Today in Weather History: Snow in 1990
* Full Forecast *
Once late March arrives and average high temperatures are around 60 degrees, it's easy to forget it can snow this time of year. Just 19 years ago on this date, the region received 1-6" of heavy, wet snow... with the higher amounts in elevated areas to the north and west. Dulles Airport officially received 3" (plus one more inch on 3/25) just one day after it was 68 degrees! Reagan National picked up 2" and it was 71 the previous day. While this turn of events in 1990 was remarkable, it pales in comparison to the abrupt change experienced in the northern plains yesterday where 70s were replaced by 20s and blizzard conditions in 24 hours.
