But don't forget that we have phase 2 to look forward to. We've been studying the radar, and phase 2 is coming, but it may not be as organized and explosive as we were hoping. There's still plenty of time for it to develop to the anticipated heavy snow bands, but 15 to 20" may be out of the question for Delilah.
|4 PM radar|
The moisture is still lifting almost due north. The bottom part of the storm (all that moisture in Virginia) is enhancing and drawing in moisture from the Atlantic. An energy system in Ohio is in the process of transferring itself to the coastal low, which will bump up the intensity. The snow should continue to fill in the dry slot throughout the night, but we might see the big bands of snow shift more to our north.
Delays are possible tomorrow; a full snow day seems less likely because the storm is losing some of its tight formation.
