A Snowy Second Half of the Week WV 2-27-13

After today, brace yourself for several days of snow, cold, and wind.  March is coming in with a bang!

Low pressure to our north is going to create a northwest flow snow event beginning tonight.  This initial round will create some fairly decent totals through Friday evening.  Accumulations in the 4-10 inch range look about right with the usual favored locations on the higher end of that range.

A second piece of upper level energy passes overhead this weekend.  A strong upper trough will engulf the eastern portion of the country as well and bring a reinforcing shot of some very cold air along with it.  As a result, snow showers continue through the weekend.  Accumulations don’t look as intense with this second round.

The next several days should bode well for the ski areas and make for a powder weekend!  If you’re headed out to get some turns in, make sure to bundle up as it’s going to be cold and pretty windy.

Monday will see a break in the action before another system looks set to arrive later on Tuesday.  In general, the next few weeks look very active.
