Heavy Rain Sunday Night… Major Snowstorm on Wednesday?

Latest European Model Snowfall Forecast drops over 10″ of snow across the Washington Region!

After a partly cloudy Sunday with temperatures in the middle 50s rain will overspread the Washington Area during the evening hours, continuing through the overnight.  Rain may be heavy at times Sunday night before ending just before or during Monday’s morning rush hour.  Temperatures on Monday will soar into the 70s before a cold front passes through the area during the evening.

The GFS and European forecast models are currently showing the potential of accumulating snow impacting the Washington Region on Wednesday. Confidence in the exact track of this low pressure system is low but both models at least show the potential for some snowfall across our region.

Major snowstorms in the Washington Area during the month of November are rare, but not impossible. A shift in track too far to the east of this potential Nor’easter could spare much of area from any snowfall and a track closer to the coast could produce much heavier accumulations in our area. Wednesday is one of the busiest travel days of the year… stay tuned for updates.
