NWS: Snow to ‘adversely affect’ morning and evening commutes Tuesday

    Snowfall is expected to cause travel headaches Tuesday, especially in between the morning and evening rush hour periods, forecasters say. 

    In a briefing released by the National Weather Service office in Mount Holly, N.J., the agency notes that the storm will mainly impact the daytime hours. 

    “Precipitation will move in from the southwest around dawn Tuesday morning. Snow will increase during the mid-morning hours, continue through the day, then taper off during the late afternoon hours,” the briefing states. 

    The National Weather Service is calling for generally one to three inches in northern areas and three to five inches in southern areas, while Accuweather is calling for a three to six inch swath along the I-95 corridor and one to three inches elsewhere. 

    “The central and southern portions of the Mount Holly forecast, including the Philadelphia metro area, are ‘favored’ to receive more precipitation from this event compared to the northern portions,” the briefing advises.
