"Storm Center4 meteorologist Tom Kierein said the storm is approaching from the west and could hit D.C. as early as 9 p.m. Thursday.
Some areas south of Washington will see a mix of snow and rain, Kierein said. But the area around the District could get anywhere from 2-4 inches of snow, mixed with rain. And Kierein said areas north of the city will see all snow and should expect anywhere from 3-6 inches.
A winter storm warning means severe winter weather conditions are expected. Significant amounts of snow are forecast that will make travel dangerous.
Officials say motorists should keep an extra flashlight, food and water inside vehicles in case of an emergency.
Thursday night's low will be about 25 degrees."
Twenty-five degrees?? THREE TO SIX INCHES IN THE NORTHERN SUBURBS?? Oh, THE HUMANITY.
Yeah, you could stock your car with food, a flare gun and a tire iron for beating away all the zombies emerging from the sewers as Hell freezes over. Or, y'know, you could just pilfer packets of hot cocoa from the office break room and put on a sweatshirt when you get home tonight.
After all, here in Washington we try our best to be levelheaded and not overreact to anything.
