My wife just said her phone is now saying 8 to 12 in the city.
Seems a little too warm right now for anything. It is 41 here at 5:10AM
The snow line does appear to be getting close.
Doesn't look like it will amount to anything significant down here, just rain now and the forecast is only calling for 1 to 2 inches in my area. And the ground is so warm, that will hopefully just melt since it will all be over in a few hours. We are lucky with the timing on this, if it had started a little later we could have gotten a nasty ice storm with the temperatures dropping down to 15 degrees tonight.
...WINTER WEATHER ADVISORY REMAINS IN EFFECT UNTIL NOON EST
* LOCATIONS...a portion of northeast Maryland through central
Delaware into the southern tip of New Jersey.
* HAZARD TYPES...Snow and sleet.
* ACCUMULATIONS...Snow accumulation of 1 to 2 inches.
* TIMING...heaviest sleet and snow will fall between 8 am and 11

combination of snow and strong winds could produce isolated

then recovering slightly during the afternoon.
Pouring rain around 5am, now sleeting with a 1/8" coating already on the grass, cars and roads. Radar looks like we are on the sleet/snow line now. Temp is 34f.
Just got back from Cumberland and Cape May Counties, light rain changed to snow flurries around 8:30 AM. Saw a big variation in the rate of snowfall, from flurries to big steady flakes. It was frosting the trees but melting immediately on contact with the roads. Doesn't look like there will be much accumulation, just light flurries here now.
Then we will be back in the mid 50's by Sunday. Interesting February weather… I took this picture 18 hours ago
That 4 lettered word is in the end of week forecast.
So far, the 4 lettered word is "yawn". But don't let that stop you from binge-purchasing bread and milk.
You'd never know that by looking at the amount of brine they laid down on the roads today.
The same up here, really put on heavy. Perhaps they know something the fornacasters don't
If you thought road salt was bad, brine is worse.
Totals are rising a bit...
Uncertainty in Snowfall Forecast:
Overall confidence is moderate; however, the northern extent of accumulating snow is a low-confidence forecast.
A track further north could result in higher totals.
Snow is expected to begin by Saturday evening. It is expected to continue through at least Sunday afternoon before tapering off from north to south. Snow may linger in Delmarva into Sunday night.
There is the potential for 2 to 5 inches of snow in eastern Maryland, Delaware, and southern New Jersey. Locally higher amounts are possible, particularly in southern Delaware and adjacent portions of Maryland.
Up to 2 inches of snow is anticipated for southeastern Pennsylvania and central New Jersey. There may be little accumulating snow north of Philadelphia, though the northern extent of accumulations is currently a low-confidence forecast.
There is a small chance of gale force wind gusts on the coastal waters of New Jersey and Delaware, and on Delaware Bay from Sunday afternoon into Sunday night.
Coastal flooding is not expected with this system.

Wow, this forecast has changed a lot since I checked this afternoon! It said I would get 2" then, now it's 5".
The mid-west is getting plastered. It is a big storm, now just below Lake Superior and headed east.
With another big one coming in to the nw. I read somewhere an early prediction for next weekend from that one; double digit snow.
Perhaps this link I posted in mid-December was correct.
Getting deeper down south.
We had around 3 to 4 inches on the ground when I went out this morning. Amazing how this forecast went from one inch to almost a foot by the time it's all over.
Snow before 4pm, then snow and sleet likely. High near 35. Northeast wind around 14 mph, with gusts as high as 25 mph. Chance of precipitation is 80%. Total daytime snow and sleet accumulation of 2 to 4 inches possible.
Snow likely, mainly before 1am. Cloudy, with a low around 24. North wind around 14 mph, with gusts as high as 25 mph. Chance of precipitation is 70%. New snow accumulation of 1 to 3 inches possible.
Next week is looking uncomfortably wind chill cold.
