Will the fourth nor'easter hit Washington D.C? We wish we had better news...
The East Coast is preparing for yet another storm this week. That’s right — the fourth blustery mix of wind, snow, and rain is expected, and people are once again running to the store for bread, milk, and eggs — since that’s just what you do. If you live in Washington, D.C. you might be wondering whether or not the fourth nor’easter will hit your area. Here’s what we know so far.
The nor’easter is expected to start on Tuesday, March 20th, bringing a wintry mix to the mid-Atlantic. CNN meteorologist Haley Brink thinks that Washington, D.C. might see a fair amount of snowfall, ranging between three to six inches. But there’s always a chance that the storm will reroute and hit offshore, meaning that the D.C. area may end up missing the impact. Even though the storm is expected to hit soon, it’s been tough to get an accurate read on what, exactly, to expect.
The good news is that if you live in Washington, D.C., you’re probably already prepared for the upcoming snow. The area has battled several wintry weather episodes due to the previous three nor’easters, including a lot of damaging wind during Winter Storm Riley.
However, we totally get it if a potential new storm is bumming you out.
If the fourth nor’easter does hit our nation’s capital, rain is expected tonight, March 19th, and will turn into a snowy mix tomorrow. Temperatures are expected to drop to 35 degrees on Wednesday, March 21st, when more will likely fall. But don’t worry — by Friday, it’s supposed to be sunny with a high of 47 degrees, as reported by The Weather Channel.
Hang in there, guys.
