That Saturday snow threat for the Philadelphia region appears to be all but toast.
The National Weather Service on Friday afternoon still listed a 10 percent chance of up to 3 inches of snow in its "winter weather" package, it was becoming more unlikely that local road departments will be sending out the plows.
But whatever does or doesn't happen on Saturday, the weather already is having impacts.
The potential snow threat inspired Philadelphia to postpone its annual "Spring Cleaning" event, and out on the Main Line Radnor Township has pushed back its "Eggstravaganza" egg hunt.
Some light snow or rain remained possible early Saturday, and the forecasts call for an outside chance of snow Saturday night as a coastal storm develops.
In any event, it appears that the endless March will persist into the second week of April, with another coastal-storm threat looming for early in the workweek.
On the brighter side, by the time the city holds its rescheduled spring cleanup event a week from Saturday, temperatures might approach actual April levels.
