Nor’easter to Pummel Mid-Atlantic, Northeast Tonight

This frigid winter storm is coming together across the Southeast today, where it is already generating a nightmare of ice and snow from central Georgia into the Carolinas. As this system jumps off the Carolina coast early Thursday, it’ll develop into a major coastal storm.

The biggest question remains the exact track of the storm, as this will determine what will fall, and how much of it.

Current forecast projections indicate that it will produce the heaviest snow west of the Interstate 95 corridor stretching from the Shenandoah Valley of west-central Virginia northeast into northern Virginia, central Maryland, and south-central and southeastern Pennsylvania, southern New York, and western New England. Get weather details from WeatherBug Meteorologists
