12/1 DC/MD/VA Weather Outlook

Ok.. Winter is here! We are really in a situation the next several days and All I can say is.. I have no idea what to think!

Summary:  It is Winter! We will see a light overrunning system this weekend and then a potential bigger storm Monday/Tuesday. The situation many are hoping for (snow lovers that is!) is a  50/50 low and blocking up in Canada which will spill cold air down east of eth Mountains. When the blocking is on the models, many areas have decent snow, if it is gone.. rain. GUT call will be a western suburbs storm next week, but it has potential to be bigger and better for areas mainly I-95 and west.. The first system this Saturday night into Sunday could drop 1-4 inches in some areas. This would be the northern areas of Virginia. At this point lets say Western Loudoun, Frederick areas. A switch to rain Sunday for most lower elevation areas.
The bigger system will come Monday and Tuesday. I am thinking cold rain with some initial mix for areas south and east of a Charlottesville to Dulles to West of Baltimore. A longer period of snow west of that area with 1 inch close to it with up to 4inches in the Mountains and higher terrain.
The next storm is really up in the air. I would say the same areas have the best bet for a big snowstorm, but the areas could really go further west without any blocking in Canada!
Tropics:  Epsilon will hopefully be the last storm of the Season. Almost hit hurricane status yesterday but has weakened today. The season officially ended yesterday.
