Update: Snow chances sliding south

If you have plans this weekend around the D.C. area and points north, you may not want to change them just yet.

We've been mentioning for a few days now the possibility of a snowstorm for late Friday into Saturday, but that whether it snows, and how much, would depend on the storm's track. One of the scenarios we've discussed is that the storm could track too far south for the metro area to see much snow.

As it turns out, with the exception of a blip here and there, computer models have now been fairly consistent over the past 36 hours or so with keeping the heavier accumulations well to the south, toward central Virginia and the Virginia-North Carolina border. And in fact, some of the model output indicates the chance of no accumulation at all around here.

Of course, there's still time for things to change, but at the moment it looks like accumulations (if any) for D.C. and vicinity would be on the minor side, probably not much more than a few inches, and would most likely occur between Friday evening and Saturday evening.

Stay tuned for more updates tomorrow. And see our full forecast through the weekend.
