Temperatures will remain cold over the next 7 days with multiple chances for snow showers and flurries.

Partly Cloudy and Cold
Lows: 6-12
Wind: SW 3-5 m.p.h.
Partly to Mostly Cloudy,  Flurries Possible
Highs: Mid 20s
Precipitation: 20%
Mostly Sunny and Cold
Highs: Low to Mid 20s
Wind: W 10 m.p.h.

Even though temperatures were more than 25 degrees below average today, the brilliant sunshine, salt and chemicals melted the snow and ice from many roadways. With temperatures plummeting overnight, icy areas will be a major concern…and a continuing concern on the roadways that did not experience melting today.

Another upper level disturbance associated with the next cold front heading this way will bring clouds and gusty breezes back to the region. Flurries and even more organized snow showers could develop during the day. The temperatures will turn a bit colder again on Friday under mostly sunny skies. Yet another disturbance will affect our area on Saturday with mostly cloudy skies with scattered flurries BUT temperatures could rise just above freezing during the afternoon. Sunday will be partly cloudy with afternoon temperatures again above freezing during the afternoon. Then another disturbance could bring flurries or areas of light snow late Sunday night. Hey…it’s winter in Washington!
