A Winter Storm WARNING for Snow means severe winter weather will make travel very hazardous or impossible.

Moderate snow will continue into the early morning hours. The advisories are in effect from 6 p.m. Saturday to 6 p.m. Sunday.

Meteorologists began nudging up earlier predictions of 2 inches to 4 inches of snowfall Saturday morning, as some weather forecasting models began suggesting a chance for perhaps a foot or more of snowfall. Major cities such as Indianapolis, Cincinnati and St. Louis have been told to prepare for "significant snowfall" - at least 7 inches in some neighborhoods. Snowfall totals will be a little more south of St. Joseph towards Kansas City and east towards Chillicothe where five to seven inches is expected.

Philadelphia and Pittsburgh are only likely to see about 1 to 3 inches of snow.

Areas further to the south will get the most snow, with parts of South Jersey and northern DE seeing as much as 3-5 inches.
