hard to believe we're talking about heavier snow south of town in march but we are. a little heavier snow moving northeastward. so this is probably the best chance of seeing the heavier band of snow overnight into early tomorrow morning as the storm pulls away, and some of the models try and put a band to montgomery and frederick and loudoun county, not sold on that but still talking about 1" or so, and these will move across the northern neck and southern maryland. right now, this is live with snow in dale city and quantico and silver spring and gaps in the radar, too. it's not snowing everywhere. light snow, 1-2" and bus stop temperatures in the 30s and there could be slick spots. temps below freezing early in the morning and that's your yellow weather alert, and then chilly and then some
7:22 pm
sun tomorrow. typical march. some in the morning and some in the afternoon and everything is melted in the afternoon. 37 downtown and snow in gaithersburg and frederick and we're close to the 32-degree mark. so notice the gap in the southeast. it's the not a big storm but a little bit of snow left over, and that's it. the temps will be critical, 31 in leeburg and sterling and 31 in bowie, so it will be a littley bit -- little bit slick. but then it will move out to sea. and by 1:00, generally temperatures back in the low 40s with sunshine and more sunshine by evening. so the day planner goes like this, snow to start and increasing sun and 40 by 1:00 p.m. saturday, another quick system, not a huge
7:23 pm
