We begin April with high hopes after March 2014 left three snowstorms in its wake.
Expect from 1 to 3 inches of rain in our area, with a flood watch from Saturday afternoon through Sunday evening.
March is typically a very volatile month and this year is no exception.
A spring storm will bring more snow Tuesday, as cold air stays in place.
Thursday morning, with temperatures in the 20’s, and brutal winds, wind chills will be in the single digits in Philadelphia and its immediate suburbs. As you travel north the “feel like” readings will fall below zero!
But the most noticeable impact from this storm will be the brutal blast of cold air that will race in behind the front.
A rude winter awakening looms on the horizon, so enjoy the warmth while you can! Tuesday is providing a well-deserved forecast of quiet weather, some sun and mild temperatures in the low 60′s (our normal high is 51.)
It might be meteorological spring today, but everything else points to the dead of winter.
After a frigid Friday, temperatures rebound ever so slightly as we welcome in March this weekend, but we will also welcome yet another winter storm, our 15th of the season.
One last day of the delicious taste of spring before a bitter taste of winter returns this week.
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.
Flooding has been reported in some areas as the winter storm continues to move across the region.
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.
