'Monster' snowstorm appears to miss us (mostly)
4:38pm Wednesday update: Well, it looks like we'll start with some rain and then get around an inch of snow overnight, according to the latest from NWS. What the folks in New York and New England will get, however, is the "Snowicane," as some are calling it, with one to two feet of snow plus wind gusts that could hit 70mph. Yowsah! (And There's already a Wikipedia page on this one.)
Weather maps created by Accuweather show a "monster" snowstorm poised to strike the Northeast overnight tonight and Thursday, and although some of Virginia's northwesternmost mountains are expected to get some of the fluffy precipitation, the bulk of the storm appears to be missing the Charlottesville area, with the National Weather Service predicting just a 50 percent chance of snow here. Can't get 'em all!
