February 20-22 winter storm: forecast
A potent 'clipper' low pressure system will drop southeast through central West Virginia tomorrow, with models in agreement on a good swath of precip accompanied by it. Temps will be hovering around freezing in Charleston, making snow totals a toss-up. If we can stay below the 32F mark for the bulk of the day, 2 to 4 inches looks like a good bet areawide, with of course more in the mountains. After a brief lull Thursday morning, a surge of warm air aloft will bring a round of freezing rain through the state. The models' forecast timing of the second round of frozen precip ranges from Thursday evening to Friday morning. Not an epic storm by any means, but enough to make a mess of the roads. Wednesday's event looks very similar in strength and timing as the recent clipper on December 5. Light snow and freezing temps show up nightly on the models through the weekend.
