Bolaris: A close shave of snow tonight
WIth bitter cold air locked in place, temperatures today will remain in the teens. At the same time I'm watching a Mid-Atlantic snowstorm that looks to deliver a good swath of at least 6-8 inch snow, making life difficult for the Carolinas and eastern Virginia. (Join the club.)
For Philadelphia it will be a close shave, as some snow is possible right along the I-95 corridor. As it stands now, a coating likely - maybe an inch - starting right after the Tuesday evening rush.
But for southern coastal New Jersey across Cape May County as much as 2-4 inches cannot be ruled out, with interior South Jersey picking up 1-2 inches.
Sussex County in Delaware and along the beaches will get the biggest impact from the storm with 3-5 inches likely.
North and west of I-95, we're just looking at flurries with no accumulations.
Timing of the snow will be from 7 p.m. to 1 a.m. across Philly and South Jersey, with shore locations seeing an end closer to 2 a.m.
The storm will pull away Wednesday morning with gusty winds and temperatures still very cold and highs around 24 and wind chills in the single numbers.
My Super Bowl forecast still looks dry.
Kickoff temperature: 35
Winds northwest at 8-14 mph and then subsiding.
WEATHER NOT A MAJOR FACTOR.
