The Eastern Panhandle of West Virginia, Western Maryland, Potomac Highlands, and Shenandoah Valley can expect 10"-15"+ of snow.
The heaviest snow will occur between 5am and Noon Wednesday. The snow tapers off by midnight Wednesday.
The snow will be a heavy and wet which besides causing travel problems during this period, could also bring down power lines and tree limbs. The wind will pick up during the day on Wednesday from 15-25 mph with gusts at 30 mph.
Needless to say, this is going to be one of the largest storms this area has seen in a couple of years.
