1/16 DC/VA/MD Weather Outlook


A clipper low will be coming through and could cause some light snow in the northern third of the area tonight. Currently sleet and snow and light rain are showing on Radar in Southeastern Virginia. SIGNIFICANT SNOWSTORM POSSIBLE NEXT WEEKEND!
Summary:
Interesting weather day in some ways. Biggest concern is the missing of the precipitation in Southeastern Virginia (I discussed this with another person in the forum at http://www.midatlanticweather.com/bb yesterday!) This will need to be monitored as sleet and snow are possible there today. A clipper will be coming through this evening and quickly spread very light snow for the northern third of Virginia and Maryland. This COULD dust the area and provide as much as a 1 inch of snow near the Pennsylvania and Maryland border. We will be extremely chilly the next few days with nighttime lows possibly getting as cold as any this season! The week remains 5-10 degrees below normal with another clipper possibly affecting us Wednesday. BIGGER things could be in storm for the region next weekend. It is likely the best chance of snow this season! To describe the scenario I will defer to wxrisk as it gets very technically involved. All I want to really note is that there is a potential for a significant to major snowstorm next weekend for the region. Please stay alert!
