    Snow will be moving in Tuesday afternoon, but the seven day forecast is looking much warmer. (Published Tuesday, Mar 25, 2014)

    Spring may be here, but winter isn't done with our area just yet. A nor’easter is expected to impact the region Tuesday.

    Most of the day Tuesday, temperatures will be above freezing limiting accumulation to colder grassy areas. But as it gets colder Tuesday evening, snow is likely to stick to roads and sidewalks making for slippery conditions into Wednesday morning.

    Current models are indicating 1 to 3 inches of snow for much of our area.

    Some areas north and west of Philadelphia may see more snow than those closer to the city. Snow is  expected to begin between 11 a.m. and 2 p.m., A wintry mix of snow and some rain will stretch across parts of Delaware and southern New Jersey beginning around 2 p.m. Snow, with some accumulation, will fall between 7 p.m. and 3 a.m. in the Philly area.

    "The Nor'easter looks like it will stay offshore just enought to prevent out area from getting clobbered," said Glenn "Hurricane" Schwartz. "A closer track to the coast would have made things much worse."

    Wet weather will likely end before sunrise Wednesday morning, but the gusty winds will just be getting started. The entire region will experience strong, gusty winds peaking near 40 mph keeping Wednesday’s temps in the 30s and low 40s -- well below normal highs for this time, which should be in the 50s.

    More wet weather is expected at the end of the week, by then however, we will warm into the 60s.
