Forecast Says Light Snow Accumulation Possible

MOUNT HOLLY NJ – The “S” word has finally returned, albeit somewhat late, to the winter vocabulary in the greater Pottstown area, according to the National Weather Service regional office. Local residents can expect to see a mix of rain and “new snow accumulation of less than a half-inch” begin Tuesday (March 14, 2023) during very early morning hours, its forecast said.

The snow will be preceded Monday night (March 13) by rain through Tuesday at about 2 a.m., its prediction stated. By then, temperatures will have fallen sufficiently to produce an 80-percent chance of snowfall. While that’s not much, there will be slightly more later Tuesday before 2 p.m., and again after 5 p.m., with rain in-between.

Tuesday after 5 p.m. is when the weather service suggests accumulation of up to another inch of snow is possible, with temperatures dropping to as low as 29 degrees. The amount itself probably won’t cause traffic problems. However, the weather service warned northwest winds would be “blustery” through Tuesday night, blowing at around 25 miles per hour and gusting up to 40 mph at times.

Little or no snow accumulation is expected Tuesday after 8 p.m., it noted.
