Seasonal snowfall now over 10 inches

Snow totals Sunday morning across the region compiled by the National Weather Service. (.)

Here are the snowfall totals from the past five seasons:

2006-07: 9.5”

2007-08: 4.9”

2008-09: 7.5”

2009-10: 56.1”

2010-11: 10.1”

The complete history of seasonal snowfall totals for the metro region is available on the Nationa l Weather Service’s website.

Dulles Airport received just 0.1” from Sunday morning’s event, which, surprisingly, was enough to tie the daily snowfall record from 1983.

A map of totals across the region from Sunday’s event is displayed above. Generally, Capital Weather Gang’s forecast of a dusting to 1” verified. We erred slightly by overforecasting amounts to the southwest and underforecasting amounts to the southeast. Interestingly, totals around Bethany, Ocean City and Rehoboth Beach (not shown on the map) were around 2” - some of the highest in the region.

The question now becomes are we done with snow until next winter? Maybe not, as we anticipate at least a chance of some wet snow flakes Wednesday morning and perhaps again late Thursday night.
