Snow for a.m. commute?

Snow for a.m. commute?

It won’t stick to the roads or stick around, but a quick burst of snow could cause a few problems during the morning commute.

The National Weather Service now says that it’s at least possible that snow coats the lawns and car roofs. Here is the snowfall “accumulation” map.

This will be a quick hitter, and since paved surfaces are still poor men’s hot plates, the snow is unlikely to slicken the roads.

You probably won't hear any school-closing numbers, but it's about to feel a whole lot like December.

A potent cold front is due to pass through the region overnight, and the winds will shift abruptly and come howling out of the north.

If the forecast holds, Philadelphia will have its first official below-freezing reading Wednesday morning, with temperature falling back to the same neighborhood the next two mornings.
