The mid-Atlantic region will be slammed by a major snowstorm Friday night and Saturday with amounts of more than a foot expected in northern Virginia, Maryland and the southern tier of Pennsylvania. The southern half of New Jersey and northern Delaware could do equally well.

This will be the second major snowstorm for the region within seven days, and another one could be coming right on its heels. For what it's worth, the computer models are suggesting just that. The next storm will be a much colder system spreading snow through the southern Plains Sunday night and Monday. This next winter weather event could reach the Eastern states Monday night and Tuesday.

That would make it four majors. Remember, there was a blizzard back in December. Four major snowstorms for the mid-Atlantic in less than 60 days. I guess one could call it a Winter Grand Slam.
