Good morning, avid Facebook users. A strong cold front will move through the area today, making for a sharp decrease in temperatures and a sharp increase in winds late this afternoon and tonight. Meanwhile, some light snow will occur this morning in the southern Poconos with a wintry mix possible just to the south and east. Light rain showers are expected to move through much of the rest of the area late this morning and early this afternoon. However, as colder air filters in this afternoon, scattered snow showers (possibly even a few snow squalls) may occur, especially along and north of I-78. Bundle up tonight! Wind chills in the single digits and teens will prevail.

Winter is trying to make up for lost time! This week there are a few chances for snow across the area. The first one is late tonight into Tuesday morning, when light snow accumulations are possible across the Lehigh Valley, Southern Poconos, and far NW New Jersey (see the graphic below for the forecast snow amounts). For the rest of the area, there is a chance of rain tomorrow. Temperatures will be noticeably lower on Wednesday, with many locations not getting above freezing through the day. There will be 2 more chances for snow around the region. The first Wednesday night into Thursday, and the second on Friday. At this point, it looks like any snow accumulations with both periods will be light. For the detailed forecast for your location visit www.weather.gov/phi

Just a note, the snow will start to melt and compact in some locations so the most accurate totals would be taken here in the next couple of hours (by 10~ am). A huge thank you to those who already sent in totals.

Good Saturday evening everyone! Snow is beginning to taper off from west to east. However, temperatures in the 20s overnight will mean that any wet roads now could become icy later, especially bridges and untreated roads. If you must travel late tonight or early tomorrow morning, please use caution! Reduce speed and allow extra following distance with the vehicle in front of you.

Please feel free to post snowfall measurements here every couple of hours through the night if you are safely able to measure. Some good places to measure snow if you do not have a snowboard are on a piece of plywood, on top of a garbage can, or something that does not retain heat and would not melt the snow, like a picnic table or a deck.

Good Thursday morning NWS Mount Holly FB friends and visitors to NJ DE e PA e MD. A colder pattern is expected through at least Dec 17th and the first snowflakes of the season for many in our area, should be noticed this weekend. A bit of accumulative snow is still a possibility for the region along and southeast of the Interstate 95 corridor late Friday night and Saturday. Extent and amount of precipitation coverage is still uncertain. Please check for updates late today and tomorrow. Snow flurries and scattered squalls are possible Sunday morning from eastern PA to the Interstate 95 corridor with scattered small accumulative amounts that can make roads slippery, this time favored more for the hilly portions near I-78 and I-80. The coldest air of the season so far is expected here for the middle of next week. Daytime temperatures next Wednesday - the 20th should range from the 20s north to the 30s in the Philadelphia area and southward. Meanwhile, lets make today a good one. There should be more sunshine than yesterday and we expect it to be several degrees warmer.

    It will also feature unique design elements, such as low-slung furniture and a "customer service desk" (in lieu of circulation), that aim to transform the staff-to-patron relationship. In essence, these 21st Century facilities are expanding the bounds of what a public library can be - and should be - in this city's neighborhoods.

Good Wednesday morning NWS Mount Holly friends and visitors to NJ DE e PA e MD. A colder pattern will develop over our area during the next week and probably be accompanied by the the first snowflakes of the season for many in our area. Portions of se De and se NJ may see their first slight snow accumulation of the season Friday night. Still plenty of questions. So, confidence is below average on any amounts due to our being the northwest edge of the precipitation shield, and warm surface temps may cause snow to melt as it hits the ground. Our office may have more confidently stated accumulations, if any, either late today or tomorrow morning. In any case...its not looking substantial. Sunday morning appears to provide an opportunity for widespread flurries with bands of embedded snow showers or squalls , particularly in e PA and NJ. The coldest weather of this pattern appears to targeting the middle of next week...just outside our 7 day forecast period. In the meantime, enjoy today. It should turn out nice...though a bit chilly.

You may want to pack an umbrella if you go out tonight with rain showers moving over the area. These showers are associated with a cold front that will move through the region early Wednesday morning. This front marks the start of a pattern change that will feature colder than normal temperatures in the Mid Atlantic through at least the middle of the month. Yes, this colder pattern will come with an increase risk for wintry precipitation over the coming week(s) but it is still too early to provide much detail (when, where, how much) at this stage.
