February 6, 2010 - Final Look at the 2010 Winter Storm

Final recap of the storm and a look ahead at the week.

The snow has ended and now the clean up begins! We've made it all the way through our second major storm of the 2009-2010 season. We're still waiting on word if BWI set its all time record snowfall, but I imagine that they did. At last look, they were 0.3" away from the record and still had 5 hours of light snowfall to go. Any gut feelings about a third major storm of the season? I know our weather watchers say more is to come, but we'll have to see about that.

Final snowfall total at WHSV Harrisonburg: 18"

Amounts seem to have stayed in the 18"- 24" range with isolated amounts closing in on 30". Hopefully everyone is able to clear out tomorrow in preparation for next week. Be safe as you head out Sunday!

I know everyone was focused on the weekend, but I'm sure you heard talk about wintry precipitation this coming Tuesday and Wednesday. It is a likely event, but computer models remain undecided on what type of precipitation we'll receive. What we can see is a piece of energy moving into the Ohio Valley from the north and another piece of energy moving in from the south. Once again, a coastal low will form and we'll have about 12-18 hours of precipitation.

Models will come into better agreement Monday. For now, let's all take a day off from the weather and enjoy our winter wonderland!
