Winter Storm Watch for the listening area now including southern Maryland. This watch is for Tuesday PM through Wednesday PM. The watch area has a chance of accumulating snow with some possible heavy accumulating west of the Blue Ridge Mountains.
Precip will begin to reach the D.C. area Tuesday night. Mostly snow with some rain mixed in out towards the Shenandoah Valley- mostly rain with some snow mixed in around the DC region. The areas that will see rain/snow mix will make for some tricky snow totals forecasting—ie: DC area. Out towards the Valley, it looks as if snow remains pretty consistent precip type through the duration of the event. Still a lot of uncertainty concerning snow totals but it looks like Shenandoah Valley and Eastern Panhandle of WV will see the highest in terms of totals. It will also be fairly windy during the event and on Thursday during the day as well so some power outages will be unfortunately widespread.
Everything out by late Wednesday night into early hours of Thursday morning. Sunshine moves back in for Friday/Saturday.
