1 to 4 Inches of Snow Expected Saturday

The National Weather Service reports snow is coming Dec. 29 with up to 4 inches of accumulation in northern Bucks and Montgomery counties.

So far this week, we had a white Christmas and a post-Christmas snow and ice storm, and this weekend, 1 to 4 inches is expected across much of our area.

The National Weather Service says hazardous travel likely will develop for much of eastern Pennsylvania Saturday morning, as snow begins falling around daybreak or shortly thereafter.

The amount of snow predicted climbs the farther north one looks. 

For Bensalem and most of Lower Bucks, the weather service as of midnight was predicting 1 to 3 inches of snow. That range increased to 2 to 4 inches in Doylestown and north through Quakertown.

Horsham was predicted to get 2 to 4 inches, as well, while the Lower Moreland area was expected to get about 1 to 3 inches.

Daytime temperatures on Saturday will hover in the low to mid 30s. Sunday will be mostly sunny with a high of 34. Here's the forecast:

  • Saturday Snow. High near 32. Calm wind becoming north 5 to 7 mph in the afternoon. Chance of precipitation is 100%. New snow accumulation of 1 to 4 inches possible, depending on location.
  • Saturday Night A chance of snow, mainly before 10pm. Mostly cloudy, with a low around 25. Northwest wind 8 to 11 mph. Chance of precipitation is 40%. New snow accumulation of less than a half inch possible.
  • Sunday Mostly cloudy, then gradually becoming sunny, with a high near 34. Northwest wind 14 to 18 mph, with gusts as high as 28 mph.
  • Sunday Night Mostly clear, with a low around 20. West wind 5 to 8 mph.

What da you say we pay Weather people according to their success at predicting. Shouldn't they be held as responsible as we want to hold teachers responsible?

I thought their prediction wasn't bad this time around -- got around 3 or so inches here in the Wrightstown area.
