Ice on its way


With the evening has come a steady sinking of the dew point. At my house I am own to 9 degree dew points! That is sufficient to cause serious evaporational cooling and sleet! I suspect this will be the first precipitation type here in Northern VA. As expected, Far NW areas have been placed under a Winter Storm warning and the winter Weather advisoury stretches south and southwestward.

Expecting this to still be an elevated surface event, except shaded regions. Also, expectin snow and sleet mix near the PA border.

All in all, NWS is on target this time for Northern VA! Way to go!

South of Fredericksburg will not see much

Draw a line from Galax VA to Roanoke to Charlottesville and go up the mountains and you will see a mix. From Charlottesville up to Dulles and west, it will be more of a signficant mix. Go to the immediate Piedmont of Virginia from West of Charlottesville up to Hagerstown and up in to PA and I could see enough ice for warning status!

All I have!
