- The Washington Times - Wednesday, February 3, 2010

The National Weather Service on Thursday issued a Winter Storm Warning for Washington and its suburbs, with snow accumulations expected to be between 18 and 24 inches.

The warning, which goes into effect over the entire Washington area at 10 a.m. Friday, is in effect for 36 hours, until 10 p.m. Saturday. The NWS expects the worst of the snow to start at sunset Friday and continue into the early morning hours, making travel at that time “very treacherous.”

The storm likely will be the second this winter to drop more than a foot of snow on the region, as a record-setting snow in December left 20 inches or more across the area.
