SNOW – SNOW and MORE SNOW is in the forecast…and we’ll leave it to meteorologist Brad Panovich to tell you!

Forecast update:

Okay I can’t help myself…..I’m getting really geeked up on this storm. This a meteorologist dream and skiers heaven in the Southeast. This is a complex weather situation upcoming tonight and early into the week ahead.

So here we go.

Surface low pressure added by tons of tropical moisture is strengthening in along the Gulf coat this morning (Sunday). An upper level low is over Oklahoma and the polar vortex is coming south from Hudson Bay Canada. All three are on a collision course over the Carolinas and the Mid-Atlantic. The combination will form a super bomb low pressure system off the Outer banks of North Carolina. With the strength and track of the low brining cold air south at the surface and creating some of it’s own cold air from dynamic cooling. Heavy snow is going to happen. This is a classic set-up fro winter storms across this part of the country. I don’t think there is any question about the Blue Ridge Mountains Northward getting hammered, the questions are how much snow Charlotte, Raleigh, Greensboro, Richmond and DC get. The add bonus here is the storm will allow for a prolonged period of Northwest flow snow in the Appalachians well into Wednesday or Thursday.

So here are my preliminary storm totals.

North Carolina Mountains North of Asheville to Virginia Border. 6-14”

Allegany Mountains in the Virginias: 10-18”

Piedmont of the Carolinas from I-85 North 3-6”

DC should be some rain to snow with 7”

I’ll post as frequently as the changes occur tonight and tomorrow so stay tuned next weekend or anytime this week are going to be awesome for skiing.

Good Skiing!
