Snow continues to batter the DC area
The latest snowfall totals are in as of 7am and Reagan National stands at 4.3”, Dulles International 5.9” and BWI Thurgood Marshall at 4.6”. Most totals so far are near 3 to 6 inches with plenty more on the way for the Metro and points south. With 4.3" in DC, this is now the biggest storm since January 2016. The heaviest snow last year was 4.1" on March 21st. The record is 6.4" set in 1982 on this day, so that still stands for now.
Snowfall rates are beginning to pick up locally and will continue through midday. Road conditions are rough so please try to remain off the roadways through the day. Instead, enjoy the snow, which we should see 6-8 inches around the Metro and 8 to possibly 10 inches in our southern zones.
This appears to be the beginning of winter, with two more chances LATER THIS WEEK Thursday and again into next weekend. Very cold air looks to make it’s way into our area for MLK Jr. weekend.
