WASHINGTON — I can’t believe I’m writing about yet another possible storm — in the D.C. area — at the end of March. However, since social media is abuzz, it’s warranted.
At this time, we’re watching a potential storm for Tuesday into early Wednesday morning time frame (next week). If you lived in the D.C. region this winter, you know just how difficult it was to forecast some of these many storms even a day or two out.
That being said, there are more questions than answers. But here is what we know so far:
What we don’t know:
The high sun angle in March, even with clouds, has a big impact on any significant snow totals. If it falls hard and fast enough it could accumulate in spots. But that factor will need to be analyzed.
I have seen outlier models that predict a massive snow storm and, then again, I’ve seen some models predict squat. Try to ignore the social media aspect and the urge for instant gratification for information. I want it too because I’d rather not have another snow storm, but weather just doesn’t work that way.
The information just isn’t there at this time, but once we figure it out — we’ll let you know!
