Coastal Storm Threat Is End-of-Week Wildcard
Main threat delayed to late Thursday and Friday
* Full Forecast | Later: What's Causing Snow to Decline? *
Next Chance of Accumulating Snow: Thursday-Friday
Probability of Accumulating Snow: 30%
Most Likely Potential Impact:
We still have an interesting situation on our hands. After seeing exceptional warmth tomorrow (60s!), the computer weather models want to send cold air back down into the D.C. area just ahead of a possible second storm system that rides up along the East Coast late Thursday into Friday.
Keep reading for a summary of the possible storm scenarios...
Several scenarios remain possible, including the storm tracking far enough inland to tap mild air from the ocean resulting in more rain than snow or, less likely, heading farther enough out to sea to mostly avoid our area. Snow lovers should hope for a track in the middle of these two possibilities -- but even then the cold air will be in limited supply.
Needless to say, a whole lot needs to be resolved. Since the timing has been pushed back to late Thursday and Friday, it gives us more time to get a better handle on this potential snow accumulation threat. Unfortunately, there are more questions than answers right now, so please check back for frequent updates in the next two days.
The Snow Lover's Crystal Ball appears when the potential exists for accumulating snow beyond 24 to 36 hours.
