Live in Richmond VA. I'm a recent high school graduate who is looking to pursue a career in meteorology. Winter storms and the tropics fascinate me.

Good afternoon and I hope you are having a very Merry Christmas. For some of you it may have been a white one for those in the NW part of the state but in any case I hope it was a great one!
Let's start right off with tomorrow's storm. Here is a map which depicts what I think will happen tomorrow.
The areas in the light blue I divided it up. The dark blue areas, include Harrisonburg, Front Royal, Winchester, Strasburg, I am expectin...

It feels so great to be blogging again! After an exciting hurricane season I am ready to get winter cranking! Without further ado, here is my annual winter weather outlook for 2012-2013.
Anyone remember the dreadful winter we had last year? Yeah... that is one that I would love to forget about, unless you were a fan of warm weather. So what went wrong? Why didn't we see much in the way of snow?

Highs that day topped out at 80! Quite a contrast from the 30s and snow just a few days earlier. Thankfully no one was hurt. A small tornad...

This will be brief, but we do have a shot of seeing some light snow tonight as a clipper swings to our south. Best chance is SW of Richmond but a few could sneak into the area late tonight into early tomorrow. Snow is already being reported in Farmville, haven't heard anything from Blackstone or Southern VA yet. The temperatures are in the mid to upper 20s, plenty cold enough for snow, and with dew points in the upper teens, we should have little to no issues with d...
