Tomorrow is the first day of March, also known as the first day of Meteorological Spring, but it will not be feeling like it. Many of us will see a burst of light to moderate snow for a several hour period during the early morning hours tomorrow morning. We do not believe the snow will accumulate enough to cancel schools, however, it will be enough to cause delays and travel headaches during the morning commute.
The snow will move in over our southwest counties first, just like many of our storms systems this year. The snow will not begin to push into our southwest counties until around Midnight, or shortly after. A lot of us will not even see the snow fall due to the timing. Below is a look at 1:00 AM Friday morning:
This will be a quick moving system. Those of us that do see snow, will likely only see a 3 to 6 hour period of snow. Unlike our last storm, we do not expect the snow to fall heavily. Instead, it will fall light and steady which will still be enough to accumulate on all surfaces. As we take our future radar out to 4:00 AM, snow has spread throughout much of Pennsylvania:
We do expect the snow to weaken a bit as it pushes into Eastern Pennsylvania. So taking our future radar out to 7:00 AM, you can see more wholes in the radar with lighter blues:
Most of the snow will be out of the picture by 8:00 AM Friday morning, with leftover flurries possible throughout the morning hours.
SNOWFALL FORECAST FOR FRIDAY MORNING:
Area A: 2 to 4 inches of snow is expected. Snow covered roads are likely during the early Friday AM commute. Use extra caution while driving to school/work Friday morning and give yourself plenty of time to arrive at your destination.
Area B: 1 to 2 inches of snow is expected. Back roads will likely be snow covered. Use extra caution while driving to school/work Friday morning and give yourself plenty of time to arrive at your destination.
Area C: A coating to 1 inch of snow is expected. Slick road conditions are possible early Friday morning. Use extra caution while driving to school/work Friday morning and give yourself plenty of time to arrive at your destination.
