The temperatures have dropped to near average for mid December, but with an added breeze today, it feels mighty cold.  Especially considering we have been above seasonal highs most of the month.  The trend is changing and we will stay cooler into next week.  Plenty of sunshine today, but some added clouds this evening and an upper air disturbance moves overhead.  I couldn't completely rule out a stray snowflake or sprinkle southwest of the D.C. tonight, but sunshine quickly returns Friday.  We've been tracking that weekend forecast very closely and noted yesterday the southerly trend.  We are updating our chances of rain and snow and it's good news if you want it drier rather than wet.  The low will stay far enough away from us that there is only a 30% chance of rain/snow Saturday night and very early Sunday morning.  By the time you wake up on Sunday, it looks like it will all be gone with some sun by the afternoon.  Monday is now our better chance of rain.  However, that is still not a big storm.  The biggest one to watch comes for Christmas Eve up and down the coast could be travel trouble.  There is a surprising amount of consensus by the models on this already for a wet and windy Mid-Atlantic.  Stay connected with ABC7 online and on air for updates on the holiday forecast.
