Philadelphia Feels the Grip of Winter’s Icy Hand

It’s been a mild winter, right up until early Monday evening. And granted, the 1.4 inches of snow that fell on Philadelphia International Airport overnight doesn’t exactly count as a blizzard—if neighborhood residents go to battle over dug-out parking spots on this one, we’ll not feel sorry for them. But it feels very, very cold out there right now! The roads got icy and scary on the roads overnight!

Our friends at say:

Expect a rather cold and windy day. Temperatures hanging out in the 19-24 range throughout the Delaware Valley during the course of the day, wind chills generally between 4 and 14. Tonight features lows in the mid teens in the city, around 10 in the outer burbs near Quakertown, and in the single digits in the Lehigh Valley and Poconos.

And Fox 29 says it’s going to stay wintry for a bit:

By Tuesday, the cold air will be felt, as temperatures could drop into the teens. By the end of the week, a storm system is expected to reach our area, which could bring with it a wintry mix.

In other words: Try to stay warm.
