Reagan National Airport (DCA) has received 7.2 inches of snow (as of 7am) which has made this the 3rd biggest snowstorm ever for this late in the season and 10th biggest March snowstorm ever. Dulles Airport has received 10" of snow so far making this their 2nd biggest March snowstorm ever. Elsewhere, 8" of snow has been reported near BWI Airport, 8" or so in Bethesda, MD and these high amounts extend all the way to the New Jersey coastline where Cape May, NJ has already piled up 7" of snow with more still to come.
Snow will wind down quite slowly around here today with some lingering into the afternoon hours. Low pressure centered off the North Carolina coastline will move out to sea today and cold high pressure will build into the region from the north for tonight and tomorrow. A frontal system could cause some rain showers on Wednesday and then the latter part of the week will get noticeably milder (spring begins on Thursday). This late week warmup will not be part of anything sustained, however, as there is certainly plenty more in the way of cold for at least the next few weeks.
