PHILADELPHIA (CBS) —overnight throughout the greater Philadelphia area.
However, when it comes to this spell of snow, our NEXT Weather team said the duration won’t be too long. But when it snows for those few hours on Tuesday, the weather is sure to be disruptive in parts of Pennsylvania.
The further we go into Monday evening, the heavier the rain will become. Once midnight passes, this rain will change to snow, starting in the northwest and moving down to the southeast.
A winter storm warning goes into effect at midnight Tuesday until 3 p.m. for much of northeastern Pennsylvania and extends into central Bucks County. In Lower Bucks and Montgomery counties, a winter weather advisory will remain in effect until 3 p.m. Tuesday.
Around 3 a.m., our NEXT Weather radar predicts snow will already be falling in the Poconos and Lehigh Valley, and will begin to transition into upper Montgomery and upper Bucks counties.
By 7 a.m., our forecasters expect snow along the I-95 corridor. High snowfall rates are expected, but surface and ground temperatures will remain above freezing. This means it will take some time for the snow to start accumulating and piling up. Snow will accumulate, then the system will stop operating around noon.
School closures in Pennsylvania, New Jersey and Delaware
While the Philadelphia area expects up to 2 inches of snow, 2 to 4 inches in Lancaster, 4 to 8 inches in the Lehigh Valley and 8 to 12 inches expected in the Poconos, school districts following in our area have already announced that they will be closed or will open late Tuesday.
Our list of school closures and delays in the Delaware Valley is always updated. You can find the full list of schools here.
