    Blizzard of '96 Anniversary

    "The Great Furlough Storm" closed the federal government for over a week. Here in Lynchburg, VA we received our largest 24 hour snowfall (20 inches). My favorite storm...

    The Psuhoffman Storm

    Here is what Blacksburg is saying.... AREA FORECAST DISCUSSIONNATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE BLACKSBURG VA618 PM EST SAT JAN 22 2011 .SYNOPSIS...HIGH PRESSURE WILL REMAIN OVER THE REGION TONIGHT AND SUNDAY KEEPINGARCTIC AIR IN PLACE. THIS AREA OF HIGH PRESSURE WILL REMAIN INCONTROL THROUGH LATE MONDAY BEFORE LIFTING NORTHEAST AND WEAKENINGBY MONDAY NIGHT. COMPLEX LOW PRESSURE WILL THEN DEVELOP ACROSS THESOUTHEAST STATES BY EARLY TUESDAY...AND TRACK NORTHEAST ALONG THECOAST...WITH THE LIKELIHOOD OF A SIGNIFICANT ACCUMULATING SNOW FORPARTS OF THE REGION. .LONG TERM /TUESDAY THROUGH SATURDAY/... TUESDAY THROUGH WEDNESDAY...ECMWF REMAINS THE MOST CONSISTENT MODEL ALTHOUGH SLIGHTLY SHIFTING THE TRACK OF THE SURFACE LOW TO THE EAST. SREF/GEFS AND OPERATIONAL NAM/GFS ARE STILL ALL MORE PROGRESSIVE WITH THE SYSTEM. WILL STAY CLOSER TO THE TIMING OF THE ECMWF WHICH BRINGS IMPRESSIVE LIFT INTO THE REGION BY LATE IN THE DAY TUESDAY WITH STRONG ONSHORE LOW LEVEL FLOW AND ISENTROPIC LIFT. ECMWF PARTIAL THICKNESSES SUGGEST THERE WILL BE A ZONE OF MIXED PRECIPITATION...POSSIBLY IN THE EASTERN COUNTY WARNING AREA OR FARTHER EAST...BETWEEN THE HEAVY SNOW AND THE RAIN. WAY TOO EARLY AT THIS TIME TO PINPOINT THE PRECIPITATION TYPE OR AMOUNTS SO WILL CONTINUE TO HIGHLIGHT THREAT OF SIGNIFICANT WINTER WEATHER IN THE HAZARDOUS WEATHER OUTLOOK. STAYED WELL BELOW GUIDANCE FOR MAXIMUM TEMPERATURES ON TUESDAY WITH STRONG CAD IN PLACE. ONCE LOW MOVES EAST OF THE FORECAST AREA IT WILL CONTINUE TO QUICKLY DEEPEN. THE COMBINATION OF THE PRESSURE GRADIENT AND PRESSURE RISES WILL RESULT IN VERY STRONG WINDS ON WEDNESDAY. ON WEDNESDAY NIGHT...WE WILL BE ON THE BACKSIDE OF THE SYSTEM WITH THE ASSOCIATED DRY SLOT MOVING NORTH ALONG THE EASTERN SIDE OF THE APPALACHIANS. ACROSS SE WV AND AREAS SOUTH INTO THE NORTHERN MOUNTAINS OF NC...STRONG NORTHWEST FLOW WILL ALLOW FOR THE CONTINUATION OF ISOLATED TO SCATTERED SNOW SHOWERS IN THIS AREA. THESE SNOW SHOWERS ARE EXPECTED TO CONTINUE...BUT SLOWLY DECREASE IN COVERAGE AS WE PROGRESS THROUGH THURSDAY NIGHT. THERE MAY BE ENOUGH MILDER AIR IN SOME LOCATIONS THURSDAY FOR THE SHOWERS TO BE RAIN SHOWERS OR SNOW SHOWERS MIXED WITH RAIN SHOWERS.
