Some Flurries. How Fun!

By Capital Weather Gang

Just when you least expect it, snow flurries are moving through the D.C. area this morning. Actually, we had this in our forecasts for today every day this week. Until today, of course. Drats! Anyway, don't get too excited -- they won't last long.

Any more flakes in the forecast? If you're on our main page, just scroll down for our Express & Detailed forecast. Otherwise, click here. And let us know below if you've seen flurries where you are.

Snowing to beat the band here in Old Town Alexandria - of course it snows AFTER it's above freezing - and I can see a ribbon of blue sky to the NW.

It snowed off and on for about 45 minutes downtown by Gallery Place - it made a nice contrast at times, with the sun shining through an open patch reflecting off some pretty heavy flurries. All done now though.. but it was enough to distract this Bama boy from work for a good while!

we had a pretty heavy burst of snow here a little while ago in culpeper va. enough to get the ground wet not white.

Nice little 10:30 AM surprise...though, why do we always have to get plain old RAIN whenever the substantial moisture advects in??? As I posted yesterday, we just had to forgo what would have been another 1996/2003-style snowstorm!

All we seem to get this year are the little itty bitty flurries, even when there's a little thunder added to the mix as per New Years Eve. The big storms are boring old RAINMONSTERS...we're even missing the ice and mix here in NoVa!!!

Looking ahead...the prelim. chart shows something interesting at the mouth of the Bay on my birthday a week hence next Thursday. Hope it sticks...the weather figures to be cold enough. Maybe we'll get at least a few inches accumulation.

Sorry for the repeat...the system told me it had "rejected" my initial posting, so I re-posted

Ack! Mea culpa for not correctly predicting this rather fluke-ish band of light snowfall that was not depicted well at all by the computer models. Meteorology is a bit of an inexact science at times.
