A cold front will bring the chance for showers tonight but what about the possibility of snow tomorrow?

Tonight: Mostly Cloudy, Showers End, Breezy

Lows: 50s into the 40s | Wind: WNW 10-20 m.p.h.

Friday: Mainly Cloudy, Breezy & Cooler, PM Mix South

Highs: 40s | Wind: NW 10-20 m.p.h.

Saturday: Mostly Sunny, Cool

Highs: Mid 40s | Wind: NW 8-12 m.p.h.

A cold front lies to the west and southerly winds have brought in some very warm air ahead of it with highs at 60 degrees so far at Reagan National Airport. This evening into tonight, a few showers will be possible as the front moves into the region. Temperatures will gradually fall through the 50s and into the 40s by the early morning hours. Winds will also be gusty at times out of the northwest.

Friday will be a bit cooler, with highs in the 40s and gusty winds. Another disturbance currently over southern portions of New Mexico will move east and affect the region Friday night. The majority of the energy should slide just to the south of D.C., but the northern portions of it may skirt by our Southern Suburbs such as Fredericksburg and Southern Maryland. A light wintry mix may be possible in these areas overnight into Saturday morning though no accumulations appear likely at this time. Here is what Meteorologist Chris Naille and I are thinking as far as the cold front and snow potential.

 

The weekend will feature clearing skies and cool temperatures Saturday. Highs should reach the mid 40s. Sunday will see more of the same and potentially even colder temperatures in the low to mid 40s under partly sunny skies.
