We have a Flood Watch in effect from Sunday afternoon through late Sunday night for SE Montgomery County, DC, SE Howard County, Prince George’s County and most of Northern Va. that could end with some flakes early Monday morning.
With just about everyone predicting above average snow this winter, and some predicting amounts as high as 40 inches for our area, we wanted to take a look back at the 2013-2014 school year, when MCPS had ten snow days.
“More Snow, Chance For Blizzards” – FOX5 “Big Winter” – NBC4 “More snow this winter than any other season over the last 5 years” – ABC7 “Above Average Snowfall For Entire DMV” – WUSA9. Today we’re going to take a look at how much snow each of the four major networks in the DC region are projecting for this winter to see who comes closest.
With above average snowfall predicted for the region, we wanted to share with you the criteria for different winter weather alerts in the DC Metro Area, courtesy of the National Weather Service: (more…)
Montgomery County has activated a Hypothermia Alert for extreme cold from 4 pm, Monday, 11/27, through Tuesday, 11/28.
WUSA 9 is the last of the four major networks to release its 2023-2024 Winter Forecast in a well-produced video that does a great job explaining why they believe there will be “above average snowfall for the entire DMV” including a relatively early first snow of the season. Our recap can be seen below:
Montgomery County has activated a Hypothermia Alert for extreme cold from 1am to 9am Mon., 11/20. Expect the wind chill to be below 32° it’s suggested to Wear layers if you go outside.
The First Weather Alert Team at ABC 7 has released its 2023-2024 Winter Weather forecast, and as just about every other winter outlook so far, they’re predicting higher than average snow for the region. Let’s recap the outlook below:
“Folks living along the I-95 corridor from Washington to Boston, who saw a lack of wintry precipitation last winter, should experience quite the opposite, with lots of rain/sleet and snowstorms to contend with.” With many local weather forecasters projecting higher than average snow, the Farmers’ Almanac Winter Outlook for 2023-2024 seems to fall in line.
As the slightly chilly weekend concludes with a Sunday in the low to mid 50s and mostly sunny skies, a more seasonable to mild week awaits for the area.
The MoCoSnow team has been recapping Winter Weather Outlooks. So far, Fox 5 was first, stating that it’s likely we get “more snow, more chances for blizzards” in their outlook. NBC Washington was next and expects a “big winter” with lots of snow in their outlook. The Washington Post’s Capital Weather Gang (CWG), a group of that includes meteorologists, forecasters, weather experts, writers, and more, has released its Winter Weather Outlook with more snow projected than we’ve had in the last five years.
