Dry Slot Kills Totals from DC on north and west… but we still get a snow day out of it.
A dry slot has developed on the radar across the Shenandoah Valley and while some of the short range models fill this in others do not. The snow is pretty and at least it will cover the grass across the area but the snow is so dry that you can’t even make a snowman or snow ball with it. The Good News: We still get a snow day.

The latest North American Model (NAM) also shows a dry slot developing from 10PM to Midnight but then fills it back in (somewhat) with snow from about Midnight through 4 or 5 AM.
