Lord Have Mercy....please?
« on: March 02, 2014, 06:27:19 PM »

ACCUWEATHER - A storm that will bring major disruptions of travel and daily activities to much of the nation will hit Washington, D.C., with heavy snow and a wintry mix Sunday night and Monday.

The storm is likely to bring up to a foot of snow with some locally higher amounts possible in the heaviest bands of snow.

That amount of snow may be difficult to shovel, especially with the snow being preceded by a layer of ice.

Lengthy flight delays and many cancelations are expected during and well ahead of the storm, since it will move from west to east across the nation this weekend.

One or two rain showers will occur Sunday afternoon, ahead of the main storm.

The main storm could bring very heavy precipitation rates Sunday night and Monday. Snowfall rates can reach or surpass 2 inches per hour in some locations. Such intense snowfall can overwhelm shoveling and plowing operations, as well as strand motorists.

Motorists traveling on on area interstates should expect very slippery conditions with the potential for road closures in some locations. Conditions will be poor for travel throughout the mid-Atlantic, even down to Raleigh, N.C., on Monday.

More cold weather will follow the storm Tuesday and Wednesday.

This is the first winter I've experienced like this in my 42 years living in the Washington region.   It's more like you'd get in a mild Buffalo, NY winter.

In Buffalo, they usually get at least one snowfall of 4 feet or more...otherwise, I can't recall snow cover on the ground this frequently.

Global warming my butt.   :laugh:

The first wave came through and nothing stuck.  We'll see what kind of punch the back end packs tonight.

Snow and ice spread into the Northeast during the early morning hours on Monday as colder air rushed down from the north, meeting up with moisture moving in from the west.

The storm will cause major air and traffic disruptions on Monday, as many of the largest hubs in the mid-Atlantic will be in or near the path of the storm.

The heaviest snow--with amounts of 6 inches or so--will unfold from the West Virginia mountains to northern and central Virginia to extreme southern New Jersey.

This includes Washington, D.C., Harrisonburg, Va., Dover, Del., and Atlantic City, N.J.

The majority of the snow will fall during the morning and early afternoon hours on Monday. By Monday evening, a sprawling area of high pressure building in from the west, bringing an end to the snow as colder, drier air moves in and the storm moves offshore.

The last one mostly went below us, and so far it looks like this one will mostly go above us.

7:30 PM on the East....up to 45 mph sustained winds but no precipitation. 

Never drive on wooded and tree-lined country roads in these conditions.
