Michael Small, thanks for getting this story out so quickly. It will now show up on the home page for four hours. If new developments justify it, I'll renew this flag for another cycle.
Snowmageddon Storm Moving Towards Washington
Snowmageddon is moving towards Washington and Baltimore, and the storm could dump more than two feet of snow as it moves across the east coast. Snowmageddon has prompted cancellations, blizzard warnings and flooding in some areas.
The storm, dubbed “Snowmageddon” by the Washington Post, threatens to dump as much as 28 inches of snow across much of the mid-Atlantic region, as well as heavy rains along the coast and farther south, according to weather service bulletins.
The storm is has federal offices in Washington to close at least four hours early, and is even forcing the University of Delaware to reschedule final exams and postpone the start of spring session. The University of Virginia canceled all classes today.
The National Weather Service says that Washington and Baltimore areas should plan for substantial transport delays this weekend, and that if more than eight inches of snow falls in Washington, metro services will be canceled.
