Preliminary Snow Map for Clipper

A clipper will track across the Mid-Atlantic Friday morning likely bringing a period of moderate snow. The exact track will be key to how much can accumulate in the Washington Region on Friday.

  • Based on the latest high-resolution forecast model below, snow showers or a period of moderate, accumulating snow could develop pre-dawn in the mountains and move into the DC Area during the morning rush hour.  Scattered Snow Squalls are possible Friday afternoon with gusty winds and bitterly cold wind chills.
