March may well come in like a lion. A white, wet, wild lion. According to the National Weather Service and AccuWeather, 3 to 6 inches of snow - perhaps more - could fall in the region tonight and into tomorrow. Along the Jersey Shore, less accumulation is expected. Two storms were on the way. The first, arriving from the south, was expected to bring light snow early today. Then, after a break, a heavier downfall is possible, with strong winds stirring and spreading the snow.

Welcome to this winter's coldest stretch of days. It could wind up as the longest period with lows under 30 in nearly two years. And yet, it's typical January weather. In Philadelphia, November had two days fall into the 20s, and December had just one. But starting with Wednesday, when the low hit 27, temperatures might fall into the upper 20s every night for five or six straight days, according to the National Weather Service and AccuWeather. Highs aren't expected to reach the mid 40s again till Monday or Tuesday.

Break out the grills and coolers, dust off the boom box and squeeze into those Speedos, baby. It's gonna feel like summer all weekend long. Memorial Day weekend will be beautiful, according to AccuWeather. The 1999 Farmers' Almanac hit the nail right on the head when it predicted a "fair, pleasant Memorial Day holiday. " The sun will rule from Center City to the Poconos to the Jersey shore, said AccuWeather meteorologist Tony Zartman. The city will be sun-drenched tomorrow and Sunday with highs around 88. Memorial Day will feature sunshine with a few clouds and a high closer to 90. Winds will be from the southwest 7 to 14 mph during the days.

Enough, already. But snow this winter persists - with a major winter storm expected to hit late today. And this one will take some digging, with at least 8 and as many as 16 inches predicted. A little more than an inch of snow fell yesterday on the Philadelphia region. Forecasters at the National Weather Service say 8 to 12 beginning today. Accuweather predicts between 8 and 16. "From late Sunday into Monday it's going to be a mess," said Jim Eberwine, a Weather Service meteorologist based in Mount Holly.

With November's ending a remarkable streak of warm months in Philadelphia, meteorologists are saying they expect the next few months to be eventful, chilly, and snowy. By the time the snow season is over, from 25 to 30 inches of snow could land atop the region, with plenty of panic opportunities. That's the consensus based on a handful of preseason outlooks, and it would be six to seven times more snow than last season. But experience indicates that actual results may vary.

LEWISTON, MAINE - The weather world is full of high-profile meteorologists like NBC's Al Roker and the Weather Channel's Jim Cantore. But the guy making the forecasts for the Farmers' Almanac is more like the man behind the curtain. He's cloaked in mystery. The publisher of the 196-year-old almanac, which goes on sale this week, takes great pains to protect the identity of its reclusive weather soothsayer, who operates under the pseudonym Caleb Weatherbee. Caleb's real name and hometown are a secret.

It was so warm yesterday that Diane Sand was wearing only shorts, sneaks and her Vassar sweatshirt while walking her dogs on Kelly Drive near the Art Museum. No hat. No muffler. No down jacket. No boots. They're not needed when the mercury hits 61, as it did at 11 a.m. yesterday. That's much warmer than the average high temperatures in the upper 40s for the date. But AccuWeather says much colder weather is expected this weekend. Yesterday, because of the balmy weather, bikers, joggers and other lightly- clad pedestrians joined Center City resident Sand and her Rhodesian ridgeback dogs, Billy, 4, and his mother, Margo, 9. This year's relatively warm weather is a welcome relief after a dreadful December, which had an average temperature of only 25.1 degrees, reports AccuWeather forecaster Alex Sosnowski.
