Updating This Evening's Light Snow

By this winter's standards, it's an "event"...if this were last winter you'd yawn, shrug your shoulders, perhaps boo the sight of more snow. Yes, a light snow is hitting the Delaware Valley and occasionally some spots get enough snow at a steady enough clip for it to be considered moderate in intensity. It's not a big deal -- most roads should remain wet for the evening commute, while yards and sidewalks continue to pick up that inch or so that we've been chatting about for a couple of days.

It's not quite a shovel snow (although I've heard a few folks have been picking up shovels for this one) or worthy of a trip to ACME for bread and milk (but I'm sure they'll appreciate the business) but in a winter where snow has been relatively rare, it may create cause for excitement for the snowstarved...until it melts tomorrow.

Snow will taper down over the next few hours as this system pulls through the region...wouldn't surprise us if it's done by 8 or 9 PM.  Clouds will hang through the night, with some of those untreated surfaces locally slickening up as temperatures drop below freezing overnight.
