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. We appreciate it very much, and if you have a final snowfall measurement feel free to post it here (don't forget to include your town/city). Thank you!

Good day neighbors! As you are shoveling tonight, contemplating your role in the community, as you all surely do, why not think about what you can do to participate in the 2018 Philly Spring Clean Up! The clean up is scheduled for April 7, and most people participate in the morning hours. Some info: A) If you'd like to register your block or a vacant lot, you can do that on the Streets Department website. By Registering, you make your project visible to other neighbors looking for something to get involved with. And, you get free supplies from the city, like brooms, rakes and most importantly: BAGS ** If you register a project, feel free to post it here for other near neighbors to see! Before and after photos get major likes. ** PROJECT SUBMISSIONS ARE DUE FRIDAY, MARCH 23!! B) If you don't have a project, you can look for on the Streets website for one near you. If you don't see one, refer to point A C) Streets will be around on that Saturday afternoon to take away bags upon bags of trash, as well as debris from alleys and lots. D) If you don't have a project, and you don't want to find one, by golly, grab a broom and a bag and just git out there! E) Watch this space for more news about special treats from East Point Breeze Neighbors for Cleaners and Greeners on April 7! http://www.philadelphiastreets.com/philly-spring-cleanup/

    Philadelphia Streets:
    Spring has sprung and the cleaning season has begun. The 11th Annual Philly Spring Cleanup will be held on Saturday, April 7th. With your help, we've managed to make each of the last ten years bigger and better than the last. Let's make it a clean sweep!

Here is the latest official snowfall forecast...

Here is the latest official snowfall forecast and low-/high-end probability scenarios for the upcoming coastal storm. This will be a long duration event starting in our southern areas late tonight and continuing into Wednesday as it will come in two waves. However, there is growing concern for more substantial snowfall and higher impacts to the region, including travel hazards, coastal flooding and more power outages, with the second wave on Wednesday. However, there is still high uncertainty with the track of the storm, especially for Wednesday (this is why we are emphasizing the different scenarios).

Good morning! We are continuing to monitor a coastal storm system that will likely affect the area beginning Monday night and potentially last right through Wednesday. While there is still a lot of uncertainty in the details of this system, indications are it may come in two separate waves, the first arriving Monday night into Tuesday morning and the second arriving Tuesday night into Wednesday. The track and evolution of the system will determine precipitation types and amounts as temperatures will be marginally cold. However the system does have the potential to bring heavy wet snow, strong winds, and even the possibility of some coastal flooding. Below are the highlights: *Snowfall: Highest threat for several inches of accumulating snowfall with the first wave currently looks to be near and north of the Mason-Dixon line -> southeast Pennsylvania extending into central and southern New Jersey south into northern parts of the Delmarva. *Winds: Strongest winds along Atlantic coastal sections of New Jersey and Delaware where NE winds may reach 20 to 30 mph with gusts over 40 mph. *Timing: First wave arrives Monday night lasting through Tuesday morning with mainly wet snow near and north of the Mason - Dixon line and mainly rain farther south over the southern Delmarva. There may be a brief break before a second wave potentially affects the area Tuesday night into Wednesday with more snow possible. *Impacts: Heavy wet snow could result in reduced visibility, slippery travel due to snow covered roads, and power outages if enough accumulates on tree limbs and wires. Biggest impacts currently look to be for the Tuesday morning commute and possibly again for Wednesday. *Confidence of occurrence: Moderate confidence storm will impact parts of the area with at least some snow Monday night into Tuesday but low confidence on amounts. Low confidence on second part of system potentially arriving for Tuesday night into Wednesday. The attached graphics show expected snowfall for the period Monday night through Wednesday. For further details regarding snowfall probabilities please visit: weather.gov/phi/winter Note: Our snowfall forecasts will extend through Wednesday with the next forecast package this afternoon. *For forecast details specific to your location, please visit weather.gov/phi and enter your city or zip code in the upper left.

Good morning! We want to give an update on the storm threat for the middle of next week (Monday night into Wednesday time frame). The very latest forecast guidance takes the storm a little farther south and east which lowers the probability of significant impacts over the area compared to previous thinking. That said, we are still a few days away so there is still a lot of uncertainty in the forecast. For this reason it is too soon to dismiss the threat of heavy rain, wet snow, and coastal flooding as the storm track could still shift northward again toward the region. Stay tuned! For the latest forecast details specific to your location, please visit weather.gov/phi and enter your city or zip code in the upper left.
