The National Weather Service has upgraded the winter storm warning to a blizzard warning. The new warning takes effect at 10 p.m. tonight and continues until 10 p.m. tomorrow. The winter storm warning will remain in effect until 10 p.m.
A blizzard warning means wind gusts will exceed 35 mph, snow is likely to be extremely heavy, and visibility will be reduced below 1/4 mile.
The NWS says secure all loose objects on your property, since this dangerous storm is expected to produce record snowfall for the Washington D.C. metropolitan area.
Travel conditions tonight will be extremely hazardous and life-threatening, and all citizens are urged to remain indoors.
