WASHINGTON (7News) — UPDATED Saturday, Jan. 6, 2024 at 8:00 p.m.
Widespread winter weather alerts that were posted for the DMV for today have been allowed to expire. But this system has brought rain, freezing rain, sleet and snow all across the area. While no snow fell in the DC metro, snowfall totals between 2 and 6 inches are coming in from areas along I-81 which is where Winter Storm Warnings and Advisories are in effect.
A majority of the winter weather advisories and warnings have been allowed to expires on schedule at 7 PM.
While more of the D.C. metro missed out on accumulating snow (this time), a trace was reported at both Dulles and Reagan airports. As well as 3 to 7 inches in areas along I-81.
Areas of freezing rain and drizzle accumulated in areas from Central Virginia to Western Maryland on the range of around 0.10" to a trace.
Any snow that accumulated in the D.C. metro will melt as temperatures warm and precipitation falls as rain. Some flooding may occur in southern Maryland around Prince George's, St. Mary's, Charles and Calvert counties.
Looking ahead, this weekend's storm looks to be the first of several as an active weather pattern emerges across the Lower 48.
Another system will follow on Tuesday of next week. As of now, that system will be warmer with mild temperatures in the 50s, resulting in all rain for the area. High winds are expected with that system, too.
