Light snow possible Friday morning, could impact commute

WASHINGTON -

Possible light snow in the D.C. area Friday morning could present some issues for the morning commute for drivers.

As a weak storm from Canada scoots eastward, a swath of light snow and flurries will reach from the Ohio Valley to the mid-Atlantic coast into Friday morning.

The weak storm riding a wave of arctic air is the first in a series of systems rolling in from western Canada, known as Alberta Clippers.

The same system will ride the push of cold air to the East Coast Thursday night into Friday morning.

A couple of inches of snow can fall in parts of the Appalachians from near the Tennessee/North Carolina border to western Pennsylvania.

While the Appalachian mountains will screen out much of the snow from the Midwest, it can still bring enough for icy spots and areas of slippery travel for the morning drive Friday east of the mountains.

Metro areas that could experience wintry problems include Washington, D.C.; Baltimore, Md., Dover, Del., Philadelphia and perhaps as far south as Richmond, Va.

Snowfall of up to an inch could be possible.
