UPDATED: The National Weather Service has removed the Winter Storm Watch and replaced it with a Winter Weather Advisory. This will go into effect from 3 a.m. until 2 p.m. on Tuesday.
Snow is expected to be heavy at times and totals should reach three to five inches by the time it is all over. This snowfall is expected to impact the morning rush and create conditions that could result in more closings and delays on Tuesday morning.
WASHINGTON, December 9, 2013 — The Washington D.C. region is dealing with the remains of its first winter storm on Monday, navigating dangerous roadways, school closings and airport delays. The National Weather Service is calling for another round of snow for the area Tuesday morning.
All precipitation from the first storm is expected to come to an end by early afternoon with no additional accumulation. The temperatures are expected to rise to the lower 40s so some of the accumulated ice will melt but as evening comes, the temperatures will start to fall again.
An upper level low will pass through the area tomorrow and with it bring another chance for snow in the early morning Tuesday and continuing through the rest of the day. With temperatures remaining so close to the freezing mark, areas could receive snow, freezing rain or just rain.
Minor accumulations of one to three inches are expected. More details will emerge as the system develops.
