Any hints of winter stayed well Northwest of DC today with temps just too warm to bring the flakes.
Temperatures: Upper 30s to Lower 40s | Rain: Any rain/snow ending
Lows: Around 30 | Wind Chill: Mid to Upper 20s
Highs: Low to Mid 40s | Wind: NNW 10-15
The wintery weather stayed clear of the metro today and only small accumulations near the Mason-Dixon line, much to the disappointment of this meteorologist awaiting the first snow. The average first date of measurable snow in DC is December 18th. Thanks to ABC7 meteorologist Alex Liggitt for looking that up. I shall have to wait. Hagerstown, Cumberland, Winchester and Frostburg all reported a dusting, but nothing really sticking on the roads. The low pressure system is pulling away and a few lingering rain/snow showers will be possible this afternoon in the cooler sector of the storm. It is a fast mover and we should be done by this evening and skies will gradually clear to partly cloudy conditions by Wednesday morning. Our viewers up north have sent a few photos of the snow. Here is one from Shane Beavers in Cumberland, MD. Notice the snow on the cars, but not on the pavement. A gallery of photos can be found on our website at www.wjla.com

High pressure moves in for the rest of the week. It will be breezy and cool Wednesday. But gradual warming can be expected the rest of the week and by Friday and the weekend, it will be downright nice out with highs in the upper 50s to around 60 degrees.
