May Be Icy Early Today; Snow Dust Wednesday
POTTSTOWN PA – Western Montgomery County residents are expected to wake Tuesday morning (Dec. 17, 2019) to a vista of freezing rain outside their windows, AccuWeather predicted, with periods of ice persisting between 4:15 and 6:30 a.m. That will be followed by occasional rain and drizzle during the remainder of the day. High temperatures Tuesday are unlikely to exceed 39 degrees, it added.
A constant overnight rain prompted the National Weather Service to declare a area small stream flood advisory to remain in effect Tuesday until 6:45 a.m. It also caused the Pottsgrove School District to cancel all after-school and evening activities Monday night (Dec. 16). Pottstown was among boroughs singled out in the notice that could experience flooding.
The service also imposed a winter weather advisory – Pottstown was included in it too – effective until 10 a.m.
Low temperatures Tuesday night are anticipated to bottom out at about 26 degrees and – although they’ll climb locally on Wednesday (Dec. 18) to a high of 36 – AccuWeather is forecasting a snow squall amid partly cloud skies that probably will dust the area with no more than one inch of snow.
