    Below is the latest snowfall forecast map for the storm destined to become a post-Christmas Day blizzard from Philadelphia northward.

    For a larger version of this map, check out the AccuWeather.com Winter Weather Center.

    It should be stressed that the above map only goes out through Sunday night. Snow on Monday will add to the above totals.

    By the time the blizzard winds down on Monday, the New York City area will be buried under 8 to 16 inches. Snow totals will also exceed a foot northward from New York City to Boston to Portland to Bangor.

    Rain mixing in should limit snow totals to under a foot southeast of Boston.

    Farther south, Philadelphia and Dover can expect a total of 6 to 12 inches.

    The snow, however, will be difficult to accurately measure. Strong winds will significantly blow and drift the snow with an all-out blizzard unfolding from Philadelphia northward.

    Travel for motorists will become extremely treacherous and nearly impossible where the blizzard ensues. Airline passengers are sure to face numerous flight cancelations.
