Areas affected...Portions of eastern WV...western VA...much of
northern MD...PA...and far western NY

Concerning...Winter mixed precipitation 

Valid 120916Z - 121515Z

SUMMARY...Freezing rain rates up to 0.10 inch per hour will be
possible, especially in higher terrain. A wintry mix of snow, sleet,
and freezing rain appears likely across parts of PA into far western
NY through 15Z. The snow and sleet may be heavy at times.

DISCUSSION...Generally light, showery precipitation ongoing at 09Z
across parts of the Mid-Atlantic should gradually increase in
coverage and intensity through the morning as an upper trough
approaches from the west. Surface observations across eastern WV and
western VA show temperatures generally between 30-32F. Light
freezing rain should remain possible across this region for the next
couple of hours, although any substantial accretion will probably be
limited to the highest elevations of the Appalachians due to the
marginal surface temperatures. A shallow sub-freezing layer across
much of northern MD into PA and far western NY will be slow to erode
this morning as surface high pressure remains in place over New
England and Quebec. A weak (+1 to +2C) warm nose around 850 mb
should develop slowly northward, and freezing rain rates up to 0.10
inch/hour will be possible, especially in northern MD and parts of
western/central PA. A wintry mix of snow and sleet should occur on
the northeastern edge of the precipitation shield where temperatures
in the surface to 850 mb layer should remain at or below freezing.
The snow and sleet may become heavy at times (snowfall rates up to 1
inch/hour and sleet rates of 0.1 to 0.25 inch/hour) as the
large-scale forcing for ascent associated with the upper trough
overspreads this region.
