The Flood Watch remains in effect through Thursday morning.
It was a warm start to the weekend with high temperatures reaching the low 70s on Saturday.
Winds will die down rapidly this evening into tonight, eventually becoming calm. And as a system approaches from the west, we can expect more moisture in the air leading to less risky conditions.
High pressure will build in behind the system for the weekend and will bring us much nicer weather.
A spring storm will bring more snow Tuesday, as cold air stays in place.
The cold high pressure system that brought the sunshine today across the Delaware Valley will keep the cold air locked in place tonight allowing for more snow.
Heavy snow will continue to fall through the overnight hours and into the early morning, piling up well over 6 inches in many areas, with even higher amounts in our far north and west suburbs where the snow could pile up over a foot.
From driving snow that crippled traffic and caused accidents, to an ice storm that left more than a half million people in our region in the dark, the cost of this winter could be tallied in varied ways including serious inconveniences.
As moisture arrives overnight, temperatures will be warm enough for rain, then change over to snow as the colder air filters south and east.
Another winter blast blanketed the region Saturday with a modest covering of snow, but it still caused some problems for area residents.
Philadelphia has already made it to the 5th snowiest January of all time with 22.5”… and counting!
There are more snow opportunities during the next several days and even more biting wind chills
It has been a roller coaster week in weather and the ride is not over.
Despite the thawing temperatures, a Freezing Rain Advisory goes into effect overnight for most of the Delaware Valley, excluding southern DE and eastern NJ.
After two days of bone chilling cold, record low temperatures, and bitter wind chills, some of the Delaware Valley will finally climb above the freezing point on Thursday as the Polar Vortex retreats to the north.
