A major winter storm will form before sunrise near Virginia Beach. Because of numerous atmospheric conditions and connections, this storm will cause areas of rain, mixed rain and snow and areas of all snow. The all snow areas west of the Blue Ridge Mountains will get the most snow…18” in spots.

Areas along the Chesapeake Bay will receive the least with most of the precipitation as rain or super wet snowflakes. The immediate I 95 corridor is prime to see 3 to 7 inches of heavy wet snow. Remember what I conveyed aboved. A rapid increase in snow totals heading westward from the Chesapeake Bay.
