Philly Closes in on January Snow Record

Already the fourth-most snow in city history, with No. 3 in reach.

CBS 3 reports this is Philly’s fourth-snowiest January on record. “Philadelphia now has 24.7″ of snow so far this month. The #3 spot is not far away at 25.2″ which happened in January 2011. A chance for some scattered snow showers are possible on Monday with the next arctic cold front.”

Either way, it’ll probably be cold this week. “For the first time since last Tuesday, temperatures will break the freezing mark on Monday with highs in the mid 30s, ahead of the next cold front. As the front passes early Monday afternoon, a scattered snow shower is possible in some spots. Behind the front, the arctic air mass arrive Monday night with gusty winds with wind chill values below zero.”
