PM Update: Front Brings Rain Changing to Snow

By Ian Livingston

Temps tumble; Second wintry Tuesday in a row tomorrow?

* Umbrella In the Snow? | By 10 PM: SchoolCast *

More mild temperatures visited the area today, but that's all about to change. Highs that reached into the low and mid 50s will be a memory by later this evening because cold air will quickly invade behind a cold front moving through the area now. In addition to falling temperatures and gusty winds, rain showers will rapidly change to snow showers with a quick coating possible this evening. Any additional accumulation overnight and tomorrow?

Tonight: Rain showers this evening will quickly change to snow showers. Temperatures will settle to around or just below freezing for lows. Although ground temperatures are relatively high due to the recent warmth, a coating to an inch of snow is possible by morning especially in the typically cold spots and any areas that get heavier bursts.

Tomorrow (Tuesday): A disturbance in the upper atmosphere will swing through, keeping the chance for snow going through the day. With temperatures not likely to go up much (only to about the mid 30s), we'll be cold enough for snow to stick during any heavier periods of precipitation.

Local Snow Probabilities (late tonight through tomorrow)...

70%: 3" or less
   *35%: Less than 1"
   *35%: 1-3"
20%: 3-6"
10%: 6"+

The greatest accumulations will be on grassy and elevated surfaces, though roads may see some as well. Snow totals will likely be higher east of the Chesapeake and northeast into eastern Pennsylvania and New Jersey, where advisories and watches have been posted.

See Jason Samenow's forecast through early next week. Check back later for SchoolCast and an update if needed.

London Snow: Add London to the list (as if that list isn't long enough already) of places that have seen more snow than D.C. this winter. As of Monday evening (Europe), London had already seen about 8" of snow, making this the largest snowfall in about 18 years.

What's it looking like down here in Albemarle County (more specifically zip 22935)? Dark clouds have moved in and wind/cool air is taking over, no precip yet. Will there be a snow forecast map tonight? Thanks!

Thanks. Great Post by the way. I see that 1-3 inches isn't out of the game. Even 6+. Is there any chance of a complete mistake and we have a lot more than expected. More than 5 inches. Everobody has their own opinions and it makes it confusing. Somebody had a good point of saying 6+ isnt out of the game

Posted by: whateva1 | February 2, 2009 4:47 PM | Report abuse

Hoya, there's a lot of potential for this to bust low or even high with regard to snowfall. It's a relatively small-scale feature expected to produce the accumulation and it can shift pretty easily either direction. I think 70% chance of less than 3" should give you a pretty good idea of what to expect for now.

Posted by: Ian-CapitalWeatherGang | February 2, 2009 4:49 PM | Report abuse

Sounds like we're just east of Jim on the other side of the Blue Ridge -- can see them right now (well mostly obscured by clouds now). We're a few miles from the Green county border in Albemarle. No precip here yet.

Still, if we get 3" that will be the biggest snowfall of the season for most places in the metro area. And with our expectations having been lowered over the weekend, it would come as a pleasant surprise! Right now (5 PM) it's fallen to 40 after a high of 55 here in Greenbelt. I think that by the time any precip gets here it should be of the frozen variety.

There's a big slug of moisture in the lower midlands of South Carolina right now, seems to be moving NE but the leading edge has just pushed north of Columbia. It almost looks like a deformation zone; the front is just pushing into Charlotte. If this area holds up and continues its present movement, it will reach Raleigh in a few hours, maybe Richmond before midnight and possibly even parts of the DC area after that. When I last looked at the radar, this area of precip was in south central Georgia and didn't look like much of anything. The NAM and especially the GFS seemed to have picked up on it. This could well be our snow source once it moves into the colder surface/aloft air that should be well in place in DC later this evening.

I'm a closet weather geek who has been lurking here for a long time. I just wanted to tell you guys how much I appreciate your detailed and non-hyped weather forecasts. My students today were all commenting how their Blackboard widgets said they were going to get a lot of snow tonight (I think it's powered by Accuweather....) and I showed them this blog. I think you'll have 28 more schoolcast readers tonight ;-).

Posted by: HistoryTchr | February 2, 2009 6:35 PM | Report abuse

I see a lot of moisture coming our way from the south and west. The precip band over central SC has weakened but the frontal band now moving through Charlotte and the SC upstate has strengthened considerably and since everything is moving SW to NE right now and there is still a lot of precip to our west, I think the answer to our snow accumulation is not in the western Atlantic, it's a lot closer to home. Check out the radars, Greer, Raleigh, Blacksburg, even Sterling although I think it's adjusted for snow echoes. And Greer isn't the southern edge of this precipitation either. We have an interesting night ahead.

Here in Sterling, it rained a little, quickly followed by a change-over at around 7:50. Light snow right now; no accumulation on anything as of yet.

The thing with these coastals is that I can never see where the snow is coming from until it's on the radar. This is just precipitation from the cold front... not from the coastal, so I still feel in the dark.
