After an exceptionally cold Saturday with just enough snow to whiten the ground, today is similarly chilly. Saturday's average temperature of 26 and dew point numbers in the single digits made it one of the coldest days of the season. The snow showers of last evening tallied less than an inch - just a trace was recorded at Dulles, 0.2" at Reagan National, and 0.7" in College Park - but more light snow is falling this morning. A broad swath of snow is affecting the southern DC suburbs from Front Royal to Manassas to Dale City to LaPlata. Some heavier bands could cover the ground, but most of the activity will produce little to no accumulation. Look for that snowy pattern to continue through the afternoon hours.
With winds from the west kicking up this evening, nighttime lows in the lower 20s will feel even colder. Those breezy winds will continue into Monday, making daytime highs in the mid 30s feel like the 20s and teens. Yet another clipper system like the ones we had on Friday and last night could spread light snow again into the DC area on Monday night and Tuesday. Thereafter, somewhat milder conditions will return for the end of the week with partly sunny skies and highs in the mid to upper 40s. Enjoy your Super Bowl Sunday!
