Temperatures will be the big story today as they reach near record highs (74 at Reagan and Dulles, 73 at BWI). Skies will begin to clear and winds will be breezy at times out of the south ahead of a cold front expected to move through later this evening into tonight. Tonight will continue to be mild with lows in the 40s to low 50s. Tuesday won’t be as warm with highs near 60 degrees under partly cloudy skies.

An area of low pressure will affect the region on Wednesday. At this time, it should start as rain in the D.C. Metro and possibly change over to wet snow later in the day. Little to no accumulation is expected in the D.C. Metro and points east as surface temperatures are expected to be above freezing the majority of the day. West of D.C., light accumulations will be possible, mainly points north and west in the higher elevations such as the Blue Ridge. We will be monitoring this situation very closely. Precipitation should end by Wednesday evening.

Thanksgiving Day will experience highs in the low 40s under partly sunny skies. Black Friday should be sunny and cold with highs only near 40 degrees.
