We will be mostly on the sidelines as a winter storm brings a light mix of rain and snow later today.  Heavier amounts will likely fall well to the southwest of D.C. 

This Afternoon: Cloudy, PM Mix Rain & Snow

Highs: 42-46 | Precipitation: 50% Chance

Tonight: Rain.Lt. Snow Possible

Lows: 30-35 | Wind: N 10/Gusts to 20

Monday: Mostly Sunny & Seasonable

Highs: 45-50 | Wind: N 10-20

After the second warmest and arguably, most pleasant day this month - it hit 59 at Reagan National yesterday - today is cloudier, chillier, and ultimately,  more wintry.  A storm system that has brought copious amounts of rain to the southern states is taking aim at the midatlantic.  But with really cold air at a premium and no strong systems converging, the band of significant snow expected to develop should be confined to the mountainous regions of the Appalachians; central Virginia is, however, under a Winter Weather Advisory.  The relatively slow moving system will likely spread some light rain and snow over the Washington area late this afternoon into the evening hours.  Some changeover to all snow is possible as temperatures fall overnight.  Still, very little accumulation is expected locally.

The storm system should be off the Atlantic coast by early tomorrow with sunshine returning for the last day of the Presidents' Day holiday.  Enjoy your Sunday!
