An area of low pressure, located east of the Delmarva Peninsula is getting stronger. As the system intensifies and moves away from our area, the rain and snow will end tonight. Skies will begin to clear later tonight and there is a good chance that temperatures outside of Washington could fall below freezing for several hours. That means slick spots and icy patches will be developing.
As high pressure rushes in behind the departing storm, gusty winds are likely tomorrow. And with that flow of cold, unstable air, flurries or sprinkles will be possible. It will still be quite breezy on Wednesday but there should be increasing sunshine during the day. Thursday and Friday will be partly cloudy and milder as daytime highs climb slowly into the 50s. The below average temperature trend will continue until Easter Sunday when the high may actually hit 60 degrees…that is the average high temperature in Washington on March 31st.
