We may see a little bit more snow, but not until later in the season, according to the long-range winter forecast from AccuWeather.
Long-range forecaster Paul Pastelok says we shouldn’t expect bitter cold temperatures or much in the way of snow for the rest of this year.

And he expects a warm-up in December.
“I think December is least likely to see much snowfall,” Pastelok tells KYW Newsradio. “Maybe toward the very end, near the holidays, we may sneak in a storm, but I think it’s mostly for the interior sections. Our highest probability of getting a significant snow event right now could come not until late January or February.”
Pastelok is forecasting that the Philadelphia area could see overall snow accumulations running in the mid-teens. Last winter, Philadelphia recorded a total of eight inches of snow.MORE NEWS: Poll Workers At Kimmel Center Say Pa. Primary Election Turnout Down Considerably From 2020 Presidential Campaign
