It feels like the aspirin just wore off from this week’s travel headaches and the last thing you’ll likely want to read about is another impactful winter storm potentially snarling transportation across the nation. Unfortunately, this is once again the reality many are facing from the Tennessee River Valley through the I-95 corridor.
The whole gamut of winter precipitation is on the table, from freezing rain to heavy snow. The storm’s forecast track could determine who will experience the worst of winter’s fury, so let’s break down the potential hazards into regions and timing.
“The snow will start Thursday evening and we may see a slick evening commute,” Charleston West Virginia NWS Meteorologist Megan Kiebler told CNN. “By Friday morning, the bulk of the snow will have fallen and the slick spots will be more apparent.”Snow will be heaviest Thursday evening into early Friday morning from the Potomac Highlands, central Shenandoah Valley, and across the Blue Ridge Mountains. Snow will move into the DC metro region overnight and will create a messy Friday morning commute with a forecast of two to five inches expected.CNN
