Good morning, all. If you are in the southern Poconos, northern New Jersey, and even across the Lehigh Valley in southeast Pennsylvania, snow has begun, and in some cases, visibility is down to under 1 mile! We expect snow to continue to develop to the south and east through the morning. Please be safe, and also please reply to this status to share with us your snowfall totals and observations. Thank you!

After a warm day with highs in the 50s and 60s, temperatures are falling off, and will continue to fall through Monday morning. Rain moves in from the west, but will change to snow late and continue through the morning commute.


Apr 01

US National Weather Service Philadelphia/Moun...

The forecast remains on track for the upcoming late season snowfall event late tonight and Monday morning. Even though temperatures right now are in the 60s and it's April, snow will come down heavy enough for a few hours early Monday morning to produce slippery road conditions, poor visibility and significant travel delays for the morning commute. The greatest likelihood for snow-covered roads will be in the slightly colder hilly terrain N/W of Philadelphia (a degree or two makes a huge difference). Our latest briefing package is available on our webpage: www.weather.gov/media/phi/current_briefing.pdf

Unfortunately, this isn't an April Fools' Day...

Unfortunately, this isn't an April Fools' Day joke... Snow is expected late tomorrow night into Monday morning. This will be a quick-hitting system with the bulk of the accumulating snow occurring in a 3-4 hour window somewhere between about 3 AM and 10 AM (depending on location). The highest probability for several inches of accumulation looks to be north and west of Philadelphia, especially in the higher elevations. Both snowfall rates and temperatures will play a huge role in terms of accumulations and impacts (especially for the urban I-95 corridor where air temperatures are forecast to remain above freezing during the event). There are signals for a narrow band of heavy snow to set up somewhere over the area early Monday morning. Snowfall rates (1”+ per hour) in this band would potentially be heavy enough to overcome the warm ground and allow for snow to start accumulating on roads. Snow-covered roads and poor visibility under this heavier snow band could cause hazardous driving conditions and significant travel delays for the Monday morning commute.

Good morning! The last day of March brings springtime weather to the region, with plenty of sunshine and highs in the 50s to low 60s! March 2018 was snowy. But how does it match up historically? Here are the Top 10 March snowfalls at our climate sites.

Good evening! The last of the showers associated with a cold frontal passage will exit the region within the next hour or two. Beyond this time, the remainder of the weekend through the day Sunday will feature quieter weather with sunshine and seasonable temperatures. We are watching a system for the Sunday night into early Monday time frame that does have the potential to bring the area some accumulating snow. However at this point a lot of uncertainty remains with this part of the forecast so please check back for updates over the weekend.

2 PM update: Good afternoon everyone. We have experienced some milder weather the past couple days and conditions have destabilized enough for convection to form. We are looking at weak line of thunderstorms moving east-northeast across the Chesapeake Bay into eastern Maryland and northern Delaware. While this line is likely to remain sub-severe, some lightning and gusty winds up to 50 mph are possible. The strongest gusts are likely to occur over the Chesapeake and Delaware Bays.

2 PM Thursday Update.... Good afternoon, sunshine has broken out with mild temperatures across southern parts of the forecast area however if you’re heading north toward the southern Poconos, areas of dense fog along with patchy drizzle continue to persist at this hour.

Good Wednesday evening NWS Mount Holly FB followers and visitors to NJ DE e Pa e MD. Thank you very-very much for your expressions and well wishes!! We should move forward and look ahead. We have a tussle between very warm air and cool air over area the next 36 hours, which will result in areas of rain, fog. It all clears out for a beautiful Saturday and probably a good Sunday. There's not much we can say or do about the first half of April. Like it or not, odds favor a mostly cold period between April 5 and 12 as graphically displayed in the ensemble below. The darker the shade of blue the more likely it will be cold at times, for April. Also, those ensembles are favoring a storm track from the lower Mississippi Valley into the northeast USA with above normal amounts precipitation. The second graphic, while not overwhelming in its expression of confidence for Days 6 ,7 (Monday-Tuesday), does hint that several inches of snow are "possible" in parts of eastern PA and nw NJ. Its tough to say when something sizable in the way of a wintry weather system will affect our area, but there is a "chance" for one more large scale, winter weather event (elevations) here in our area, between the 2nd and 12th. Maybe it wont occur, but the pattern will permit it. It certainly confidently implies that persistent springlike ABOVE NORMAL warmth is delayed, probably beyond the first half of April. The latter we're pretty sure of.

Hi everyone! Here is an update to the potential for freezing rain across far Northwest New Jersey and the Southern Poconos for this evening and overnight: a winter weather advisory has been issued for Sussex County, NJ and Carbon and Monroe Counties in PA. Rain will move in later this afternoon. After sunset, freezing rain is expected for locations near or above 1000 ft in elevation. There may be a temporary break in the precipitation late this evening, before another round moves in early Wednesday morning. Untreated surfaces, especially secondary roads and bridges could become slippery overnight and could linger into the start of the Wednesday morning commute. For the latest forecast, please visit www.weather.gov/phi (fill in your city, state in the upper left corner for the detailed forecast for your location). We would appreciate any reports of icing or slippery conditions. Feel free to post reports here.

Good Saturday evening NWS Mount Holly FB followers and visitors to NJ DEe PA and e MD. The week ahead: Nice Monday-Tuesday. By Thursday it will probably have been over 3 weeks since the daily temperature has averaged above normal. Thursday is the target day to break the consecutive day sub normal temperature streak. Thereafter, we can expect rain, probably Friday, and then a dry start to next weekend. Regarding winter: its not quite done. We could see a smattering of wintry weather in the Poconos Wednesday morning and Friday and even some flurries around here in s NJ/se PA tomorrow-Sunday morning. Now that the first week of baseball is as hand, there's usually some sort of wintry weather impact. This graphic sort of gives you an idea of what may be looming temperature wise across the northern United States the first week of April. It depicts very high confidence of a large pool of colder than normal air in Canada, seeping down into the northern USA.

Good Thursday Morning! Be safe this morning as some roads could still be slippery, and there are still some flurries and snow showers around early. Temperatures will rise into the lower 40's this afternoon across much of the region, allowing for some melting to occur. However, it will feel colder due to a brisk northwesterly wind. We would like to thank everyone who has sent us snowfall reports.
