Two Feet Or More…Really?
The latest from the weather geeks at FootsForecast are calling for an unprecedented storm with a minimum of 12″ to 18″; but they seem to be calling for in excess of 24″. Here are the two scenarios they are proposing:
SCENARIO A Snow arrives mid-morning Friday in southwest Virginia, and by noon along the I-95 corridor, significantly impacting the evening commute. By Saturday afternoon, a widespread 12-26″ of snow from Washington to New York City with higher amounts further inland, ending by Sunday morning. Some mixing may occur along I-95. Areas of the eastern shore and Virginia tidewater see up to 6″
SCENARIO B Snow arrives Friday mid-afternoon across the region, and the evening commute along I-95 is problematic. Mixing of sleet occurs only in lower southern Maryland and along the eastern shore. By Saturday afternoon, snow amounts range 18-26″ across the I-95 corridor of Baltimore-Washington and southern New Jersey, with isolated higher amounts across the entire affected area.
