TOO MUCH, TOO SOON

Too much, too soon.

5:30 AM ET FRI 12/7/18
  • HIGH PRESSURE RIDGE OVER THE NORTHERN STATES THIS WEEKEND WILL COUNTERBALANCE APPROACH OF A SOUTHERN WINTER STORM, KEEPING MAJORITY OF WINTRY PRECIP SOUTH OF THE D.C./I-66 CORRIDOR.
  • UP TO 6-12" POSSIBLE FROM SOUTHERN VIRGINIA TO CENTRAL & WESTERN  NORTH CAROLINA. Some areas will receive twice their normal seasonal snowfall in one event.  System may be an indicator of what a favorable pattern would able to produce in the Mid-Atlantic later in the season. 
  • FLURRIES OR OCCASIONAL LIGHT SNOW POSSIBLE in the DC metro area, with accumulating snow of 1-2" possible south of DC toward central Virginia. Baltimore metro area and north to PA unlikely to receive accumulation, but may see a passing snow shower at times on Sunday.

LATEST SURFACE MAP PROJECTION DEPICTS DUAL HIGH PRESSURE SYSTEMS KEEPING WINTER STORM LARGELY SOUTH OF MID-ATLANTIC, WITH HIGH IMPACT SNOWFALL CENTERED IN THE CAROLINAS.  See our previous report for probabilities. In short, it's too much cold air too soon for the Mid-Atlantic, and too much snow too soon for Carolinas.

This is a good feature because through this, we can get knowledge about weather and seasons and do our tasks accordingly. Many people are happy because before this, they were facing issues regarding their crops and now they will enjoy a huge profit. According to the writers of dissertation writing services this information is very helpful for agriculture-related students.
