Snow forecast through Tuesday morning

A Few Snow Stats:
On Monday, Jan. 25, 2021, snowfall was finally recorded at Reagan National Airport for the first time this season. It was a paltry 0.3", but that is already 50% of the 2019-2020 winter's total of 0.6". 

You have to go back almost two years to Feb. 20, 2019, to see the last 1" snowfall at Reagan National when 2.6" was measured. 

The last BIG snowstorm at DCA was Jan. 12 and 13 of 2019 when 10.2" fell with 8.3" of that on the 13.
