More Major Snowfall for Mid-Atlantic States

WASHINGTON, Feb. 4 (UPI) — Weather forecasters are calling for the possibility of 20 inches of snow this weekend in parts of Virginia, Maryland and Washington.

The newest storm front is expected to move in early Friday.

With each passing hour, The Washington Post said, likelihood of serious accumulation grows in the Mid-Atlantic region. Post forecasters say 10 inches of snowfall is likely in some areas and “there’s a chance for significantly more than that” in others.

The National Weather Service in Washington said a foot is likely “with localized depths of more than 20 inches.”
