What else should we know? Don't forget about the winds. High, perhaps damaging winds, will howl across south Jersey, all of Delaware and eastern Virginia and Maryland as the snow falls.
Wind gusts over 40 or even 50 mph are possible especially right along the coast.
There is some potential that blizzard criteria will be met at times.
Blizzard warnings have been issued for parts of south Jersey and the state of Delaware.
Winds will also be gusty around southeastern Pennsylvania, Manhattan, Long Island and coastal southern New England.
During Sunday (especially the morning hours), wind chills throughout the Northeast and parts of the Mid-Atlantic will be brutal - largely in the single digits and teens. Some areas may dip below zero especially interior sections of the Northeast.
What about New York City? Difficult forecast. NYC is near the cutoff from where some locations may receive a big snowfall versus locations that may not receive any snow at all. Here is their forecast in narrative format.
