My Call and Forecast by Regions.

Another bout of Winter weather is on the way for the Delaware Valley. I'm pressed for time and will give my forecast and estimates for several regions. For the folks in The Lehigh Valley Region/The Pocono's, and NW NJ, be prepared now, for a major Icestorm along with possible tree and wire damage with power outages during Tuesday night into Wednesday morning !

For PHL and points South and East into Northern DE and Interior Southern NJ.

Light snow will move into the area towards midnight with around and inch or so possible by morning. This light snow will change to sleet and freezing rain from south to north during the mid and late morning hours.

Total snow accumulations before the change over will be 1"-2", then all precip. changes to freezing rain and rain during Tuesday afternoon into Tuesday night. Some light to moderate ice accumulations possible over PHL/ Northern DE, and interior sections of Southern NJ.

For Central/Southern DE into Extreme southern NJ, a brief period of snow and sleet overnight turns to rain on Tuesday and continues into Wednesday. little or no snow and ice accumulations can be expected in these areas.

SE PA (North and West of PHL) into Central NJ > from Trenton North.

Expect 2"- 4" of snow accumulation starting tonight and continuing into much of Tuesday, then followed by a prolonged period of freezing rain, with moderate to significant ice accumulations during Tuesday night. Expect some power outages, and tree limbs to come down with near .25" ice accumulations. Precip gradually turns to rain during Wednesday.

The Lehigh Valley to The Pocono's into Northern NJ. (Ouch)

Significant Snow and Ice accumulations can be expected. > Prepare NOW !
Snow for much of tonight into Tuesday with 3"-6" of snow accumulations. This turns to Sleet and freezing rain Tuesday night into Wednesday AM with Significant to Severe Icing expected. Prepare now for Power Outages with Trees/branches and wires coming down with this event. Total Ice accumulations will be .25" to .50". Heaviest Icing from near the Pocono's to NW NJ.

Take Care,
Ruggie
