AccuWeather Maps Say More Rain, Snow Possible
STATE COLLEGE PA – AccuWeather forecasters, in a report updated Tuesday (Jan. 18, 2022), said they were watching for more chances of snow across portions of southeastern Pennsylvania and elsewhere, just after a winter storm spent the weekend making a mess in several states. One of several maps they issued (at top) shows a possibility of 1-3 inches of snow between Wednesday and Thursday nights (Jan. 19-20).
It might not be an all-snow event. A fleeting stretch of higher temperatures will provide a chance for minor thaw in some storm-hit regions. Their second map (above, in pink) indicates Montgomery, Berks, Chester, and surrounding counties may endure only rain-to-snow-showers. After that, look out: arctic air will advance southeastward from Canada.
Snow may move in tandem with the cold, AccuWeather added. “Energy for this storm was moving onshore along the Pacific coast Monday,” it said. If conditions are right, it added, “there could be a … zone of 3 inches of snow (above, in blue) from North Carolina north to Rhode Island. In that scenario, something to shovel would arrive in southeastern Pennsylvania between Friday and Saturday (Jan. 21-22).
