A chilly start to the week, with snow chances overnight.

This Afternoon:
Increasing Clouds
Highs: Mid-Upper 30s
Wind: N 5-10
Snow Showers
Lows: Upper 20s
Snow: Around 1" Possible, especially West
Early Morning Snow, then Clearing
Highs: mid 40s
Wind: S 4-8

Don't be fooled by our chilly Monday, as a big time warm up will invade the D.C. region for the rest of the week that will melt all of our snow pack.  Before we get there, we will add a touch to our snow cover overnight and early Tuesday.  Cold air in place will allow it to stick.  A weak and fast moving system in the Midwest, will arrive around midnight or so.

Areas west of D.C. could pick up a couple of inches, with near an inch in D.C.  Some mixing of wintry weather is likely in D.C. and areas southeast. Those spots will have little to none. More in Eileen's blog.  After the quick hit of winter, we start the warm up.  Temperatures will be near seasonal averages Tuesday in the mid to upper 40s. And we'll flip the pattern with highs well above average to end the week and a few spots could reach 60.
