Snow and freezing rain are expected to move into the area overnight, continuing until 11 am on Tuesday morning, before changing over to rain. Therefore, the Tuesday morning rush may be impacted. The peak of this winter event should be Tuesday morning before the precipitation moves east-northeast and out of the area by the afternoon.

The latest road conditions for Chester County can be found at the MyChesCo Traffic Center.

As for the days ahead, the weather pattern is expected to remain active and volatile for the rest of the week and beyond, making it more difficult to predict. However, the current forecast shows a second winter weather event moving through Chester County, and the surrounding areas, starting Wednesday night and continuing through Friday. Additionally, any precipitation for this event is increasingly favoring snow.

The bottom line for the Wednesday through Friday period is that one or more periods of wintry weather is likely, with meaningful impacts possible for much of Chester County. Additionally, another round of wintry weather could potentially impact portions of the area on Sunday or Monday.
