The nor'easter storm is organizing off the coast today and should be just close enough and cold enough to bring some of the first snowflakes of the season to Washington, D.C. Most of the rain and snow will be along and east of I-95 late this afternoon and by this evening it will likely be just snow. However, the snow should be light enough and the ground warm enough, that no accumulation on the roads will be expected. Minor accumulations on grassy areas north and east of town is possible. A winter weather advisory is in effect for Northeastern Maryland, including Baltimore for 1-2" of snowfall this afternoon through Thursday morning as shown here. The latest weather computer models continue to bring the brunt of the storm to the north. The New Jersey and New York coasts will experience wind gusts of 40-60mph. Hundreds of flights have been cancelled there. Our winds here will gust to 25-30 miles per hour. The storm will wind down for the metro tonight and it should be dry by Thursday morning. It will remain cloudy and breezy, though. Once we get through the effects of this system, a wonderful warm up can be expected by the weekend. The jetstream will push to our north, allowing for more seasonable temperatures around 60 degrees.
