The really heavy snow moves in tonight:
In light of high levels of snow already collected on homes and other structures, mid-Atlantic residents should keep in mind dangers the weight of snow presents.
The torrential rainfall mixing with snow in areas that do not receive new snowfall will provide the greatest danger.
“With temperatures close to freezing in areas that have seen the heaviest snowfall, that could be the biggest concern,” said AccuWeather.com Senior Meteorologist Alan Reppert.
Of additional concern is the high winds, which can cause significant drifting of snow. That can cause uneven amounts on rooftops and lead to structures to collapse.
Winds of 20-40 mph with gusts exceeding 60 mph in spots are forecast for a wide area of the East, from Ohio eastward to Maine and down along the Atlantic coast to North Carolina.
All I know is, if I hear anything that sounds suspicious, I’m out of here.
