An area of low pressure will develop off the coast today bringing some snow showers to parts of the area. A winter weather advisory is in place for Calvert and St. Mary’s counties starting at 5PM tonight and continuing until 6AM tomorrow morning. This is where we could find a few inches of snow-mainly in the southern tier of these counties. However, around the DC area, around I-95 and eastward, a dusting to 1.5” cannot be ruled out. Check out the latest on the snow here.  This will all begin this evening and continue into the overnight hours, wrapping up early tomorrow morning. Some school delays/cancellations cannot be ruled out as well. Temperatures today only around 20 degrees as winds settle down through the afternoon hours. Certainly chilly enough for all snow tonight, overnight lows falling into the teens. This should be a light fluffy snow and one that you can just brush off your windshield tomorrow morning but definitely will be able to stick to the cold roadways. We will clear to sunshine tomorrow as temperatures go up to the mid to upper 20s. We do have a wind chill advisory for the Shenandoah Valley and the Eastern Panhandle of West Virginia from Midnight tonight until noon tomorrow for possible wind chills 5 to 15 degrees below zero but not expecting very gusty widespread  winds. By Thursday, sunshine continues with temperatures in the mid-30s. On Friday, nearing normal, temperatures will climb to around 40 degrees with a few flurries and/or sprinkles in the forecast.
