Good Sunday evening to our NWS Mount Holly FB friends and all who reside or are visiting NJ, DE, E PA and E MD. A period of light precipitation is possible which should be just rain along and southeast of the I95 corridor. It could be a little snow or freezing rain in parts of eastern Pa and northwest NJ. Be alert for icy spots later tonight, especially near and north of I-78. The bigger news for shoppers during this holiday season... essentially dry weather with generally above normal temps for mid December, is our forecast through most of Friday. Really warm weather should occur this coming Saturday with temps probably exeeding 60 degrees. Eventually it cools down significantly early next week, but possibly not until just after Christmas.

Good Sunday Morning everyone! Another day, another chance to talk about winter weather. Across the Lehigh Valley, southern Poconos, and Northwest New Jersey, there is a slight chance (20%) for a wintry mix this evening (generally between 8 PM and midnight). At this point however, we are expecting mostly dry conditions. If you have travel plans tonight, please check the latest forecast for your location by visiting www.weather.gov/phi However, after tonight, it looks like things dry out for the next several days. By Tuesday we could see highs in the 50s and 60s across much of the region!

Good Morning Everyone! Weather-wise, there are a few things to note today (Saturday). 1. Many area roads are still icy/slippery after yesterday's snow. If you are out driving early this morning, please use caution, especially on bridges and untreated roads and reduce your speed. We are expecting most of our region to get above freezing during the day, so we should see melting later today, but as of 4 AM, temperatures are in the teens and 20s across the area. 2. For those of you along and north of the Interstate 80 corridor, light (less than one inch) snow accumulations are possible with snow showers this afternoon. See the graphic below for the forecast snow amounts.

Frankford’s “New Academic Opportunity”

Once you work in the education field, you never ever retire because teaching and learning becomes a part of who you are. It was a real pleasure as well as refreshing to meet Jessica Hasben, the CEO of Qor Charter School. Once you meet Jessica, too, you’ll find that she does indeed have that passion for children and their education that you, too, become a believer and hope that she does indeed succeed.

Have a Pretzel

You can get a really good pretzel, right here in Frankford.  It’s up at 5331 Oxford Avenue.  Pretzel Works has been there a long time baking pretzels and bagels for commercial customers.  Mike Naselsky, the owner, decided to open up a storefront window for people to buy retail and I stopped by to see what was happening.

Why Does a Restaurant Need Bullet Proof Glass

Don’t know and don’t care

    Why Does a Restaurant Need Bullet Proof Glass
    It isn't really about restaurants though. It's about Stop and Go stores that are operating with an LCB license for a restaurant. If they did not have that license, they would not be selling beer and liquor by the shot. So, if they are doing that in violation of the regulations, their license should be revoked.
