Wednesday morning video update from the National Weather Service and Brad Panovich
For fans of snow this weekend could bring what you have been looking for this winter season, measurable snow and quite a bit of it. Forecasters are closely watching the potential for a winter storm to set up on the East Coast starting as early as Thursday.
The National Weather Service says it is a “potentially stronger winter storm” than we have seen this winter season. With several days away from the possible storm, weather officials advise that it is still too soon to tell how or if the system will produce.
Brad Panovich, Chief Meteorologist for NBC Charlotte, says “There are still huge questions about track, intensity and type of storm this could be. The storm is currently over the Pacific ocean, so it is not being sampled by any upper air station. Thus, the models are not going to have a really good handle on the situation until tomorrow night or early Wednesday.”
