My Call for LYH, VA and The Delaware Valley. Sunday into Monday Night: Late Season Snow Event !

3:45 PM Update !
Mod to Hvy snow to continue into early this evening with possible Thundersnow in ROA and to near LYH VA areas. With over 3" on the ground already Radar showing large area of HVY snow with possible convective activity that could produce THUNDERSNOW later this afternoon into early this evening.
Additional snow will fall tonight at varying intensity. I'm now thinking 4"-8" of snow is likely for ROA/LYH areas into early Monday AM before ending ! We could see a break in the action for a few hours this evening, then snow will redevelop as second area of moisture and low pressure to our west merges with our developing coastal storm.
For The Delaware Valley a general 3"-6" can be expected later tonight into Monday with a few spots seeing 7" or even 8". Best chances for highest amounts ....... Northern DE and Interior SJ.

My Call for LYH, VA: Including surrounding Counties of Bedford, Amherst, and Campbell.

I'm forecasting a solid 2"-4" of snow and Sleet accumulations, this also includes ROA and Bedford VA, with a few isolated spots above 1,500 ft seeing 6" amounts. .

A mix of rain and sleet will overspread the region during this morning, and change to wet snow and sleet during the afternoon. Temps will remain in the mid 30's. Any snow/sleet accumulations during the day will be under 1".

Tonight: Accumulating Wet Snow will fall Moderate to heavy at times, especially between 7:00 PM and 2:00 AM tonight, as temps drop to near 30. Most snow will accumulate during the Sunday night and early Monday morning.

Light snow can be expected during the morning hours on Monday before tapering off to occassional mixed precip and rain during the afternoon. Highs on Monday in the upper 30's to lower 40's. Total snow accumulations of 2"-4" with some 6" amounts by Monday morning.

For my friends up home in the Delaware Valley:
Expect a general 2"-5" of snow accumulation, this includes PHL, SE PA, Much of Central/Northern DE, and Southern and Central NJ. A nice thump of snow will fall later tonight into Monday morning, then mixed precip and rain towards the coast during the afternoon. This will likely changing back to some snow Monday night before ending after midnight.

Take Care,
