A cold front and an area of low pressure may combine to bring rain, then snow to the area.

TODAY: Increasing cloudiness. Showers possible before sunset
Highs: Mid 50s
Wind: SW to NW 5-10 mph

LATE TONIGHT: Rain to snow. A trace to 1 inch...mainly north
Highs: 29°-35°
Wind: North 5-15 mph

TOMORROW: Windy and cold with flurries or snow showers
Highs: 37°-41° (feeling colder though)
Wind: NW 10-15 mph

SUNDAY: Partly cloudy, breezy and colder. Flurries or snow showers
Highs: Low to Mid 30s

Clouds will steadily increase today as a cold front approaches. Showers will likely develop late this afternoon in advance of the front. Much colder air will follow the frontal passage but will lag behind by several hours. An area of low pressure is expected to intensify along the front as it passes through the mid-Atlantic. This low, plus the arrival of much colder air will cause snow showers or bands of snow to affect the area overnight. It appears accumulations will be rather low...ranging from a trace to around an inch. Most of that is expected on grassy areas north and northeast of Washington. Depending on the evolution of the low pressure area, more measurable snow could fall on the Eastern Shore.

The weekend will be blustery with some sunshine, gusty breezes, snow flurries or snow showers and highs only in the 30s. Temperatures will reach the 40s on Monday under sunny skies.
