Bolaris: The latest on Saturday snow

012414-snow
This National Weather Service map shows expected snowfall totals for the Philadelphia region for Saturday, Jan. 25.

A fast-moving Arctic front is moving through this afternoon and early evening with a band of snow.

We are not looking at a major snow event here, however it looks like enough to produce some slick roadways and make for some difficult travel for your Saturday afternoon and early evening plans.

Temperatures will remain in the 20s so the snow is applying a new coat of white across the region.

The real story here is that temperatures will never climb above the freezing mark for the rest of January. Can you say cabin fever?!

Timing

Snow accumulates from 1-6 p.m.

Snow ends by 7 p.m., a bit earlier across the Western suburbs, and a bit later across New Jersey.

Potential snow totals

Northern Bucks, Western Montgomery, Northwest Chester and Lehigh Valley - 2-4 inches

Poconos - 3-4 inches

Southern New Jersey and Delaware - 1-2 inches
