Check the calendar, yep it's mid March.  Plants are blooming and snow covered them up in parts of the metro overnight and early this morning. 3" in Reva, VA about 2" in Winchester, VA and about 1/2" in Fredericksburg.  Thanks to Dave Rowan in Stafford, VA for the gorgeous photo that sums it up.  

Spring Snow

The snow is pretty much over for the metro.  We will have a nice break with cloudy conditions for the late morning and early afternoon hours.  The precipitation will return later this afternoon and evening, but it will be of the liquid variety.  The mountain tops out west may experience some snow and freezing rain, but the valleys, just rain.  The rain will continue tonight and become spotty for Tuesday morning.  it will all end when the cold front passes Tuesday morning, and then it will start to clear out with a brighter, but breezy Tuesday afternoon.  Temperatures will be cool all week.  Average high is 57.  We will be in the mid 40s to low 50s all week.
