A massive storm hits the northeast U.S. Saturday with upwards of two feet expected in Virginia including the nation's capital. Winter storm warnings fly for D.C. - Philadelphia - New York - Baltimore and Boston.
Light snow will develop early Saturday morning and continue through the afternoon. Accumulations are expected to only reach an inch in the city by night fall. Up to two inches are expected over eastern Indiana and into Ohio.
A second minor system dives south Sunday afternoon from Minnesota offering a chance of light snow Sunday night.
Christmas week will open breezy and cold as all the attention turns to a developing storm in the southwest U.S.
THE LATEST ON A CHRISTMAS STORM
Two weeks and counting. This storm has been in the cards for over 14 days per the NWS long range GFS model. All long range models now have the storm in play but the question is where is this storm track going to be. As of Friday night the track is split nearly 50 / 50 as to a northern (warmer) track and a southern (colder - with snow) track.
While still very early - its certainly going to cause serious travel problems next week. As it stands here is the computer model comparison.
