The declaration means people should not park on snow removal routes.
Doylestown Borough is asking people not to park on certain posted streets Friday night, so snow plows will have an easier time getting through town. Doylestown Borough Mayor Libby White on Friday morning declared a winter storm emergency. The declaration means people are asked not to park on posted snow routes after 6 p.m. Friday night. "Your cooperation will allow our plow crews to more effectively serve you," borough leaders said in a notification sent to residents on the borough's e-mail notification system. A winter storm, which The Weather Channel has named "Nemo," is headed for the northeast Friday night. Friday morning's forecast for the Doylestown area predicted 4 to 9 inches of snow accumulation, with most of it coming overnight …

The latest forecast for Doylestown greatly increases the amount of snow predicted in Friday's winter storm.
Winter Storm "Nemo" could bring 6 to 12 inches of snow to the Doylestown area Friday and Saturday. The latest forecast from the National Weather Service predicts that light snow will start after 2 a.m. on Friday. Snow and rain is expected throughout Friday before switching to all snow after about 4 p.m. Snow accumulation is expected to reach 1 to 3 inches on 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 the Central Bucks County area. The National Weather Service issued a winter storm warning for southeast Pennsylvania, including the Doylestown area at 3:20 p.m. on Thursday, predicting 4 to 8 inches of snow, with a trace of ice. The …

Doylestown could get snow and/or a wintry mix on Friday as a big winter storm heads for New England.
A "potentially historic" winter storm is headed for the northeast and Bucks County is expected to be on the southern edge of it. Forecasts are still uncertain for the storm The Weather Channel has dubbed "Nemo," but weather experts are growing more certain that it is indeed on its way. Wednesday afternoon, the National Weather Service issued a "Hazardous Weather Outlook" for southeast Pennsylvania. The forecast for the Doylestown area as of 7 p.m. Thursday: "A strong coastal storm is expected to affect the area Friday. A period of a wintry mix is possible, expected early Friday morning before changing to rain during the day. The rain will likely change back to snow Friday night. Some accumulation is possible. Gusty winds are also likely …

"Khan" is expected to drop one to two inches of snow in the suburbs of Philadelphia starting late Friday afternoon.
The light snow expected to impact the Friday evening commute in the Philadelphia region now has a name, thanks to the Weather Channel. "Winter Storm Khan" may result in up to a half-inch of ice accumulation, which could lead to power outages and "major travel issues," the network said in explaining its rationale for naming the storm. Locally, the wrath of Khan is expected to deposit one and two inches of snow in the western suburbs of Philadelphia, according to Royersford-based Phillyweather.net. More enterprising forecasts have called for up to three inches. Whether the Poconos and other points northeast receive any snow at all is reliant upon whether dry air causes precipitation to evaporate before it reaches the ground. Up to four …
Snow will fall on the area just in time for the evening commute, according to the Weather Channel.
Don't forget the hat and mittens this weekend; it's going to be cold and snowy, according to the Weather Channel. The forecast for the Doylestown area calls for a 100 percent chance of snow today, with accumulation of about an inch or so. The Weather Channel is predicting the snow will start right around the time of the evening commute, so drivers should use caution. Saturday's forecast calls for partly cloudy skies and a high of 28. Sunday should be similiar, with a high of 30. The frigid weather should give way to more mild temperatures by Tuesday.

Winter's making a prolonged appearance this week...and it could snow more than once before the week is out.
The incoming cold regime will bring some rather cold temperatures by Philadelphia standards to our region ― highs on Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday may not break 30 degrees as we get in the grip of some pretty cold air across the eastern half of the nation. This cold has been largely in the Great Basin so far this month ― parts of Nevada are running more than twenty degrees below normal! Temperatures here won't be that cold, but could go down to ten degrees colder than average over the coming week. Along with the incoming cold, light snow and flurries could cross the region later on Monday with a weak clipper and also on Wednesday with a relatively weak disturbance. Monday's system may be more substantive than Wednesday's but either …

After flirting with March-like temperatures, we're going to return to winter around the Delaware Valley, with colder temperatures lurking down the line.
Reality in January isn't temperatures in the 50s or even 60s. "Normal" is highs in the 30s to around 40, which is the air that's more likely in our cards over the coming days. A cold front slides on through during the course of Monday and begins the downward descent in temperatures, with our temperatures dropping from the upper half of the 50s on Monday morning to lower 30s around the region by Tuesday morning. Along with the frontal passage, a wave of energy will push northeast along the front and spread light rain and, perhaps, some light snow along with it. Given the push of the front southeast through the region, the shield of light rain and snow may miss the northwest 'burbs of Philadelphia but be better confined to South Jersey and …

When it snows, ain't it thrillin' - at least for the first snowfall. Central Bucks County enjoyed its first taste of the 2012-2013 winter on Tuesday with a light accumulation of snow. It was enough to coat tree branches and bushes with a "mantle of white," and in some places, even was thick enough to require shoveling. The white stuff lured kids and adults alike outside to play in, walk in or just take in the wintery wonderland. Did you snap a pic of the snow? Share it here.

The National Weather Service reports that Bucks County can expect about an inch of snow overnight -- enough to make Tuesday's commute slippery. The Hazardous Weather Outlook posted by NWS states that an additional inch or so could accumulate Tuesday, possibly mixed with rain. Any remaining snow will probably be washed away by afternoon rain. Here's the NWS forecast:
