Scattered rain and snow through the state, mainly south, today. 1-3” possible in far Southwest and in the Higher elevations of the Appalachians. Elsewhere, no substantial accumulations expected. Today into tomorrow will be the coldest temperatures we have for about a week. A very potent storm system will rock the middle of the country next week and swing a strong cold front through the region. Temperatures behind the front will cool back down.
Sorry for not being more consistent with daily updates. I have been busy at home with plumbing issues that were finally remedied last night! Today is the most “exciting” day o this week weather wise. A low pressure system is traversing the area along the North Carolina and Virginia border. Temperatures are marginally cold enough for snow, sleet, and freezing rain especially in the southwest. Southern areas should see periods of rain mixed with snow and sleet at times, but temps will be very close to freezing or slightly above. Area wide, snow and rain showers could occur, with no appreciable accumulations except the Southwest, as well as mountainous areas where 1-3” will possibly occur.
Weather looking much milder for the next 6 to seven days. Then a very powerful storm looks to affect the middle part of the country and then its trailing cold front should sweep through the area with heavy rains and even possible thunderstorms, some of which could be severe, next Thursday. After this, a colder pattern should set up.

Comment on “2/3 DC/MD/VA Weather Outlook”
This is a great blog!
Funny, I used to live in DC and NOVA area and used to wish for snow like a Calvin and Hobbes cartoon. We had that ‘Govt. Closes’ policy and having worked for the Govt and in related fields, I used to watch the weather channel a lot. In fact I had weather.com as my hompage and got to meet with an Exec VP from the weather channel on a lobbying visit to the hill.
I was all ready to express my enthusiasm for weather and the fact they had a great new website and the guy went into a speech about how some ppl were such fanatics and losers they spent their free time watching the weather channel over and over.
A sad day indeed, but at least the Senator laughed, right? Screw him too…we had a big snow that year.
Nothing like sledding down the hill in front of the Capitol, drinking jack daniels out of the bottle and having a big snowball fight. Power to the people eh…hell even my friend’s black terrier dog named Dorian got into the mix of sledding and snow fights and maybe a sip of two of the whiskey b/c it was so darn cold. :)
