The Latest On The Developing March Snowstorm

Repost This

A major snowstorm is developing in the Midwest, and is forecast to blitz the Mid-Atlantic states with damaging amounts of heavy, wet snow and high winds, a combination that could result in widespread power outages. The storm, named "Saturn" by The Weather Channel and "Snowquester" by the Washington Post, is expected to drop up to 2 feet of snow in the higher elevations west of Washington, D.C., with several inches likely in the nation's capital as well, beginning on Wednesday evening. Less certain are the impacts farther up the coast into New England, where the National Weather Service has posted winter storm and coastal flood watches, as computer model trends have been indicating a more significant encounter with the storm than earlier anticipated.
