My Final Call
Issued: 8:00 PM Saturday 03/01/14
For: The M/A States:
Snow Event: Sunday Night into Monday Evening !
Overall trends today continued south
and colder with our snow threat for Sunday night into Monday. This now puts much
of Central and Northern VA and into MD and The Delaware Valley for the heaviest snowfall amounts. Most of these areas will see from 8" to as much as 14" (See Snowfall Map)
The Heaviest snow will fall during Monday into Monday Evening, as our surface low and u/l energy slide into the Carolinas, then ENE off the Coast. This storm system will slide along the Arctic front and with it comes plenty of moisture. Snow will fall Moderate to heavy at times during Monday across much of VA/MD/SE PA/DE and Central and Southern NJ ! Areas further north towards NYC will see considerably less snow with only 2"-4" there.
For ROA / LYH / RIC, VA Areas !
I've increased snowfall amounts further south into VA, from ROA to LYH to RIC, VA and points
just north into parts of Central VA, where 4"-8" amounts can be expected. I'm most confident with 4"-6" for LYH /ROA /RIC VA, but up to 8" is possible, especially just to the north of these cities. Rain during later Sunday night will mix with and change to Sleet and Snow during Monday morning from NW to SE. Most areas will see snow during Monday afternoon and into the early evening hours. Snow could be moderate to heavy at times. Temps drop quickly into the 20's during the afternoon hours and into the teens at night.
For much of
Central/Northern VA, a solid 8"-12"
can be expected, this including the DCA area. Some areas could see upto 14" just N and W of DCA and BWI, MD and into Central/NE MD.
For my friends further north: 8"-12"
with a few spots seeing near 14" for much of MD and including The Delaware Valley Region.
