SEE MAP: http://www.midatlanticweather.com/Images/01_22_2005_final.gif for my First Guess!
Size of Storm: Areas in northeast could easily see a lot more if back lash from coastal gets involved. Also, adjustments could occur if system happens to dig more.
When: Saturday morning and overnight, though mostly over by midnight, except Northeast. Will be very cold and windy.
How Much: My last thoughts http://www.midatlanticweather.com/Images/01_22_2005_final.gif
- There are models showing a very substantial event in areas I am being somewhat conservative on.
- Location of upper features are still not totally clear, and there could be a serious dry slot limiting snow in Northwester VA! Some people may really be surprised at smaller amounts than expected!
All for now!
