A Winter Storm Watch is in effect for the entire viewing area beginning today at 4 P.M. and expiring on Monday at 4 P.M. Sunday afternoon we will begin to see rain spread across the 4State, with a change over to sleet/freezing rain in the later evening hours. Most of us will change completely over to snow by early Monday morning. PA counties directly North of the viewing area could see 4"-8" while counties South of the Mason-Dixon line could see 8"-14". As of now, the heaviest snowfall (toward the 14" end of the spectrum) will occur in Northern Virginia and in the District of Columbia. This storm has moved South in weather models for the last 48 hours, so the heavier snow band could fall even further South by the afternoon. Please see attached snowfall map, time line, and Winter Storm Watch graphics along with this post.
TODAY: Afternoon rain, slowly changing over to wintry mix/snow by midnight. HIGH: 41, LOW: 21. Winds: North 6-12 MPH.
MONDAY: A wintry mix will change completely over to snow by Monday morning. HIGH: 24, LOW: 8.
TUESDAY: Mostly sunny and still cold. HIGH: 27, LOW: 10.
