How will Winter Storm Skylar affect Philadelphia? Here's what you can expect
First, there was Winter Storm Riley. Then there was Winter Storm Quinn. And now, there’s Winter Storm Skylar. Yep, another nor’easter is headed for the East Coast — the third nor’easter in March 2018 alone. If you’re tired of winter weather, we don’t blame you. Just when our driveways are shoveled and our sidewalks are salted, Mother Nature hits us with more rain, wind, and snow. Here’s what you can expect from Winter Storm Skylar Philadelphia.
Winter Storms Riley and Quinn certainly left their mark on Philly. They brought heavy rain, wind, and snow — over a foot of powder to some parts of the suburbs. The winter storms also left some people without power for days. Fortunately, as of right now, it’s looking like Winter Storm Skylar won’t be as intense as its predecessors. But still, the winter weather is coming to Philadelphia. So here’s what you need to know.
Winter Storm Skylar was originally expected to hit the East Coast on Sunday and Monday, March 11th and 12th. But the weather is unpredictable, and now it’s looking like the storm will come through Philly on Monday and Tuesday. In the City of Brotherly Love, expect the rain to start on Monday afternoon. It will mix with snow in the evening and eventually become entirely snow overnight.
So, how much will it snow in Philadelphia?
The good news is the snow should stop sometime Tuesday morning. All in all, it’s only supposed to snow about one to three inches in Philly.
The real snow accumulation will be further north, in New England.
Stay safe out there, Philly!
