7:00 AM Update
Good Morning Folks ! This is going to be a Historical Storm for the entire Delaware Valley Region. I'm now going with widespread 14"-20" amounts across the entire Delaware Valley, which includes SE PA (PHL) Southern/Central NJ, and Central/Northern DE. In addition I'm expecting some spots, especially in DE and Southern NJ to receive near 24" of snowfall.
Snow will continue heavy at times for today and into much of this evening with 1"-3" per hour rates during heavier periods of snow. Snow will become more light to moderate during the overnight hours and end by early Sunday morning. Winds will continue to increase as our coastal storm intensifies off the M/A coast today and tonight. Near Blizzard conditions can be expected later today and tonight. Winds of 15-30 Mph and gust to 45 Mph can be expected.
14"-20" with some spots near 24"

Enjoy the Storm,
My Final Call
For The Delaware Valley Region/ DCA, BWI, NYC Areas.
Please see my preliminary Call from yesterday for full discussion. I'm increasing the snowfall totals in many areas. This is going to be a whopper of a storm, and many areas from DCA to DE and Southern/Central NJ will see 8"-16" amounts and some local amounts to 18" are possible in this zone.(See snowfall Map)
Snow will move into the Delaware Valley later tonight and early Saturday Morning. This snow will become heavy at times during the afternoon hours and continue into much of Saturday night. Snowfall rates of 1"-2" per hour are likely for areas mainly South and East of PHL. Winds will increase out of the NE and North @ 15-25 MPH and gusts to 35 MPH. Blowing and drifting snow will develop during Saturday night. Snow should taper down and end later Saturday night into Sunday morning, from west to east.
Enjoy the Storm Folks !
