Winter just seems like it doesn't want to end. It's hard to say this as I feel like it never really started with such pitiful snow amounts this year. Once again, measureable snow was limited to the western suburbs of D.C. The farther west the better, with multiple inches reported in the mountains of West Virginia, to a couple of inches reported along the Blue Ridge.
As far as snowfall totals are concerned across the region, here are some of the totals that were reported to the NWS Sterling office.
Madison, VA: 3.8"
Culpeper, VA: 3.3"
Frostburg, MD: 2.8"
Winchester, VA: 2.0"
Fredericksburg, VA: 1.5"
Leonardtown, MD: 1.1"
- Snow reports into the NWS Sterling today
Snow was lighter than the forecast models predicted last night, which was expected with the ample amount of dry air in the region as well as the warm ground temperaturers. Closer to the D.C. Metro, most snow melted on contact with the surface but did allow for a light coating on vehicles.
