We have been enjoying an extended snow season this year and I, for one, am grateful. As you may have noticed my weather updates have been lacking over the last couple of months and this was due to business travel and difficulty matching timezones with weather model runs. However, this mid-weeek system caught my attention this weekend. Timing will be critical in determining how much accumulation we receive. If the precipitation starts Tuesday aternoon into early evening we should expect significantly less accumulation. The models are still working out the timing details, but I think it is safe to expect a general 3-6″ for the Pittsburgh region while the Laurel Highlands and ridges around Garrett County, MD and WV could receive in the 1-2′ range.
