6:45 PM | Intense snow band headed for Philly metro region

Discussion

An intense band of heavy snow is advancing towards the Philly metro region and will pass through Chester County first between 7 and 7:30 PM and then Delaware and Montgomery Counties between 8 and 8:30 PM and then Bucks and Philadelphia Counties between 8:30 and 9 PM. This band is the leading edge of the Arctic invasion and it will contain heavy snow bursts, strong wind gusts, a quick drop in temperatures and drastically reduced visibilities. All of this will make for dangerous driving conditions with "freeze-up" conditions as temperatures drop to well below freezing during the next several hours.
