Before yesterday, DCA had gone 1073 days without seeing 2+ inches of snow…they officially picked up 3.8”. Other parts of the region pick up a half a foot or more as you can see from this snow totals map.


This morning the storm has pulled out and with a cold breeze and a solid snow pack on the ground, temps are in the teens and single digits area wide. However, it feels more like -5 to -15 when you factor in the winds; hence the wind-chill advisory in effect until noon. Despite plenty of sunshine we will struggle to make it out of the teens with bitter feels like readings. While not as intense, the cold lingers into tomorrow with partly cloudy skies and highs into the 20s. There could be a few flurries but nothing of consequence. If the forecast stays on track we should make it above freezing by the weekend. Stay warm and safe and have a great day!
