Bolaris: Winter Is on the Way

Philly forecaster says Arctic air this week, winter storm next.

Over at, John Bolaris is forecasting the arrival of winter air this week, followed by a winter storm next week.

Arctic air starts to arrive in the Philadelphia region late Thursday. Temps will tumble Thursday night and bring in the chance of seeing our first flakes in the city — either very late Thursday night or early Friday morning. Flurries and or snow showers are in my forecast.

Friday will be windy and very cold with temperatures ranging between 39 and 43 degrees.

Next Monday: A storm could clip us with a wintry mix for some.

Next Thursday: Possible winter-type storm.

Probably time to pull out all your winter clothes and finally store away the shorts and tank tops: Winter’s coming. John Bolaris says so.
