Just as Washington D.C. is starting to dig out from Saturday’s blizzard, there’s the prospect of more on the way:
In the aftermath of the weekend’s massive snowstorm, the region came to grips with the fact that digging out will take days, even as more potentially paralyzing winter weather appeared headed this way by Tuesday.
Snow might be falling again by the time the first snowplow arrives to carve a path into some neighborhoods isolated by about two feet of snow from the storm that ended Saturday. Although the National Weather Service said the next storm had the “potential for more than five inches,” other forecasts indicated that as much as a foot might fall.
“Four inches is a pretty good bet, and eight inches or more isn’t out of the question,” said Dan Stillman, a meteorologist with The Washington Post’s Capital Weather Gang. “It will start out Tuesday afternoon or evening, possibly as a mix of sleet and snow. But after that, it will be mainly snow, with the heaviest overnight into Wednesday morning.”
Ugh. Just, ugh.
