Philly’s am commute looks to be messy, but these snow amounts are way overdone. There will not be anywhere near 5 inches of snow. These models include sleet output, therefore cutting down on the totals. The system will start out late tonight as rain, and then will change over to sleet for a while before ending as light snow. Possibly only the grassy surfaces and sidewalks will get coated before the system ends and moves away.
Much more major system heading in for the middle of next week for PA and NJ!
