I'm there. It's been snowing solidly for a couple of hours now. Flakes are gigantic.
Less than an inch of snow though, and temp is just about to cross from 32 to 34. We're going to get rain and I'm going to cry.

2.4 inches now!  Wasn't even sure we'd get that much.  Mod to heavy snow.  Roads are a mess.  30.5F, but looks like the sleet isn't too far away now.

Nice! That's where I grew up - WTHS Class of 80.  Hated being on the wrong side of the rain/snow line growing up, relative to Philly and NW suburbs, but good to see it's overperforming for you already, as you're on the NWS ~1" line.

5 miles east of cc Philadelphia in Camden County NJ. 30 degrees, borderline heavy, transitioned to huge aggregates, wind dropped a bit. 2 inches down. Peaceful. Sleet line is close.

How much you got?. I measured around 5 inches just now. An impressive 1.5 inches within the past 45 min.

Haven't measured recently but I'd guess close to 3.5 or 4"...

I’m in overbrook park about 5 min from lower Merion township on city ave and this is some of the heaviest snow I’ve seen in quite a while, huge half dollar/silver dollar sized flakes right now. 
 

im fearing the eventual ping of sleet but loving this right now while it lasts. 
 

what a crap show of an evening commute tho, hope everyone can get home safely

Up to an inch here. Haven’t seen much of the heavy rates yet.

That's incredible and you are well south, the WAA thumps is taking forever to make progress which is making me nervous because once it sleets its done

Believe me, the problem for you and I won't be sleet. It's gonna be precip shutting off with that dry slot in VA racing NE already.

Still heavy snow here, heavier radar returns making their way north into Berks.

Finally getting under the pinks and SN+.  Temp holding at 28 with dp 27 and vis down to about 1/4 mile with fog and heavier snow. Lots of pancake flakes in with the larger flakes and wind has really picked up. Up to 2.5" with some blowing (but the spot where I have the board is a bit more protected).

I think I'm gonna underperform here. Maybe 6-8". But definitely not flurries right now. Flakes aren't massive, but still coming down heavy.
