Overnight Snow Will Snarl Morning Commute, May Cancel School

January 25, 2015

By Kevin O’Rourke

 

A weather system with the potential to drop six-inches of snow or more on Germantown will begin moving into the area late Sunday night and into Monday.

   Then National Weather Service has issued a Winter Weather Advisory for Germantown and all of Montgomery County which goes into effect at 10:00 pm Sunday, Jan 25 and goes 6:00 pm on Monday, Jan. 26.  Snow will begin late Sunday night and continue through late Monday afternoon, said the NWS. “The heaviest snowfall will occur between midnight and late Monday morning,” according to the NWS advisory. Accumulations of two- to four-inches are expected through Montgomery County.

   On Saturday, the NWS issued a Winter Storm Watch for the Northwestern portion of Montgomery County, calling for four- to six-inches of snow. However, on Sunday morning the NWS issued the Winter Weather Advisory, which lowered accumulations, but extended the possibility for two- to four-inches of snow to the entire county.

   On Sunday morning MoCoSnow.com released a three-pencil prediction for this storm, which means there is a 50 percent chance Montgomery County Public Schools will closed on Monday, and very good chance of a delay.”

   According to the NWS Winter Weather Advisory, “Roads will be snow covered and slippery with visibilities reduced to near one-quarter mile at times. The combination of snow covered roads and low visibility will make travelling dangerous.”

   "Right now,” said MoCoSnow.com, “I am not feeling as confident about the potential for the whole county to get between four- six-inches, which is what the Winter Storm Watch states. Warmer temperatures may lead to some rain at first before eventually giving way to snow. The snow should fall hardest between midnight and through the morning commute.

   “Even though there’s a chance for parts of the county to only have an inch of snow on the ground when we wake up tomorrow, the timing of when it will fall is sure to disrupt the morning commute,” said MoCoSnow.com.
