A Cold Weekend On Tap ! Some Light Snow & Flurries For Southern Parts Of The Delaware Valley into MD & Parts of VA.

Friday 3/25/11
5:00 PM
My Forecast and discussion for:
The Delaware Valley and M/A States.

The storm system for this weekend continues to trend further south with most computer models since last night and this morning. But some snow and mixed precip will still effect much of the Central M/A into portions of the Delaware Valley, mainly south of PHL.

An area of low pressure will move east from the TN Valley tomorrow, and then off the NC coast Sunday morning. With cold air in place due to a strong P/V over SE Canada and into northern NE, this will allow for a nice opportunity for a late March snow event, from much of WV and VA into MD, DE, and Southern NJ.

Light/Moderate Snow and some mixed precip will spread into VA Saturday night, and then east to the coast by early Sunday morning. All precipitation will taper off and end during Sunday afternoon as this storm system zips east and well offshore by Sunday night.

My latest thoughts and call :

North and West of PHL will miss out with only some flurries in the nearby northern and western suburbs, no accumulations can be expected.

For PHL and points south and east into Northern DE, and much of Southern NJ, these areas will see a period of light snow and flurries during later Saturday night into Sunday morning. These areas will probably see a Coating of snow . Any snow will mix with rain before ending by early afternoon. A cloudy and Chilly day with highs in the Upper 30's.

Further South over Central/Southern DE and Cape May Co NJ: These areas will have the best chance for a period of Light Snow, Mainly during Sunday morning, A general Coating to 2" of snow accumulation is possible. This zone Coating to 2" also includes Central and Northern MD (BAL)

For our friends in Central and Northern VA, and into parts of East Central & Southeastern MD these areas will see a general 2"- 4" of snow accumulation for Saturday night into Sunday AM. Northwestern parts of VA in the Mountains, could see 3"-6" and will be the winners for this late March snow event.
