Discussion

The first significant snow event of the season is now getting underway in parts of the Mid-Atlantic region. Low pressure will intensify rapidly today as it tracks quickly northeastward along the coastline. This major storm is expected to pass just east of Long island early tonight and then should reach Nova Scotia by early Thursday. The rain/snow line will drop from the northwest to the southeast over the next few hours resulting in a gradual changeover of the precipitation to all snow. The mid-day and afternoon hours should feature primarily snow N and W of the District and it will be of the heavy and wet variety. Don't be surprised if there is some "thundersnow" as well later today given the quick intensification of the storm. The snow ends late in the day and Thanksgiving Day will remain on the cold side with few morning snow showers likely. Accumulations for this event should end up on the order of 1-3 inches in and around the District, 3-6 inches in the northern and western suburbs and a coating to an inch just to the south and east of DC. One final word of caution, given the combination of rain this morning which will be followed by an extended period of heavy, wet snow in the far N and W suburbs later today, there can be some downed tree limbs due to the excessive weight and perhaps even some power outages.
