The frontal boundary that I mentioned yesterday still hasn’t crossed the region yet. As I said, it is a very slow mover! It will eventually cross the region late today before stalling out just to our east tomorrow. Showers will continue today and the rain will be heavy at times.
As the front stalls out to our east tomorrow, a disturbance will develop and move along the front. This will create more unsettled weather and more rain is expected tomorrow. Things get interesting tomorrow night as colder air begins to filter in behind the front. Rain will change over to snow and widespread accumulation is expected at this time. I say at this time because any change in the track of the disturbance will greatly affect snowfall amounts. Right now, locations on the western side of the Blue Ridge can expect 2-4″ while locations on the eastern side are looking at 1-2″.
Snowfall will taper off by Thursday morning as high pressure settles in. Thursday through Sunday look to be sunny but CHILLY. This is great news for the ski resorts as they will basically be starting from scratch again.
