County is now under a 'winter weather advisory' and not a 'winter storm warning.'
The area of Montgomery County will now likely get less snow than originally predicted. The National Weather Service has reduced the area's warning down to a "Winter Weather Advisory." Last night, the NWS issued a Winter Storm Warning, declaring that four to eight inches of snow were expected for the county. However, today's forecast lessened the report to a now-expected one to two inches. "Accumulations of snow of one to at most four inches are expected," according to the latest advisory. The newest information from the NWS, located in Mount Holly, N.J., says that travel may still be possible now. "A winter weather advisory means that periods of snow, sleet or freezing rain will cause travel difficulties," said the advisory. "Be prepared …

The latest forecast for Huntingdon Valley greatly increased the amount of snow predicted in this weekend's winter storm.
A winter storm could bring anywhere from 3 to 6 inches of snow to the Huntingdon Valley area Friday and Saturday. The lastest forecast from the National Weather Service predicts 1 to 3 inches of snow Friday, then another 5 to 9 inches overnight Friday into Saturday. That is a radical change from Thursday's forecast, which predicted far less snow for Montgomery and Bucks counties. Most of Friday will be damp with rain, but expect that to change to snow by early evening. The National Weather Service issued a winter storm warning for southeast Pennsylvania, including the Huntingdon Valley area. The warning is in effect from 3 p.m. Friday until 6 a.m. Saturday. So, what's it going to be? Who knows. But we will continue to monitor the latest …

Will Tropical Storm Sandy hit the Mid-Atlantic or Northeast with heavy rain/snow, high winds and flooding?
- THE NEIGHBORHOOD FILES
Wednesday, October 24, 2012
Some computer models show that Tropical Storm Sandy could hit the Northeast - including eastern Pennsylvania - with fury early next week, which is the anniversary of last year's bizarre "Snowtober" storm. Sandy could bring rain, snow, high winds and possible storm-surge flooding to the Boston-to-Washington corridor in a "slingshot" scenario, in which the tropical storm (or hurricane) initially moves out to sea, but is captured by the jet stream and flung back to the Mid-Atlantic or Northeast, according to Climate Central's Andrew Freedman. Sandy could also simply move out to sea and that would be the end of it. The National Weather Service predicts no severe weather for the Bucks and Montgomery areas at this time, but states: "The remnants…
