Cold and Snow – HEAVY RAINS possible! #MidAtlWx


The cold is no joke today! Just be careful! Remember others that could be exposed to cold and make sure they are taken care of!

The snow prospects continue to lessen. I have made a preliminary map but this may be too high! The storm is able to quickly bring in warmer air. Some valleys may deal with icing and I may be putting an icing map later! Most of what I show could be washed away by HEAVY rains Tuesday!

Low Confidence in this first Guess. Will likely have to adjust!

Icing is also a concern. Here is the outlook by the Weather Prediction Center for at least a tenth of an inch of ice:Heavy rains look to follow and there are serious concerns as there is snowpack out there still in the colder higher areas.

This amount of rain has some flood concerns. Weather Prediction center is watching this as well:
ExcessRainsWe will see if this is an issue as we approach the time.

I will update as I can.

Long term looks like a warming trend starting next weekend. This was delayed due to the coming storm.

Super long outlooks show a chance for some colder air towards the end of the month.

All for now!
