Just like last week's story that brought about 2 inches of wet snow to Danville, predicting accumulations remains tricky for forecasters: it all depends on the exact track of the storm and how much cold air is in place.

There's little doubt in my mind now that we're going to see a "hit" from this second Wednesday storm. The main snow from this system will be confined to far northern Virginia - the mountains west of Winchester and Harrisonburg likely hardest hit - with some chance the snow could reach as far south as the I-64 corridor for a while. This means there's the potential for significant snow which could impact travel.
