Daily Snow Record Broken At Philly Int'l; Staying Below Average

See also

4.7" officially fell at Philly International....er, I mean, National Park(Gloucester County, NJ). This broke the old record of 3.5" set back in 1892(probably measured somewhere NOT at the airport anyway...so why even have a record snowfall date that far back?).

There was 0.23" of moisture so that means we had over a 15:1 snow ratio as the temperature was in the 20s during the event and we only reached 31 just before 4pm.

Well, at least Spring officially begins at 12:57 EDT on Thursday, but until then we stay below average with highs failing to reach the average of 53. Overnight will have a partly cloudy sky with lows in the lower 20s so anything that was wet during the day shall freeze.

Tuesday will be sunny, but unseasonably cold with highs in the lower 40s thanks to a north-northeast wind. We'll get closer to average come Wednesday with highs around 50, but we'll cloud up in the afternoon ahead of a cold front that will provide rain overnight into Thursday.

Shockingly behind the front on Thursday highs will be in the middle 50s with plenty of sunshine and then flirting with 60 come Friday despite a short wave pushing southward with clouds in the afternoon(and maybe a spot shower).
