Late week rainstorm to become Mid-Atlantic, Northeast snowstorm

MYRTLE BEACH, SC (WMBF)  A storm system moving through the Carolinas on Friday will bring another round of rain to our region, and is likely to become a major snowstorm for areas well to our north. 

The cold weather we are seeing across the Carolinas now will start to ease up just in time for another storm system to move through from late Thursday through early Saturday. Another round of potentially significant rain is likely especially on Friday. Rainfall totals may once again exceed one inch across the Grand Strand and Pee Dee.  This system is forecast to push a brief bout of mild weather into the area with temperatures in the 50s and 60s on Friday. 

The same storm system will rapidly intensify off the coast of North Carolina and Virginia Friday night and Saturday and slowly move to the northeast. This will set the stage for a potentially major snowstorm in areas from Virginia to Maine.  It's still too early to determine the exact areas of heaviest snow or how much exactly may fall but some some areas from central Virginia through the Northeast could see as much as one to two feet of snow. 

Keep this in mind if you have late week or weekend travel plans to areas to our north. This storm will likely have major impacts on travel across a large area.
