Forecast and Prediction for Tuesday, January 7th, 2020
Temperatures have been warm and they’ll get warm again as we approach the weekend, but anyone who has been in our area for a winter or two should know how often and quickly our weather fluctuates.
It’ll be cold overnight, with temps dipping into the mid 20s before nearing 40° around noon tomorrow as the rain moves in. They’ll dip a few degrees as rain turns to snow around 1 or 2pm tomorrow afternoon.
This is a quick moving storm and will only last a few hours. The heaviest snow will likely fall around 4pm and it should be out of our area by about 7pm.
Most news outlets expect between a coating to 2 inches of snow, but some models suggest we could see 3 or 4 (less likely than what the maps show). Maps courtesy of the National Weather Service, ABC7, WUSA9, and Capital Weather Gang.
Snow will make roads wet at first, but things could get a little slick if enough falls.
Pencil Prediction: 2 Pencils (with early release taking the place of delay for this one). I expect after-school activities to be cancelled.
