Tornadoes Rip Through Several States

This week has been a wild one across the Midwest and the Southern United States. Since Tuesday there have been over 100 tornado reports which have claimed over a dozen lives and destroyed millions in property.



Big Weekend Storm?

Rumors are flying about a big weekend storm but with a snow-starved winter such as this, I’m not buying into it just yet.



1-3″ of Snow Saturday

1-3″, Ha! We’ve seen much worse during the month of February. In fact, on this day in 2010, Philadelphia received 15.8 inches of snow and that was less than a week after a winter storm dumped 28.5 inches of the white stuff.



Light Snow In The Forecast

So far, its been a very disappointing winter for snow lovers. Only 2.8 inches of snow has been recorded in Philadelphia since October. Now, the CBS3 Eyewitness Weather Team is tracking a system that has the potential to bring us a bit more of the white stuff.
