This Wednesday, the day will be sunny, calm and cold but a winter system will hit the Washington area tonight, which could leave a wintry mix and possibly up to a couple of inches of sleet and snow.
The region will be under a winter storm warning from Wednesday night until early Friday morning. Here you can see all the weather alerts.
Although there will be plenty of sun, Wednesday’s day will be icy. Already for Thursday, there is a 100% chance of precipitation. These are believed to be primarily winter mix. The Weather Authority recommends extreme caution on the roads, as conditions could be slippery.
The storm will leave the region by mid-Friday, according to the National Weather Service, but its impacts could continue to be seen during the day.
The Weather Authority indicates that between one to three inches of snow is possible before sunrise on Thursday. However, precipitation of sleet and rain will possibly wash away the accumulations.
Areas to the south could see more rain, while areas to the north and west could see more accumulations. Up to six inches of snow are possible in those areas.
In the metropolitan area, the models show a range of between two to four inches, but the forecast is changing and due to the rain these totals may not materialize. Less than two inches is forecast in southern Maryland.
By noon on Friday, we will see some rain. Saturday and Sunday will be dry, sunny but quite cold.
