Keeping an Eye on Coastal Storm For Wed Night into Thursday Morning: Wet Snow Threat for Del Valley to NYC.

Update: 5:00 PM
Tuesday: 12-6-2011
My Final Call for Delaware Valley

The threat of accumulationg wet snow is now over for The Delaware Valley and NYC. Time to put a fork in this one guys.

This Storm will track too close to the DE and NJ Coastline and prevent the colder air to come along the Coastal Plain. This will also be a fast moving storm system and should be over by later Wednesday night into early Thursday morning further north. The Rain will be quite heavy at times during Wednesday night and some localized street flooding is possible.

The Rain could change to a brief period of wet snow before ending later Wednesday night for the PHL area and nearby suburbs of Northern DE and interior SJ. No Accumulations.

For the far northern and western suburbs of PHL:

A Coating to perhaps 1" can be expaected with a few hours of wet snow later Wednesday Night before ending.

For The Lehigh Valley:

1"-2" of snow accumulations can be expected as rain changes to snow towards midnight and ends by early Thursday morning.

The Pocono's and NW NJ:
2" to 5" of snow Accumulation can be expected Wednesday night into Early Thursday morning.

Take care,
Ruggie

Hi All,
I just wanted to do a quick update this morning. I'm keeping a close eye on a coastal storm threat for Wednesday night into Thursday morning. Colder air will be filtering into the region later Wednesday into Wednesday night , as a coastal storm develops near the VA coast and then move Northeast.

Rain will develop Wednesday night, then likely mix with and change to wet snow during the overnight hours and continue into Thursday morning. Some of the heavier precip amounts will fall over DE and NJ as coastal should remain 150-250 miles offshore. This is a favorable track, especially for this time of the year to see snow along the coastal Plain of Del Valley to NYC areas. I'll have more on this snow threat as things progress and the track of storm becomes more evident. I will say the timing is good and some light snow accumulations are possible from SE PA, Parts of DE, and interior Southern and Central NJ.

Stay tuned ! Check my tweets as well, for the latest information.
