Light Snow for Philly on Tuesday

Last Updated

A clipper-type system will move through Tuesday morning, bringing light snow to our area during the morning, ending early afternoon. The models often over-predict the amount of precipitation with theses systems (and very occasionally under-predict coastal development).

Both the GFS and NAM are predicting about 0.12 inches of water, falling as snow. With low temperatures, the ratio may be as high as 1:20, so 1-2 inches appears to be the case here. Again, clippers are notoriously underperforming from a snow point of view, so we will have to see if we really get that much.
