If you have not had your fill of winter weather yet, here’s some at fantastic news for you: A major storm is in store for the D.C. region on Saturday with frigid weather poised to continue through the weekend.
First, the near-term. Weak winds and a lack of overcast will send temperatures plummeting to their lowest values yet Wednesday, Thursday and Friday. City-dwellers will wake up Thursday morning to temperatures in the teens, while sheltered valleys and rural areas could drop to near zero. Bundle up, limit exposure and beware of black ice on the roads.
It’s about to get Blustering Cold!
A winter storm is set to bring snow to the area Friday and very early Saturday, but the most significant impacts are expected along the Atlantic coast. The local meteorologist is continuing to watch the storm’s track as the forecast develops. And to tell you the truth, it’s not getting any better!
There’s an 80% chance of snow Friday and Saturday. The frigid cold will stay with us before, during and after the snow.
Prince George’s County Public Schools will dismiss two hours early Friday because of the weather.
On Friday, expect dry weather at sunrise with temperatures in the 30s.
By noon, the winter storm could begin to effect the D.C. area. It will likely start a light wintry mix amid temps in the mid-30s. However, it could also start as only rain, which would cut down on any potential snow accumulation by causing flakes to melt as they begin falling.
