Snow Heads into DC Metro Area



    People around the DC Metro area are seeing snowflakes falling, but Storm Team4 says those flakes won’t amount to much.

    A weather front moving into the region, combined with falling temperatures, is creating snow. Meteorologist Tom Keirein says areas near Washington could see up to 1 inch of new powder on the ground. Areas to the north and west could get up to 2 inches.

    Keirein also warns that roads may become slick with the light snow.

    The snow isn’t expecting to last long with dry air following. Meteorologist Amelia Segal said the early part of the week will be very cold with high temperatures ten to 15 degrees below average.

    If you are making plans for Valentine’s Day, look for something indoors as it is expected to be chilly and breezy with some light snow or rain possible.
