Final Calls for Today’s Winter Storm
The time has come and we are just a couple hours away from the start of our first winter storm of the season.
Winter Storm Warning for N/NW MoCo (7am today until 4am Thursday) and Winter Weather Advisory for C/S/SE MoCo (10am today until 1am Thursday)
The networks have released their final calls and so has the National Weather Service. Here’s how they look:
ABC7: 2-6” for most about 2/3 of MoCo with the S/SE portion in the “up to 2 inches” category.
NBC4: The most conservative of the forecasts with most of MoCo is in the 1-4” range and a small sliver in the 4-8” range.
Fox5 has most of MoCo in the 3-6” range with the S/SE portion in the 1-3” range.
WUSA9 has the N/NW third of MoCo in the 3-6” range with the rest at 1-3.”
As seen on our featured photo, the National Weather Service has dropped projections for the county.
Areas closer to DC and almost everything south of Rockville is at 1-2” with small parts of Silver Spring at less than an inch.
Gaithersburg/Olney are at 2-3”
Germantown/Poolesville are at 3-4”
Clarksburg/Damascus are at 4-6”
Even though this isn’t the type of snow that many snow lovers wished for, it will almost certainly make travel dangerous throughout the day today and overnight.
Who cares? We still have school and we already trapped in our homes.
