The National Weather Service in Charleston sent out an advisory map Tuesday. This time around, temperatures will be cold enough that snow may stick to some roadways, making for a brief period of slick travel.
Based on the most likely storm track at this time, the swath from Washington, D.C., to Baltimore and Philadelphia appears to be smack in the middle of the swath of heavy snow. The WFMY News 2 weather team says a few light snow showers could bring yet another dusting to the Triad on Wednesday.
This far out, the forecast has a large margin of error, according to CNN meteorologist Judson Jones.
There is a possibility, according to forecasters, that the storm could take a more southerly track, sparing Central Jersey the worst of the weather from midnight Friday through midnight Saturday. "Timing and intensity will continue to change throughout the week", he said.
The potential exists for a major snowstorm to affect more than 50 million across the eastern United States at the end of the week. The coldest wind chills are found in northern New York from the St. Lawrence River Valley near Massena and Malone, through the Adirondacks and Lake Placid and Saranac Lake.
As of Tuesday, it was forecast to hit in the mid-Atlantic, bringing more than a foot of snow. Most communities in the Boston area were reporting anywhere from 2 to 4 inches of snow by 7:30 a.m. Monday.
Is it coming or not? The system is just starting to come in from the Pacific and won't reach the East Coast until Friday.
