Updated 5:00 PM ET – 2/3/2014 for Tuesday/Wednesday Ice Threats
As models continue to roll in I see a chance that a larger area could see more ice… but as of now, I would bank on the typical Cold Air Damming locations of the Piedmont and valleys right up to the mountains seeing at least ice storm criteria (0.25″ of ice).
- The models always miss the extent of Cold Air and how long it will last
- There is a lot of water with this system, so freezing will be somewhat minimized by the heavy nature of the rain
- The current watches will be expanded to include areas north of Charlottesville up into Loudoun and Maybe Faquier county VA
