Snow: 6+ inches near Shore

Philadelphia cut a coating; areas near Shore got a quilt.

Snow: 6+ inches near Shore


That drive-by clipper picked up some last-minute juice from the ocean and gave towns in Cape May county their biggest snow hit of the season.

The National Weather Service spotter in Seaville weighed in with 7.5 inches; other towns in the neighborhood, and Dover, Del, ended up in the 6-inch rain

Dennisville, Seaville, and Woodbine spotters all weighed in with 6 inches, with 5.9 at Dover. Here's the latest accumulation list.

To the west, about the only snow-removal equipment needed was a hair-dryer. New London reported 0.2, as did Spring Mount, Montgomery County.

Officially, the 0.1 at Philadelphia International Airport/National Park upped the 2012-13 total to 4.3 inches, or well under what some Cape May County points measured this morning.

The forecast is calling for a chance of light snow Saturday night and Sunday, with another shot at midweek.
