Snow will develop from south to north between 6 PM and 8 PM.
Heavy snow with continue through Thursday morning with snowfall rates of one to two inches per hour.
**Before any mixing begins along the interstate 95 corridor, there will be a 7 hour window of at least one inch per hour snowfall rates and it is because of this that 8″ of snow at DCA is likely with much higher amounts in our close in suburbs**
Sleet will likely mix in with the snow from the interstate 95 corridor points east during the late morning and afternoon hours on Thursday.

Snow will end from southwest to northeast on Thursday during the late evening hours. Flurries may continue falling through midnight on Friday!
