Snow, Bitter Cold, More Snow

Snow moves out as temps take a dive

It's a triple-header, but not the kind most of us want to attend.

There are a lot of people who like snow (especially when it leads to school being canceled). But I don't hear too many people talk about how they like wind chills below zero.

First up was a nuisance snow overnight Thursday into Friday. It moved in fast, and moved out fast, giving us limited snowfall.

Philadelphia public and parochial schools had a two-hour delay.

There were a few inches in northern parts of our area, but that's about it. About 1 to 2 inches across the Philly area, with the higher amounts north of the city.

AreaSnowfall Totals
Southernmost Jersey, Atlantic City, DoverNothing to a dusting
Wilmington, Parts of South JerseyLess than an inch
Philadelphia, surrounding suburbs Parts of NJ1 to 2 inches
Allentown, Lancaster, Reading, Trenton, North & West Suburbs2 to 4 inches
Poconos4 to 5 inches

Second is an arctic blast that should deliver the coldest air of the season so far. Temperatures should fall during the day Friday while the wind increases.

The strong winds and cold temps mean you’ll need to dress for full winter Friday, even if it doesn't feel so cold. Wind chills could drop below zero in many areas Friday night.

The wind should be less of a factor starting Saturday, but the temperatures should be pretty low all the way through Monday. If we get a night with clear skies and light winds, temperatures could fall below zero in some spots, with single digit readings in the city.

And finally, another shot at snow next week, mainly Tuesday into Wednesday.

Computer models are varied this far ahead of the storm, which is nothing new. But the most reliable model overall, the European, suggests a significant snowstorm at minimum.

It's way too early to talk about possible inches of snow, but it does have much more potential than Friday's storm.
