Winter Storm Watch for Sunday and Monday - up to 5 inches of snow possible...

Winter Storm Watch

From Arlington Alert:

"... Winter Storm Watch in effect from Sunday afternoon through
Monday morning...

The National Weather Service in Sterling Virginia has issued a
Winter Storm Watch for snow... which is in effect from Sunday
afternoon through Monday morning.

Low pressure along the Gulf Coast will move east tonight... emerging
in the western altantic near Georgia and South Carolina by Sunday
morning. The low will then strengthen as it moves north along the
coast Sunday afternoon and night.

Some cold air will be in place due to precipitation tonight. The
storm will reinforce that cold air. Plenty of moisture will be in
place too. Therefore... there will be the possibility of 5 or more
inches of snow.

A Winter Storm Watch means there is a potential for significant
snow... sleet... or ice accumulations that may impact travel.
Continue to monitor the latest forecasts."
