Philly's Biggest Snow Of The Season So Far

A gigantic 2.7" of snow fell in Philadelphia, the largest total of the winter season so far in a single event in Philadelphia. More snow fell to the north/west of the city in last Monday's event and the November 21st event saw some heavier amounts in a couple of places as well. Regardless, for those geese that live at the Airport, today's event was their biggest snow event of the winter to date.

Much of the immediate region seemed to fall within the 1-3" or 2-4" window depending on location, with more to the north and less to the south. The Lehigh Valley and Berks picked up a generic 3-5" swath of snow, with the Poconos picking up generally 4-6".

Enjoy a two day radar loop of both waves of the event, from yesterday morning's minor event to today's main course.
