We are tracking our next chance for accumulating snow. This will NOT be a big storm, but it might have an impact due to timing. Light rain is expected to arrive after sunset. The rain will eventually mix with and, for roughly the northern half of our listening area, changeover to snow. Mixed precip events like this are notoriously difficult to forecast. Everyone should get at least some snow, but with temperatures between 32-36 degrees tomorrow, the snow could be heavy and wet, mixing with rain at times.  We are anticipating 3-6”+ in the warning area and 1-3” in the advisory. Many roads, especially neighborhood will be snow covered by late Tuesday evening.

Another piece of energy in the upper levels could bring some more light snow to our western zones on Wednesday and a few flurries east of the mountains as the storms exits and intensifies off the coast but we are not expecting any more accumulation. The remainder of the work week, we will be dealing with dangerously cold air.

Wednesday and Thursday will be fairly breezy with temperatures in the 30s and wind chills in the teens and 20s. We stay in the 30s to finish out the next work week with sunshine, thanks to high pressure building back into the area. Valentine’s weekend we will have highs in the 20s and lows in the single digits many neighborhoods.

Monday night: Light rain and light snow changing to all snow overnight, especially in northern Maryland.

Minor accumulations through the morning rush.

Lows: Mid to Upper 30s

 

Tuesday: Snow showers, heavy bands at times morning into early afternoon – a few inches likely.

Total accumulation of about 1”-3” in northern Virginia and DC.

3”-6” in Maryland, mainly north of Montgomery and Prince George’s Counties.

Highs: Mid to Upper 30s

 

Wednesday: Mostly cloudy. Blustery and cold with flurries.

Highs: Mid to Upper 30s, Wind chills in the 20s.

 

Thursday: Mostly Cloudy, Continued Cold, Less Wind

Highs: Mid to Upper 30s

Our medical systems aren’t equipped for this influx and our bodies can’t handle it. The question isn’t “How did we get here?” but “How can we fix it?” and fast.
