Snowfall will be the strongest late Monday morning into Monday afternoon. FOX 29's Scott Williams says the heaviest banding is expected north and west of the city during the noon hours.
Snow intensity will begin to taper off Monday night and by Tuesday a few leftover snow showers or flurries will linger as the storm pulls away.
The FOX 29 Weather Authority is expecting double-digit snowfall totals for counties north and west of Philadelphia. The brunt of the storm expected to drop 10-15 inches in areas like Berks, Lehigh and Bucks counties.
