The last time Washington received an inch or more of snow was in January, 2011. This "storm" will remain south of DC so chances of getting even 1" within the Beltway are rapidly decreasing. The storm center will stay well south of our area and snowfall in the metropolitan area will be 1" or less between 4PM and 9PM. .2 or 3 inches will be possible across parts of Southern MD and Stafford and Spotsylvania Counties in VA. Much more significant accumulations will fall farther south and southwest in the Old Dominion. Skies will clear overnight. Any slushy spots will be icy for the morning rush hour so watch out for that.
Skies Sunny Sunny and breezy weather is forecast tomorrow . Sunshine and milder temperatures here on Saturday, a few more clouds on Sunday. Much colder highs only in the 30s and flurries possible on Inauguration Day Monday.
