Winter weather brings blizzard-like conditions, winter storm advisory to DC area

Storm Team4 meteorologist Briana Bermensolo says that falling temperatures and increasing snow totals will bring through blizzard-like conditions to the region.

A weekend of time changes, spring weather and winter snows are in the cards for the DC region this Saturday. Here’s what you need to know.

A winter weather advisory goes into effect Saturday morning at 7 am for most of the region, as areas of Virginia’s Blue Ridge prepare for a blizzard that could bring snow accumulations of up to 10 inches.

Across the DC area, snow totals are expected to vary, with much of DC seeing roughly two inches of snow.

Storm Team4 meteorologist Briana Bermensolo says that falling temperatures and increasing snow totals will bring through blizzard-like conditions to the region.

“Gusty winds could create blowing snow conditions for drivers,” she said. “Wind speeds will be anywhere between 40-60 mph through Saturday afternoon and evening.”

But there is no need to worry about staying too long in our winter wonderland. Monday, as clocks begin to spring forward and daylight saving time begins, our weather will make the change too.
