A quote from the infamous George Carlin: I swear to God, he said, "Louisiana is expecting a rain event." And I thought, "Holy @#$%, I hope I can get tickets to that!"

Why can't it simply be SNOW?

Here comes Round #2!!!



Increasing possibility of significant FREEZING RAIN event for the region Tuesday Night.

The National Weather Service has issued a WINTER STORM WATCH for Montgomery County from Tuesday Evening through Wednesday Morning. A very strong low pressure system is expected to develop over the Mid West. This storm is expected to pull precipitation into the region and over freezing air at the surface. Initial precipitation may fall as snow before a change over to SLEET and FREEZING RAIN.

Current indications suggest this will be a mixed precipitation event for the County. Residents should begin Winter Storm preparations which should consider the potential of significant ice accumulations with power outages within the next 48 hours. Please remain alert for the issuance of additional Warnings.

A winter storm watch is issued when there is the potential for significant snowfall and hazardous winter weather within 48 hours.

...winter storm watch in effect from tuesday evening through
wednesday morning...

The national weather service in sterling virginia has issued a
winter storm watch...which is in effect from tuesday evening
through wednesday morning.

Precipitation is expected to begin tuesday afternoon in the
central shenandoah highlands as a period of snow...moving north to
the pennsylvania border early tuesday evening. Precipitation is
expected mix with sleet...become heavier tuesday evening and
change to rain. However temperatures at the surface will stay
below freezing...so rain that falls will freeze on impact.
Freezing rain is expected to continue throughout tuesday night
before warmer air moves in wednesday morning.

One quarter inch of freezing rain accumulation is possible. The
most likely place to receive that much would be in the colder
low lying areas of the shenandoah valley and allegheny highlands.

A winter storm watch means there is a potential for significant
snow...sleet...or ice accumulations that may impact travel.
Continue to monitor the latest forecasts.
