Warming trend expected after overnight snowfall
Finally, there’s some good weather news: The snow may be slowing down, and warmer temperatures are on the way.
The Philadelphia area can expect another sprinkling of snow overnight, but a warming trend is expected in coming days that may lead to some relief from widespread ice and snow, according to the National Weather Service.
Between 1 and 2 inches of snow is expected overnight Tuesday, according to James Bunker, observing program leader at the National Weather Service.
The snow could change to light rain over the course of the day, Bunker said.
But later this week, temperatures are predicted to rise to the low to mid-50s, he said.
“We are looking for a gradual warming trend later in the week,” Bunker said.
This winter ranks as the third snowiest in Philadelphia history.
According to the PECO power outage map, about 300 customers within Philadelphia and the five-county area are listed as still being without power, 10 days after the Feb. 5 ice storm that downed power lines across the state.
