WUSA9 meteorologists released their Winter Weather Forecast for the upcoming 2021-2022 winter.
WUSA writes that we have a 70% chance of a weak La Niña. This means the jet stream and severe weather are likely to be farther north, while weather is the south is warmer than usual. We usually have below average snowfall and above average temperatures during La Niña winters.
Much like Fox5 and NBC4, WUSA9 has all of MoCo getting below average snowfall, but they are predicting the most snow overall with almost all of MoCo in the 10”-20” range. Average snowfall for the county is usually at 18”-24.” A small sliver of the county is in the 20”-30” range.
WUSA9 touts that they’ve accurately predicted the first snowfall (1 inch or more) in the DMV for three of the last four years. This year they’re going with December 17th.
