A few sprinkles or flurries will be possible this afternoon and evening but seasonal conditions can be expected for Wednesday and Thursday.

This Afternoon: Mostly Cloudy, Stray Sprinkles or Flurries

Highs: Mid 40s | Wind: NW 5 m.p.h.

Overnight: Mostly Cloudy and Cold

Lows: 27-33 | Wind: NW 5 m.p.h.

Wednesday: Morning Clouds, Sunny Afternoon

Highs: Mid 40s | Wind: NW 6-12 m.p.h.

Clouds will continue to affect the region this afternoon with a few stray sprinkles and flurries as well. There's still some pockets of sunshine south of D.C. where it is also warmer, closer to the 50 degree mark. Temperatures in the D.C. Metro should reach the lower to mid 40s. Tonight, cloudy skies and cold temperatures will be likely with lows in the upper 20s to low 30s.

Wednesday and Thursday will feature more seasonal weather with partly cloudy to mostly sunny skies and highs in the mid 40s. Friday has a fair number of questions with it as a coastal area of low pressure appears like it will develop and affect the region Friday morning through the afternoon. Currently, there doesn't appear to be enough cold air assoicated with the system for snow, but changes will be likely over the next 48 hours leading up to the event. Precipitation will be likely and we will continue to update the forecast as new guidance comes in.

The weekend ahead should be dry, with sunny skies Saturday and partly cloudy skies Sunday. Highs should reach the low 40s Saturday and upper 40s by Sunday.
