Cold front could bring some morning flurries
The D.C. area could see its first snowflakes Tuesday, as a cold front brings a sudden drop in temperatures.
National Weather Service meteorologist Heather Sheffield predicted a 40 percent chance of snow between 6 and 8 a.m. Tuesday as the result of an Arctic cold front moving through the area.
“It’s going to be a lot of cold air,” Ms. Sheffield said. “We’re expecting rain showers to switch over to rain and snow. It’ll probably be a mix.”
Ms. Sheffield said no accumulation is predicted because the surface temperature is above freezing. The mercury likely won’t get above 40 degrees Tuesday, Ms. Sheffield said, but once the cold front moves through, “it should warm up by the end of the week.”
