    Just call it winter's last stand.

    Spring Snow Confusing DC Commuters

    [DC] Spring Snow Confusing DC Commuters
    Across the DC area, drivers dealt with slick roads Tuesday from an unwelcome Spring snowfall. News4 Transportation Reporter Adam Tuss has a look at the evening commute from Merrifield, Va.

    A winter weather advisory was in effect for most of the D.C. area Tuesday through 8 p.m., with an advisory for Anne Arundel and Charles counties and the city of Baltimore lasting through midnight.

    Accumulation ranged from 1-2 inches in the D.C. metro area and 2-4 inches west of Interstate 95.

    Snow Falls on Closed Cherry Blossoms

    [DC] Snow Falls on Tightly Closed Cherry Blossoms
    Residents and tourists alike weren't so enthused by Tuesday's springtime snow.

    While this was a relatively low-impact event, the start of the snow coincided with the morning rush hour, becoming a nuisance for commuters.

    "I live out in Loudoun County, and the commute, what normally would be an hour, sometimes turns into two or three hours," said one commuter. "My kids had 14 days, I think, without school" this winter.

    It's likely the last snowfall of the season, Storm Team4 Chief Meteorologist Doug Kammerer said.

    The snow comes five days after the start of the National Cherry Blossom Festival, but down along the Tidal Basin, flakes collected on tightly-closed buds.

    "We're here for spring from Chicago, and we thought we were leaving the snow behind," a visitor told News4's Megan McGrath.

    Wednesday will be chilly, with a high near 40, but it should be back to feeling like spring again by the weekend.
