Discussion

The long "significant snow" drought for the DC metro region is about to end as it appears that a major storm will affect the region from late Tuesday through Wednesday and significant snow accumulations are likely; especially, in the suburbs just to the west of the District. In fact, the greatest chance for substantial snowfall amounts of a foot or more will be in the higher elevations across eastern West Virginia, western Virginia and western Maryland and six inches or more are possible in and around the DC region. Low pressure will drop southeastward today across the Plains and should reach the North Carolina/Virginia border region by Wednesday. Significant total precipitation amounts are very likely from this storm from West Virginia eastward to the Delmarva Peninsula and possibly as far north as southeastern Pennsylvania. Temperatures will be border line between rain and snow during the storm so this will likely not be an all-snow event. The storm pulls away on Thursday and high pressure takes over at the end of the week.
