Snow and 'Wintry Mix' Predicted as Blizzard Bears Down on Northeast

Doylestown could get snow and/or a wintry mix on Friday as a big winter storm heads for New England.

A "potentially historic" winter storm is headed for the northeast and Bucks County is expected to be on the southern edge of it.

Forecasts are still uncertain for the storm The Weather Channel has dubbed "Nemo," but weather experts are growing more certain that it is indeed on its way.

Wednesday afternoon, the National Weather Service issued a "Hazardous Weather Outlook" for southeast Pennsylvania. 

The forecast for the Doylestown area as of 7 p.m. Thursday:

"A strong coastal storm is expected to affect the area Friday. A period of a wintry mix is possible, expected early Friday morning before changing to rain during the day. The rain will likely change back to snow Friday night. Some accumulation is possible. Gusty winds are also likely Friday into Friday night."

New England, though, appears to be in the bull's eye of the storm.

The Weather Service issued a blizzard watch for the Boston-to-Providence corridor, predicting 1 to 2 feet of snow.

Weather Channel host Dr. Greg Postel said forecasters would continue to fine-tune their predictions as the storm moves closer.

"Regardless, we're still looking at a big-time snow event" for New England, Postel said in an update on weather.com.
