(NEWSER– Move over, polar vortex: The Northeast is prepping for a major snowstorm—what could be Washington, DC's biggest in three years. A look at what the region faces today:

  • Philadelphia: The Inquirer says a "bombogenesis" is coming this afternoon. What's that? "A rapidly intensifying storm." The city and surrounding areas, including parts of New Jersey and Delaware, are expecting 7 to 11 inches of snow. As almost everywhere else is reporting, "dangerous cold" is also expected.
  • New York: Could see its biggest storm of the season so far, with 8 to 14 inches of snow expected, the New York Times reports. Temperatures are expected to drop into the single digits tonight; add in the wind and it'll feel like 10 below. The storm is expected to pass by tomorrow morning, though freezing temperatures won't break until ... Monday.
