Snow will linger through Wednesday midday

Chris Bailey's forecast: Tracking a spring snow system

Snow begins to fall northwest of Triangle

Migratory birds such as the Blue-headed Vireo head south for the winter but bring their songs back to OH in the spring months.

Rain will change over to a wintry mix which could change over to a period of snow showers. The greatest risk for slick travel will be on elevated surfaces.

Tuesday: Cold, wet and breezy with rain in the morning that will mix with sleet this afternoon.

The "main course" is expected working through the day Wednesday as low pressure deepens and strengthens off the Mid-Atlantic coast and tracks northeastward.

Elsewhere in the state, the storm was expected to bring up to 6 inches (15 centimeters) of snow.

The heaviest snow will fall overnight and the snow will taper off during the day Wednesday.

Meteorologist Ben Gelber said most areas in the Poconos should expect to see between four and six inches of snow through this evening.

That southern batch will move across the Richmond area over the next few hours.

Total accumulations will average between 1-3 inches across central OH, with locally heavier amounts over higher terrain in the western and northern parts of the state.

The Lehigh Valley should expected six to 10 inches of snow while eastern Warren County is in line for nine to 14 inches.

Bell said that most of the D.C. area will just stay wet most of Tuesday, although the Shenandoah Valley could see sleet and snow start to accumulate before sunset.

As in past March coastal storms earlier this month, locally heavier bands of snow will develop, which could deliver locally higher amounts in excess of a foot where these bands persist.

But so far the snow has held off around the Triangle.
