Friday’s computer models continue to advertise an increasing threat of yet another significant winter storm to affect the Mid-Atlantic states Sunday night through Monday afternoon. How much snow will fall? As of now, there is consensus building for the potential of 3 to 6″ of snow with a bulls-eye of 5 to 8″.
Temperatures on Sunday night and Monday may hold in the twenties allowing for the snow to easily stick to untreated roadways.
The Canadian and NAVGEM (Navy Global Environmental Model) forecast models currently show snow falling through Monday’s afternoon/evening rush hour.
Winter Storm Watches may be issued on Saturday for the potential of 5 or more inches of snow.
Whatever falls will melt away rapidly on Wednesday through Friday as temperatures spring back into the 50s and 60s!
March has always featured wild swings in temperatures as spring warmth from the Gulf begins to interact with arctic air over Canada.
