Winter Storm Continues to Affect Midwest before Moving to Mid-Atlantic

A strong winter storm will continue to bring moderate to heavy snow, as much as 4-9 inches, to parts of the Midwest & southern Great Lakes during the day on Tuesday before moving into the Ohio Valley by Tuesday evening. The system will move into the Mid-Atlantic on Wednesday, where it is forecast to produce 6-10 inches of snow, with as much as 10-20 inches possible in the higher elevations of West Virginia and western Virginia. Through Wednesday evening northern Virginia, Washington, D.C. and Maryland along the I-95 corridor will see 5 or more inches of wet, heavy snow with winds 15 to 25 mph, gusting to 35 mph. Power outages and difficult driving conditions are expected. This image was taken by the NASA/NOAA Suomi NPP satellite's VIIRS instrument around 1755Z on March 5, 2013.
