Coastal storm next week has the most snowfall potential so far this winter in D.C.

By Wes Junker January 12 at 3:01 PM

We’ve been seeing the hint of snow in the forecast next week for a few days now. On Tuesday and Wednesday, a low pressure system will likely develop somewhere along the East Coast. Where, exactly, that happens will determine whether the D.C. region will get snow.

As always, there are some uncertainties.

If that storm develops to our south — say, just off the Carolinas’ coast — we will likely see snow as a result. If it develops north of D.C., we will either just get rain or be entirely dry.

The last couple of model runs have trended toward the former scenario, that the low will form to the south, which enhances the chance of snow. However, even if that happens, snow is not a guarantee; it could actually end up being too far south and east to provide us with any precipitation.
