Tuesday snow could cause school delays, cancellations

WASHINGTON — Snow is looking increasingly likely Tuesday afternoon into Wednesday, and school closings and delays are a possibility on Wednesday, Storm Team 4 meteorologist Chuck Bell said.

Meteorologists will continue to monitor the clipper system coming out of the Great Lakes area and heading toward the mid-Atlantic. The most likely time the area will see snow is between 9 p.m. Tuesday and noon on Wednesday. Here’s a look at possible accumulations in the area:

Tuesday’s snow will not be a major storm, but there could be as much as 2 inches around D.C.

“Confidence in seeing at least some light snow is fairly high, but the confidence in getting over an inch remains relatively low,” Bell said.

School delays are possible on Wednesday, StormTeam4’s Amelia Draper said, and closures are likely in southern Maryland.

Temperatures will be in the 40s on Tuesday, and Wednesday’s temperatures will fall to near 30. Thursday is expected to be breezy and sunny, with temperatures back in the 40s.

If that’s too dreary, never fear: Weekend temperatures could climb into the 50s.
