2 spring snow waves but what will they do in the Valley?

2 spring snow waves but what will they do in the Valley?”

According to the National Weather Service, a Winter Storm Watch means that there is potential for significant snow, sleet, or ice accumulations that may impact travel.

Storm Team 4 forecasters expect the current active weather pattern may continue through the rest of March, meaning the month will be less a lamb and more the nor'easter-filled lion we saw most of these past few weeks.

Despite the January-like forecast it will technically be spring shortly after noon Tuesday.

The vernal (spring) equinox is when the sun crosses over the equator and appears directly overhead at some point on that imaginary line.

Wednesday night: Rain and snow likely before 8 p.m., then a chance of snow between till 2 a.m. The northern and northwestern tip of the state may get quite a deep dump of snow from back-to-back systems.

(Updated at 5:15 p.m.) A Winter Storm Watch has been issued for the D.C. area as Arlington County crews prepare for several inches of snow.

Thursday: Mostly cloudy, with a high near 44. "This one will be a tough one to nail down, but we'll get there". "It's probably going to be sometime well into April" before springlike weather arrives. Washington will begin with rain and freezing rain Tuesday, but may end up with 2 to 4 inches of snow, said Brian Hurley, a senior branch forecaster at the U.S.

A third lies in between those two models but leans toward the latter.

Wednesday: Snow likely. Cloudy, with a high near 38.

South of the turnpike could see the highest accumulations...but even that will depend on the track of the secondary low Tuesday night.

Adding to the situation is an abundance of cold air available to turn any precipitation into snow, said Gary Best, a meteorologist at Hometown Forecast Services Inc.in Nashua, New Hampshire. Tuesday's high will be 35, almost 20 degrees below normal. Chance of precipitation is 80 percent. The high Wednesday is also in the mid-30s.

So we may have more of the "white-grass, wet-roads" snowfall many areas experienced on March 12, unless of course heavy banding sets up over a location for a while.
