Winter Storm Watch Issued for Metro Area

By Jamie Jones

* Our Full Forecast | Snow Lover's Crystal Ball: Storm Details *

The National Weather Service Office in Sterling has issued a Winter Storm Watch for MOST of the capital region. The watch covers the District and points north and west, extends eastward to the Chesapeake Bay, and includes close-in areas immediately to the south of D.C. [map available here]. The Weather Service is forecasting snow to start late Monday night or early Tuesday morning and fall during the day on Tuesday, with a possible change to sleet or freezing rain Tuesday afternoon or evening, then changing to freezing rain and rain for late Tuesday night and Wednesday. [full watch text here].

As we've been discussing for the past few days, this is a very complicated situation that is still developing (aren't all our winter events this way??). Stay tuned for the latest updates throughout the day.
