Wednesday Storm Update (Tuesday Afternoon Update)

You called it! Something we’re all used to in our area has occurred– Winter Disappointment.

The storm that once had the potential to bring double digit snow totals to our area now doesn’t look nearly as strong.

4:55pm UPDATE: Winter Storm Warning for N/NW MoCo tomorrow. Winter Weather Advisory for C/S/SE MoCo

Total snow and sleet accumulations of 3 to 6 inches and ice accumulations of up to one tenth of an inch in the warning area and 1 to 3 inches and ice accumulations of around one tenth of
an inch in the advisory area.

The National Weather Service, along with most local networks, have dropped their projected snow totals for much of the area.
Here’s how things look now:

• Parts of MoCo closer to DC (Bethesda/Silver Spring) will get anywhere between a coating to two inches of snow.

• As you move up towards Rockville, you get to 2-3”

• Gaithersburg/Germantown/Olney is looking like 3-5”

• Clarksburg/Damascus looks to be in the 6-8” range

This is definitely not a non-event, it’s just not what many snow lovers were hoping for.

We’ll keep an eye on things in case there are further changes prior to the start tomorrow morning and will have an update for you tonight.
