Clouds will increase overnight as temperatures settle into the upper 20s to middle 30s. A few glimmers of sunshine will quickly succumb to clouds Sunday morning as our next weather maker takes shape to the west. Snow will start to fall by afternoon across the Potomac Highlands and Shenandoah Valley with elevation playing a key role in accumulation totals.

The forecast is a bit more tricky around the Beltway and especially in the northern and western suburbs of Washington, D.C. Understanding highs on Saturday were well into the 50s with some road temperatures near 60 degrees, it will be difficult if not impossible for snow to accumulate on roadways. Elevated grassy areas will see the best chance for some accumulation. The District and close in suburbs will see a wintry mix with very minor accumulations. Mainly rain will fall across southern Maryland.

Once this system exits the mid-Atlantic, temperatures will rebound by the end of the upcoming work and school week.
