More Snow on the Way for Washington…And Maybe Atlanta

The Washington, DC area is recovering from its second major snowstorm of the season. At Dulles Airport, the 32.4 inches of snow was the highest two-day total ever recorded. 17.8 inches of snow was measured at Reagan National Airport. That was the second highest total recorded at that location, and the fourth highest total snowfall recorded in Washington. (26 inches was the record DC snowfall, in 1922.)

While the Baltimore airport only recorded 24.8 inches of snow, just to the northwest, in Elkridge, they seem to have gotten more snow than anywhere else, with 34.8 inches.

The bad news for the Washington area is that they are again under a winter storm warning, with a prediction of an additional 10 to 20 inches between noon Tuesday and Wednesday evening. In Atlanta, the storm will only be rain, with the possibility of some snow in the Northeast Georgia mountains.

The real threat for Georgia is this weekend. when another in the series of storms comes barreling north. Some models are indicating several inches of snow, with the snowfall possibly extending into middle and south Georgia. There’s not a lot of confidence in the forecast yet, which is why the early forecast for the weekend doesn’t mention it. But, the models are best at the predictable, and this winter has certainly not been that. Keep your eyes on the forecast as it gets closer to Friday.
