southern NJ may see 1-3″ with around 1″ near the NJ Shore.  Exact amounts could change due to the exact storm track and temperatures.  A change in track by a few miles could make a big difference on what and how much an area sees.  Temperatures will be in the lower 30s Monday morning so this will be a heavier wet snow, compared to the lighter, fluffy, dry snow we had in the past several weeks.
Another storm will approach from the southwest late Tuesday night that could bring a mixture of snow, ice and rain initially, especially north and west of Philadelphia, before changing to all rain on Wednesday as temperatures rise into the 40s.
A third storm may impact us sometime next weekend.  As of now, the storm is looking more similar to Wednesday’s storm, starting as a snow, ice and rain then changing to rain as temperatures warm.  This storm is several days away to changes in the timing and precipitation types will change.
