margusity says the models are continuing to intensify the storm and move it east.  CWG as of this morning said there's a 15" chance of 4" of snow inside the beltway.

Loudoun and Fredrick are now under winter storm watches.

latest GFS model just echoed the NAM, this is going to be a big mid-atlantic storm, like last year Philly will be the center.
But don't they have a World Series parade this weekend?  4 aces RUKiddingme?

Well, it's spitting the rain down here in Fairfax County.  Hell of a nice day to move everything we own.  :(

It's snowing pretty good here... We have probably an inch or so. I went to a HS football game in Frostburg last night, snowed the whole game. It was pretty awesome.

The line must be near Dulles somewhere.   We keep going between snow, a sleet looking thing and rain.

Yep. off and on sleet.  Looked out a half an hour ago and thought that was going to keep going, but it stopped and just started as I'm typing.  Just not quite cold enough for steady stuff.

Huge flakes in E. Loudoun (snow not people).
