  2. Tommy says:

    As mentioned in the original post. It was discussed that the area would be expanded into other counties. The first watch was issued by Blacksburg NWS that covers counties up to Amherst. The Baltimore / DC office issued their watch around 3PM Friday afternoon to include their counties. We placed a link above and did a separate post as well. Tommy
