NWS Calling for 3 to 4 Inches of Snow in Philly; More in Western ’Burbs
While we didn’t see much snow in Philly last night or today (city officials even resumed trash service), we may not be in the clear just yet. As of 4:30 p.m., the National Weather Service was predicting 3 to 4 inches of snow in Philadelphia and anywhere from 4 to 8 inches in parts of the surrounding counties with bigger accumulations forecast in the western suburbs. A winter weather advisory remains in effect until 6 a.m. Wednesday morning in Philadelphia, Montgomery and Bucks counties. A winter storm warning is in effect until 6 a.m. in Delaware and Chester counties.
While the flurries intensify over the city and the suburbs, the coast is dealing with flooding.
The flooding which started yesterday continued today, even reaching Philadelphia. The Weatherboy snapped this photo near the Ben Franklin Bridge a few hours ago.
