Late October Snowfest To Bring Accumulating Snow to Parts Of The Delaware Valley !

Friday AM .... 10/28/11
Preliminary Thought For the Delaware Valley and NYC Areas.

These are my preliminary snowfall estimates for Saturday afternoon into Saturday Evening for the Delaware Valley, Lehigh Valley, The Poconos's and NYC areas.

Rain will move in later tonight and early Saturday as developing coastal storm along the M/A intensifies and moves NE to off the NJ coast by later Saturday. Rain will mix with and change to snow from west to east during Saturday into Saturday Evening. My preliminary snowfall estimates and forecast with zones are below.

For the NW Suburbs of PHL/SE PA
Rain will mix with and change to snow over the Northern and Western suburbs of PHL during the late morning hours. Mainly Wet snow during much of the afternoon and evening hours will bring 1" to 3" of snow accumulations.

For PHL/ Interior Southern NJ and Northern DE. (Also NYC Area)
Rain during Saturday morning will mix with snow during the early afternoon and change to snow by late afternoon. Wet snow into much of the evening hours will bring a Coating - 1" of snow accumulation is Possible.

Central DE to Coastal Southern NJ:
Rain on Saturday will mix with and possibly change to a brief period of snow before ending Saturday Evening. No Snow Accumulations.

The Pocono's and NW NJ:
Mainly Snow from later Saturday morning into Saturday Night. Total snow accumulations of 4" to 8" can be expected. Tree damage and power outages are possible !

Lehigh Valley Region:
3" to 6" can be expected for Allentown and Reading areas. Some tree damage and power outages are possible !

I'll have my Final Call with a Snowfall map around 7:00 PM this evening !

Take Care,
Ruggie
