12:19 pm
it is not just the temperatures, but the wind. it is always the worse. i hate the wind. you know what? this is not -- you kind of nailed it before. this is not a huge major storm by any means but it is going to be an impact for your travel for sure. and a nuisance more than anything. for tuesday, so we definitely have that yellow weather alert. and we are expecting a trace, up to a few inches, for the district. and where you are going to see the higher totals are areas to the north, where it is going to be a little bit colder, for longer, to support some more snow. we are dealing with a little bit of rain and snow here. so the forecast, it is a little bit more challenging, a lot more challenging, i should say, than that bliz, where we already had the -- blizzard, where we already had the cold air locked in place. it was determining how much snow. now we have to figure out where it will snow, and not just rain, and where is the ground going to be cold enough to see anything commute versus the grassy surface and the roads and lots to go with the forecast. we will have an update on the future cast, in about 20 minutes. check out the wusa 9 app and we will have the updated forecast there for this afternoon before
12:20 pm
topper arrives. 44 degrees right now. pretty nice out there. some sunshine. and the temperatures in the 40s across the board. so as we see our first round of precipitation, later on this evening, it is going to be just rain. and unless you're off to the north, where temperatures will fall to the 30s, and that will be a little bit of snow. so showers push on through and it is after the midnight hour, that around the district, it is a changeover that occur, and right now, we are just kind of sandwiched in between two systems, and this clipper will move on through, and let's see how it is a mess back here. and waves of showers, snow showers coming on through for tomorrow, and in fact, as it starts to develop, a little bit off the coast, we will get some backlash here, and we might each even see more snow to end the day tomorrow. and both impacts will be impacted and not like the blizzard with a steady snow all the time. and there will be periods of snow showers, sometimes more moderate and most of the time, it will be pretty light. so here is the updated snowfall amounts. 1-2 inches for the district. and as we head farther south, that is not much. that's for sure. a lot of rain, and a slushy wet
12:21 pm
snow. it is up here where it is going to be a lot colder and that's where we are going to see more significant snowfall, right near the mason-dixon line, and 5:30 tonight, showers push on through and a lot of drive through the drive home. and see how it is already snowing here, it is still 35 degrees. so not much will accumulate on the roads just yet but the grassy surfaces for sure. as we head through the overnight hours, see how it breaks apart, and still snowing for first thing tomorrow morning for areas to the north. as we head through the day, periods of snow showers pushing on through. and watch what happens, later on in the night, and we have a big band, a burst of snow, coming on through, for the evening. and if this doesn't happen, we are going to see a lot less snow, if that low pressure kind of pulls away a little bit faster. we won't see the extra snow add on to the totals. if it does, we will see a couple of inches as the map projects for the district. and off to the north. so here is the first alert live doppler. tracking this for you throughout the next couple of hours. and on the wusa 9 app. 37 tomorrow.
