Major Delmarva Snowstorm Possible
Though it is not likely for a huge I-95 snowstorm the immediate coastal areas could receive several inches of snow. Models are still not in consensus, but a few models are showing a monster storm traveling along the coast sending heavy precipitation from the Delmarva to Long Island. Temperatures during the time of the storm should be in the 30s making it plenty cold for a snowstorm to occur. If the storm does go up the coast heavy snow and blizzard conditions would occur on the Delmarva. Snowfall rates would be 2-3 inches an hour and 6-12 inches plus would pile up. If the storm goes off the coast flurries could still occur making it feel wintry. After this storm models are picking up a storm around Christmas. I will have more on this over the next couple of days.
