SIGNIFICANT SNOWSTORM ON TRACK FOR THIS WEEKEND
What: All models are showing what should become a significant snow storm for the Mid Atlantic Region this weekend.
When: Starting overnight Friday in the southwestern regions and spreading over the northern areas by late afternoon Saturday
How Much: Well, ranges in precip come in between 3-5” for a large area with some higher spots likely seeing 4-8”. It does appear that there will be a sharp cut off on the western edge so the mountains and westward may really miss the heavier snows as well as the immediate piedmont areas of Western Maryland and
I-95 areas and about 30 miles either side of it may be the jackpot areas until you get just south of Richmond where you should pull the rain/snow line back west to western North Carolina.
Western and north of areas from Leesburg down to
This will be fine tuned.
- True model Consensus is not there yet.
- Amounts will be hard to determine until the models handle some of the phasing of the systems better
- Could see a further north and west pull of warm air if the system gets stronger, thus putting I-95 corridor in jeopardy of a changeover
- There is also the possibility the storm stays further South and East which would limit Northern and Western area snows.. As noted, there could be a sharp cut off in snow to the west.
All for now!
