    Snowy DC to NYC

    Monday 10 a.m.

    The storm that brought more than a foot of snow to St. Louis yesterday is affecting areas from Virginia to near New York City today. Washington, D.C., had their first inch of snow in more than two years; many suburbs had 3-4 inches. At midmorning, the snow was falling an inch an hour between York and Philadelphia. The snow's advance northward through New Jersey has been much slower than was the case earlier today in Pennsylvania. We expect just wet streets for New York City from the snowfall... though higher amounts may show up again on central eastern Long Island. We always need to be careful with the forecast at this stage because the offshore storm will be strengthening.
