A developing low-pressure system began to show signs of life at 4 p.m., capturing energy from the Atlantic Ocean as it stepped off the North Carolina coast.

Heavy snow should begin to climb up the East Coast in the evening and remain heavy until the overnight hours, the National Weather Service said.

Forecasters are still calling for a 6-inch snowfall along the coastal areas of New Jersey during the overnight hours. One-inch snowfall rates are still possible.

Philadelphia Mayor Michael Nutter declared a limited state of emergency in his city, and New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie has declared a state of emergency in the Garden State.

“This is a very serious storm,” Nutter said at a 4:30 p.m. news conference called to discuss the city’s response to the changing conditions.
