Two to Four Inches of Snow Forecast for Tuesday, Dec. 10

Predicted Snow Falls for Dec. 10, 2013

Predicted snow amounts for the storm that will hit the D.C. region on Tuesday, Dec. 10, 2013. Two to four inches expected–with up to five inches possible in parts of Fairfax.

Get ready for round two! Another winter storm will hit the region starting early Tuesday morning through the afternoon. The storm will impact tomorrow morning’s commute.

While the National Weather Service will continue to refine its forecast, they are predicting between two to four inches of snow—possibly up to five inches in some parts of the county depending on the storm’s track.

Sometime between 4 to 6 a.m., the storm will start as a mix of sleet and snow, changing to all snow later in the morning. Snow is expected to continue falling through the afternoon from about 2 to 4 p.m.

Stay tuned to weather forecasts for the latest. Government and courts operating status will be announced later when available.

This is a good time to get your digital preparedness kit ready, and here are a few tips:

  • Make sure your mobile phone has an electric charger, inverter or solar charger.
  • Know how to use your phone to communicate; for example, using WiFi versus a carrier’s network has      differences; texting takes less bandwidth than phone calls.
  • Charge your digital camera or buy batteries for your film camera if you need to document storm damage      afterwards.
  • Save important phone numbers to your phone.
