Saturday's snow exceeds expectations

Snow totals from Saturday's storm

The forecast for Saturday was for 2 to 4 inches of snow across most of the area. The reality of what actually feel was almost double that for many of us. Saturday's storm "over-performed" across much of eastern Pennsylvania into northwestern New Jersey, while areas towards the coast that were supposed to see the higher totals only saw a few inches.

4 to 8 inches of snow fell across much of the Lehigh Valley and Berks County, and similar amounts of up to 6 inches were seen into the southern Poconos as well as northwestern New Jersey.

Mertztown in Berks County was one of the higher reported totals at 8 inches. In Lehigh County, Neffs saw 7.5 inches of snow. The Allentown total of 4.9 inches is at the Lehigh Valley International Airport and is lower than many of the other totals around the Allentown area, which measured closer to 6 or 7 inches of snow.

In Northampton County, a trained weather spotter measured 7.2 inches of snow in Bushkill Center. Danielsville measured 6.0 inches of snow.

4.1 inches of snow fell at the Philadelphia International Airport, and much of the Delaware Valley saw between 3 and 6 inches of snow.

Another round of some light snow is possible later Monday night, although a repeat of Saturday's over-performing snow is not expected.
