WASHINGTON (CBSDC/AP)- Isn’t the phrase “the first snow of the season” supposed to refer to winter?
Well, not this time. The first snow of spring hit the area hard Sunday night into Monday morning, dropping a wintry mix that coated the roads around the Metro area with slush. Wet snow fell until at about noon and is expected to mix with rain as temperatures rise later in the day.
The National Weather Service generally reported 3 to 5 inches in the Baltimore-Washington area, with snowfall ending Monday afternoon.
The storm moved in from the Midwest, where it dumped 6 to 10 inches over central Indiana and has canceled dozens of flights, according to NWS.
The Winter Weather Advisories for much of the area, including the District, have been discontinued.
The weather service says up to 16 inches of snow have fallen in far western Maryland.
