After a week of unseasonably warmer weather, the Philadelphia region can expect colder temperatures and unfavorable weather conditions. Heavy rainfall will begin Monday night transitioning into snow overnight for some parts of the region.
Rain Turns To Snow Overnight
Goodbye 50-60 degree weather! Philadelphia received a sprinkle of Spring last week with high temps on Friday and Saturday in the upper 50s in Philadelphia and surrounding communities.
Sunday conditions started feeling a little chillier for Super Bowl Sunday, although still well above freezing.
That’s all about to change.
Indeed, rain moves into the Philadelphia region bringing along with it much colder temperatures.
Important to note, the high on Monday in Philadelphia and surrounding areas is expected to be around 50 degrees. However, temperatures will begin to dip into the 40s and 30s as night falls, but not cold enough to bring anything more than rain to start things off.
Eventually, the rain will transition into snow overnight for much of the Philadelphia region. In fact, some neighborhoods could get several inches of snow before the wintry weather comes to an end.
How Many Inches Are Expected To Fall?
According to NBC10, a foot of snow could fall in the Pocono Mountains. The Lehigh Valley can expect half a foot of snow or more while next to nothing sticks in parts of South Jersey.
The snow continues after daybreak before rolling out by midday. In fact, you could even see some sunshine in the afternoon. However, blustery conditions continue through the afternoon.
Philadelphia and the I-95 corridor has the potential to see 1 to up to 3 inches of snow although it isn’s expected to stick. Slushy roads and messy driving conditions can have an impact on your Tuesday morning commute.
