Cold front could bring some morn­ing flur­ries

The Washington Times Daily - - Metro - THE METRO AREA

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.”
