Mother Nature is soaking the region again today with over five inches of rain in parts of the region.
When it rains it pours, at least lately. This month was the wettest June on record in Philadelphia and more heavy rain is expected as we head into Sunday afternoon right through Tuesday.
Since the beginning of the month, the region has experienced its most extreme weather since Hurricane Sandy slammed into our coastline last October.
Andrea is currently spinning in the Gulf of Mexico about 300 miles southwest of Tampa, Florida.
A beautiful end to the work week, and one of those days you’ll want to enjoy while you can … because it won’t last long!
Mild weather will continue Friday, then the winter chill returns over the weekend, with the chance of more snow!
The snow will continue through the early morning hours, with areas of locally heavier snow.
Some leftover stubborn cold air will remain in place Monday morning. This will allow for a period of light snow, sleet and freezing rain as the warm front runs into the remaining cold air as lows drop into the mid 20s early Monday.
Expect a mix of light snow, sleet or freezing rain & drizzle to arrive 6-8 AM Monday. A coating of snow and light ice accumulation is possible if the cold air remains in place long enough.
The coldest air thus far this season is taking over, and being reinforced by a quickly evolving and fast-moving system that will also usher in a little light snow mainly late this evening, just enough to drop a nuisance coating across the Delaware Valley.
We have been keeping an eye on a developing storm tonight which has prompted Winter Storm Watches across southern portions of our viewing area. An area of low pressure will ride up along a stalled front on Thursday as colder air digs in from the north. We’ll see plenty of clouds during the day in Philadelphia but the storm will have a difficult time spreading moisture this far north.
A large storm is sweeping across the country this Christmas Day with Snow, Ice & Heavy Rain.
Temperatures in the Delaware Valley soared into the upper 60s this afternoon and it feels more like spring than December.
The past few days have been colder than average with highs only in the 40s with some flurries around, but a better chance to see some widespread snow will arrive on Tuesday.
A rare and powerful November nor’easter has been impacting the eastern seaboard all day long, but if you’re in the city or the western suburbs, you likely aren’t that impressed with your snowfall amounts.
