A fast-moving storm system will bring snow to parts of the Delaware Valley Sunday night – CBS Philly


PHILADELPHIA (CBS) – A fast-moving clipper-type storm system will sweep through the Philadelphia area on Sunday evening, making snow showers possible. This is particularly true for the north and west of the city.

Totals will be limited due to a very dry air mass.

Early Sunday evening, a trace of half an inch of snow is possible in parts of Philadelphia, suburban Pennsylvania and the Lehigh Valley.

From early to mid evening, pockets of flurries and snow showers will move across southern Jersey and Delaware with little to no accumulation.

The best chance for accumulation is in the Poconos where 1-2 inches of snow is possible with flurries beginning Sunday afternoon.

Even a light dusting of snow on roads and sidewalks can create slippery conditions with patchy black ice overnight.

This will become a trend over the next few days; the region will receive a mix of sun and cloud for Monday before another fast mower. This system will pass north Monday evening with clouds and a chance of scattered flurries.

A third system could bring flurries and rain showers on Tuesday, with highs returning to seasonal levels in the 40s.
