Light snow fell in much of the region last night, dry enough to sweep away with a broom. Here's a look at how the D.C. area fared.

The highest snowfall totals in the area were 6.7" in Ridge, MD in St. Mary's County and 6.5" in Lusby, MD in Calvert County. Southern Maryland (Charles, Calvert and St. Mary's Counties) was hit the hardest last night, with snowfall reports of 2.5" to 5" commonplace.

Other areas in and around D.C. and points westward saw the general coating to an inch that was expected, and it fell at a time when little disruptions occurred. Anything is better than seeing what happened in Atlanta and parts of Alabama. Did that remind anyone of our commutageddon we had a few years ago?

Reagan National recorded 0.9" of snow last night, which gets the snowfall totals for the winter up to 8.1". This is now 3" more than the last two winters combined! Dulles and BWI Thurgood Marshall only recoded a couple tenths of an inch of snow, but each airport still has above average snowfall for the winter so far.

Milder air will settle back into the region by Friday into the weekend with highs in the 40s Friday and near the 50 degree mark Saturday and Sunday.
