An area of moisture across the Deep South will come close enough to the DC metro region to generate 1-3 inches during the late night and early morning hours. Substantially more snow will occur from this southern storm well to the southeast of the District with 6 inches of accumulation possible in Richmond, VA and nearly a foot in Norfolk, VA. Snow should break out in the DC metro region during the wee hours of the morning (1-4am) and continue until late morning – perfect timing to mess up the morning commute. The lower snowfall totals in this 1-3 range will occur in the northern and western suburbs and the higher amounts should occur inside the District and on its southern and eastern sides. Any slight shift in the storm track could still have a big impact on the forecasted snowfall estimates so stay tuned.
