A BLIZZARD WARNING REMAINS IN EFFECT FROM 4 PM THIS AFTERNOON TO 7 PM EST SATURDAY.

A STORM SYSTEM DEVELOPING OVER THE GULF COAST TODAY WILL PASS OFF THE CAROLINA COAST TONIGHT AND THEN CONTINUE TO THE NORTHEAST ON SATURDAY.

SNOWFALL TOTALS OF 12 TO 18 INCHES ARE EXPECTED NEAR THE DELAWARE AND CENTRAL NEW JERSEY COAST WITH UP TO 22 INCHES POSSIBLE OVER SOUTHERN NEW JERSEY AND THE CENTRAL DELMARVA. STRENGTHENING WINDS TONIGHT AND SATURDAY WILL CREATE BLOWING AND DRIFTING SNOW WHICH WILL REDUCE VISIBILITIES TO UNDER ONE QUARTER OF A MILE AT TIMES.

A BLIZZARD WARNING MEANS SEVERE WINTER WEATHER CONDITIONS ARE EXPECTED. FALLING AND BLOWING SNOW WITH STRONG WINDS AND POOR VISIBILITIES ARE LIKELY. THIS WILL LEAD TO WHITEOUT CONDITIONS... MAKING TRAVEL EXTREMELY DANGEROUS. CONTINUE TO MONITOR THE LATEST FORECASTS FROM YOUR NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE.


I wish I was a bear so I could crawl into a fetal position and hibernate all winter long...

It snowing heavily here.Big soft flakes. Very pretty, but it rained earlier and there is a thin layer of ice under the snow. A good day to stay in and knit.

I know. Much of the same here. I'm about to dig through the pantry and make a crockpot full of something...
