WASHINGTON — It’s going to be a busy week for winter weather this week for the DMV.
We’ll get another brush with winter weather Sunday night, Monday morning, and Tuesday morning for some areas. For now, it looks like the most impactful winter weather event will be Thursday with a chance for snow, a wintry mix, then rain.
Sunday Night – Monday
Rain moves into the region Sunday night, but areas north and west of D.C. will have the best chance for picking up on light accumulations of ice due to freezing rain. Some sleet is possible as well.
The National Weather Service has issued a Winter Weather Advisory, with includes areas such as Frederick, Northern Loudon and Northern Montgomery counties from Sunday night until 10 a.m. Monday.
Key timing – Sunday night after 9 pm until Monday 10 a.m.
Monday Night – Tuesday Morning
As low pressure passes by the area, we’ll see rain again Monday night with a slight chance for a wintry mix north of D.C. once again. So far no advisories have been issued for Monday night.
In the extended forecast, Thursday is shaping up to a winter mess for the DMV with snow, a wintry mix then rain.
Overnight, Wednesday night it will likely start as snow which will last through Thursday morning.
Thursday morning will start with snow for most areas, but between late Thursday morning and early afternoon, we’ll begin to see a transition to a wintry mix and then rain.
The GFS model shows the transition to a wintry mix then rain much faster than the European model.
The European model keeps it cold enough for snow for most of the morning in D.C. and areas north, with a mix south of DC and all rain in Southern Maryland.
Here’s a look at both models below.
