TIMELINE: Potential winter weather-maker in the DMV this weekend

2 min read

Latest computer model runs agree on snow potential for DMV.

WASHINGTON — As we enter 2024, latest long-range computer model trends point to a pattern shift to potentially more wintry weather.

Holiday travel through Tuesday

For the remainder of holiday travel, New Year’s Day through Tuesday, expect scattered rain showers… and even some wet snow… for Monday, but above-freezing temperatures should preclude anything more than wet roads for travels back home from holiday outings. 


Meanwhile, Tuesday is looking fabulous with ample sunshine and highs in the 40s.

Wednesday through Friday

Wednesday, expect another dry day with highs in the 40s before another batch of rain and snow showers move through on Thursday… again, likely with above-freezing temperatures.

Friday, sunshine will return with highs in the 40s again.

WEEKEND WINTER WEATHER POTENTIAL

For the upcoming weekend, computer models point to a major pattern shift to more wintry weather. Both the reliable long-range GFS, American Computer Model and European Computer Model, call for the potential of an impactful storm system.

The European and American Computer Models both call for snow or a mixture of rain and snow depending on eventual storm track developing late Saturday and lasting through Sunday. 



Although it is too early to pinpoint any type of snowfall accumulation at this early juncture and changes in the forecast are likely, these models are forecasting the possibility of some significant snowfall for at least portions of the DMV with potential of the most impact north and west over the higher elevations, with the prospect of even some slippery roads into the Monday morning commute.



This forecast is evolving so we encourage you to check back in with us over the next several days for forecast updates.
