NWS: Three to Five Inches of Snow Possible Thursday

The State Highway Administration has warned motorists to prepare for a “difficult” Thursday afternoon commute.

Regions within the Capital Beltway could see three to five inches of snow Thursday, and northern Montgomery County could see one to three inches.

According to the National Weather Service, a low-pressure system is expected to move through the region Thursday afternoon, bringing with it the possibility for snow and hazardous weather.

The State Highway Administration has urged motorists to prepare for a “difficult” Thursday afternoon commute.

Montgomery County has been placed under a winter storm watch, in effect from Thursday morning to Thursday night.

But there are those who doubt the snow will be as bad as the NWS predicts.

In a series of posts and tweets, The Washington Post’s Capital Weather Gang said the storm had the potential to produce “shovelable snow” but went on to say the storm:

“ … also has the potential to skirt us to the south giving us only light precipitation or even none at all (note: the latest European model shows NO snow for D.C. and points north).”
