Light Snow Wednesday Morning
By Justin Drabick
PHILADELPHIA (CBS) — The weather pattern remains active as a few weak disturbances continue to move through the northern jet stream. One disturbance came through this morning bringing some snow showers to parts of the region. Reports of a trace to up to a half inch were reported this morning.
The next disturbance will move through Wednesday morning. Expect light snow to develop before daybreak and end mid-late morning on Wednesday. Around 1″ is possible around Philadelphia, with 1-2″ possible in Delaware and Southern NJ. A winter weather advisory is in effect for Delaware and far southern NJ from 4am – 1pm Wednesday. The snow won’t be heavy but it does have bad timing as it will impact the morning drive. Temperatures will be below freezing so slippery roads are expected with slower travel.
The arctic air mass will continue to settle into the mid-Atlantic over the next few days. High temperatures will be well below the average high of 47. Daytime highs will be in the 20s and 30s and lows in the teens and 20s through the weekend. There are signs that the colder air retreats a bit next week but the weather pattern remains active with more snow & rain chances early next week.
