The peak snow accumulations will occur from the middle of the day Saturday into Saturday evening. Much of the country, particularly the East Coast, will see a wet winter -- with more snow than usual. "Total snow accumulations of 6 inches of more are possible in the most persistent lake snows".

Up to 8 inches has been measured in southern DE, and the National Weather Service says that some localized bands of heavy snow could bump up totals elsewhere. Washington, D.C., can expect one to three inches, while the rest of the Northeast, from eastern Pennsylvania, central to northern New Jersey, and NY to ME will likely see three to five inches this weekend.
