Light Snow, Cold Air Again Delaying Spring’s Start
LANHAM, Md. (WNEW) — It’s a week away from April but instead of talking about spring flowers, cold air and snow are the talk of the town — again.
Monday’s temperatures are expected to be much colder than usual for this time of year, and that cold air could help produce some snow when a storm moves through the D.C.-Baltimore region Tuesday.
The National Weather Service says a Winter Weather Advisory will be in effect from 2 a.m. to midnight Tuesday. The D.C./Baltimore area could see up to 4 inches of snow.
The light snow may not accumulate on major roadways, but some grassy and non-paved areas could turn white, even as most people in the mid-Atlantic are ready for spring after after a rough winter.
Temperatures will be in the 30s throughout the day Tuesday before dipping into the 20s overnight. Wednesday will be sunny but cold, with temperatures again failing to reach 40 degrees.
The area will finally begin to warm up on Thursday, and more seasonal temperatures are expected throughout the weekend.
