An arctic cold front and an area of low pressure will combine to return winter weather to the area...albeit briefly. Clouds will steadily increase today ahead of these systems. Later tonight, we expect rain or rain and snow to develop across the region and continue overnight and into tomorrow morning. Temperatures will above freezing tomorrow morning so roadways should remain wet. During the day, as stronger winds deliver colder air, there could be scattered snow showers or flurries. By the time all precipitation ends, up to one inch of snow may fall well north and west of Washington...otherwise little or no accumulation is expected. Temperatures will continue to fall throughout the day. Sunday will be one of the coldest days of the winter. Skies will be partly to mostly sunny and it will be very breezy and very cold with highs only near 32 degrees.
Looking ahead to next week...another warming trend.
