The prospect of a White Christmas has dwindled to zero percent across the D.C. metropolitan area, but if you are a snow lover and would like to see a few flakes, head west to the mountains of West Virginia.

As high pressure builds into the Mid-Atlantic overnight, skies will clear as temperatures fall into the upper 20s to middle 30s. Saturday will be filled with sunshine, although temperatures will only rebound into the lower to middle 40s. The Christmas Day forecast calls for a few added clouds, but milder temperatures. Afternoon highs will approach 50 degrees.
