It will produce periods of heavy precipitation. All locations along and west of the Interstate 95 corridor are vulnerable to heavy snow, with the greatest uncertainty within 20 miles east of Interstate 95.

Highest snow accumulations will be in the hilly areas. Unnecessary travel is not recommended today. Thereafter, communities will need tonight and Thursday morning to dig out.
