Good Wednesday afternoon NWS Mount Holly FB friends and visitors to NJ, DE, e PA, and E MD. Posted below is our 1PM preliminary analysis of snowfall for the Jan 16-17, 2018 event, most of which fell between midnight and 9 AM today-January 17. We still accept your snowfall reports in any comments to this post through this Wednesday evening. We are looking for more data on the Delmarva and southwest NJ. The color scales match the NWS Standard Colors, also applied to our snow amount forecasts. We hope you were able to enjoy this refreshing winter coat, safely.

Snow is ending from west to east across the region as head toward noontime. The areas circled on the graphic may still see light snow/ flurries for a few more hours. Slick spots will still be present in spots. Allow caution if traveling. #njwx #dewx #pawx #mdwx

For people who takes snow measurements the proper way of doing it is on a hard surface or a designated snowboard. If you measure on the grass you’re always going to have some air pockets underneath. As of this writing (10:30am) my snow total is 6.5 inches. But I also took a measurement on the lawn and you can see the disparity.❄️❄️❄️❄️❄️❄️❄️❄️

Good Tuesday evening NWS Mount Holly FB followers and visitors to NJ DE e Pa and E MD. Our 930 PM forecast wont make any changes to the advisory warning configuration but amounts are trimmed slightly, maybe by an inch or so. The bulk of the snow near and north of I-78 will occur between 11 PM and 7 AM, while to the south of I-78, generally between 3 AM and 9 AM. Just about everyone in E PA and much of northern and western NJ should wake up to snow cover. Plan on extra time to reach your destination overnight and Wednesday morning. Please leave your snow total reports with this post. Attached is the new snow forecast prepared at 930 PM this Tuesday eve.

An ice jam on the Delaware River at Trenton has caused the river level to rise significantly in that vicinity. Minor flooding is expected along the Delaware River in the Trenton/Yardley area. A Flood Warning is in effect.
Another cold night on tap tonight with wind chills as low as 10 below in the Poconos, otherwise in the single digits. Some light snow and/or flurries with no snow accumulations are possible Monday morning across the Delmarva, southeast PA, and southern NJ. Stay warm! Next chances for snow to occur are Tuesday and Tuesday night, and there still is the potential for snow late Wednesday. After that, there looks to be a warmup into next weekend with temperatures gradually rising to above normal levels!
Wow! What a difference 24 hrs makes! From above normal temperatures to below normal temperatures in a very short period of time. Temperatures have been dropping sharply this morning and it is now considerably colder than it was just 24 hrs ago. Check out just how much temperatures have dropped across the region. This image shows the 24 change in temperatures in the first column with the reported 9 AM temperature in the second column.
Temperatures continue to plummet. Runoff and standing water from the recent rain will freeze on roads, walkways and parking lots. Be prepared for slippery conditions over the weekend. Be careful.
Just wondering if you've received any reports on how much rain fell in Southern Sussex County today? I'm grateful that the temps were so warm. All this could have been snow. I believe the general ratio rain to snow is 1 inch rain 1 foot snow.
Periods of rain will continue to move through our region throughout the overnight. Toward sunrise the Southern Poconos and perhaps the Lehigh Valley will see a change to freezing rain. Icy spots forming tomorrow as temperatures fall. Storm reports are welcome!
An area of moderate to heavy rain is moving through the I-95 corridor this morning. Please use caution if traveling as the visibility may drop quickly in heavy rain. #njwx #mdwx #dewx #pawx
Hi everyone! A few things to note with the weather through the weekend: 1. Today will be very warm (we already have a few sites in the 60s at 5 AM!) with periods of rain through the day. There is a potential for heavy rain leading to localized flooding in poor drainage areas. 2. Don't let the warm weather today fool you! We're still in January and expecting a big cool down late tonight into Saturday. Any standing water from the rain today could freeze leading to icy driving conditions tomorrow. 3. A wintry mix of sleet and snow is expected across the Lehigh Valley, NW NJ, and the southern Poconos very late tonight into Saturday morning. See the attached graphic for forecast ice amounts.

Good morning! A milder start to the day (see 5 AM temperatures) will give way to temperatures topping 50 degrees in many places this afternoon. Rain arrives mainly tonight and continues on and off Friday with even warmer air. It then turns much colder Saturday through early next week.
Good Wednesday evening NWS Mount Holly FB friends and visitors to NJ DE e Pa and e MD. Periods of rain will occur at times this Friday with a good chance of record warmth in some of our area. It just so happens that widespread record warmth occurred a year ago here, On Jan 12, 2017! It wont last long!! Arctic cold drives southward into our area Saturday and should be accompanied by a period of ice, sleet or snow in ne PA and far nw NJ Saturday morning. A more widespread, and probably light snow event is possible here, next Tuesday or Wednesday.
Good morning! A cold start to the day (see the 5 AM observations graphic for a sample), therefore watch for some icy spots early this morning. This afternoon will feature milder temperatures with many areas getting into the 40s. Even warmer air arrives for the second half of the week, although that will also be accompanied by some rain.
After our almost 2 week period of temperatures near or below freezing, a lot of ice has developed on area water ways. This loop, using GOES-16 data (the latest geostationary satellite), shows ice on the Delaware Bay. This loop roughly covers Tuesday morning through Tuesday afternoon (this particular loop uses a certain kind of satellite imagery that is only available during daylight hours). You can see the ice moving with the tides through the day. There are also a few passing high clouds that are visible on this loop.
For the first time this year all locations at or above freezing at 2 pm! #njwx #dewx #pawx #mdwx
A milder afternoon is expected, which will help to start melting the snow/ice. Be careful early this morning though as untreated surfaces will be icy.
Though the freezing rain has moved out of the area, we will continue to see hazardous conditions for walking and driving overnight through the Tuesday morning commute. Temperatures will be below freezing overnight so any ice accumulation on Monday will not have a chance to melt. In addition, water in areas that are above freezing Monday evening, may refreeze overnight. If you are going out overnight or on Tuesday morning, be prepared for slippery conditions. Use extra care during the Tuesday morning commute.
A wintry mix is moving east into the region. Light freezing rain leading to slick spots is the main concern this afternoon and evening. Far northern portions of the region may still see just light snow. Pictured is the noon radar and temperatures. #njwx #dewx #pawx #mdwx

Good morning! A period of freezing rain, sleet and/or snow arrives this afternoon and continues into this evening. Amounts are expected to be light, however the timing will impact the afternoon/evening commute.
Snow totals for the Jan 4th winter storm. A detailed listing can be found at http://bit.ly/2CNQprn
A light wintry mix of snow, sleet and freezing rain is likely across a portion of the area tomorrow (Monday, January 8th) afternoon and evening. Accumulating snow/sleet is most likely N/W of Philadelphia. SE PA, C & S NJ, NE MD and N DE have the greatest risk to see light icing with freezing rain (see the latest forecast graphics below). Even though amounts are expected to be light, there is a potential for significant travel impacts and considerable delays if freezing rain coincides with the Monday evening rush. We’ll provide updates to tomorrow's forecast later today.
The forecast low temperature for Philadelphia is +2 degrees for early Sunday morning. However, it remains possible that the temperature could briefly fall below zero if the wind goes totally calm around daybreak. If the temperature at Philadelphia falls below zero, it would be the first time in the 21st Century. The last sub-zero reading at Philadelphia was -5 degrees on January 19, 1994. There was a total of only 23 days during the entire 20th Century when the temperature at Philadelphia fell below zero.
Updated Sun Jan 7: The low temperature reached 4 degrees this morning at Philadelphia. Although the temperature did not fall below zero, we tied the daily record low set in 2014, when it also reached 4 degrees. Post from Sat Jan 6: The forecast low temperature for Philadelphia is +2 degrees for early Sunday morning. However, it remains possible that the temperature could briefly fall below zero if the wind goes totally calm around daybreak. If the temperature at Philadelphia falls below zero, it would be the first time in the 21st Century. The last sub-zero reading at Philadelphia was -5 degrees on January 19, 1994.

Dangerous cold continues through Sunday morning with wind chill values as cold as 25 below zero in the Poconos where a Wind Chill Warning is in effect to 15 below zero elsewhere where a Wind Chill Advisory is in effect. http://bit.ly/2f7vpA7

Good Friday morning NWS Mount Holly FB followers and visitors to NJ DE e PA e MD. Record cold is on the way, especially for Saturday and Saturday night. You should be prepared to safely heat your home and have a stash of warm clothes in your car, as well as a charged cell phone, in case you get stuck in a remote area. By Sunday night, the persistence of subfreezing temperatures that began just after Christmas, will be the longest such stretch generally dating back to February 1979 (exception Reading, PA -January 2000). This cold spell is also ranked top 8 longest stretch in the historical database for Philly-Wilmington, Trenton, Allentown, Reading and Atlantic City. Next wintry weather event potential dates are Monday January 8th and then late next week between the 11th-13th. Attached are two graphics...one showing the coldest wind chill expected Saturday morning and the other is a graphic expressing confidence of more than 1/4 inch of frozen water equivalent precipitation (more than 2 inches of snow or an icing problem). This latter graphic is a low chance for such occurrence of that much snow. However, small amounts of snow and/or ice appear likely, at least in PA and northern NJ.
Hi Everyone, here is the final briefing package on this event. Snow should be moving out in the next few hours, so our attention turns to the dangerously cold conditions that we are expecting through the weekend. https://www.weather.gov/media/phi/current_briefing.pdf If you have any additional snow reports, we would appreciate you sharing them on the previous post. Thank you so much!
