  • If you have power this morning it would be a good idea to turn the heaters up because when the 35 to 40 mph wind gusts hit the Washington Region later on this afternoon, scattered to widespread power outages are possible.

 

  • Near white out conditions are possible today as snow fall rates may reach 2 to 3″ per hour in the heaviest snow bands!

Winds will continue to gust well over 30 mph during the overnight as this storm “wobbles” off of the Mid-Atlantic coastline.

I am concerned about widespread power outages… 

The threat will shift to flooding later this week as a quick melt off will send rivers and creeks out of their banks…

    Don’t lose heart! You can’t help if the “tea leaves” (computer models) tell you one thing and Mother Nature throws yet another curve. Hopefully next year will make up for this freakin snow drought. A disappointed Bowie-tian.
