My parents live to the east of Stanton, just got off the phone with them and they're saying it is definitely changing over to snow there, great, big, slushy flakes are falling, with some rain still falling. They are on the extreme western edge of the WS Warning, with 3 to 6 inches of snow expected. This is from a Special Weather Statement:
...WINTER STORM WARNING IN EFFECT UNTIL 6 AM EST SUNDAY...
A BAND OF MODERATE TO HEAVY SNOW WILL MOVE ACROSS THE AREA BETWEEN
5:15 PM AND 7 PM. REPORTS OF TWO AND HALF INCHES OF SNOWFALL FROM
THIS BAND HAVE ALREADY BEEN RECEIVED FROM PINEVILLE AND MIDDLESBORO.
SNOWFALL RATES OF UP TO TWO INCHES PER HOUR WILL BE POSSIBLE AS THIS
BAND MOVES NORTH. AREAS NORTH A LINE FROM MCKEE TO JACKSON TO WAYLAND
TO PIKEVILLE SEE THE MOST INTENSE SNOW THROUGH 7 PM. INSPITE OF THE
WARM GROUND...THE SNOW WILL FALL FAST ENOUGH AT SOME LOCATIONS FOR
ONE TO TWO INCHES TO ACCUMULATE.
My grandmother lives in central Virginia, and they are expecting almost two foot of snow!
Tonight: Snow. The snow could be heavy at times. Low around 28. East wind 6 to 9 mph increasing to between 14 and 17 mph. Chance of precipitation is 100%. Total nighttime snow accumulation of 7 to 11 inches possible.
Saturday: Snow. The snow could be heavy at times. High near 32. North wind between 11 and 17 mph. Chance of precipitation is 100%. New snow accumulation of 10 to 14 inches possible.
Add the minimum totals and you get 17 inches (the current snow totals predicted has 18.0 over her), and the maximum totals come out to 25 inches.
