Ridley Park's Online Digital Community
After days of anticipation The National Weather Service in Mount Holly has issued a winter weather advisory in effect for Ridley Park from 4 pm this afternoon to 6 am tomorrow.
Normally, as we get closer to the event, confidence increases. However, this is one of those anomalous events where the models have a decent handle on the track of the storm however there is increased uncertainty on how much snow will accumulate.
Its march, and with the higher sun angle, it will be tough for snow to accumulate during the day on treated surfaces unless it comes down heavy.
The precipitation should transition to snow in the evening and then its just a question of how much of Winter Storm Saturn is left.
Mixed precipitation will change to rain during the day Wednesday before changing back to all snow after sunset. Temperatures are above freezing and this will give us some slushy accumulations.
Travel will get more difficult as the evening commute proceeds. As the snow continues after sunset chances increase that wet snow will accumulate on limbs and wires and cause scattered power outages.
Ridley Park will see 3-8 inches of wet snow with winds to 45 MPH. Accumulation of slush during the day and wet, wind driven snow after sunset. Be prepared for possible power outages.
