National Weather Service Update

DE Severe Weather Awareness Week continues! Today we talk about lightning. You may be surprised how common lightning is in our area. Take a look at this lightning density map; Delaware is even on par with some portions of the Deep South! https://www.weather.gov/phi/DEMASeverewxweek #DEwx #PrepareDE

Northwest winds will increase today, bringing in colder and very dry air. Wind chills tonight will be quite low, from 0 to -10 in the Poconos to the single digits and teens elsewhere. Bundle up! #pawx #njwx #dewx #mdwx

It's time for a little science on the evening shift! Most people are familiar with cold fronts and warm fronts, but did you know there are also stationary fronts, occluded fronts, and dry lines? All of which are the boundary between two different air masses. (thread)

We're not gonna lie. It's going to be cold & windy for most of this weekend. Will feel a lot like mid-January as opposed to early March. The good news? No snow!! The better news? After this weekend, there's a light at the end of the tunnel! For more:

A mild and pleasant early March day on tap for today, but then cold high pressure settles over the area through the weekend. High temps will be similar to late January's highs until finally rebounding by the middle of next week. #TeamNoSnow #NJwx #PAwx #DEwx #MDwx
