E PA/NJ/DE Winter 2022-2023 OBS Thread

Increasing clouds for today with rain arriving from south to north across Chester County by evening. There could be a brief mix with some snow or sleet at the start of the precipitation but any small accumulation should be well north of the county. Some models hint at a change back to snow tomorrow morning with some minor accumulations but I am skeptical. Otherwise a 1 day break on Tuesday before snow arrives on Wednesday morning. The NWS sees most of Chester County at least starting as snow on Wednesday with some accumulations possible before any change to rain later on Wednesday. Quieter weather to finish out the week with slightly above normal temps continuing.
The record high for today is 72 degrees way back in 1906. The record low was 14 below zero in 1984. Daily precipitation record and snow record are from 1987 when 12.8" of snow fell with a water equivalent of 1.47"

Only in Philadelphia would it be heavy rain in the 30’s at night at the end of January.


Could it get any more painful?




this video clip is painful for me watching the models runs lately and then finally waiting for a good snowstorm. LOL. This movie is demonstrates the epitome  of how it rains primarily in Philly but snows in the NW burbs in the opening scene

We have picked up 0.60" of rain so far since last evening with 0.14" since midnight. We have started to see some snow mixing in with the rain here in East Nantmeal this morning. The rain should change to wet snow and taper off by around noontime today. Any minor accumulations would likely be in the more elevated spots in Western Chesco. Tomorrow looks to be a brief break in precipitation with partly sunny skies. It looks like snow will arrive Wednesday morning with possible accumulations of 2" to 4" before a change to rain late in the day. Clearing and colder by Friday with moderating temps again by next weekend.
The record high for today is 69 degrees from 1906. Record low is 5 below zero in 1936. The daily precipitation and snow record is from the Blizzard in 2016. We picked up an additional 22" of snow today following the 4" that fell on the 22nd bringing our snow total to 26.0". That ties for the 8th largest snowstorm in Chester County history along with January 29, 1922.
