10:15 AM | Still on the northern fringes, snow threat late today/early tonight in southern half of area
The storm that dumped massive amounts of snow on much of Colorado yesterday is now centered over Missouri with heavy snow falling over Nebraska and Iowa. Incredible reports of snow were reported in Colorado with 49 inches near Black Hawk, 36 inches in Evergreen and West Jamestown, 21 inches near Boulder and 15 in Denver. This will head to the eastern states over the next 12 to 24 hours and we will be on the northern fringes here in the Philly metro region as the storm heads towards the coast. The greatest likelihood for the snow will be across the southern half of our region including places like southern Chester, Delaware and Philadelphia Counties where little or no accumulation is expected. The precipitation is likely to begin late this afternoon or early this evening as snow, or a mix of rain and snow, but should then changeover to all snow later this evening. The snow threat winds down by late tonight and the next few days will just be moderately cool. Elsewhere, no snow is expected from this system in New York City and points north and east as I-80 is roughly the extreme northern cutoff location. Longer term, there are continued signs for a big cool down in the Mid-Atlantic region as February rolls on.
