Another storm tonight? According to the Washington Post, as of 3:30 pm, their confidence is low-medium on their forecast.

“The National Weather Service has issued a winter storm warning for Northwest Montgomery County indicating that heavy snowfall or ice accumulations are now imminent.” (National Weather Service)

The forecast reads: “Light rain develops between about 5 and 8 p.m., except light snow in our colder areas north and west of a line from Warrenton, Va. to Columbia, Md. Areas that have rain early on, mix with and change to snow by around midnight. Periods of snow are then likely through dawn, with the greatest coverage north of the Beltway where 1-3 inches or so could accumulate. Areas south of town may only see widely scattered snow showers with little or no accumulation. Overnight lows range from 30 in our coldest areas north and west to the mid-30s in areas south and southeast of the Beltway.”

The National Weather Service also warns about travel disruptions caused by ice and slow. They also are saying that power outages are possible.

According to a few predictions by Fox 5, it looks like Montgomery County may or may not be hit. If it is, it won’t be more than 1-3 inches of snow.

Will the prediction be right? If so, what will that mean for Montgomery College?
