Today’s weather story from the National Weather Service:
Winter Storm Watch Tuesday and Wednesday
A strong storm system will move quickly from the southeast Texas coast early Tuesday and intensify as it lifts northeast through the Tennessee Valley and then into southwest Pennsylvania by daybreak Wednesday.
Snow will quickly overspread the area Tuesday afternoon from the southwest to the northeast and become heavy at times Tuesday night into Wednesday morning. A period of heavy snow with snowfall rates of 1 to 2 inches per hour is possible with greatly reduced visibilities. Total snowfall amounts by midday Wednesday are anticipated to be generally in the 6 to 10 inch range with the highest amounts along and south of the US Highway 24 corridor.
In addition, north winds will increase and likely cause significant areas of blowing snow to develop after midnight Tuesday night through Wednesday morning, especially in open and rural areas.
The winter storm watch is based on the latest information and is subject to change, depending on the storm’s exact track and strength.
