Brad Panovich – YOU ARE THE MAN, DUDE!  Brad began forecasting the good chances for a BIG SNOW event on Tuesday night when he sent his Skier’s Forecast Video to us. We posted that video on Wednesday morning and it forecasted a good chance for a band of HEAVY SNOW from the Appalachian Mountains up and into West Virginia and Maryland.

The rest of the weather gurus that we look at including the NWS and others all reported very little precip and maybe even some rain for Friday and Saturday. NOW this morning, they are ALL in agreement with Brad’s initial assessment that we’re going to be DUMPED ON with as much as 10-12" of heavy snow beginning Friday and providing as many as 4 days of snow chances as we head into Christmas week!

You owe it to yourself to check back to THIS report within the hour as we’ll bring you the rest of the news and the latest weather update.
