Now that we are within 6 hours of the weather event, the path, snow totals, and wind speeds are starting to finally be more accurate. The storm has tracked a bit closer to the coast which will mean more snow for New Jersey.
The National Weather Service put out a weather briefing at 5 pm. Here is the latest.
Blizzard conditions are expected near the New Jersey coast with strong wind gusts, reduced visibility, and snowfall of 10 to 18 inches. North to northwesterly winds will be 30 to 40 MPH with gusts around 50 MPH.
Heavy snow is anticipated at least as far inland as the I-95 Corridor with amounts generally 5 to 10 inches. The I-95 Corridor will have northerly winds of 20 to 30 MPH with gusts around 40 MPH.
Minor coastal flooding is expected on Saturday morning along the coasts of New Jersey and Delaware with moderate flooding in Cape May and Sussex (DE) Counties.
Dangerous wind chill values as low as 20° below zero will take place on Saturday night and Sunday morning, especially in the Poconos.

This will be the last briefing of this storm.
