THE NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE IN MOUNT HOLLY HAS ISSUED A BLIZZARD
WARNING...WHICH IS IN EFFECT UNTIL MIDNIGHT EST TONIGHT. THE
WINTER STORM WARNING HAS BEEN CANCELLED.

A COASTAL STORM DEVELOPING OFF THE CENTRAL MID ATLANTIC COAST
BEFORE SUNRISE WILL INTENSIFY EXPLOSIVELY TODAY. SNOW...AS WELL AS
SLEET AND EVEN SOME FREEZING RAIN NEAR...SOUTH...AND EAST OF
PHILADELPHIA WILL CHANGE TO ALL SNOW DURING THIS MORNING AS THE
STORM MOVES NORTHWARD. THIS WILL CAUSE WINDS TO BACK TO NORTHEAST
AND NORTH AND BRING COLDER AIR INTO THE REGION. WITH HEAVY SNOW
EXPECTED TO DECREASE VISIBILITIES...AND STRONG WINDS GUSTING TO 35
TO 45 MILES AN HOUR THIS AFTERNOON...BLIZZARD CONDITIONS ARE
EXPECTED AT TIMES MAINLY FROM ABOUT MIDDAY AND THROUGH THE
AFTERNOON...POSSIBLY PERSISTING INTO EARLY TONIGHT BEFORE TAPERING
OFF. HOWEVER...WINDS WILL CONTINUE TO BE STRONG THIS EVENING SO
THERE WILL BE PLENTY OF BLOWING SNOW WITH REDUCED VISIBILITIES AS
WELL TONIGHT.

TOTAL SNOW ACCUMULATIONS ARE EXPECTED TO RANGE FROM 12 TO 22
INCHES INTO EARLY TONIGHT...WITH THE HIGHEST AMOUNTS STRADDLING
THE INTERSTATE 95 CORRIDOR.

NEAR-BLIZZARD OR BLIZZARD CONDITIONS ARE RARE FOR OUR AREA...SO
IT IS LIKELY THAT PEOPLE WILL NOT REALIZE THE PERIL THAT EXISTS
IN VENTURING OUT IN SUCH STORMS. LIFE-THREATENING CONDITIONS ARE
POSSIBLE...AND DRIVING WILL BE HAZARDOUS AT BEST DURING THIS
WINTER STORM TODAY AND EARLY TONIGHT. IT IS HIGHLY RECOMMENDED
THAT TRAVEL BE CURTAILED DUE TO THE DANGEROUS CONDITIONS...AND
ONLY DRIVE IF IT IS TRULY AN EMERGENCY SITUATION.

A BLIZZARD WARNING MEANS SEVERE WINTER WEATHER CONDITIONS ARE
EXPECTED OR OCCURRING. FALLING AND BLOWING SNOW WITH STRONG WINDS
AND POOR VISIBILITIES ARE LIKELY. THIS WILL LEAD TO WHITEOUT
CONDITIONS...MAKING TRAVEL EXTREMELY DANGEROUS. DO NOT TRAVEL. IF
YOU MUST TRAVEL...HAVE A WINTER SURVIVAL KIT WITH YOU. IF YOU GET
STRANDED...STAY WITH YOUR VEHICLE.
