Clean up is well underway after the D.C. area got hit by the biggest snowstorm in more than two years and one of the biggest spring snowstorms in the area’s history.
Storm Team4 meteorlogist Chuck Bell said Wednesday’s snowfall probably ranks in the top-10 for spring snowstorms, meaning snow falling after March 20.
Most of the area saw between 3 to 6 inches of snow, although the National Weather Service recorded more than a foot of snow in some parts of Frederick County, Maryland. All three D.C. area airports recorded at least 4 inches of snow as well, Dulles International Airport set a new daily record with 4.8 inches of snow.
