After temperatures in the 50s today under sunny skies, changes will be likely tonight through tomorrow with snow in the forecast.

Overnight: Increasing Clouds, Cool

Lows: 30s | Wind: NW 4-8 m.p.h.

Wednesday: Mostly Cloudy, Areas of Light Snow

Highs: Near 40 | Wind: NE 4-8 m.p.h.

Thursday: Mostly Sunny, Cool

Highs: Upper 40s | Wind: NW 4-8 m.p.h.

As high pressure moves out of the area, cloudiness running ahead of a storm system located in the Tennessee Valley will spread across the region later tonight. During the day tomorrow as this system continues to move eastward, there is a high probability we will see snow and or rain across most of the area. There is a chance the metro area could see an inch or so accumulate mainly on grassy areas. Roadway surfaces are quite warm so most of the snow falling on those surfaces will melt. The farther north you are from Washington the better the chances of seeing around 2 inches of snow. And the farther south you are from Washington, the better the chances will be of seeing mostly rain.

On Thursday, its back to sunshine with warmer temperatures. Sunny and mild temperatures will be enjoyed on Friday. Over the weekend, another cold front will arrive with gusty winds, colder temperatures and scattered snow flurries.
