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.

Psychiatrist Paul Jay Fink, a member of the 195th class of Central High School of Philadelphia, laughs as he talks with entertainer Bill Cosby, a member of the 204th class. The two, along with Navy Vice Adm. Conrad C. Lautenbacher and Joel N. Myers, founder of AccuWeather, were inducted into the Central High Hall of Fame at a ceremony last night.

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.

ISSUE | TURNPIKE SNARL Paying for forecasts? Last month's traffic boondoggle on a western stretch of the Pennsylvania Turnpike is one more example of the lack of consequences for poor performance by government workers ("Turnpike: Blizzard had flawed forecast," Feb. 17). At legislative hearings, turnpike officials were answering the same questions that legislators asked two years ago, when an eastern stretch near Willow Grove was closed for eight hours. Nothing has changed, and I would bet that no one even gets a reprimand.

With a sunny forecast for Saturday, the first Mummers Mardi Gras Parade in Manayunk is set to go. The parade was originally scheduled for Sunday, but was pushed off under a threat of daylong rain. Organizers hope the parade, a fund-raiser for the Mummers, will turn into an annual event. "If it works well, we'll definitely work toward doing it again," said Jane Lipton, executive director of the Manayunk Development Corp. "I would love for this to become a Manayunk tradition.

Snow is mentioned in the forecast for early next week. Weather.com mentions "rain/snow" next Monday and Monday night. AccuWeather.com says "rain mixing with snow" the following day. One could justify more faith in a certain late-March hare. Better known as the Easter Bunny. At least we're pretty sure chocolate eggs and jelly beans will arrive as scheduled. [*Editor's note: "late-March hate" was hyphenated above so no one suspects the critter's dead.] Snow? Predicted this far in advance?

Wednesday's daylong snow and rain could be the biggest storm to hit the region this winter - which isn't saying much. Most of the region will get two to four inches of snow, with local extremes in South Jersey or Philadelphia's western suburbs of as much as eight inches, said Dave Dombek, senior meteorologist at AccuWeather Inc. "You look at this winter for Philly, for the most part, has been a dud," Dombek said, laughing. "The bar's not set very high. . . . It's like been in a snow drought this winter.

"Brutal cold wave heading for the U.S.," trumpets AccuWeather.com. Yet Philadelphia's forecast for the next week looks wonderfully mild, with highs in the mid 50s today, upper 40s Thursday and Friday, and upper 50s Saturday, Sunday and Monday, according to the National Weather Service. It could even hit 60 on Sunday. Lows might stay in the 40s from Friday night to Monday night in Philadelphia. Then come "bitter cold" and "progressively colder and colder waves of air"? Maybe.

With Dec. 25 a week and a day away, it's time to ask: Any shot at a White Christmas? For Pennsylvania, Weather.com's answer seems to be: Yes, No, and Maybe. And even that may be optimistic. According to the website's White Christmas map, snow is "Likely" early next week in the western half of the state, "Possible" along a band from Harrisburg to Scranton, and "Not Likely" in Philadelphia, its immediate suburbs, New Jersey, Delaware and Eastern Maryland. But even in Pittsburgh and State College, there's no more than a 20 percent chance of snow on Christmas or the day before, according to Weather.com's own extended forecasts.

Still recovering from the unprecedented ravages of Sandy, the region is primed for an extraordinary foretaste of winter with the potential for heavy, wet snow; gale-force gusts; and January-type wind-chills. The National Weather Service has posted a coastal-flood warning for the Jersey Shore for Wednesday into Thursday morning and a "winter weather advisory" for accumulating snow for Philadelphia and the neighboring counties on both sides of the river. If the region has ever experienced such a sequence - a wintry storm within 10 days of a severe battering by a hybrid tropical cyclone - no one could recall it. "If we have locusts next week, you know we're really in trouble," said Gary Szatkowski, meteorologist in charge of the National Weather Service in Mount Holly.
