A couple other notes to mention…winds will increase in intensity during this storm system and – given the fact that the snow is likely to be of the “wet” variety  and it’ll follow a lengthy period of rain, there can be “weighed down” tree limbs in at least parts of the Mid-Atlantic region…in other words, power outages are on the table. For example, winds in the NYC metro can reach 30-40 mph out of the northeast during the height of the storm and tree limbs can be weighted down if heavy snow burst materializes after a period of rain. Also, given a lengthy fetch of onshore winds during the storm, coastal flooding is certainly a threat late tonight and Tuesday in areas such as coastal New Jersey, Delmarva Peninsula, and the Maryland Counties just to the east of DC.

Updated snowfall estimates are as follows for the I-95 corridor:

DC:                 ranging from a coating just to the south and east of the metro area to as much as 2-3 inches in some of the far north and west suburbs

Philly:             3-6 inches (higher amounts in the range across the northern suburbs (e.g., Upper Bucks) and lower amounts in southern sections (e.g., southern Chester))

NYC:               4-8 inches

Stay tuned…this is a dynamic storm.
