Fast moving snow possible Saturday; little accumulation expected

- Baseball is back and the cherry blossoms are blooming but that’s just not enough to make winter go away for good!

After being teased with a taste of spring the D.C. region is looking ahead at a possible snowy blast this weekend.

What we know so far is that the European Models show a rain, sleet, snow mix moving into the region during the Saturday morning hours. The precipitation looks like it will transition over to all snow around 1:30 p.m.

The relatively quick moving storm will wrap up around 7:30 p.m. Most models show approximately one to three inches of snow falling in our area. Most accumulation will occur on grassy areas.

FLAKE NEWS: Beware of Weather App Snowfall Amounts

FOX 5's Mike Thomas says we should be a little skeptical about high snow total numbers. The most April snow our region has ever seen was in 1924 when five and a half inches fell. That was also the last time (94 years ago!) we’ve seen over one inch of snow in our area in April.

Snow in April! Somebody tell Old Man Winter it’s spring!
