Light snow and a mix may usher in New Year
Disorganized storm keeps confidence low
* Wickedly windy and cold: Full Forecast *
Next Chance of Accumulating Snow: Thu-Fri
Probability of Accumulating Snow (1" or more): 40%
Most Likely Potential Impact:
A weak weather system is anticipated to move through the region Thursday before exploding into a major storm off the Northeast coast on Friday. The current thinking is the storm will intensify too late to bring heavy precipitation to the D.C. area, but we could see a period of light snow Thursday morning changing to a mix of sleet and rain during the afternoon and perhaps back to snow later Thursday night.
The first bout of snow Thursday morning may bring a dusting to an inch or so, and assuming the rain/sleet changes back to snow late Thursday night, another inch or so is possible by Friday.
Here are total accumulation odds (from both possible periods of snow):
Less than 1": 60%
Confidence is still very low so stay tuned for additional updates.
The Snow Lover's Crystal Ball appears when the potential exists for accumulating snow beyond 24 to 36 hours.
