WINTER STORM WARNING: area-wide though this evening.

Heavy, overnight rains continue to transition to a sleet/freezing rain mix and then to snow from NW to SE. Temperatures will concurrently fall, causing roads to deteriorate just before daybreak northwest and in the metro area after sun up. Once we achieve the changeover, it should come down heavy at times from mid-morning through early afternoon. It will reach our southeastern areas last. Winter storm warnings are up area-wide and a general 3 to 7 inches still appears likely with the potential for some sweet spots within. Expect lesser amounts far south east and possibly far northwest.

SNOWFALL MAP

Overnight, skies will clear and with light winds and a snow pack, I anticipate lows in the single digits to teens, which will break records at Dulles and BWI Marshall. Expect plenty of sun tomorrow, but temperatures will remain cold, near 30º. Partly to mostly sunny skies are on tap for the weekend, with highs in the upper 40s by Sunday. Don’t forget that we change our clocks at 2am on Sunday as we return to Daylight SAVING time. Stay close for updates and be safe today!
