SOUTHEAST OF INTERSTATE 95 THE SNOW MAY MIX WITH SLEET AT TIMES TONIGHT & WITH SLEET & RAIN AT TIMES DURING THE FIRST HALF OF THE DAY WEDNESDAY. HOWEVER THIS IS MORE LIKELY CLOSER TO THE COAST BUT AS COLDER AIR WRAPS AROUND THE STORM EVEN THESE AREAS ARE EXPECTED TO CHANGE BACK TO ALL SNOW.

WINDS WILL INCREASE AS WED CONTINUES & WILL CAUSE
CONSIDERABLE BLOWING & DRIFTING OF SNOW EVEN MORE THAN WHAT OCCURRED WITH THE WEEKEND SNOW STORM. AT & NEAR THE ATLANTIC SHORE BLIZZARD CONDITIONS ARE POSSIBLE WED AFTERNOON AS WINDS INCREASE.

A WINTER STORM WARNING MEANS SIGNIFICANT AMOUNTS OF SNOW AND SLEET ARE EXPECTED OR OCCURRING. STRONG WINDS ARE ALSO POSSIBLE. THIS WILL MAKE TRAVEL VERY HAZARDOUS OR IMPOSSIBLE.
