Look for a mostly sunny, breezy, and chilly Sunday with temperatures falling through the afternoon from the low 40s.

This Afternoon:
Mostly Sunny, Breezy, Chilly
Highs: 41-45
Wind: W 10-20 mph
Tonight:
Mostly Clear & Cold, Still Windy
Lows: 20-28
Wind: W 10-15 mph
Monday:
Mostly Sunny, Cold, & Breezy
Highs: 32-35
Wind: NW 10-15 mph

After three winter storms in one week, today's sunny skies and relative calm are much appreciated! 

The morning's low clouds and fog have dissipated, yesterday's storm system is rapidly exiting to the northeast, and we can look forward to sunshine, westerly winds gusting to 25 mph, and temperatures falling throughout the afternoon from the low 40s. 

A very cold night lies ahead as does the day tomorrow when highs will only reach the low 30s. But prospects are good for a genuine warmup later in the week.  Highs around 60 are possible by Friday and Saturday, ironically the official start of the winter season!

Rainfall tallies yesterday were generally around 1/2 an inch, while snowfall amounts varied widely.  Numbers ranged from a high of 5.5 inches in Eckhart Mines in Allegany County, to 3 inches in both Winchester and Hagerstown, to 0.8 inches in Purcellville in Loudoun County to just a trace at BWI Marshall Airport, Rockville, and Arlington. 

The next chance of rain comes late next week. Enjoy your Sunday!
