Expect good travel weather for New Year's Day into the first part of Thursday.
AccuWeather.com meteorologists are monitoring the a storm in the Northeast from Thursday into Friday that can bring blizzard conditions to some areas.
If the storm organizes quickly enough, a light covering of snow could reach across parts of Virginia, Maryland and District of Columbia, while affecting areas farther north with heavy snow.
The storm will begin as rain or a wintry mix around Washington, D.C., Thursday, followed by a change to snow during the evening.
At this time an inch or two of snow and slush are forecast around the city with slightly higher amounts possible north and west. However, as temperatures plummet Thursday night, wet and slushy areas will freeze with temperatures dipping into the teens. Untreated surfaces could get icy very quickly Thursday evening.
Regardless of the amount of snow that falls around Washington, D.C., Friday will bring the coldest weather of the season so far and perhaps the coldest day since January of 2009 with a biting wind and RealFeel® temperatures in the teens and single digits.
