While there's still a chance for a little bit more snow in Philadelphia before 4 p.m. according to the National Weather Service, the worst of the storm has passed.
In Rittenhouse Square NBC10 measured 6 inches of snow, but there were only 4 inches of snow in South Philly. Totals were even lower in locales further west like Coatesville, which only saw 3 inches.
Accumulation was greatest along the Jersey Shore, where the storm was most severe. Northfield, which is outside of Atlantic City, and Avalon in Cape May County both got 15 inches.
The National Weather Service confirmed that coastal regions of New Jersey experienced a blizzard this weekend. A blizzard is defined as three or more hours with less than a quarter mile of visibility due to snowfall.
We have confirmed that at least coastal portions of the area experienced a blizzard last night and this morning. Analysis for inland areas and to determine more exact timing and duration information will take more time to conduct. #NJwx #DEwx pic.twitter.com/CiQjEHoQqV— NWS Mount Holly (@NWS_MountHolly) January 29, 2022
