Slick Start, Melting Later

Our morning is starting off with a number of slick spots around the northern and western suburbs in the wake of yesterday's inch plus snow event, mainly on untreated surfaces and on walks where snow took the longest to stick last evening.  Snowfall totals were rather modest -- the Airport picked up 0.3" last night, with much of South Jersey in that "coating" department.  The highest total around the area was in hilly East Nantmeal with 2" of snow.   It won't last on the ground very long today as skies will generally be mainly sunny through the daylight hours today.

Temperatures will bounce into the mid 40's in many locations this afternoon -- we're pegging the Airport for 47 -- and with a decent northwest breeze at 10-16 miles per hour it will feel cooler than those mid 40's later on today.   All in all, a decent day (one of two) forthcoming before we trend colder this weekend.
