DC Area to See First Snow of Year Tuesday


The Washington, D.C. region is expecting its first snowfall of 2020 Tuesday afternoon. But it will only be slushy, wet snow that is likely to cause light traffic congestion.

Most of the snow will be gathering on grassy areas, with total amounts nearly one or two inches, which means there will be no major disruption due to weather conditions. North and west of the D.C. metro area, however, may see two to three inches of snow.

There will also be light and variable wind around six mph in the morning, according to the National Weather Service.

Because the snow is expected to arrive around lunchtime, there will probably not be any school delays and cancellations, NBC Washington meteorologist Chuck Bell told WTOP.

Freezing temperatures early in the morning will be followed by upper 30s to approximately 40 degrees at the time of the precipitation.

Tuesday night will be “mostly cloudy, then gradually becoming mostly clear, with a low around 31,” the National Weather Service says, adding that the next day, January 8, will be sunny, with a high near 44.
