D.C.-area forecast: Some wintry mix possible today, a superb Sunday, and watching a winter storm risk http://wapo.st/2pl2rQi
Saturday's digit: 4/10 - I’m ready for warmth. Instead, it’s more clouds and some chilly raindrops — perhaps a little mixed precip as well.
Snow potential index 3/10 (→) Tue/Wed details aren’t really any clearer than they have been. Still very much wait and watch.
PM Update: Light rain may mix with sleet and snow Saturday, then it’s pretty pleasant for Sunday http://wapo.st/2IvhArl
On Saturday, don't be shocked to see a bit of light wintry mix (snow, sleet, and/or rain) in the D.C. area between mid-morning & early afternoon. Temps will be above 32, so minimal impact. In any event, this is not an all-day thing and precip will be spotty.
In our colder areas along & W of Interstate 81, where it comes in early Sat AM, it could be a little slick b/c temps will be near 32. Winter weather advisory is in effect for these western areas Saturday morning and afternoon.
Strong signal for Mid-Atlantic storminess next Tuesday and Wednesday, but how big a deal this will be depends so much on the specifics, which are fuzzy right now.
If you live in the northern and western parts of the region, you have the best chance to see significant snowfall, but rain could prevail if the storm takes more of a northern track.
We will keep providing detailed updates on this each day as long as it poses a threat.
What a shot! This is our #cwgpicoftheweek
835a: Snow showers and flurries zipping thru DMV. Last less than an hour and lowering visibility. May even dust the surface real quick. Not a big deal, but take it slow. Let us know what you’re seeing. Thanks
D.C.-area forecast: Windy and quite sunny today; some light mixed precipitation possible Saturday http://wapo.st/2Iu1M85
Friday's digit: 5/10 - It’s windy and chilly. We’re getting sick of this weather perhaps but we’ve seen worse (and better). So let’s muddle through.
Snow potential index: 3/10 (↑) DMV and Mid-Atlantic should keep an eye on the Tuesday-Wednesday zone next week.
Here we go again, one more time.
Snow lovers, this might be your last chance. Learn from the last one and manage expectations. Models will invariably go back and forth.
PM Update: A cold front passes tonight, and we’ve got more chilly wind for Friday http://wapo.st/2ItUGjN
Wow! Snowshoe resort has picked up over five and a half feet of snow in the last 8 days.
Some great spring skiing to be had!
The cherry blossoms at the Tidal Basin, which usually stop progressing when temperatures get too cold, have continued to make small moves over the past couple of weeks according to the National Park Service.
This happens on average once every 18 years. But we may see it happen for the second March in a row this year.
Apparently, February is the new fake spring and March is the new winter
D.C.-area forecast: Gusty winds neutralize today’s milder air, but it’s both cold and blustery Friday http://wapo.st/2pge1fz
