After a very odd chain of events with the weather model simulations, it appears as though the chances for a formidable snowstorm are increasing for the DC area (especially eastern portions of the area). The current issue is that there are still one or two models that suggest an out-to-sea track, therefore preventing more significant snowfall. However, a vast majority of the other computer models suggest a track that could produce significant amounts of snowfall.
Currently, The Capital Region Pulse weather team is going with a 4-8 inch forecast for the DC Metro area with less to the west and more to the east. However, these amounts could be shifted in either direction as the event draws closer.
Please stay tuned for a full update.
