Sunday: Season's First Accumulating Snow?

* Trouble-Free Turkey Day Travel? Full Forecast *

Next Chance of Accumulating Snow: Sunday
Probability: 30%
Potential Impact:

Models show the potential for a storm system to develop to the south and take a track up the coast that ordinarily would be favorable for some frozen precipitation in the D.C. area. So why only a 30% chance of accumulating snow?

For one, the late-November air may not be cold enough to support a sustained snowfall. And this early in the game, there's still a decent chance the storm misses us entirely.

Still, the situation is worth watching, and is intriguing enough to warrant this season's first Snow Lover's Crystal Ball.

The Snow Lover's Crystal Ball appears when the potential exists for accumulating snow beyond 24 to 36 hours.
