Cloudy, Areas of Rain Likely
Highs: Near 60

FREEZING RAIN ADVISORY in effect from 3 am through 9 am Friday morning for the entire area.( except Southern MD and the Northern Neck)

Tonight.... temperatures will head below freezing at the same time an area of light rain moves into the region. That means the possibility of freezing rain and that is why the advisory was issued. We do not expect a lot of rain but you only need a little rain on untreated surfaces with temperatures below freezing to cause icing issues.There could be a little light snow early in the morning well north and west of Washington.

During the day, temperatures will slowly climb above freezing and we will just be dealing with plain rain. Hopefully, that will happen by mid-morning but could take a bit longer…especially north and west of D.C. Rain and much warmer temperatures will be the weather story on Saturday as a strong push of moisture and gusty winds precede the next cold front. Skies will clear on Sunday with gusty winds. The winds will tend to be westerly, that should allow afternoon temperatures to climb into the lower 50s in many spots. Partly cloudy and mild weather will continue through Monday.
