Bracing for “The Big One”

Ok, so it’s a pretty wimpy forecast by most standards, but that doesn’t mean I’m not excited about a good ‘ol snowfall.  From wtop.com:

Snow: ‘Biggest’ storm of year arrives
WASHINGTON – Wednesday morning’s snow was just a tease. The real snow will start falling Wednesday afternoon and evening, bringing most of the D.C. metro area between 4 inches and 6 inches of snow.

The region will see the heaviest snowfall between 5 p.m. and 10 p.m. Hill says this “very efficient snow-maker” will produce heavy, wet snow that could fall at a rate of 2 inches per hour.

“It will become heavy at times. It looks like it will be out of here around midnight or shortly thereafter. But during that short period, a lot of heavy snow is going to fall,” Hill says.

The National Weather Service issued a winter weather advisory is in effect until 7 a.m. Thursday.

  1. Today is one of those days when we see and hear it all. Snow, sleet, rain, and good old Thunder too. I would say the weather is multi-tasking 🙂
