H. Snow. Track 1. Track 2. Track 3. Snowstorm.
All snowstorms are associated with an area of low pressure. Snow usually falls to the north and/or west of a low pressure. Snowstorms can be small storms (less than 6 inches) or big storms (greater than 6 inches). They usually occur between December and March, although we have had rare snowstorms in November and April.
Snowstorms that impact the Philadelphia region can be the result of a weak low, moderate low, or strong low. Usually it is the dynamic interaction between a low pressure to our south and a high pressure to our north and/or west that produces our most significant snowstorms.
