Spring is here, but the winter weather isn’t quite done yet. A nor’easter is approaching our area and should hit parts of the region on Tuesday.
With temperatures above freezing, the storm will likely start as a wintry mix in Philly and the north and west suburbs before changing over to snow, while South Jersey and Delaware will see more rainfall.
The system should move out by Wednesday morning. Any accumulating snowfall will likely occur Tuesday night since that will be when the system is most active.
We wish this forecast was fake.
We got to a high of 68 in Philadelphia on Saturday, a nice rebound from 35 degrees in the morning. Our normal high for this time of year is 55.
Then, we’ll be breaking back out the winter coats as the real arctic air starts to settle in toward Monday morning. We’ll start the day in the teens and 20s, and highs will only be in the 30s.
That's going to be the setup for our next storm system. You've got the cold air in place and a lot of moisture will get pulled in. This does look to be one of your classic Nor'easter, a very strong storm.
