Why Not Have Another Chance Of Snow Showers

Wednesday night presents another chance for snow showers around the region as Januar...I mean March continues along unabated with reinforced shots of chill. This disturbance will be along an area of low pressure that develops on the cold front that passes through the region later on today. The disturbance will pass to our east, bringing a slightly greater chance of snow showers to New England as it works up the coast, but it will nonetheless throw moisture back towards the coast as it pushes northeast.

We're again not talking much in the way of snow shower activity -- coating to perhaps inch type snows can't be ruled out in areas where snow showers do indeed fire up. Modeling varies on placement since these are more showery in nature and less a "swath" of snow as it moves northeast.  GFS and Euro like South Jersey, NAM likes Central Jersey for where snow showers seem to develop.  Some of the higher resolution models want to fire up snow showers over Southeast Pennsylvania.  Most of this falls at night, likely after Midnight on Wednesday night into Thursday morning, and should be out of here shortly before sunrise or during the early stages of the morning commute, so impacts should be minimal overall except for those who are up early.

However, it's just a reminder that winter is not over and won't be for a little while longer.
