My Final Call: Issued Tuesday at 7:30 PM

Update: Thursday 7:30 AM:

So far 9.5" of snow here in LYH VA. We mixed with and changed to IP/ZR between 3:00 and 6:30 AM. Now back to light accumulating snow.

I expect an additional 2"-4" of snow accumulation here today. The u/l low will cause a nice period of snow especially later this morning into mid/late afternoon hours. The sleet has compacted my snow on the ground from overnight hours. Temp is 27 F.

.............................................................................

SIGNIFICANT/MAJOR SNOWSTORM ON THE WAY FOR THE THE MID-ATLANTIC STATES !!!

For Virginia, snow will move in during the mid and late afternoon hours over ROA/LYH/RIC then further north into Northern VA by early evening.
Snow will fall moderate to heavy at times for Wednesday night into Thursday morning.

I'm forcasting the heaviest snow to fall from LYH to CHO to near Winchester VA, and points about 30 to 50 miles along and east of Rt 29. These areas will see a general 12"-16" of snowfall, when all is said and done by later Thursday afternoon.

Further west towards ROA and points along and just west of the Blue Ridge Mountains, a gereral 8"-14" can be expected.

 
RIC VA will likely mix with some sleet for several hours, which will hold accumulations down to 6"-10".
 
For SE VA 2"-6" can be expected with the lower amounts towards the coast.

LYH, VA .... 12"-16"
ROA, VA ......10"-14"
CHO, VA ......12"-16"
RIC, VA ........6"-10"

DCA and BWI ..... 8"-12"

For THE DELAWARE VALLEY REGION:

SE PA can expect a general 10"-16" All snow, with some mixed Sleet towards the PHL area

For PHL, Northern DE / Interior Southern and Central NJ:
6"-10" can be expected with snow mixing with Sleet and Rain for several hours.

Central DE near DOV to MIV, NJ and near Hammonton and Mays Landing NJ.
4"-7" can be expected with Sleet and Rain for several hours

Southern DE to Coastal Southern NJ: 2"-4" Mixed snow and sleet changes over to Rain for several hours.

For Interior Central/Northern NJ, including NYC:  A general 6"-12" can be expected.
 
The Central NJ Coast: 4"-9"

Take Care,
Ruggie
