Good Afternoon, taking a look at the forecast for the next three days. A look at the rest of today, it's going to be mainly quiet and very cold. Cold high pressure remains in control of the Ohio Valley and much of the area will remain dry. There could be some lake effect snow showers over the lake favored areas of Lake Michigan and from Cleveland to Syracuse. Much further south, a strong storm system will begin to take shape and will impact weather up and down the east coast. Look ahead to Wednesday, a cold front will bring snow chances for the northern sections of the Ohio Valley, while a strong area of low pressure will continue to develop and move towards the Atlantic Ocean. The result will be heavy snowfall from Dover to near Wilmington, and snowfall further inland as far west as DC, Richmond, and Raleigh. A mix of rain, sleet, snow, and freezing rain possible for the South Carolina and northern Georgia coast, with rainfall inland from there. On Thursday, strong area of low pressure will be off the Virginia coast and heavy snowfall will be pushed northward from Boston to the Canadian border. Cold front will move into Virginia, and lake effect snow will fall across northern Indiana to northwest Ohio and from Cleveland to Syracuse. High pressure centered in southeast Minnesota will filter in another reinforcing shot of colder air to the region.
As far as snowfall totals through 4 pm Thursday, first for the Ohio Valley region, heaviest snowfall totals will be across far northern Indiana and just away from Lake Erie in northeast Ohio, where 3 to 6 inches of snow could fall. Lesser amounts for areas south, where an inch or less is possible for much of the region. For Virginia, heaviest could fall in eastern Virginia from the Eastern Shore to Virginia Beach and points west as far as Williamsburg and the Northern Neck where 6 to 8 inches of snow could fall, lesser amounts to the west, with 3 to 6 inches possible in the Richmond area, and 1 to 2 inches possible in the DC area and west of Richmond. Snowfall in this area is still highly subject to change depending on the ultimate track of the low. We will have further updates on the potential snowfall for eastern Virginia on the Facebook page.
Thoughts on major weather events, severe weather events, and/or changes to the company.
