    Snowstorm Hits Philadelphia Tuesday

    A new storm has moved up from the Southwestern states, bringing another dose of accumulating snow to Philadelphia Tuesday.

    Enough snow will fall to make roads and runways slippery in spots around the city to have to shovel and plow in the suburbs during the morning and midday hours.

    The snow will last an average of six to eight hours and will reach from Washington, D.C., Baltimore and Wilmington, Del., to New York City, Hartford, Conn., Providence, R.I., and Boston.

    The storm is forecast to bring an average of 3 inches locally, but a few locations along the I-95 corridor can receive up to around 6 inches with most of the snow on non-paved surfaces.

    The ultra fast movement of the storm will allow the snow to end and travel conditions to improve during the afternoon hours.

    Arctic air will follow the storm during the middle and latter part of the week. Many locations from the Ohio Valley to the Northeast will have their lowest temperatures of the season so far.

    Locally, nighttime temperatures will dip into the teens around the city, but to the single digits in the northern and western suburbs Thursday night.

    Yet another storm with snow could affect the area during part of the coming weekend.
