Cold and Rainy- Mild and rainy to come!

The snow chance for anyone out of the higher elevations has really subsided. We look raw and cold the next several days with rain a good bet. Today, rain with possibly some snow or sleet at onset and highs upper 30s for the north with just cold and rain with highs in the mid to upper 40s south. In NC there may be some thunderstorms as well. Rain will taper off this evening. Tonight and tomorrow continue cool/cold with drizzle. More cold rain for Tomorrow night into Friday. Higher elevations may still see some snow, but rain is going to be the main event.

More later on the milder temps, but unsettled wetness into next week.

All for now!

Sun then clouds, rain, cool, and snow?!

We have an easy forecast today with sunny skies temps should top out in the low 50s north and lower 60s in NC. Clouds will increase overnight and bring Precip tomorrow! This could be some light snow in the higher elevations and even a rain/snow mix of i-95 and west from Frefericksburg north to Baltimore. This looks like a light event so only the highest elevations should see real accumulations from this and I would think 1 to 3″ would be about it.

I am going to forego a later week specific forecast as I will be wrong. As of now the mountain areas of VA, NC, MD and then a good part of PA could get a good sized snow storm. It is *POSSIBLE* that snow may make it into the immediate Piedmont and even a little further east in far Northern VA and MD. This may be a very close call for i-95 and west for MD and North VA but I would count on rain now and check back.

All for now.

Where will the snow fly?

INITIAL THOUGHTs! Tomorrow night snow will be heaviest across the state in a line from Charlottesville to Fredericksburg to Salisbury, Md line. Accumulations 1 to 3 inches seems possible 30 miles either side of that line, but along the coast just a coating to an inch. North of that area up to the middle part of Maryland, a coating to 1 inch seems more likely with some seeing as much as 2″ in the southern part of this area. In Southern part of the Appalachian Mts from Afton down SW to Tazewell and 25 miles either side of this 2 to 4 inches with some 6 inch amounts in higher elevations seems likely.

Few selected spots Charlottesville; 2 inches Fredericksburg: 2 inches Washington DC/Dulles: 1 inch Spotsylvania: 2 inches Ashland: trace to an inch Salisbury: 1 inch Richmond: trace Sunday morning

More to come!
