PHILADELPHIA (CBS) — The start of meteorological winter kicks off Wednesday, but winter weather arrived a day early before the unofficial start to the winter season. Light snow showers are making their way across the northern half of the region Tuesday.
Grassy surfaces across the Lehigh Valley, Bucks County, and the Pocono Mountains could pick up about a half-inch of snow. A few flying flurries or spotty rain showers could sneak into our suburbs and pass I-95 through late afternoon.
