As Thoughts Turn to Spring, a Winter Storm Warning Issued for Germantown Area
Just as the daffodils and crocus were blooming, as Little League baseball teams were drafted and first practices planned, the National Weather Service has issued a Winter Storm Warning for the Germantown area and all of Montgomery County from 2:00 pm today, Monday, March 13 through 7:00 pm Tuesday, March 14.
“Snow will overspread the area Monday evening and persist through Tuesday morning,” said the National Weather Service. While the NWS is calling for “Snow accumulation of 6 to 10 inches” some areas including parts of Germantown, Boyds, Clarksburg, and Damascus may receive 12 to 14 inches of snow, according to other reports.
“The heavy snow will make many roads impassable and may produce power outages due to the weight of the snow on tree limbs and power lines,” said NWS. “Winds will be northeast 10 to 15 mph with gusts up to 20 mph.”
Of course, Germantown Pulse’s winter weather partner has a prediction about the storm what effect it will have on the MCPS on Tuesday. It can be read here.
