Discussion

A major winter storm is headed to the eastern US for the mid-week with significant ice and snow on the table. High pressure will continue to build into southeastern Canada today and it will result in a dry and very cold day here in the Mid-Atlantic region as we await a significant mid-week storm system. This next storm will likely begin here in the late morning hours on Wednesday with snow or a mix of snow and sleet. There is likely to be a changeover to sleet and/or freezing rain in the afternoon which will continue into the evening hours before a change back to all snow. An ice build-up is likely in many areas before the change back to all snow takes place tomorrow night. Current estimates of snow accumulations by daybreak Thursday are as follows (an it will be compacted by ice): 3-6 inches in the District, 4-8 inches in the nearby N/W suburbs, 6-10 inches in the far N/W suburbs. Snow winds down early Thursday and the rest of the day will feature breezy and very cold conditions and snow showers are possible in the PM hours.
