The sunset over Barnegat Bay on Monday night looked like pure summer, with a deep-orange sun surrounded by rays protruding on to the water surface and “warming” our cameras. A short video of the beautiful site can be seen above. But while temperatures flirted with the 60-degree mark Monday, winter weather is on the way, according to forecasters.
While meteorologists are not predicting any significant snowfall event, temperatures are forecast to drop significantly and there will be a chance of some light snow, which may be mixed with rain.
The foul weather days will begin with scattered rain showers before 1 p.m. Tuesday. It will otherwise be cloudy, with a high near 41. Less than a tenth of an inch of precipitation is expected.
Overnight between Tuesday and Wednesday, temperatures will drop into the high 20s, with a chance of snow occurring after 1 a.m. There is about a 50 percent chance of a period of snow, according to the National Weather Service forecast, and new snow accumulation of less than a half inch are possible.
We keep climbing up the Top 5 list for most consecutive days without snow in Philly. It will be 324 days after today. However, we do have a shot at some snow Tues night/Wed morning. Could that streak be broken then? All we need is 0.1" snow. Stay tuned! #PAwx #NJwx #DEwx #MDwx pic.twitter.com/ei45vqo1bj
