Snow totals bumped up

As mentioned, the earlier forecast of 1 to 2 inches in and around Philadelphia, looked to be on the conservative side.

The National Weather Service has now upped the projected amount to 2 to 4 in the city, and 4 to 6 in some of the northern and western suburbs.

We expect some winter weather advisories and watches to go up with the afternoon forecast packages.

The models have come into agreement on the potential for a powerful storm, with rain on Friday changing over to snow sometime during the night and continuing into Saturday.

Precise snow totals are another matter, but the forecast trend so far today has been upward.

Here is the updated snow map.
