10 Inches of Snow Possible in Bensalem

The National Weather Service is now calling for 4 to 10 inches of snow in Bucks County.

A winter storm could bring 4 to 10 inches of snow to the Bensalem area Friday and Saturday, the National Weather Service predicts.

A winter storm warning is in effect from 3 p.m. Friday until 6 a.m. on Saturday, according to the weather service. The warning first called for 4 to 8 inches of snow with traces of ice, but was increased to an estimate of 4 to 10 inches.

The storm may start as rain and become snow in the afternoon. The warning states that 1 to 2 inches per hour are expected for several hours Friday evening, with a small chance for a thunderstorm.

The snow is expected to taper to flurries by dawn on Saturday and be a sunny, but cold afternoon.

Bensalem Patch will continue to monitor the forecast, but for now, the weather service says to prepare for major travel delays Friday.

A winter storm warning means a significant amount of snow, sleet and ice are expected with strong winds possible, making travel hazardous or impossible, according to the service.

Thank you Bensalem Public Works for an outstanding job (as usual) plowing the streets. I was awake at 6:30 and my street, a small side street, was clean to the black-top. AWESOME!.
