... Winter Storm Warning in effect from noon Monday to 6 PM EST
Tuesday...

The National Weather Service in Mount Holly has issued a Winter
Storm Warning for heavy snow, which is in effect from noon Monday
to 6 PM EST Tuesday. The Winter Storm Watch is no longer in
effect.

* Hazard types... heavy snow with blowing and drifting.

* Snow accumulations... 14 to 24 inches.

* Timing... snow develops between midnight tonight and 5 am Monday,
then it continues through the day. The snow is expected to become
heavy at times late Monday afternoon through Tuesday morning
when snowfall rates of a couple of inches per hour can occur at
times, then taper off during Tuesday afternoon.

* Impacts... some impact on the Monday morning commute, then
significant and widespread impacts thereafter. Areas of blowing
and drifting snow will add to the hazardous conditions.

* Winds... northeast 10 to 15 mph with gusts to 20 mph Monday, then
becoming north 15 to 25 mph with gusts to 30 mph Monday night
into Tuesday.

* Temperatures... ranging from the mid 20s to lower 30s Monday,
then dropping into the lower to mid 20s Monday night into
Tuesday.

* Visibilities... as low as one quarter mile at times.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

A Winter Storm Warning means significant amounts of snow is
expected, and strong winds are possible. This will make travel
very hazardous or impossible at times.







... Icing of pavements possible overnight from near reading to
Philadelphia Pennsylvania and its nearby suburbs...

Intermittent light snow combined with temperatures falling into
and through the 20s overnight will probably result in dangerous
patches of icing on all untreated surfaces. It is recommended to
slow down and leave more than the usual distance between you and
the car ahead as well as moving toward intersections.
