This storm is challenging partly because there's so much warm around around south of it. That makes the ground warm, which will melt away some of the accumulation. That warm and moist air getting drawn in will also lead to some thunderstorms within the snow area, which can put down an amazing amount of snow in a short period of time. It's also a pretty awesome sight to see! If everything comes together just right, high elevation areas near the NC/VA line will get over a foot.

Through Saturday, we'll have a storm moving through with snow to the north and severe storms to the south.
This winter seems to not want to end with snow in the Appalachians Sunday night and unseasonable cold on the way later next week.
A slow-moving front will cause thunderstorms across the South this week, some severe with flooding downpours.
The next few days look busy across the Southeast with severe storms to worry about, followed by colder air and some snow.
Snow will spread from Kentucky to Delmarva through Monday night with areas farther south outside of the mountains receiving mainly rain.
