NBC Philadelphia reports that a blizzard warning has already been issued in advance of the massive snowstorm expected to hit the mid-Atlantic tonight. "A Blizzard Warning was issued for Delaware beaches, and Coastal South Jersey. Towns including Dover, Del., Rehoboth Beach, Cape May, Long Beach Island, Millville and Atlantic City were included in the warning that was set to begin at 4 p.m. Friday and last through 7 p.m. Saturday. The seasonal trend of "backward snowstorms" looks like it should continue, with areas south of Philadelphia getting more snow than northern areas. But even the Philadelphia area and northern and western suburbs will be seeing a LOT of snow.  The snow should move in between 4 and 7 p.m. Friday, with the heaviest snow falling from 10 at night until 8 the next morning. During that period, snow could be accumulating an inch an hour or more in the hardest hit areas."
