    New snowfall predictions as of 1 p.m. Thursday, Feb. 25, 2010 after a major change in the forecast downgraded the storm for our area.

    Hold everything.

    The newest weather data shows we will dodge the worst of the snowfall in the Philadelphia area -- this will no longer be a "crippling" storm for us, but it is still considered a significant snowstorm.

    North of us -- especially up in the New York area -- is where the heaviest snowfall will occur.

    We will still have limited periods of heavy snow.
