Snow begins to melt as temperatures rise above freezing on Monday

Accumulating snow finally ending over southern Maryland and our Winter Weather Advisory will come down this morning. This was our biggest snowfall event since the Blizzard of 2016 and record snowfall for the date (Jan13) at Ronald Reagan Washington National AP (DCA) just over 8 inches and Dulles International AP (IAD) and close to 8 inches.

Expect a mixture of clouds and sunshine on Monday with temperatures rising above freezing late this morning. We will see a little snow melt today but then more of the refreeze overnight. In fact, each day this week, allow extra time for those icy spots. Many school districts have cancellations today and may see delays Tuesday and Wednesday. You can get the latest closings and delays on our website here.

Looking ahead, another chance for light snow is possible Thursday evening and another storm with a possible wintry mix and freezing rain next weekend. That storm could be far reaching through the Mid-Atlantic on Martin Luther King Jr. weekend and for the Women’s March in DC on the Jan. 21.
