January 18, 2011 - One Down, Three To Go...?

The first round of wintry weather has come and gone, but there's more on the way! Read on in today's blog!

I think the storm overnight came as expected - we received .25" snow in Harrisonburg and .10" sleet/freezing rain accumulation. Now that we've finished this one...what's next?

We have another system coming in from the west. The majority of the wintry precipitation will stay in the highest elevations to our west, but a few snowflakes could mix in at the very end of the event. It will be overnight so most of us won't even know if the flakes actually fell in the Valley - no accumulation is expected. However, the western slopes of the higher elevations will see some accumulation from Wednesday into Thursday.

Friday will be our next event - mainly Friday morning. We're going to see a system quickly move by the area but it looks to bring some snow here to the Valley. Right now accumulations look light but the timing of the snow may force some delays. This system is moving in from the west and looks to be impacted by the mountains a little bit - which is why we're looking at a bit less snow for Friday.

I hate that the winter forecast is panning out as planned - I really want a good snow!

Feel free to ask questions :)
