Only question today is how much snow will fall.

Today:
Snow, Heavy @ Times, Ending Early Aft, Gusty & Cold (4” North to up to 6”+ South)
Temperatures: 20s, Falling
Wind: North 10-20+ mph
Overnight:
Clear and Frigid
Lows: 0°-10°
Wind: N 5-10 mph
Tomorrow:
Mostly Sunny, Bitterly Cold
Highs: Around 30°
Wind: NE 5-10 mph

Snow will continue through the morning and into the afternoon hours. It is becoming apparent that areas north of Washington will receive less snow than  areas south of Washington....satellite and radar data makes that rather obvious. The biggest question this morning is how much snow will fall. Right now, we are sticking with the totals noted below but I think most areas will tend to be near the lower end of the ranges. ZZZZZ

Gusty winds will also cause issues, reducing visibility, placing wind chills in the teens and even single digit, and leading to possible power outages.

Snow will taper off this afternoon from west to east across the area. Temperatures will slowly fall during the day. In fact, temperatures may drop into the single digits tonights. So whatever snow falls will not melt as salt loses it's effect at such low temperature levels.ZZZZZ

In the wake of the storm, sunny and cold weather is on tap for Tuesday with highs in the mid to upper 20s. We should rebound a bit by Wednesday with highs climbing back into the mid 30s.
