A major storm will move today from the western panhandle region of Florida to the Carolina coastline by tonight and snow on its northern edge will make it about as far north as the DC metro region. The gradient of snow accumulation will be very sharp on the northern side of the storm with dramatic increases from north-to-south. A light accumulation of a dusting to an inch is possible later today in the District with a couple inches possible in the region from Culpeper, VA to Waldorf, MD. To the south of there, 6-10 inches of snow can fall later today in Charlottesville, VA and up to a foot or so is possible in the Richmond, VA area. The bullseye region for this major winter storm in terms of snow accumulations will be southern Virginia and western/central North Carolina where 1-2 feet can take place by tomorrow. The storm slowly pulls away from the Carolina coastline on Monday.
