Discussion

Temperatures will moderate today ahead of another Arctic frontal system, but then we’ll return to the deep freeze for the latter part of the week following the frontal passage. Meanwhile, an area of moisture in the Deep South will head northeast today and will skirt the DC metro region late tonight and early Thursday. Snow should break out across the region late tonight and continue into early Thursday with a coating to an inch or two of new snow likely in the District and immediate northern and western suburbs. Two to three inches of new snow are possible just to the south and east of DC with three or four inches possible across the southern part of the Delmarva Peninsula.
