The National Weather Service In Mount Holly has issued a winter storm watch in effect from Friday evening into Sunday morning.
Snow accumulations of 12 to 16 inches in the vicinity of the I-95 corridor and 8 to 12 inches over the Philly's northern suburbs.
Snow is expected to begin Friday evening after the evening commute then continue heavy into Sunday morning.
Winds will be from the northeast 15 to 25 mph inland with gusts up to 35 mph with temperatures...in the low 30s.
The snow may be dry and puffy at the start, but will become wetter and heavier as the event unfolds. Shoveling may be problematic for anyone with physical ailments.
Snow may cling to wires and trees which may cause power outages. Roads will become impassable due to increasing accumulation during the event.
Residents are asked to use their driveways, and their neighbors driveways if possible to remove vehicles from the street to assist the highway department with snow plowing.
Keep yourself and others away from any fallen power lines. You never know when they might be energized. Call PECO right away and report the location of the downed wires. PECO says "If a line falls on your car, stay in your car. If you must get out of the car, jump clear, do not touch any part of your car and the ground at the same time and stay clear of the fallen line."
