Tuesday Morning Prediction for Early Release

The latest guidance shows a little more snow falling in our area than what was predicted yesterday.

As you can see in the maps below, MoCo is in the 1-3” or 2-4” range with Capital Weather Gang even giving us a 20% chance at a boom scenario of 3-5 inches. Maps courtesy of NBC4, ABC7, WUSA9, and Capital Weather Gang.

The winter weather is expected to move into our area around noon, but won’t get heavy enough to cause issues until 2/3pm-6pm…which could cause major issues for the evening commute.

For anyone inquiring about the MCPS boundary analysis meeting at Walter Johnson, one of our reader kindly pointed out that an MCPS spokesperson made it known that “community use of public buildings doesn’t necessarily align with school closures/early release. So, even if schools release early, the meeting tomorrow at WJ could still go on and MCPS will announce if it is canceled.”

Due to the timing of this one, I personally think the best bet would be to go with the early release. It counts as a full day of school and keeps kids off the roads at a time that can potentially get dangerous.

      Well it’s the timing not the amount soooo it doesn’t matter if it’s 1 or 6 inches

    Close the schools

    Loudoun, Rappahannock, Warren, Winchester, Frederick VA, Shenandoah all closed!

    Prince William, Fairfax, Fauquier, Manassas Park, Manassas City, Culpepper and Howard are all still on releases!

    Still waiting on Montgomery, Arlington, Page, Frederick MD, Washington, Baltimore, and Baltimore City

    I think Prince George, Charles, Anne Arundel, Calvert, DC and Saint Mary counties will stay open and have nothing happen!

      Hey Alex, as a fellow weather enthusiast myself and a student in MCPS, I love the content you’re posting:)

      Do you think there is a chance of a delay tomorrow?

  7. Linking these to app? on January 7, 2020 at 5:20 pm

    Can you please link these into the iOS app? Last year when you did it it was really useful and it made it easy to see when there was new articles.

    • Alex Tsironis on January 7, 2020 at 5:34 pm

      Not at the moment

  8. student in mcps on January 7, 2020 at 9:45 pm
