8:00 – Instant metropolitan area updated at the winter storm warning
This early morning, the National Weather Service has updated the district, Fairfax, Prince George & # 39; s, Loudoun and the southern county of Montgomery to a winter storm warning (from a winter weather warning). The notice takes effect at 16:00 Saturday, when the snow should start, until 13:00 on Sundays.

FORECAST IN DETAIL
It has been a while since we have seen a considerable snowstorm in the middle of winter. We have to go back to Blizzard 2016, in fact. Although this does not intend to rival in any way, it's coming at first to take advantage of the cold air and, if you like snow, maximize the fun. Today it will remain quiet until the morning, but the snow should fill more and more the air as we head towards the sunset.

Today (Saturday): It's a mostly cloudy start, but maybe enough to let in the light. (I'll check the comments to see how it was dawn.) Clouds thicken during the morning and snow can start to break up in the air. The air is dry, so it will take a while for it to get saturated, but the flakes begin to reach the ground as soon as in the early afternoon in the west and south-west parts of the area, and then progress eastward from there. At sunset, most or all of the region should see snow, with perhaps about an inch on the ground in south and west points, and more like a half-inch dusting or so elsewhere. High temperatures in the low and mid-30s fall below freezing when the snow starts. Confidence : Medium
Tonight: We will continue to see the snow during the evening, and in general should resume with intensity deeper into the night. It can also lighten up sometimes, but it seems that the heaviest snow in the storm can arrive in the night. Some inches may accumulate during the night and untreated roads will become snowy and slippery. Temperatures are mostly in the mid-20s. The winds are light. Confidence: Medium

Tomorrow (Sunday): Shovels and plows seem to be busy in the morning. The accumulation of snow may continue for a while, with quantities settling in the range of three to six inches for most of the local area – further south and less to the north. The storm should tend to fall when we arrive at noon, if not before, but it could be a slow process to be completely closed. Even once the accumulation has stopped, even the snow should remain in the air during the afternoon. The highs are close to or below the freezing point of most points, with a range of 30 to 30 years in general. Confidence: Medium
Tomorrow evening: The winds are simpler and some snowflakes could linger until the evening. If not, it is calming down as the storm moves away. The minimum values range from the upper part of adolescence to the north and west to the middle or to the top of the 20s in the city and in the southeast. Confidence: Medium
A LOOK AHEAD
The storm is out of here from Monday . Some of the upper-level disturbances remain, however, which can mean a couple of snow showers, and the skies are probably cloudy. We will heat up enough to have a bit of melting, with peaks around 40 or so. Confidence: Medium
Pleasant time is back for Tuesday . Clear skies and calm winds come together with temperatures rising in the mid-1940s, which should keep dripping. Confidence: Medium
