WASHINGTON (CBSDC/AP) — Another 1 to 3 inches of snow could fall in the region by Friday night.
WUSA9 Chief Meteorologist Topper Shutt said the snow will begin in the afternoon and might disrupt the evening commute, but areas south of the District will be more affected.
Several Virginia school districts have already announced that they will open 2 hours late or be closed altogether Friday. Federal agencies in the D.C. area are open tomorrow but employees have the option of unscheduled leave or unscheduled telework.
Two snowstorms in one week isn’t the only reminder that winter has settled in.
With temperatures below freezing in much of the region since Monday, the D.C. area is in the midst of its coldest stretch since 2010.
Highs aren’t expected to get above freezing until the weekend as the Arctic air mass has taken over the Mid-Atlantic and Northeast.
Lows have been in the teens overnight but “real feel” temperatures have been in the single digits during the day due to the wind.
