Lower Bucks Braces For 4th Snow Storm Of February

Heavy snow falls on the WBCB 1490 station in January 2018.

More snow may be on the way in Lower Bucks.

The National Weather Service predicts three to five inches will fall starting at about 4 a.m. Thursday morning. While light initially, it may get heavier in the early afternoon.

This is the fourth separate snow storm expected in Lower Bucks this month.

The first storm came on the first few days of the month with 7-13″ in the local area. Then a few days later, more snow fell on Feb. 7. This brought about half a foot of snow to most of Lower Bucks.

Then last Wednesday, another two to three inches of snow fell. In some areas, the snow has not even completely melted since the start of the month.

In preparation for the upcoming snow fall, local municipalities are declaring snow emergencies. By now, most should be familiar with these procedures.

Many of these emergencies go into effect sometime overnight Wednesday into Thursday and end Friday evening.

People should make sure their vehicles are off the roadways before snow fall begins. In the last storm, the Falls Township Police Department said it was towing vehicles not in driveways.

In Bristol Borough, there are limited parking restrictions in place. People cannot park on Mill Street or the 100 block of Radcliffe Street starting 11 p.m. Wednesday until the road is cleared.
