What at first seemed like it would be a dusting of snow ended up being a fairly significant storm.

The National Weather Service issued a winter storm warning for Montgomery County and the surrounding area at 9 a.m., which is in effect until 1 p.m., although snow stopped falling in the Bethesda area around 10:45 a.m.

The weather service, which said Monday we should expect about an inch of snow, upped the forecast to between 4 to 6 inches of snow Tuesday morning.

Temperatures are expected to remain in the low 20s, according to NWS.

Already the storm has closed county schools and caused significant traffic problems on roads throughout the state.
