It is a chilly one out there today! Plus we have an area of low pressure riding up the eastern seaboard bringing precip along with it. Temperatures at the surface in a lot of the region will hover right at the freezing mark but expect most locations from I-95 and east to rise above the freezing mark. With that being said, spotty freezing rain will continue through the day with other areas above freezing just experiencing plain rain. There could be a glaze for those spots that don't make it above freezing before the precip reaches them - meaning elevated surfaces could be a little slick. Fog and spotty drizzle settle in tonight the region tonight and a fog and mist with spotty drizzle around for your Tuesday. Temperatures on Tuesday move into the upper 40s so just expecting plain rain around the region. Then by overnight Tuesday into Wednesday, more rain headed our way - heavy at times through the day on Wednesday and we can't rule out an isolated rumble of thunder as temperatures rise to around 60 degrees! Everything should move out by the time Santa pulls into the D.C. area, overnight Christmas eve into Christmas Day. We will be left win winds but no rain on Christmas Day. In fact, clearing to partly cloud skies will take place! Friday and Saturday remain dry before another chance of rain moves in for the late weekend.
