The snow will continue to fall as through the mid-morning hours as it begins to taper off to the and move to the south and east. Most of the snow to the north and west of the D.C. metro area has turned to flurries so trace to a dusting in those locations while the D.C. metro area and points south and east will still receive minor accumulations.


By the lunch hour most of the snow should be out of the area clearing to some sunshine by 1p.m. in spots. Clouds will move away and sunshine will continue to progress eastward across the D.C. metro area.



By this afternoon, winds will pick up out of the north and west, rolling at about 10-15 mph. This of course means wind chills that will be in the mid teens to the mid 20s (location dependent). Air temperatures today will be in the lower to mid 30s with some sunshine around! Still clear and cold overnight with temperatures in the teens! High pressure continues to build into the region tomorrow bringing more blustery winds. Plenty of sunshine Thursday with temperatures in the mid to upper 30s (but of course wind chill values in the 20s). Calm, cold and quiet on Friday with sunshine, light winds and temperatures not getting out of the 20s. A weak disturbance will pass through on Saturday that could bring some flurries/sprinkles to the region. Keeping our eyes on a system for Sunday night and through the day on Monday that could possibly bring a wintry mix to the region.
