Clouds will give way to rain overnight as temperatures dip into the 30s and begin to rise after midnight. Rain and patchy fog will slow the morning rush, but temperatures around the Beltway will be well above freezing. As the system moves eastward, skies will be begin to clear by late afternoon. Expect a wide high temperature range Monday, anywhere from the lower 50s near the Mason Dixon line to near 60 degrees south of D.C.

High pressure briefly builds Tuesday as temperatures reach about 50 degrees. Another round of unsettled weather may impact parts of the mid-Atlantic Wednesday and into Thursday. Models indicate a wintry mix likely, but much depends on the where and how quickly the system develops. Some may see freezing rain.

Finally, the upcoming weekend appears to be interesting with the potential for additional wintry weather along the East Coast. Details on this will evolve over the coming days and worth paying close attention to.
