    The March Long Range Discussion Thread, Winter's Last Stand

    PA likely has more potential for snow the rest of this season, but the majority of people on this forum appreciate all of your analysis. I stopped reading all the stupid posts yesterday complaining about the winter potential. That was absolutely ridiculous! Discussing snow potential is the reason people follow this forum! As if any of us can actually wish the atmosphere to snow by our discussion. If people don’t want to discuss or analyze, don’t log on. It’s pretty simple.

    It is beautiful outside. If we could stay dry and 60’s-70’s for the rest of March, I’d happily wait until November to start tracking snow again.

    That's the only March clipper I can remember. We got 8-12 I’ll never forget that one. Definitely an overperformer. I was 8 months pregnant and driving from Fairfax to GT hospital for a job (I’m an interpreter). It was pouring snow here but I called my office in Silver Spring and it was barely doing anything there. I think we had over a foot in some areas. By the afternoon it was over and the roads were already melting.

    March 8th Light Snow

    PWC is the one most likely to close for wet roads. I work in Fairfax, but doubt they would close earlier. They would have to decide by 10:30-11 am.

    This has been typical for a couple of years around here. We often go quickly from winter to summer and fall to winter.

    Why do we (almost) always have weekend rain or snow? This is getting ridiculous.

    Yay. Hopefully he won’t backtrack this time and ruin our chances.

    I’m originally from Waldorf, but always wanted to live in Fairfax as a kid because they had more snow than us. Now I’m in Fairfax and want to live in Loudoun! But I think Waldorf has had more snow than Fairfax in the past 3 years. They often do better with the southern/southeast storms.

    We’ve also had things get better as it gets closer in time. I guess lots of people were burned after getting rain instead of snow yesterday. However, I was in the rain the whole time, so I didn’t feel like I lost anything, other than dry ground.

    Some of us have missed most storms either north or south this year. We only got about 8” in the January storm too and nothing more than 2” since then. I’m all for Spring (if it’s actially warm), but March still has some opportunities in my opinion. So I would like to request a Miller A for next Sunday please.

    This has been a brutal couple of years of being on the rain/snow line in Fairfax County. The tendency has been for storms to shift close(either north or south) as we get to game time, but we sit just on the edge.

    At one point last week, we wanted to sacrifice the Sunday night storm for the Wednesday-Thursday set up around the 6th. Since the Sunday thing is weaker, Is there any chance for the midweek deal to come back? Or are we just chasing next weekend now?

    Not completely true. For the DC area, they said conversational snow changing to rain most likely, but they also said this could change and they will update this afternoon.
