Snow Information --- Monday, February 18, 2019 07:51 AM
Latest 00Z/18 suite of models are in pretty good agreement with a significant storm system ejecting NE from the Gulf of Mexico. Tue night and tracking through the Tennessee - Ohio Valley as a strong high pressure lingers over the NE, slowly retreating ENE into New England. It will be initially rather cold Tue night/Wed morning, this pattern favors the Piedmont and northern sections of the forecast area for snow/mixed precipitation, while SE portions will tend to quickly change to all rain Wed morning. Exact position and strength of the high will be key in how long cold air can stay in place. The early forecast is for snow/ice accumulations of 3 to 4 inches of snow in the NW (Fluvanna/Louisa/Caroline) with less than one inch over far southern/SE VA and NE NC.
Typical battle zone Wed morning will likely be across metro Richmond where 1-2 inches of snow is forecast before mixing with sleet and then changing to rain. Rather warm mid-level suggest period for all snow will be limited to early Wed AM, then transitioning to sleet and potentially some freezing rain in areas that can remain at or below 32F through midday/early afternoon.
Weather Underground has a forecast of 1 to 3 inches.
