Winter Storm Watch Tuesday

A Clipper will be diving down from the Midwest and intensify as it heads off the Mid-Atlantic coast, giving us a good chance of getting the biggest snowfall of the season so far.   Enjoy this mild Monday afternoon skies will be partly cloudy and highs in the mid to upper 50s.  Cloudy skies tonight and then the snow arrives tomorrow morning.  The drive in should be fine, but the commute home could be terrible with many school cancellations expected. Temperatures will be cold to start, so all that falls will accumulate quickly.  It will be a light fluffy snow, with a high snow/liquid ratio. Some blowing snow can be expected as well. Temperatures will slowly be falling all day on Tuesday and the wind chill index will range from 5-15 degrees much of the day.  This cold blast will rival the one that made "The Polar Vortex" a common name, but it will last longer.  We stay cold the rest of the week.  For more specific details on snowfall totals and timing, check out the latest blog here.
