Here's how much snow fell in DC, Maryland and Virginia

A coating of snow on grassy, elevated surfaces blankets much of the DMV.

WASHINGTON — The last of the snow is exiting the DMV early Wednesday morning. Most of the snow that fell melted upon reaching the ground. We were left with some light accumulations on grassy and elevated surfaces.

Out of extreme caution, some area school districts opted for 2 hour delays, out of extreme caution for the safety of students and roads.

Snow Totals

As of 6 AM, snow totals have ranged from a trace to an inch in the DMV. Most spots picked up a coating on grassy and elevated surfaces. This was in line with our final call for snowfall.

Snow blankets trees, grass, back decks, and cars, briefly turning the D.C. area into a winter wonderland.

In Front Royal, WUSA 9 Viewer Steve Campbell sent Howard Bernstein this photo of the snow coating the lawn, next to the candy canes lining the driveway. The pavement was just wet.

It was a similar scene in Frederick. A coating of snow on the grass and near the holiday decorations, but sidewalks were just wet.

Road Conditions Wednesday
Because of our unseasonably warm temperatures in the low and mid 60s Tuesday, road surfaces largely remained above freezing Wednesday morning in the metro.

Between 6 AM and 8 AM, a few locations are hovering at the freezing mark, so a few slick spots could develop on some area bridges and overpasses north and west of DC. This is part of the reason that some area schools decided to pursue 2 hour delays.
