What part? I’m still straight ZR. Looking forward to sleet because these ice accumulations are getting wild.

Just measured 1/4" ice accretion.  Third legit ice storm of the year here in Clarksburg.

Public Information Statement
National Weather Service Baltimore MD/Washington DC
841 AM EDT Tue Mar 20 2018

*****VIRGINIA TORNADO PREPAREDNESS DAY - MARCH 20, 2018*****
*****VIRGINIA TORNADO DRILL AT 945 AM TODAY*****

Today is Tornado Preparedness Day in Virginia. At 945 AM, the 
National Weather Service will conduct a statewide tornado drill. 
All NWS offices serving Virginia will issue drill tornado messages
at that time. The purpose of this drill is to provide schools, 
businesses, and residents of the Commonwealth with the opportunity
to activate and test their emergency plans for tornadoes. 

The Virginia tornado drill will utilize a test tornado warning, just 
as in 2017. We will issue this test tornado warning under the 
standard tornado warning product PIL (TORLWX). NOAA Weather Radio
will transmit the test warning as it normally would for a real 
tornado event, and the Emergency Alert System (EAS) will also be 
activated as if the drill were an actual tornado warning. However,
the product text will clearly indicate that it is a test, and not
an actual tornado warning. Therefore, anyone receiving the 
tornado drill via NOAA Weather Radio, or commercial radio and 
television, will be able to know that the activation is for 
tornado drill purposes.

Questions about the Virginia Tornado Drill can be directed to:

Chris Strong              OR     Jeff Caldwell

Sucks to be on the line.  Webcams show heavy snow at Clover Hill.  Probably all snow in downtown Frederick according to the CC radar.

Not feeling the warm and fuzzies

I thought we were all punting wave 1 except for N and W, anything frozen today is gravy.  Real show is tomorrow AM through afternoon.
