Clipper System to Bring Snow and Gusty Winds This Weekend

The National Weather Service has issued a forecast indicating a "clipper system" moving into the area, bringing with it a mix of weather conditions starting Thursday night. This system is expected to introduce a combination of rain, snow showers, and notably strong gusty winds. While Thursday will remain mostly dry, the clipper system's arrival will mark the beginning of more active weather.

Following a brief period of calmer conditions on Friday, another low-pressure system is predicted to bring accumulating snow to the region from Friday night into Saturday. The specifics of the forecast include:

  • Friday: The day is expected to be sunny with a high temperature near 40 degrees. It will be breezy, with west winds blowing at 10 to 20 mph and gusts reaching up to 30 mph.

  • Friday Night: Snow is anticipated to begin mainly after 1 am, with temperatures dropping to around 29 degrees. Winds will shift from west around 5 mph to calm by the evening. The chance of precipitation is 100%, with new snow accumulation of 1 to 2 inches possible.

  • Saturday: Snow chances continue mainly before 10 am, leading to a mostly cloudy day with a high near 36 degrees. The wind will pick up from the west at 5 to 10 mph in the morning, increasing to 10 to 15 mph in the afternoon. The chance of precipitation stands at 50%, with less than one inch of new snow accumulation expected.

Chief Molloy Addresses Sexual Assault Investigation at Abington Senior High

Chief Patrick Molloy of the Abington Township Police Department has addressed the community with a crucial update regarding the investigation into Jordan Jones, a former school resource officer at Abington Senior High School. Jones faces serious allegations and has been charged with felony counts of institutional sexual assault, endangering the welfare of children, and corruption of minors, following his arrest on Tuesday, February 13.

In a video message, Chief Molloy emphasized the Abington Township Police Department's unwavering commitment to maintaining its strong partnership with the Abington School District. He assured the public that the department is dedicated to regaining the trust of the school community and reflected on the profound impact the incident has had, particularly on the victim and the broader community.

The investigation, conducted in collaboration with the Montgomery County Detective Bureau, has led to the criminal charges against Jones. Chief Molloy highlighted the active status of the investigation and urged anyone with additional information, or those who may have been affected, to come forward and contact Detective Walt Kerr.

In response to concerns about the vacancy left by Jones, Chief Molloy stated that the department is working closely with the school district to ensure the safety and security of the school community. A former school resource officer (SRO) and another experienced officer have been temporarily assigned to the schools, ensuring that the absence does not compromise the safety of students and staff.

This situation underscores the importance of vigilance, transparency, and community cooperation in addressing and preventing such incidents. The Abington Township Police Department's proactive approach to communication and its efforts to support the victims and restore trust are pivotal during this challenging time.
