Good Tuesday morning NWS Mount Holly FB friends and travelers to NJ DE e PA e MD. Winter will become more dangerous Wednesday night-Saturday night (snow and near record cold).
Snow will occur near and east of I-95 later Wed night-Thursday with plowable amounts, especially near the Atlantic coasts (local area graphic attached).
Wind chills of 20 to 30 below zero will become common in the high terrain near and north of I-80 Thu night-Saturday evening; with wind chill values occasionally 5 to 15 below zero elsewhere.
This is definitely going to be more serious than what has already occurred the past two days.
To minimize the adverse impact of the upcoming cold, recommendations include ensuring building heating systems and all transportation systems are adequately fueled and in good working condition. Pets will quickly suffer if left outside for more than a few minutes.
Above normal (and above freezing) temps are expected next Monday January 8th. ... See MoreSee Less
