According to those who make a living — or at least an enjoyable pasttime — predicting doom and gloom, the area may get 6-12 inches of snow or more on Wednesday going into Thursday if — and there always is an “if” — current trends hold together and nothing chances over the next 12-27 hours.

Roanoke Times weather guru Kevin Myatt says six inches or more is likely with a possibility of 12 inches or more in some area.

A snowfall of a foot or more could wreak havoc on a school system already out of snow days and residents who have fought cold and more in a strange winter.
Will it happen? Time will tell.
