A significant winter storm will continue to impact the eastern US over the next 36 hours, dumping exceptionally heavy snow in areas not accustomed to it.
We expect 12-18″ in the Virginia Beach area along with strong winds that will produce blizzard conditions at times.
We also expect snow to accumulate into northern Georgia, Alabama, and portions of Mississippi; snow is also likely across northern South Carolina.
We have increased snow totals somewhat on the northern fringe of this storm. We now expect 3-6″ up against the New Jersey Turnpike in NJ and the NYC metro area; accumulating snow will also spread a bit inland in southeastern New England, with heavier snow expected on the south Jersey shore, eastern Long Island, and extreme southeastern New England. Near Cape Cod, over a foot of snow is possible.
