Discussion

A “clipper” system is spreading snow into the Mid-Atlantic region this morning and accumulations of 1-3 inches are likely in the District and areas to the north by early tonight. The “clipper” system will intensify as it reaches the relatively warm waters of the western Atlantic Ocean and this could result in an enhanced snowfall later today across central Delaware and southern New Jersey where 3-5 inches can accumulate. The snow can be briefly mixed with rain or sleet at the onset and then there can be a period of freezing drizzle this evening after the snow winds down.

Looking ahead, another storm could affect the region early this weekend and this one carries much more potential as it would be of the “coastal” variety with considerably more in the way of moisture. It is still too early to tell if the precipitation from this storm would be snow or a mixture of rain and snow in the I-95 corridor as temperatures will be only marginally cold; however, the potential does exist for significant snow accumulations. Another storm may follow quickly by early next week.
