National Weather Service forecasts nasty Monday morning commute, icing and flooding mid-week

The National Weather Service Philadelphia/Mt. Holly predicts a stormy weather pattern this coming week as cold air moves back into the region. The good news: temperatures don’t look like they’re going back to the single digits. Here’s an excerpt from an NOAA-NWS executive summary prepared Friday:

“A quick moving storm is expected to bring one to four inches of snow on Monday, Feb. 3. The timing will be early in the day and will affect the Monday morning commute.

“A stronger storm system will affect the region midweek and bring a wide variety of winter weather (rain, icing due to freezing rain, snow). This has the potential to be a significant icing event and more details will be available as we get closer to the storm.

“Rainfall may be significant enough that, when combined with snow melt, we will see some river flooding. There may also be ice jam flooding due to the rainfall & ice clogged rivers. A lot of potential impacts and we’ll know more as we get closer.”
