Snow Flurries, Icy Conditions Continue Tuesday in DC Area

More flurries Tuesday after 2-5 inches of snow fell on Sunday

The same storm that brought the D.C. area snow on Sunday and Monday continued to provide flurries on Tuesday, along with biting wind chills.

Through the remainder of Tuesday, we’ll see scattered snow showers and wet snow on grass. 

Between hit-and-miss snow showers and stronger winds Tuesday, most roads have been able to dry off before temperatures fall below freezing again overnight. There will be little to no additional accumulation.

Bridges, overpasses, ramps, secondary roads and sidewalks could still have slick or icy conditions.

Fredericksburg, Culpeper, Loudoun, Manassas, Manassas Park, Prince William and Stafford schools were closed Tuesday. School districts delayed two hours included Charles County and Washington, D.C.

Other school districts, including Alexandria, Arlington, Fairfax County and Prince George's County, had all-virtual learning. Track all school closures here.

What more is there to say? Behold, giant pandas relish the snow on Jan. 31, 2021.

Metro is running buses on a moderate snow service plan, and the Dupont Circle station entrance on Q Street was closed because of the weather.

Maryland State Police responded to 505 crashes and 245 disabled or abandoned vehicles between 8 a.m. Sunday and 5 a.m. Tuesday.

The sunshine is set to return on Wednesday. More snow showers are possible Wednesday before 8 or 9 a.m. Temperature will reach about 40 degrees but windy conditions will mean wind chills in the 20s and 30s. 

Thursday will be sunny with temperatures in the mid-40s.

Rain showers are looking likely for Friday, mainly during the first half of the day. If the system moves in overnight Thursday, a wintry mix is possible in spots. Temperatures Friday look to warm to near 50, so snow and ice will not be a concern for the D.C. area.

Storm Team4 is tracking the potential for another winter storm Sunday, however the chances are diminishing. 

Next week is set to be even colder, with high temperatures in the 20s.

Last Sunday marked the D.C. area's first significant snowfall in two years. The snow began before dawn and blanketed the area.

Most parts of the D.C. area got 2 to 5 inches of snow on Sunday. More snow had been expected, but we had more dry air than anticipated, Storm Team4’s Doug Kammerer said.
