Impressive snow, here’s where…

Mid-evening update this Thursday, 24 hours or thereabouts before the storm starts rolling in.

Impressive winter storm for December, and one to be remembered in many quarters of Virginia.  All areas except Tidewater can expect accumulating snow in varying degrees.

The complicating factor for metro Richmond and points east of I-95 will be potential sleet mixing with snow, which would depress totals significantly.  Western portions of the metro area will see more snow, with a rapid increase in totals traveling west.

Stay tuned.

  1. Thanks, Copenhagen! (Seems like the more global warnming and greehouse gases are in the news, the more blizzards occur.)

    The world has gone crazy! Just got an email from my brother in England who says he’s getting big snow right now in a town that never normally gets snow!

    Is it all leading up to 2012?

    I’ll be missing the snow 😦 Heading to NY for the weekend with the family tomorrow morning. Any chances of snow Saturday in the City? 🙂

    Am I crazy, or does the 00:00 UTC seem to trend a little colder with RIC and points W staying below 32F aloft through the entire event(i.e. – less chance of mixing with sleet overnight)? If I’m right, is this an outlier model or are the latest runs of the others trending that way as well? All the hard work is much appreciated!

    The line where the heaviest accumulations occur will fall roughly along I-95 within 20-30 miles and to the west. Cannot really predict how that aligns until tomorrow.

    Let us know when it’s time to hunker down!

    I too would like to know the answer to this question. I live in west Chesterfield, actually, the same neighborhood as Tom P. Are we far enough west to see the greater snow fall?

    When you say western parts of the metro area, how far west are we talking? Like Chesterfield or further than that??
