Tues-Wed Provides Some Snow Potential
* The Return of Cold: Full Forecast *
Next Chance of Accumulating Snow: Tues-Wed
Probability of Accumulating Snow: 55%
Most Likely Potential Impact:
A disturbance will form along a front stalled to our south. As it approaches the area and then slides by to the south, there's a chance it will produce some periods of snow for us Tuesday and Wednesday.
Canadian high pressure will be parked just to our north, providing the cold air supply necessary for snow. However, there's a chance it could push the disturbance so far south, that most of the snow falls in southern and central Virginia. On the other hand, if the high pressure is displaced a little to the north or weaker, it might allow the disturbance to track closer to region, and increase snow potential.
Taking these considerations into account, here is my assessment of snowfall possibilities for Tuesday-Wednesday:
45% chance: Dusting or less
20% chance: Dusting to 1"
20% chance: 1-3"
15% chance: 3"+
Another round of precipitation is possible on Thursday...but it's too early to discuss details.
The Snow Lover's Crystal Ball appears when the potential exists for accumulating snow beyond 24 to 36 hours.
