The first taste of the winter: fall snow, blind and heavy rain


What do you know?

  • Snow, snow and heavy rain are expected on Thursday. Roads can be slippery throughout the day.

  • The first notices are issued until midnight for Philly, North Delaware and point to the north and west.

  • Heavy rain then becomes a concern for the entire region by midnight. Local flooding is possible.

The storm brought a mixture of snow, snow and rain in most of our region's fourth, a bunch of roads across the area and the early closure of many schools.

And it's not over yet. The first warning for snow, ice and heavy rain will last until midnight for the whole area, except Central and Southern Delaware and South Jersey.

The largest accumulations of snow before crossing the rain are expected in the Lehigh Valley and the western suburbs of Philadelphia, while the Lehigh Vallei and Berks Counties areas hit anywhere between 5 and 9 inches.

The suburbs of Pennsylvania will end up with slightly less snow, and are expected anywhere between 3 and 6 inches.

In corridor I-95, total snowfall can be between 1 and 3 inches.

Cold surfaces, such as grass, bridges, pavements and cars, can accumulate wet snow, snow and ice. Heavy rain, meanwhile, falls in southern Delaware, in South Yorkshire and on the coast of Jersey.

Any accumulation in the Philadelphia area will not last long, as the strong rain will be washed.

Attacks on electricity are also an issue while the ice continues to accumulate. Some of the biggest areas of concern are Bensalem, Abington and Ecton.

The combination of variable time has led to dangerous conditions and low visibility for drivers. SEPTA also experienced delays in its regional rail and bus service.

Philadelphia International Airport also reported delays and cancellations and recommended passengers checking their flight status.

At least ten flights have been canceled or delayed, and are expected to be kept up to 6 hours, said PIA spokeswoman Diana Gerace, adding that other flights could be delayed or canceled during the day.

Late on Thursday afternoon and evening, strong rain will extend throughout the area. In some settlements, one or two inches of rain may fall, and a local flood is possible, as gutters remain.

Mental showers continue in the early Friday morning, but will end before sunrise. Weekend, meanwhile, will be dry, but cool with temperatures in the 40s and 50s.

If you have not had the opportunity to check it out, the Glenn "Hurricane" Schwarz split his annual Long winter weather forecast and it seems that this storm will be the first of many of this winter.
