Snow Totals

Significant snowfall is expected, with the heaviest amounts favored over eastern Pennsylvania and central and northern New Jersey.The expected area of heaviest snow has shifted northward today. (Think Morristown NJ and Allentown PA).

The exact storm track remains uncertain and a shift in track could bring the heavier snow amounts farther north or south. The heaviest snow is likely during the day Monday, when rates could exceed 1 inch per hour in the heaviest bands. Snow will likely continue into Tuesday, but additional accumulation then will be limited.

Looking at the chart Philadelphia will get 8-12 inches with Cape May County getting 1-2 inches. The most of the snow fall will take place near Morristown NJ with 18-24 inches. The towns just south of Morristown, New Brunswick and Trenton, could get 12-18 inches.


Strong winds will develop especially near the coast and over the waters with gusts reaching 40 to 50+ mph, strongest on Monday, resulting in hazardous boating conditions and potential power outages.

Inland, gusts could reach 35 to 45 mph, resulting in reduced visibility and very hazardous travel in blowing and drifting snow.


Coastal flooding is likely and could reach moderate levels as early as Monday morning along the Atlantic coast and Delaware Bay with additional coastal flooding possible Monday afternoon and Tuesday morning.

Tune back later today for another update (around 5pm).
