Discussion

It was a "swing and a miss" yesterday for the storm and the forecast in terms of snow for SE PA, but the game is not quite over yet. There will actually be a second chance for this storm to produce some snow around here from late tonight into early Friday as it swings a narrow trough of low pressure southwestward along the Northeast coastline. In fact, precipitation is already rotating in a southwesterly direction along the coast and we could get some rain showers by the end of the afternoon. By late tonight, it should be just cold enough for snow showers that could last through the morning hours and small accumulations are possible of a coating (south and west) to an inch or two (north and east) with slippery spots on untreated surfaces right around morning rush hour time. Once that trough swings on through the area by late tomorrow, it’ll open the door for some big changes temperature-wise for the weekend and early part of next week. "Spring-fever" alert for Sunday and Monday as temperatures should soar through the 50's, but a cold front on Tuesday will usher in colder air by the middle of next week.
