|Weather Advisories: SIGNIFICANT WINTER STORM POTENTIAL WEDNESDAY INTO THURSDAY|
We continue to see a weather scenario that features a distinct possibility of a snowstorm affecting the Capital Region starting Wednesday and continuing into Thursday morning. Rain could also be part of this storm initially, as temperatures may be a little warm to start with before colder air takes over and allows for the event to transition to all snow. The heaviest snowfall looks to occur Wednesday Night with this system. More details will need to be sorted out over the next couple of days in order to get a better handle on overall accumulations. However, it does appear likely this snowstorm could affect much of the area with a 4" or greater snowfall.
The weather players will be a southern jet stream disturbance currently lingering across the Southwest and a northern jet stream disturbance that will move into the Pacific Northwest today. By Wednesday there is the likelihood that these two will merge and create a new area of low pressure. On Wednesday morning, this area of low pressure will take shape in the Ohio Valley and track towards the mid-Atlantic coast as it intensifies. Precipitation looks to begin from Wednesday morning through early Wednesday afternoon before ending on Thursday morning. Due to the uncertainty in the exact storm track, along with how much rain may intially be involved, it's too early to predict a more specific range of snowfall amounts. Other factors with this storm could be some fairly brisk winds. Model guidance suggests this storm could have a pretty decent pressure gradient with it, thus enhancing the potential for winds gusting to over 30mph, leading to very low visibilites at times as the snow falls.
Stay up to date on the latest forecasts as the weather players involved continue to evolve.
