A major snowstorm forecast for Monday had winter-weary residents of the D.C. area bracing for as much as a foot of snow just a day after temperatures cracked the 50-degree mark.
A fast-moving storm system that affected much of the eastern United States buffeted the D.C. area with rain and wind Thursday, leaving behind downed trees, thousands of power outages and unofficial reports of at least three tornadoes touching down in Maryland.
He said the snow should be moderate, but steady until 2-4 p.m., stacking up to around 8 inches in most areas despite a weekend that saw temperatures at Ronald Reagan Washington National Airport climb to 52 degrees Sunday.
"It is quite normal," Mr. Witt said. "March is a transition month — almost spring, but it is still technically winter."
