Looking at the radar out of Balitmore the real deal is about 40 miles south of DC and the back edge of the real precip is leaving Baltimore heading east and eastern Chester County heading east. All precip north and west of this line is all virga and actually not being picked up by the high resolution radars.
I checked the live cams down there in Dc and the roads are indeed dry despite seemingly hours of precipitation on the radar....
The snow / rain is going to have a really tough time moving north!
I expect the all precipitation to remain below the red line on the radar below. If you are north of the red line I do not expect there to be any precipitation at all.
There is a chance we see a snow shower or too very early in the morning as energy from the northern stream system dives in behind our departing storm.. What this could mean is a quick squall of snow or so in a few neighborhoods that can briefly whiten the ground and cause slippery travel most locations between 4AM and 7AM... After that skies clear and breezy conditions ensue with tems in the middle and upper 30's before ssw winds blow and warm us up over the weekend!
Nice snows falling in Roanoke!!
Happy Snowstorm Dean!!
I will be at the Winter Weather Workshop this Weekend!
As I predicted last night(I hate saying that), this thing is wimping out along the coastal plain. The sweet spot is the mountains of south western Virgina and north western NC. Atlanta had winter storm watches out last night and they got nada(another prediction). Charlotsville, VA. was forecasted to get 6-10 " and they had 2 hours of light snow. Downtown Richmond will get some snow, but not alot. Raleigh,NC.? Again, no big deal...still raining there. It was quite warm and rainy down there and I had my doubts about alot of snow in the coastal plain.
