Snow Day in RestonThe calendar says we are in spring. The forecast says it is really still winter.

Temperatures will remain more than 20 degrees below normal through Wednesday, forecasters say.

And we might get one more snow event on Tuesday.

Snow showers are expected to begin late Monday into early Tuesday. Reston could see a small accumulation of about 1 to 3 inches, says the National Weather Service.

Meanwhile, Dulles International Airport set a new low for March 24 on Monday, when the temperature plunged to 19 degrees. The old record 21, set in 1984.  This is the second record low set at Dulles this month (other date March 4, when it was -1 ) and fourth record low this winter (other dates February 28 and January 7, when it was 14 and 6, respectively.), says the Capital Weather Gang.

Last year, Northern Virginia also received measurable snowfall on March 25. In 1990, four inches of snow was measured at Dulles in April.

Even if it snows on Tuesday, the snow won’t be around for long. Temperatures will be in the 50s by Wednesday and the 60s by the weekend.
