Some Wet Snow and Mixed Precip for Late Tuesday Night into Wednesday: Light Accumulations Possible in Some Areas.

Monday: 3/1/10
Issued: 6:00 PM

Another round of some wet snow and mixed precip is likely for later Tuesday night into Wednesday for much of the Delaware Valley region. This will be another coastal storm, so areas near and east of PHL will see the best chance for some light snow accumulations and higher amount of precip.

A storm system now over the GOM will move to the SE coast on Tuesday, then NE and off the NJ coast on Wednesday. This storm will take a track further east and offshore, unlike our recent storms which tracked closer to the coast. So precip will be less substantial and only minor snow accumulations are possible. In addition temperatures at the surface will remain near, and above freezing later Tuesday night into Wednesday, which will also prevent much accumulation. These accumulations will be mainly on grassy surfaces, and roads will likely remain wet, so I expect no problems with road conditions for the Wednesday morning commute.

From Northern DE, Extreme SE PA, and into Southern and Central NJ, a Coating to near 1" of snow accumulation is possible from later Tuesday night into Wednesday morning as wet snow and mixed precip, overspread these areas. Periods of wet snow and rain will continue into the early afternoon hours. Lows Tuesday night will be in the lower 30's and Highs on Wednesday will be near 40.

After this storm moves out, We'll return to a drier pattern into the weekend and more seasonable temperatures in the mid 40's to near 50 degrees. Yes this will feel like a heat wave, but normal Highs for this time of the month are near 50. So enjoy the dry and milder weather from Thursday through Sunday. Partly Sunny days, and fair chilly nights will be the rule during this period.

Take Care,
Ruggie

Yoo Buck !

Thanks, but Like I've always said, At some point the weather will always beat you.

I have the grill, so bring them steaks man, Spring is coming ! Well maybe 1 more light to moderate snow event this month, before we close the book on a spectacular winter season.
