Take a look at the snow totals from around the region yesterday: we had a solid 4” to 8” as anticipated…yay team!

ZZZZZ

Now having snow in March is not unusual, but having snow with an arctic air mass entrenched across our area in March, that is unusual…or at least fairly rare. That is the situation we have found ourselves in though; and overnight all of the snow on the ground has frozen solid – meaning lots of slick spots to start the day – be careful! There will be plenty of sunshine for the next couple of days, but temperatures will remain well below average. Many areas will not climb out of the 20s today, but should recover into the middle 30s by Wednesday and Thursday. Model guidance continues to simulate an area of low pressure well southeast of our area late Thursday. We believe a touch of light rain or snow is possible by Thursday night, but should be NBD. Temperatures will warm into the middle 40s on Friday and could reach the lower 50s by Saturday…and highs in the lower 50s are the average highs for the first week of March. Have a great day – be safe!

AM Record Lows: DCA = 4º | IAD = 6º | BWI = 5º
