Scattered snow showers are possible Thursday morning, mainly north and west of Philadelphia, but will bring no more than a coating to 1″. Highest amounts will be in the Poconos and although this is a weak system, it may still be enough to produce slick spots during the morning commute so use caution and allow extra time to get to your destination.
Partly sunny skies will return for Wednesday and it will be breezy with wind gusts up to 25 mph. However, high temperatures remain above average for one more day with highs in the lower 50s.
Areas of fog will greet us Friday morning, some will be locally dense, so take it slow during the morning commute.
Philadelphia has received over 40 inches of snow this winter and is currently less than 3″ away from entering the top 10 list of all time record winter seasons.
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.
