Washington weather predictions are getting worse and worse. The National Weather Service just issued a winter storm warning — which replaces the previous winter storm watch and means they’re pretty sure it’s happening — that says we’re looking at 10 to 20 inches of snow beginning Tuesday at noon. Temperatures are expected to drop from near-freezing into the upper 20s Tuesday night, and the winter storm warning is scheduled to last until Wednesday at 7 p.m.
This is a marked increase from this morning’s predictions of six inches or so. NWS warns that “The combination of snow and strong winds will make travel very hazardous.” As Han Solo said, “I’ve got a bad feeling about this.”
The Office of Personnel Management hasn’t made its decision yet on the federal government’s operating status for tomorrow.
