Another pathetic weather event for the miserable snow-hole of DC this season. Everything that could go wrong with this event has. Sleet and Rain will mix with the snow this evening across the DC and Baltimore Metro and all snow (surprise surprise) falls across northern Maryland, but even there, 3″ of accumulation looks like the most they will see.
Further south into the DC Area, by the time temperatures cool enough for snow — the precipitation is out of here (shocker).
In north-central Virginia (Orange and Spotsy counties) across the Potomac river into southern Maryland where Winter Storm Watches are currently posted for the second round of potential snow on Thursday night into Friday … I give it about a 50/50 shot that the moisture will actually make it that far north as the European model has continued to slide that axis of moisture further south with each run.
