As everyone around Washington, DC is likely aware of by now, “Snowquester” has been and will be a BUST for snow in DC and most of the neighboring counties. I highlighted in my Monday post:
Models have been trending more favorably for accumulating snowfall over the last day, but don’t be surprised to see forecasts waver between now and even while the storm is impacting our area since small shifts in the track of the system will have significant impacts on where the snow/rain line meanders.
Indeed, the East/West (mainly West) oscillation of the rain/snow line has been the determining factor as to whether many of us are experiencing significant accumulations of snow or a minor rain/snow event, leaving most of us with minor (if any) accumulation in and around DC.
This image highlights just how significant the rain/snow line has been with respect to accumulating snowfall in the presence of heavy precipitation.
