The Mid-Atlantic is preparing for a repeat of the Dec. 19 storm that dumped more than 20 inches of snow on some areas.
The National Weather Service has issued a warning stretching from Baltimore to northern Virginia and parts of West Virginia. The forecast calls for heavy snow with near-blizzard conditions. The warning is in effect from 10 a.m. Friday to 10 p.m. Saturday. Total accumulations of 16 inches to 24 inches are expected.
The weather service warns that the combination of heavy snow and high winds means travel Friday night will be "very hazardous or nearly impossible."
The weather service has issued a storm watch for Delaware, with 6 to 12 inches forecast. Higher totals are possible in the Delmarva region.
