Snow and Ice: Shifting Northward

Today’s winter storm outlook takes the area of highest accumulations from the Shenandoah Valley (as mentioned yesterday) northward to Hagerstown, MD, the Cumberland Gap and into south-central Pennsylvania. This, by the way, is home to the Catoctin Mountains and Camp David, the Presidential Retreat (doubtful that Marine One will attempt the trip this weekend).

With the snow moving a bit farther north, it now looks like it will be a freezing rain and rain event for southern Virginia and western North Carolina. Ice accumulations could be as much as 1/4 inch, while it’s possible 18 inches of snow could fall along the Maryland/Pennsylvania border.

Long-range, another winter storm system is setting up for the middle of next week, while in the North Pacific storms continue to line up and take aim at the U.S. West Coast.
