High pressure will remain in place just long enough to produce another spectacular day. As the center of that system moves out tonight, slightly colder air will move in. At the same time, a relatively weak area of low pressure will be approaching from the west. It is expected to pass south of Washington tomorrow but in the process may generate some light snow across the region. Temperatures will be above freezing at most locations meaning any accumulation should be on grassy surfaces, trees and rooftops. Right now, we are forecasting less than 1 inch of snow in the metropolitan area with a little bit more possible north and west and even less, farther south and east...you know the drill.
Sunshine will return on Thursday and Friday. Over the weekend, a strong cold front will pass through reminding us that there are still six weeks of winter to go before the Vernal Equinox.
