Arlington County and much of the D.C. region is under a Winter Storm Watch, with close to a half-foot of snow possible over the weekend.
The National Weather Service issued the watch this afternoon, saying that the snow will fall from late Saturday night through the afternoon of Super Bowl Sunday. That’s despite today’s relative warmth, in the mid-50s.
The Washington Post’s Capital Weather Gang is a bit more conservative in its forecast, currently calling for 1-3 inches.
JUST IN: Our first call for snow accumulation Saturday night and Sunday. This will likely need to be revised/fine-tuned. To understand our current rationale, read the accompanying text/article here: https://t.co/u9BFiBZfCF pic.twitter.com/kDejYmgYgD
