Light snow possible near and south of D.C.

Nova Forecast

Temperatures stay chilly

HAGERSTOWN, Md. (WDVM) — TONIGHT, NORTHERN VIRGINIA IS FORECAST TO GET SOME LIGHT SNOW AS IT GETS CLOSE TO DC, BUT CURRENTLY WE`RE EXPECTING THE BULK OF THE WINTER WEATHER TO STAY JUST TO THE SOUTH. TEMPERATURES THIS EVENING LOOK TO BE IN THE 20S EVERYWHERE. FRIDAY WILL THEN TURN OUT PRETTY QUIET AND JUST CHILLY TO END THE WEEK.

Another winter storm leaves, and here are some storm totals. – Scott Sumner

HEADING INTO SATURDAY, ATTENTION WILL TURN TO YET ANOTHER STORM, BUT THIS TIME SOME WARMER AIR WILL GET INTO THE MIX, SO THE END RESULT IS SLEET AND FREEZING RAIN. TEMPERATURES AT GROUND LEVEL WILL HOLD IN THE 20S TO AROUND 30, WITH TEMPERATURES ALOFT, CLIMBING WELL ABOVE FREEZING. SOME BRIEF MIXING WITH SNOW MAY BE POSSIBLE, BUT UNFORTUNATELY, THIS STORM LOOKS TO BE MORE OF THE ICY NATURE. VALENTINE’S DAY IS DRY BUT MOSTLY CLOUDY, BUT HEADING INTO NEXT WEEK, OUR ACTIVE PATTERN CONTINUES AS ANOTHER STORM WILL MOVE UP FROM THE SOUTH MONDAY NIGHT HEADING INTO TUESDAY. STAY TUNED!

The National Weather Service has just issued A Winter Storm Watch for areas around D.C. for Saturday. The Watch begins Saturday morning and lasts until Sunday morning. This is for ~1″ of additional snow, but mainly for 1/4″ of ice accumulation on top of the snow. Certainly use caution if you have to step outside anytime Saturday. – Scott Sumner
