Punxsutawney Phil was right...winter wasn't done with us yet!
The Mid-Atlantic and Northeast U.S. are prepping for a storm that's turning out to be the most significant snowfall most of us have seen this winter. New York and Boston are preparing for a full-on blizzard with nearly 2 feet of snow forecast to fall with winds approaching 50 MPH.
Around Washington, DC and Baltimore, it's not expected to be a blizzard even though some locations in our area will see upwards of 10-12" of snow between Monday night and Tuesday midday.
A Winter Storm Warning is in effect for areas mostly west of I-95 from 7pm Monday through 2pm Tuesday. The rain snow line is expected to set up right along I-95 with a hard cutover to rain/sleet for southern Maryland and other points south.
The storm is expected to reach our area between 6-9pm but will have light impact as temperatures will still be above freezing. After 9pm, temps begin to drop and snow accumulations begins to become more of a concern.
The National Weather Service has had trouble determining exactly where the rain/snow line will set up. The storm is expected to track closer to the coast, which may cause more warm air to pull into the area, causing lower snow amounts for the DC Metro.
