Nor'easter to Bring Big Snow Storm

Jan 20, 2016


WASHINGTON (AP) - Brace for a blast of snow from a nor'easter at week's end with the potential for significant snowfall.

The National Weather Service's Weather Prediction Center warns of heavy, "perhaps crippling" snow across the northern mid-Atlantic region including Baltimore, Washington and Philadelphia.

On Wednesday, the weather service issued blizzard and winter storm watches for parts of Maryland, Washington, Virginia and West Virginia. The watches start as early as Thursday and stretch into Saturday.

As the storm moves east Friday, it will bring snow and then will affect Philadelphia and New York City as it moves north.

Here on Delmarva expect some snow overnight with a break on Thursday followed by a 70 percent chance come Friday.
