NBC Philadelphia reports Philadelphia could get hit by yet another big snowstorm this week: "The worst-case scenario would be blizzard conditions over parts of our area later Thursday and Thursday night. The intense storm could lead to power outages due to the heavy wet snow sticking to trees and power lines. What could go wrong (or right, depending on how you look at it)? The low could be slow to intensify; the low track could be more southeast to northwest; or the low could even move so close to our area that it brings in warmer air, changing snow to rain. The last storm with a similar setup was in March 2001. In that case, one to two feet were predicted in our area. We ended up with one to two inches (Long Island got a foot and New England two feet). With that in mind, it would be too early (Tuesday afternoon) to responsibly predict specific snow amounts (that will come Wednesday). But it is important to be aware of the potential of this storm."
