5:27 pm
wednesday night so we're looking at about a 24 hour event but the key times between about 10 o'clock in the morning wednesday until about 6 o'clock, so about eight hours of really intense snow. so, as far as expected snowfall this could be a really big deal for a big chunk of our viewing area. we're looking at eight to 16-inches, basically philadelphia, areas north, areas northeast. as we get more information on the track we should be able to narrow this down a bit. where we get some mixing across southern jersey, northern delaware, about four to 8-inches, right along the coast a lot of rain mixing in so that will really limit snowfall amounts two to 4 inches and it will be gusty but future tracker showing instead of wind gusts of 60 to 70 miles an hour like friday we're looking at wind gusts generally about 35 to about 45 miles per hour. but it could cause some additional power outages. so, the five day at 5:00 showing tomorrow pretty nice day. increasing clouds, 47. wednesday windy with heavy snow, 37. blustery on thursday behind that system 44.
