Arlington Weather: Snow Coming Wednesday—Maybe
The DC metro area could see a good amount of snow mid-week.
Arlington could get its first really significant snow of the season this week, some models are predicting.
“This is the best looking snow threat in two years but there is way too much uncertainty in the forecast for this to be ‘in the bag,’" the Capital Weather Gang said late Friday. A European model run showed the potential for a snowstorm from Richmond to Philadelphia—including the DC metro area.
The Weather Channel gives Wednesday a 70 percent chance of snow with a high temperature of 36 degrees.
ABC7’s Doug Hill wrote Friday, “some models are showing the low pressure system forming into a storm that might threaten the midatlantic by midweek. It is too soon to tell is the storm would pass out to sea or bring us a mix of rain and snow on Wednesday.”
At this point last year, DC had gotten about 20 percent of the snowfall it would in a normal winter, according to data analyzed by the Capital Weather Gang. There wasn’t much improvement by the end of the season. The 2012 – 2013 season hasn’t been much better for snow fans.
Of course, it’s not spring yet – and we’ve had snow fall well into April in the past.In fact, DC got half an inch of snow on April 28, 1898.
