Winter Storm Update

Winter Storm  March 2017

If you thought it was this snow storm was a false alarm when you woke up to wet roads and minimal snows, you're out of luck. It still looks like we are in for significant snowfall around the Phillly area today with the National Weather Service forecasting 8-12 inches along the i95 corridor, with heaviest snowfall this afternoon. Check out their official word below. Oh yeah, for those of you keeping track, this snow event has been dubbed 'Toby'.

A couple of other notes...

Radio 104.5 World Headquarters in Bala Cynwyd is closed today (for prize pickup). But, we'll still be here with music and updates for your snow day.

The City of Philadelphia declares snow emergency beginning at 9 a.m. This means several things, including a reminder that  parking will be prohibited along designated snow emergency routes at this time. Get full details HERE
