Snow Spreads up the I-95 Corridor Tonight

We are locked in for a snowstorm in the Northeast. Totals will be kind of tricky to predict, but we are expecting up to 3″ for the major cities of DC, Philly, and NYC. Farther to the west in the suburbs, we could see locally higher totals. One issue that would lessen confidence is a warm ground and the air isn’t exact Arctic, and no blocking in place over Greenland.

HRRR hi-res snow totals for tonight’s storm (these totals are not to be taken as exact amounts):

The snow is starting to show up on radar, and should continue into the evening hours. Conditions will deteriorate across the region as night falls. Roads will become slick as will sidewalks and driveways. If you must go out, use extreme caution!

DC could be on the edge of a wintry mix and rain. Snow totals may not be too significant there.

Future radar is shown for 7pm Saturday:

Some predicted snow totals for Southeast PA from East Coast Weather Authority:

Philadelphia – 2-4″

Norristown – 3-6″

Reading – 4-7″

Lancaster – 4-7″

Allentown – 4-7″

Lansdale – 3-6″
