Could we have a larger snow storm this week? Maybe.
While the National Weather Service (NWS) has not yet issued a hazard alert for snow or winter weather conditions, some forecasting models show that we can receive some sizable snow accumulation on Wednesday night and into Thursday.
“The ingredients are coming together for the development of a truly massive storm system off the eastern coastline of the United States over the next 48 hours. If the storm were to take a track closer to the coastline, it would have the potential to rival some of the bigger blizzards our region has seen in terms of potential snowfall,” stated a Fox 5 D.C. weather report.
The NWS has said there is a 40% chance of light snow after 8 p.m. on Wednesday and more snow on Thursday before noon.
The area could see between one to six inches of snow, depending on how the storm moves.
Regardless of possible snow, the temperatures will remain frigid, with a low of 23 degrees on Wednesday night and a low of 11 degrees on Thursday night.
In the next 24 hours, the trajectory of the storm will become clearer. We’ll keep you posted as we learn more.
