Episode Narrative A potent area of low pressure was located over the Tennessee Valley on the morning of Wednesday, January 26th. The warm front associated with the low triggered a period of mixed precipitation early Wednesday morning. There was enough warm air behind the warm front for precipitation to fall in the form of light rain and drizzle later during the late morning into the afternoon.
The low passed through the area late in the afternoon into the evening. A burst of heavier precipitation was associated with the low and at the same time colder air was drawn into the system. This caused a period of heavy snow to bring significant snow accumulation to the area in a short period of time. The heavy snow which fell around the evening rush hour caused numerous traffic accidents along with stranded vehicles especially across northern Virginia. Numerous power outages were also reported across northern Virginia where snowfall was the heaviest.
Event Narrative Snowfall totaled up to 8.0 inches near Rock Mills.
