NBC10 Meteorologist Bill Henley says it's a snowy scene out there this morning. The good news is that it won't look like that for long.
Be careful when you’re heading to work this morning. More snow moved into our area and while it won’t be much, it caused some slippery road conditions at the worst time.
The snow is expected to be heavier south of the city and lighter in points to the north and the Poconos. A Winter Weather Advisory is in effect for parts of South Jersey and Delaware through 1 p.m. on Wednesday. Snow began to move into parts our area before daybreak.
9 a.m. – 11 a.m. – Snow continues, small accumulation
11 a.m. – 1 p.m. – Snow ends, windy
There won’t be too much accumulation from the snow. Philly and the northern and western suburbs should only see a coating to 1 inch. South Jersey and coastal Delaware should only see 1 to 2 inches by midday. More than 1 inch had already fallen parts of Delaware, according to the National Weather Service.
Temperatures in the 20s caused the snow to stick, leading to slick spots in the morning. Use caution when you’re driving. The snow also delayed some incoming flights to Philadelphia International Airport.
There was also reports of spin-out crashes along area roadways including the Route 30 Bypass.
After the snow clears, Wednesday afternoon will be windy and cold with highs around 30 degrees.
Arctic air will then move into the area, leading to unseasonably low temperatures.
The high temperature for Thursday will only be 34 degrees and 26 degrees on Friday. The lows will be in the teens for both days. To put that in perspective, the average high temperature for this time of year in our area is 46 degrees.
Temperatures will rise a bit on Saturday with a high of 35. Sunday through Monday however another system will move into our area, bringing with it a mixture of snow ice and rain.
