The cold front  sweeping towards the coast is taking the rain out of the area but is also taking the unseasonably warm air along with it.

Tonight:
Gradual clearing and breezy
Lows: upper 20s to upper 30s
Wind: North 10-15 mph
Christmas Eve:
Partly cloudy, breezy. PM flurries lpossible
Highs: around 40 degrees
Wind: NW 10-20+ mph
Christmas Day:
Mostly sunny and seasonably cold
Highs: middle 30s
Wind: Light

The cold front that ended our incredible stretch of warm, December weather also delivered a lot of rain to the area. The front and the rain are headed to the east. Skies will clear tonight and it will become breezy and much colder than we have seen in a number of days. Tomorrow will be seasonably cold with partly cloudy skies. During the afternoon though, a fast moving upper level disturbance will cross parts of our region and we may be treated to a few snow flurries or perhaps, a few heavier snow showers. We do not expect any accumulation since the ground has been so warm for such a long stretch. If you get a heavier snow shower, it might briefly whiten grassy areas. And I should note the farther south of Washington you are, the better chance you may see a few sprinkles or rain showers. In any event, it won’t be much but it could brighten the holiday spirits for those celebrating Christmas. High pressure will build back across the areas Christmas Day and Thursday with plenty of sunshine. More sunshine is in our Friday forecast, as well.
