⚠️ WINTER STORM MODE ⚠️

Good evening Mid-Atlantic! Here is our First & Final Call release for Thursday/Friday.

.......................
‼️EDIT (12:15pm Thurs.):
- The medium blue color will now remain mostly snow. It may see some light rain Friday morning into the afternoon.
❗️This secion will have its snow totals increased by 2” for hi/low total range!
❗️The medium blue section will be expanding some.

- The light blue should be mostly snow mixed with sleet and possibly freezing rain. Some areas towards the green border may see intermittent periods of light to moderate rain depending on warm air influx.
❗️This area will shrink some and could potentially see an additional 1-2” of snowfall before changeover.

- Green from here out should be mostly all rain.
........................

The dark blue and purple should remain all snow and/or with snow changing over to mix (sleet &/or freezing rain). The dark blue region could possibly see some light rain showers late Friday afternoon; though it should all remain more of a frozen type of precip.

Timing will start up from the southwest towards the northeast. Expect overnight into Thursday for the southwestern most areas and then for central/eastern PA, it to start around the late morning to early afternoon. For these areas, you could expect up to 1/10” of icing before change-overs.

Please use caution if traveling as the roadways will be cold enough for travel troubles!! Especially as we progress into the afternoon and evening for Thursday.
