Weather Service issues winter storm watch

The National Weather Service has issued a winter storm watch for southeastern Pennsylvania from Friday, Jan. 21, into Sunday morning, Jan. 23.

The storm watch, which includes Delaware and Chester counties, means a potential exists for significant accumulations of snow that could adversely impact travel.

Accumulations of 12 to 16 inches are predicted in the vicinity of the I-95 corridor, with eight to 12 inches expected in Philadelphia’s northern suburbs, central New Jersey, and central Delmarva.

The snow is likely to begin Friday night after the evening commute and continue, heavy at times, into Sunday morning. It may be accompanied by northeast winds of 15 to 25 mph with gusts up to 35 mph.

Snow may be dry and puffy initially, but will become wetter and heavier as the storm progresses, which could make shoveling problematic and could cause power outages as heavy snow builds up on wires and trees.
