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.

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 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.

A carved wood staircase leads upstairs, where exposed brick lines the hallway. The bedrooms feature hardwood floors and more chandeliers. The home, which was built in 1940, sits only a few blocks from Broad Street at 1238 Ritner Street.
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. For local forecast details specific to your location, please visit weather.gov/phi and enter your city or zip code in the upper left.
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. Use extra caution on the roads as there may be sudden reductions in visibilities approaching the I-80 corridor. For local forecast details, please visit weather.gov/phi and enter your city or zip code in the upper left.
Patchy fog across Eastern PA and Northern NJ will gradually diminish this afternoon under mostly cloudy skies along with a chance of showers. Across Delmarva and Southern NJ, a chance of showers this morning, followed by sun breaking through the clouds this afternoon. High temperatures will be 5-10 degrees above normal across the region. weather.gov/phi
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.
Well, all good things must come to an end. Lead Forecaster Walter Drag retires at the end of this month after 37+ years of service. While we may be in a hurry to show him the door, we thank him for his service and wealth of knowledge and also threw him a retirement luncheon. We wish Walt all the best in his retirement years!
Passing this along for our friends on the other side of 17th street: Hi, I am organizing a community clean-up on Saturday, April 7 from 9 am until 2 pm. We will be covering the areas from Broad to 16th and Ritner to Porter. Meet at Jeanne's Corner Grocery and Deli, 1440 W Shunk St. RSVP ErikaLReinhard@gmail.com
Good Morning. If you're in the Poconos or far northern NJ watch out for ice early this morning. If you're getting some ice accumulation, please let us know. Thanks! #pawx #njwx
Good Tuesday evening! Some light freezing rain in the higher elevations (above 1000 feet) of the southern Poconos into Sussex County, New Jersey tonight and early Wednesday (just some rain elsewhere at times), then some warmer air begins to arrive from the south Wednesday.
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.
Light freezing rain is expected in the elevated terrain of the Pocono Region tonight. There is the potential for spotty light freezing rain in the highest elevations of far northern New Jersey, as well. #pawx #njwx
Good Monday evening! High temperatures on Tuesday (3/27) will once again be cooler than it should be for this time of the year. Some rain should arrive toward evening for parts of eastern PA, with even some light freezing rain for the higher terrain of the Poconos Tuesday night.

A week and a half ago, we compared the average high, average low, and total snowfall in all of February with the first 2 weeks of March. Let's see how things have changed since then, now that March is almost done!
Snow showers, mod-hvy at times, continue to move through the region this morning, causing slippery road conditions. Please use caution if out this am. Most locations are only expected to see a dusting but some localized amts of around an inch are possible. #pawx #njwx #mdwx #dewx
A total of 13.2 inches of snow fell at Allentown, PA on Wednesday. The chart shows how quickly the snow melted over the last few days. #pawx
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.
Temperatures mainly in the 40s along with the high sun angle will work to melt much of the remaining snow in our region today. The sun angle is the same as that of mid September, so the ground will warm quite a bit. #pawx #njwx #dewx #mdwx
Good evening! The weather will be pretty quiet this weekend with more sunshine on the way for Saturday and highs generally in the 40s. Enjoy! For the latest forecast information specific to you location, please visit weather.gov/phi and enter your city or zip code in the upper left.

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.
