We all know that weather predictions are often inaccurate. However, the national weather service is now forecasting very substantial to historic snowfall amounts for the D.C. area Friday into Saturday night or even Sunday morning, so it’s better safe than sorry!
Their current models suggest snow is most likely to begin between late morning and early afternoon Friday January 22, although a late afternoon onset isn’t out of the question.
Accumulation predictions are very substantial, as high as 30 inches in some cases, with more plausible totals in the 12 to 20 inch range.
