    More Snow Coming to DC Into Thursday Evening

    There is more snow to go from the nor'easter around Washington, D.C., Thursday afternoon and evening.

    Some locations may even experience thunder and lightning with the last batch of snow from the storm.

    A dry sweep of air moved up from the south at midday. However, another period of snow will spread from southwest to northeast across the area during the afternoon and evening.

    This new batch of snow can bring a few new inches of snow to some locations and can make roads that were cleared off slippery once again.

    Travel will be difficult and dangerous much of Thursday and Thursday night.

    The new snow Thursday evening will push storm total snowfall to 18 inches in many northern and western suburbs to near a foot around the city. A few areas well north and west can receive just under 2 feet from the storm.

    Enough wind is forecast to cause blowing and drifting snow Thursday night.

    The combination of wind and heavy snow can bring down tree limbs and power lines.

    Much of the region is expected to be free of precipitation on Valentine's Day, but travel disruptions may linger in the wake of the storm.

    Another storm moving in from the west can bring more accumulating snow during the first part of the weekend.
