Snow blanketed the Philadelphia area overnight and into the morning in the first jab of what the National Weather Service was calling a one-two wintry punch for the region. Accumulations range from about an inch to 2 ½ inches. More snow is expected as early as this evening in Southeastern Pennsylvania and South Jersey. Here’s the latest of what to know.
Temperatures above freezing during the day will help melt some of the snow that fell Monday morning. Still, a winter weather advisory is in effect until 6 p.m. Tuesday, with additional snow accumulations of one to three inches possible by Tuesday morning along with icing from mixed precipitation. Winds gusting as high as 35 mph also are expected near the coast Tuesday.
Snow and sleet could start falling around the time of the Monday evening rush hour, according to the National Weather Service’s latest briefing.
