DC public schools to be closed Wednesday due to weather

UK snow Snow and rain maps

Snow that began falling Tuesday night continued Wednesday morning, making travel hard in some areas and leading several school systems to cancel classes.

Temperatures will fall to around freezing. The counter-clockwise spin around lows, and the clockwise spin around highs, means our winds will be northerly today drawing in a cooler and drier air mass. Current thinking for snowfall accumulations are below...less south / more north.

North of 1-80: This area will likely see the lowest amounts.

For the first time in quite some time, we are expecting above normal temperatures.

Our Severe Weather Alert Day continues as scattered, light rain/snow mix is still pushing through the mountains.

According to the National Weather Service, about an inch of rain is likely on Tuesday before the precipitation turns into snow and sleet that evening.

More accumulation and slick, snow-covered roads are expected in the higher elevations. Highs will make a run at 50.




We will continue to monitor this event and will keep you posted on further changes. Expect tidal flooding again today near the early afternoon high tide.

Thursday, there is a slight chance of showers in the morning before skies gradually turn from mostly cloudy to sunny.

Experts are also warning people not to put away their winter thermals just yet, as we approach the start of the British summertime this weekend.

Most of the modeling indicates the next storm system approaching late Saturday. Highs will return to the 80s this weekend with small rain chances for the weekend.

Saturday: Showers, mainly before 8 a.m. Lows will be in the upper 20s Wednesday night. Monday we will have a mix of clouds and sunshine. The breeze does too.

Temperatures will hover in the mid 30s this afternoon, then drop slowly into the lower 30s this evening and overnight.
