This will be the third snow event in just six days for the DC metro region which is quite an accomplishment for any time of year, and especially for this early in the winter season. Low pressure will move from the lower Mississippi Valley on Saturday northeastward to off the Northeast coast by early Sunday where it will strengthen. Snow will develop in the DC metro region early Saturday and then change to a wintry mix followed by plain rain by later in the day as slightly milder air moves into the region. The precipitation will wind down late Saturday night and then more cold and dry weather will develop for the early part of next week.
This should be more of a “conventional” snow event around here with higher snowfall amounts as one goes farther and farther north and west of I-95. Accumulations on Saturday are likely to fall in the 1-3 inch range in and around the immediate DC metro region, an inch or less south and east of the District, but 3-6 inches are possible in the far northern and western suburbs across northern Maryland and western sections of Virginia.
