The Sunday storm is finally beginning to form in south Texas.  Some of the latest simulations indicate the track of this storm is more and more likely to be well to the south of DC.  That is the reason the winter strom watch is out for areas 30-40 miles southwest and west of Washington.  Dry mild air will be over us again Saturday.  Any impact from this system on Sunday, will not be until Sunday afternoon into the evening.  By Monday, everything will be gone.  With our mild winter, the gound and roads are unusually warm and any impact of any snow in the DC area should be minimal, especailly with the President's Day holiday on Monday.  We'll keep you posted, but the trend is certainly keeping this system more to our South and looking less likely we'll see any snow accumulation from this storm but check back for our updates.
