The warm air aloft and at the surface may limit snow totals south and east of Philadelphia, but in the north and west suburbs an additional 3-6″ of snow will fall (locally higher amounts possible), pushing total snowfall amounts in some spots into the 18-22″ range.
It’s not over yet. Another thump of snow will rumble through this evening and tonight as the back edge of the storm moves through, and these bands will intensify as another coastal low deepens offshore.
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.
This storm will have all the hallmarks of a true nor’easter – howling winds, heavy snow, strong waves along the coast, and unlike the storms we dealt with in January that were all snow and high-ratio snow at that, this one will have mixing issues.
By the time Monday rolls around, we may be even more tired of seeing snow than we are already, if that’s at all possible!
In the wake of Tuesday’s crippling ice storm, the worst winter storm in PECO’s history with well more than half a million powerless, many remain away from their homes due to lack of heat. And the chill isn’t departing the area anytime soon, with Arctic high pressure in control through the end of the week. Temperatures tonight dip into the 20’s, and barely get above freezing tomorrow – a bit of melting, perhaps, but not enough to rid the area of much snow or ice.
In the wake of an ice storm that dumped up to a full HALF INCH of ice on portions of the region, many people this evening are without heat and electricity as temperatures plummet into the 20′s.
The winter of over-performing storms continues, with a system that blasted the area today with well over half a foot of heavy, wet snow.

As the American Red Cross tells us, when you are trying to stay warm, it’s always important to stay safe.
We’ll enjoy cold but quiet weather for the first day of 2014, and then everything changes as two areas of low pressure set their sights on the area.
The nice streak of weather will continue through the weekend, but next week, we could finally see some rain move back into the area.
The Harvest Moon tends to rise earlier than other full moons, so moonrise often occurs around sunset. This often gives the moon a reddish cast, and as it’s rising, it appears very large and imposing.
