Much to the disappointment of snow lovers, the weak storm that was expected yesterday stayed just far enough south and east of D.C. that we got a whole lot of nothing.{ } Who actually got the snow?{ } Here's a look at just how close it came to the area.{ }{ }{ }

Snow Cover Jan. 18th

Moving forward, we have pleasant weather through the weekend before an arctic blast arrives for early next week.{ } High pressure is building in today, bringing in cold air from the northwest.{ } It is a bit breezy, but winds should diminish this afternoon.{ } The cold air is coming at us from the Great Lakes and there are even a few lake effect snow showers popping up early this morning, but that should go away this afternoon, too.{ } A brief warm up for the weekend with highs in the upper 40s to near 50 degrees, but arctic air starts moving in on Monday with bitter cold Tuesday and Wednesday.{ } There may even be a few flurries on Monday for inaugeration day/MLK Day.{ } Enjoy the sun.{ }
