What was expected to be a light rain event on Veterans Day in 1987 turned into a freak snowstorm in the Washington, D.C. Metropolitan Area. A narrow band of heavy snow developed right over the 95 corridor with nearly one foot of snow accumulating at National airport and upwards of 17″ in parts of Prince Georges county, Maryland. All time November snow records were broken at National airport. The day before featured mostly sunny skies with highs in the 60s!
Monday (the observed Veterans Day holiday) will feature increasing clouds and mild conditions with highs in the mid to upper 60s.
- A strong cold front will move through the D.C. Area Monday night and Tuesday accompanied by rain showers.
- Highs on Tuesday through Friday will range between 45 and 50 degrees!
