The major winter storm is now in eastern Kentucky with a secondary storm starting to form in South Carolina.{ } Look at the extent of the storm.{ }{ }

The storm gave us our first real taste of snow early this morning before temperatures rose above freezing in the metro are and now just a cold rain washing away the snow.{ } A different story well west and north of D.C., where sleet and snow continues especially western Maryland.{ } Look at Keyser's Ridge in western Maryland.{ }{ }
