Here’s what you need to know about the winter storm and what you can do about it.
The National Weather Service issued a winter storm warning for parts of Pennsylvania, Virginia, Maryland and West Virginia.
The storm warning is in effect from 11 a.m.
Friday until 6 p.m., but it is not mandatory and the NWS does not typically issue them.
The storms will likely be weaker than normal.
The NWS expects the storm to bring more rain to parts of western and northern Virginia and the Eastern Shore of the Chesapeake Bay.
The NWS said Tuesday afternoon that the storm will likely bring rain to some areas, especially those near the Virginia border, but that the region may be without rain in the coming days.
The storm will also bring snow to parts in southern Virginia and parts of the Maryland-Northern Virginia region.
The strongest winds will be from the East Coast, the National Weather Forecast Office said.
The weather service said the storm is likely to bring gusts of up to 40 mph to parts, with a possibility of gusts as high as 65 mph.
The agency said it is too early to say if the storms will cause any damage.
There is no warning of damage from the storm, the NPS said.
Snow is expected to cover much of northern Virginia on Wednesday, and it will be much easier for motorists to navigate in the snow, the weather service added.
The White House on Tuesday issued a call for the public to help prepare for the potential effects of the storm on the economy.
President Donald Trump and First Lady Melania Trump will be visiting the Eastern District of Virginia on Thursday and Friday.
The president will visit the Dulles International Airport, which is expected as a major airport during the storm.
The Dulles airport will open at 8 a.k.m.(© Copyright 2017 The Associated Press.
