The storm which was original expected to hit on Christmas has turned into a unexpected monster off as it headed toward the Eastern seaboard. This storm is bringing parts of Georgia its first Christmas day snow fall in over 100 years.

The storm which some forecasters believe will become a blizzard will bring winds of nearly 40 m.p.h. to the area.

Meteorologist predict the snow will start light in the morning hours and get heavier as the day progresses and ending in the early hours of Monday morning.

The local National Weather Service office in Mount Holly, NJ has issued a Winter Weather Warning and issued a warning to drivers to stay off the roads during the impending storm.

Philadelphia media outlet FOX 29 reported Friday night that snow accumulations of a dusting to an inch are to be expected, FOX 29 has since changed their forecast.
