Discussion

The first day of spring will feature a total solar eclipse, "new" supermoon (http://vencoreweather.com/2015/03/17/150-pm-strong-geomagnetic-storm-currently-underway-and-could-cause-northern-lights-into-this-evening-friday-will-feature-three-celestial-events/) and accumulating snow in much of the Mid-Atlantic region. Cold air made a return to the region late Tuesday night and Wednesday and today accumulating wet snow will make a return on the same day that winter officially comes to an end. Snow develops later this morning and it will come down heavily at times later today. Slippery spots are likely on the roadways for the evening commute. Low pressure is organizing this morning over the Carolinas and it will gradually intensify as it moves to the northeast. The precipitation doesn’t wind down until later this evening.
