GFS Reverts Back to Westward Track

Unfortunately for those of us who love snow the latest run of the GFS operational model shifted the track of Monday and Tuesday’s storm system back to the west.

Bottom Line: The European and GFS models are now in agreement in track dashing hopes for a significant snowfall across the Washington region.

Based upon the latest models it looks likely that the metropolitan area should receive between one and four inches of snow before a change over to sleet and freezing rain on Monday.

Snow showers would begin on Sunday evening and would continue through the overnight hours into Monday morning. The snow would then change to sleet and freezing rain around noon on Monday (possibly earlier the further south and east you go from DC).

The wintry mix of precipitation will change over to rain Monday evening into the day on Tuesday with temperatures likely climbing into the upper 40s to near 50° by afternoon.
