We got to 79 in Philadelphia today, a very welcome 79, the first warm day of the year.
After being blown sideways on Saturday with winds that reached almost 40 miles an hour, the weather calms down today.
35 miles-an-hour is also the level of our wind speeds this Saturday.
By Sunday night, after a brief changeover to sleet, snow begins falling.
One last day of the delicious taste of spring before a bitter taste of winter returns this week.
Mostly dry today. And while the weather starts quietly on Monday, it ends up getting messy by late Monday night and early Tuesday.
Sore backs in the Delaware Valley get a mild stretching exercise today. Yes, more shoveling, especially north and west, but the lifting won’t be nearly as heavy as the Valentine Eve storm.
A little Alberta clipper has a Sunday afternoon trip planned for the Delaware Valley. It is packing light, with a relatively measly 1–3″ of snow expected.
Of all the weather ‘events’ this troublesome winter, the ones this weekend will be the tamest. A few little disturbances in the atmosphere can brush by the area bringing a nuisance amount of snow.
The National Weather Service pegs snow amounts Monday at 4 to 6 inches, but anywhere from less than 3 inches south to perhaps an isolated 6+ inches could occur.
Will it ever stop? Many people wonder that, after a brutally cold and difficult January. Another round of snow will eyeball the Philadelphia area and decide to go for it.
We had a lot of thawing to do after temperatures in the single numbers and below zero to start last week.
Three times in a week, snow and ice and rain pelt our tri-state area. This latest storm looks to bring all three precipitation types again today.
3 to 6 inches of snow could fall until a gradual changeover to rain overnight.
Saturday serves as a quiet transition day between Friday’s mild rain and Sunday’s cold wet. Computer models agree that wet weather moves in on Sunday, preceded by cloud cover early in the day.
