DC weekend snowfall officially the most since January 2016 blizzard

395 Sun Night

Finally a decent snow storm for the Washington area! As of 7PM (with light snow still falling) Reagan National has recorded 9.0 inches of snow, making this the biggest snow storm the city has seen since the January 2016 blizzard. That storm dumped nearly 18 inches of snow. The daily snow fall record for today is 6.4” of snow has also squashed with a total of 7.1 inches recorded.

The Winter Storm Warnings for the metro region will run until midnight. The snow is tapering off across the city and points north and west. Lingering heavy bursts over the southeastern viewing area will end by 11PM. A general 6 to 10 inches of snow has fallen with a few "sweet spots" that could be near double digits.

With the additionally snowfall on the ground and cold temperatures, anticipate more widespread slick spots, especially on those neighborhood roads and side-streets. Therefore, I believe a lot of school-kids will be having an extended weekend. Some schools have already called off and you can get the latest on our website here.

If this snow wasn’t enough, the models are hinting at the potential for more wintry weather by next weekend stay tuned.
