VERY COLD ARCTIC AIR MOVES IN THIS WEEK !

The Coldest Air Mass of the season, will chill the Delaware Valley for much of this week: Feb 5th through Feb 9th. Mainly Dry conditions, but a chance for flurries or a period of light snow for Tuesday Night into Wednesday morning.

FORECAST: For SE PA, NJ, and DE. (The Delaware Valley)
FEB 5th - FEB 9th.


As we start the week on Monday, we'll be feeling the effects of an Arctic Air Mass pressing Southeastward from Canada. The coldest of this air will be visiting our region between Monday and Wednesday, but continued cold through the entire week.

On Monday morning temperatures will be 5 to 10 Degrees and increasing winds out of the NW at 15 to 25 MPH, will bring wind chill values of -15 to -25 Degrees so bundle up folks. Temperatures will only recover to the upper teens on Monday afternoon, with continued windy conditions.

For Tuesday and Wednesday: Temperatures will continue bitter cold with Overnight Lows of 5 to 10 Degrees, and Daytime High's in the low 20's.

On Thursday and Friday the cold air will ease up some, as Highs recover to near 30, and Lows in the mid teens, and lower 20's. A weak upper level disturbance or (Weak Clipper) will approach from the west on Tuesday, bringing the chance for some Flurries, or even a period of Light Snow, Tuesday Night into early Wednesday Morning. Accumulations will be light if any, as this system passes to our south. Areas in Southern NJ and DE will have the best chance of seeing a touch of snow.

I'll be doing an update on Tuesday, pertaining to the Clipper system for Tuesday Night into Wednesday morning, and have some thoughts for the upcoming weekend.

Take Care,
Ruggie
