Winter Storm Warning

The National Weather Service has issued a Winter Storm Warning effective noon tomorrow to 7PM Wednesday for another winter storm. The storm is currently forecast to arrive around 2-3PM Tuesday, and will last through Wednesday late afternoon. The updated forecast now calls for 10-20” of snow. The NWS Storm Prediction Center currently shows a 10-40% chance of the storm generating over 12". The D.C. Metro area is close to the south edge of this storm, so to some degree the storm totals will depend on the exact path of the storm. Temperatures will start near freezing, but will drop into the mid-upper 20's during the storm. Wednesday high is 33-36. Winds will be 15-25 MPH with higher gusts.

Please get emergency supplies before the storm strikes, as driving will become even more hazardous after the storm begins. Please also secure all loose objects on your property.
