Up to a foot of snow for parts of the U.S. this weekend

Looking at two separate storms.

One storm will move across the Great Lakes and New England, while the other will begin from the Gulf of Mexico and move upward, according to Accuweather.com.

“If the two systems merge, the massive storm will drop “a swath of heavy snow and ice,” across the region, AccuWeather Senior Meteorologist Brett Anderson noted.

Several inches to a foot (30 cm) of snow is likely for parts of North Carolina, Virginia and West Virginia, while an icy mix is forecast for parts of Georgia, Tennessee, South Carolina, North Carolina, Virginia and Maryland.

The storm could “unload snow and a wintry mix across portions of the Ohio Valley, South, and Northeast,” said AccuWeather senior meteorologist Alex Sosnowski.

  1. By upward I assume they mean move Northeastward? This system could produce snow over the southern Appalachians of NC this weekend (Asheville, Banner Elk, Boone, Beach Mt and Sugar Mt) with some snow even reaching the far western part of SC on Saturday, mainly west of Spartanburg.

  2. Some snow also expected in southeast Virginia (possibly starting late Saturday, or into Sunday). A bit worse to the west of me, but still very cold. Today also very breezy…

  3. We had 16 F with light snow off and on this morning in northwest North Carolina. The coming weekend looks to be ugly.
