Discussion

Confidence continues to grow for a major - and perhaps crippling storm - for the Mid-Atlantic region at the end of the week and weekend. It looks like it'll be a high-impact and long-lasting storm that has the potential to dump 1-2 feet of snow on the I-95 corridor region from DC-to-Philly-to-New York City. It is entirely possible that somewhere in the Mid-Atlantic region there will be 30+ inches of snow accumulation from this upcoming system. Numerous overnight computer forecast models support the idea of a major winter storm for the Mid-Atlantic region including the European which had a "southern spasm" yesterday, but "corrected" itself in its latest run back to a more "northwest" storm track and positioning of the zone of heaviest snowfall. The timing has changed a bit to a slightly later starting time - likely mid-day to early afternoon on Friday in the DC metro region. This storm is likely to include some serious blowing and drifting, coastal flooding and beach erosion and perhaps there will even be some thunder snow and lightning. Wind gusts could reach 70 mph at coastal locations later Saturday and 50 mph at inland areas. There is a chance for a changeover to or a mixing with rain and/or sleet for awhile during this storm; especially, to the south and east of the big cities. Stay tuned for updates.
