It was cold in the Eastern US in February!
How cold was February, compared to most February's? It was the coldest on record in parts of the South (and much of eastern US). Just look at these rankings, for various cities. If it shows a (1), then your town just had it's coldest February on record.
Watches are up for Northern VA/MD/DC/WV - More to come!
Moderate to significant snow storm looking more likely northern half of VA/ MD... 4 to 8" seems likely Northern 1/3rd of VA with as much as 10"+ in some spots... Starting overnight Wednesday Night.. Cold Thursday and Friday....
Current National Weather Service projections for snow for upcoming system.
UPDATE: Right now this is what the NWS has for the next 72 hours. With heaviest axis from Kentucky to SE Massachusetts. This can and will obviously change. I don't necessarily agree with all of this but it's something to get your mind going on how this storm will impact you Thursday!
Now that I am pretty convinced snow is coming, how much needs to be figured out. I expect to do a map tomorrow.
Something to try Thursday!

Congrats to Ann Hilton Fisher! Her spectacular sun halo photo over a snow covered Forest Park taken during February 2015 is the Photo of the Week! Thanks to everyone who shared photos with us and voted in the contest this week. — in Forest Park, IL, United States.
Wintry mix tomorrow into tomorrow evening! Sleet and freezing rain could be on tap again for Northern VA and MD, especially in the valleys and foothills. The temps SHOULD rise tomorrow Night and temps in the 40s and 50s look likely Wednesday. Areas in Southern VA and NC will likely see 60s! All of VA and down into NC should eventually see a mix to sleet and snow Thursday so that is some changeable weather!
WEDNESDAY NIGHT/THURSDAY SNOW looking more likely for Maryland and The Northern half of VA.. As well as WV where they could see 12"+! Just because it looks more likely DOES NOT MEAN it is a lock. Figuring out exactly who gets the stripe of snow and how much where is still something to figure out over the next few days!
