The storms came in fast and furious. Strong winds with gusts up to 70 mph in some places from New Jersey to Delaware and Chester counties uprooted trees, causing branches to fall and downing power lines.
Why are temperatures so chilly all of a sudden? A ‘backdoor’ front is now to the south of us, allowing an onshore flow to invade the Delaware Valley.
Winter and Spring are battling it out today as a classic early Spring clipper system is bringing rain and even some snow in the mountains today.
Today we start off with a good deal of sunshine, but clouds will quickly take over later this morning as a clipper-like system speeds across the eastern states.
Morning sunshine is beginning to give way to clouds, in advance of a warm front that is currently draped across central Pennsylvania.
No Forecast? Well, not actually No Forecast, but a forecast of No. No snow, no shoveling, no ice, no freezing rain, no storms tomorrow, no problem.
A soaking rain will overspread the region around midnight and continue, heavy at times, through Saturday.
Clouds are moving in ahead of a rain storm that will be impacting the Delaware Valley today. But with temperatures above 50° expected once again, who’s complaining???
If it is possible to make time fly as we did overnight, why does the weather just trudge along?
Big deal, it’s March. It might as well be January or February as the weather is stuck firmly in winter mode.
So apparently the weather has a calendar, and when it sees that it is the weekend, it brings on some kind of messy weather event. This weekend is no different.
A storm system currently over the deep south bringing rain and snow will track northeast off the southeast coast Thursday morning. The storm will brush our southern viewing area with a quick round of snow early Thursday morning.
Free water ice, everyone. All over the roads, the walkways, parking lots, steps, etc. No flavors except “ouch,” if you end up slipping on it.
The calendar says it all – if it is close to a weekend, than the weather is either lousy or getting there. This weekend is no exception.
After a morning with near-record lows and highs only in the teens (almost 30 degrees below average), we shift our attention to a storm brewing to the west that will bring another messy mixed bag of winter weather to the area late Saturday afternoon and evening.
