A late winter snowstorm that canceled hundreds of flights has just about ended across most of the mid-Atlantic region.
“Anything that is lingering is real light,” said Calvin Meadows, a weather service meteorological technician in Sterling, Virginia.
Across the U.S., 716 flights were canceled as of 3:20 p.m. New York time, according to FlightAware, a Houston-based airline tracking company. Most of the scrubbed flights were at Washington’s Reagan National Airport.
Tonight’s low temperature in Washington is expected to fall to 27 degrees Fahrenheit (minus 3 Celsius), the weather service said. The snow in Washington will begin melting tomorrow as temperatures rise above freezing, Meadows said.
“High temps are going to get up to around 60s by Friday,” Meadows said. “It will be melting over the next few days.”
