For snow-lovers, this winter has been about as satisfying as watching a favorite sports team go through the motions in a stunningly listless performance. (Oh, you say you've been to those games?)
So the potential for a couple of inches of snow almost qualifies as a rally.
The latest National Weather Service accumulation map now has the city and adjacent South Jersey solidly in the 2-inch zone, with the 4 zone as nearby as central Bucks County.
In the view of Henry Margusity at Accu-Weather, this may well portend a frisky February, as subtle signals of a pattern change take shape.
