The snowstorm in the Philadelphia region is underway and it should bring a significant amount of snow to parts of the area.

Let's get right to it. Predicted snow totals will vary throughout the area and more snow should fall to the north and east:

Area Predicted Snowfall
Cape May, Dover, Lancaster, Reading, Wilmington 2 to 4 inches
Philadelphia, immediate Pa. suburbs, Allentown, Atlantic City, Mt. Pocono, Western South Jersey 3 to 6 inches
Easternmost Pa., parts of South Jersey 4 to 8 inches
Trenton, Central Jersey 6 to 10 inches

Snow should start tapering off from the southwest to northeast between 3 and 6 a.m.

Snow began piling up throughout the Tri-State region Tuesday night as snow plows hit area roads. The heaviest accumulation began around 9 p.m. as a snow emergency went into effect in Philly.

The area won't get the huge Category 5 (crippling) storm that it got during Christmas weekend.

A Category 4 (major) storm should hit the Northern half of New Jersey, including Burlington and Mercer Counties.

A Category 3 (significant) storm will hit the Philadelphia area.

A Category 2 (nuisance) storm will hit west of Philadelphia, including parts of Delaware and South Jersey.

Heaviest Accumulations 9 p.m. to 3 a.m.
Snow Tapers Off 3 to 6 a.m.
