Anywhere from 4 to 10 inches of snow fell across the Washington metro region Thursday, with the highest amounts in our northwest suburbs and the lowest downtown and to the south and southeast.

All three airports established new daily snowfall records.

  • Reagan National Airport received 4.8 inches – setting a new daily record for March 5, passing the previous record of 4.4 inches set in 1888 (when snow was measured at 24th and M streets downtown).
  • Dulles International Airport picked up 9.4 inches, a record for March 5 (crushing the previous record of 1 inch from 2001).
  • Baltimore-Washington International Airport logged 6.2 inches, besting its record for March 5 of 4.0 inches from 1902.

[It’s five minutes past March and we’re all waiting for spring]

Impressively, Dulles’s total of 9.5 inches marked the airport’s second biggest March snow day, and third biggest snowstorm on record, trailing the March 1993 superstorm, which dropped 13.9 inches, and 2014’s March 16-17 storm that totaled 11.1 inches.

Across the broader region, the highest totals within about an hour’s drive of the District were around Frederick, Md., where about 9 to 10 inches fell.  On the low end, downtown D.C. and scattered locations to the south reported just 4 inches. (Scroll to the bottom of this post for a comprehensive list of totals.)

[March is the new winter — record-breaking cold morning]

Here is a breakdown by region:

Northwest of the District: 6-11 inches


(NWS)

Northeast of the District: 5-8 inches


(NWS)

Southwest of the District: 5-7 inches


(NWS)

Southeast of the District: 4-6 inches

Forecast review

This forecast emerges as one of our best in recent memory. We more or less correctly captured all of the following: the onset time, the time snow would be the heaviest and roads most challenging, the snow amounts, the effects on schools and government operations, and the end time.

[If you can get through today, a warm-up is coming.]

A comparison of our forecast versus what actually fell is a close match:


Capital Weather Gang forecast map (left) and how much snow actually fell, right. (Jordan Tessler)

Our forecast totals were just about spot-on for the entire metro area.  The only location where our predictions erred a little was toward the Pennsylvania line.

I must concede the rain changed to sleet and, ultimately, snow much faster than I thought. I assumed the process would take a couple of hours, but in most spots it required just 30 minutes. (We wrongly accepted the NAM’s high-altitude temperature forecast, which erroneously extended the period of sleet too long.)

I was also surprised how long it took temperatures to drop below freezing inside the city once the snow started. It’s important for us to remember that downtown locations often have some challenges cooling and achieving snow accumulations during daytime March winter storms. Even though Reagan National Airport changed from rain to snow before 9 a.m., the temperature didn’t drop to freezing there until noon – reducing accumulation some (but still in the forecast range).

We provided plenty of lead time for this event, first mentioning the possibility of rain changing to snow Wednesday night into Thursday in our forecast early Monday morning. During Monday and Tuesday, we laid out the range of possible scenarios – before converging on the right forecast Tuesday night.

What makes me most pleased about this forecast is that we formed our general ideas about this storm on Tuesday, issued our first call accumulation map Tuesday night (at 11:40 p.m.) almost 36 hours before the first flakes and did not waver (our second and final forecast made Wednesday morning was unchanged except along the northwest periphery of the forecast map – where we unfortunately lowered totals and made the forecast slightly less accurate there). It was tempting with the various model fluctuations to change our forecast (both up and down) at times. But we analyzed the situation, came up with a forecast we thought made sense given the pattern and situation, and stuck with it – because we saw no compelling reason to make a meaningful change.

This is the second straight event (to close the winter perhaps?) where this kind of steady approach worked out extremely well for us.

[Review of Feb. 26 snow forecast and accumulations]

Overall, I’d give us an A- for this forecast. We welcome any feedback.

Forecast contest results

On Wednesday, we published a poll asking our readers and our CWG contributors to forecast National Airport’s final snowfall. So how did we do?

Justin Grieser nailed the forecast, with 4.8 inches! Justin is awarded with full bragging rights through next winter.

The reader poll made the correct call as well, with 43 percent of the nearly 8,000 respondents forecasting 4 to 6 inches at the airport. The next highest forecast was 2 to 4 – which was also close! Well done, D.C.
