Snow Exiting Northeast, Continues in Eastern Ohio Valley
UPDATED 12:30 AM EST, February 17, 2010
UPDATED By WeatherBug Meteorologist, Chad Merrill
Snow continues to blanket the eastern Ohio Valley, the Allegheny Ridge and far eastern Massachusetts and Maine. Accumulations are winding down in the Northeast, but several more inches will pile up in the Allegheny Mountains where the current snowpack can be measured with a yard stick.
Winter Storm Warnings
continue across the highest peaks of the central Appalachians with Winter Weather Advisories
from western Pennsylvania, including Pittsburgh, to eastern Ohio south to West Virginia and eastern Kentucky and a small sliver of far eastern Maine.
WeatherBug Meteorologist Rachel Peterson has the latest on the Northeast and Ohio Valley Snow in this exclusive WeatherBug Wintry Weather Video.
Snow is clipping eastern Massachusetts and Maine from a low pressure that continues to move into the Atlantic Ocean while the majority of the fresh powder continues to fall as lake effect and upslope snow from southern Michigan to western Pennsylvania and West Virginia.
Another 2 to 4 inches will coat eastern Maine overnight with 3 to 9 inches possible in western Pennsylvania, including the Pittsburgh area. Meanwhile, the heaviest snow will fall along the Allegheny Ridge in Pittsburgh's far eastern suburbs to northern West Virginia where another 12 to 24 inches is possible. This is falling on top of a snowpack of 3 to 4 feet from previous storms.
If your plans take you into the East, be sure to check with your airline carrier before heading to the airport for any delays.
