Image below shows the latest High Resolution Rapid Refresh (HRRR) model simulating the future radar through 1 pm Wednesday.
Snow will pick up in intensity during the morning hours on Wednesday:
-Visibility will be reduced under a quarter of a mile as the Nor’easter rapidly deepens off of the Mid-Atlantic coastline.
-A deformation zone will likely develop right across the interstate 95 corridor allowing for enhanced lift as the atmosphere stretches. This enhanced lift in the atmosphere will cause snowfall rates to increase to one to two inches per hour along with rapidly deteriorating conditions on area roadways.
Closer look at the immediate Metropolitan Area:
Additional Snowfall Potential through 8AM Wednesday:
– The latest high resolution model below suggests that there is the potential for 3 to 6″ or more of snowfall accumulation across the DC Area by 8AM. By then, the storm will have just been getting started.
Get ready for a fairly long duration event an be prepared for power outages especially Wednesday night as winds begin to gust to 40 mph behind the departing Nor’easter.
