Much Colder and Saturday Snow Squalls Possible

Overnight: Cloudy Rain Showers ending as light wet snow before dawn

Lows: 31-36 | Precipitation: 80% chance overnight

Saturday: Cloudy becoming windy and cold with passing snow showers and snow squalls 1-7PM

Temperatures: 40 to low 30s by evening | Snow: 1-2" in areas with snow squalls

Sunday: Partly Cloudy but windy and quite cold

Highs: 28-33 | Wind Chill: 10-20 degrees

The strong cold front is now into Ohio.  The timing of this front will bring very cold arctic  across the DC area tomorrow afternoon, now I think 2-7PM.  Before the front arrives we will have some rain showers or a mix or light rain and snow but with the front we are likely to see snow squalls and reduced visibility and local heavy snow for an hour or more.  Where these squalls do hit, a quick 1-2" snow is possible late Saturday afternoon and very slippery driving will happen very rapidly.  Be careful and be alert to local heavy snow squalls Saturday afternoon.  By Sunday morning temperatures will be in the teens and wind chills near 10.  Sunday a rare very cold day for this winter.  Milder air right back by the middle of the coming week
