PHILADELPHIA (CBS) — The calendar may say April, but Mother Nature does not agree. We are tracking a late-season snow on the way. This won’t be the first snow we’ve ever seen in April. In fact, our largest spring snowstorm occurred during the month of April (back in 1915).
A winter weather advisory has been issued for this spring snow event and goes into effect at midnight tonight through 1 p.m. Monday afternoon. It includes portions of South Jersey, northern Delaware, and Southeast Pennsylvania.
This will be a very fast moving system and the key timing for when precipitation will impact us will be between 3 a.m. and 10 a.m. Monday. A lot of locations will start out with rain or a wintry mix that will then transition to a wet snow.
Accumulation will occur mainly on grassy surfaces given how warm it has been lately. A general coating to 2 inches can be expected around Philadelphia with some higher amounts north and west.
