6:43PM: The live blog is about wrapped up for the night. Accumulating snow has ended across the region, with record daily snows at Dulles and Reagan Airports.
Tonight, low temperatures will fall into the single digits in the suburbs to low teens inside the beltway. Anything that isn't shoveled will freeze solid by tomorrow morning. Highs tomorrow should approach the 30 degree mark but with mostly sunny skies and a higher March sun angle, there should still be plenty of melting.
Temperatures should move into the 40s Saturday and 50s Sunday. Have a good night, enjoy the snow and stay warm!
5:46PM: Snowfall totals across the area have mainly been in the 4" to 10" range, with the highest north and west of D.C.
Here is the latest snowfall report list from the National Weather Service
5:14PM: Snow will gradually end over the next hour with a few flurries remaining through the evening. Reagan National recorded 4.6" for the day breaking the record of 4.4" from 1888.
3:16PM: The back edge of the snow is beginning to show up on Live Doppler Radar along the I-81 corridor. Light snow or flurries may continue to persist there but should taper off over the next hour.
Snow should begin to taper in the D.C. Metro around 5pm and closer to the Bay by 6pm. Patches of flurries or light snow showers may be possible through the early evening.
2:41PM: Sorry for the hiatus! The back edge of the snow is finally starting to show up on our StormWatch 7 Super Doppler. The heaviest snow is now south and east of D.C. and will continue to be there through the remainder of the event.
That being said, there is still moderate to heavy snow in D.C. I expect another few inches around the D.C. Metro before the snow ends closer to 5pm or 6pm this evening.
Roads have a lot of slush on them right now, which will more than likely freeze solid in many places overnight with lows in the single digits to low teens. Record lows are expected to be broken at Dulles Airport and BWI Airport tomorrow morning.
12:09PM: A mesoscale discussion for heavy snow was again issued for the D.C. area concerning heavy snow banding continuing to push through the Metro and eventually south through the evening hours. As areas to the south and east haven't experienced as much snow yet, they aren't out of the woods yet and measureable snow is still expected.
11:25AM: The heaviest snow bands remain just north and west of D.C. and appear like they will move into the D.C. Metro over the next hour. Snowfall rates of 1 to 2 inches per hour will be possible.
Snow still looks like it will come to an end closer to 5pm or 6pm this afternoon. Here is a link to the latest snowfall totals.
10:43 AM: Heaviest snowfall shaded in green. Snowfall rates of 1" an hour in these locations. This includes you, in Leesburg, Great Falls, Poolesville, Gaithersburg, and Rockville.
