Discussion

An influx of colder air has transitioned all precipitation to snow and the snow will continue for much of today, heavy at times, up and down the I-95 corridor. Temperatures will actually drop as the day progresses and then bottom out late tonight in the single digits following today’s snowfall - perhaps in record-breaking territory. Accumulations should average 6-10 inches in the region, but even higher amounts are possible in isolated spots. It’ll stay very cold on Friday to close out the work week despite brilliant sunshine, but then temperatures will modify slowly over the weekend along with dry weather conditions. Despite a substantial break in the overall pattern, this is likely not winter's last blast. The snow will begin the day on the "heavy, wet" side clinging to the previously wet branches and other surfaces, but may end up "drier and fluffier" later in the day as temperatures continue to drop.
