A Winter Storm Watch goes into effect late tonight for areas far north and west of DC.
- Partly Cloudy, Less Wind, Not As Brisk
- Highs: Near 40°
- Wind: W 5-10
- Overcast, Wintry AM Mix to Afternoon Rain (Lingering Snow Far N&W)
- Highs: Upper 30s
- Precipitation: 80%
- Becoming Partly Cloudy, Breezy & Seasonably Cool
- Highs: Low 40s

Winds calmed overnight and with mainly clear skies temperatures bottomed out while you slept! Widespread teens make for a frigid start, but it will not be as chilly this afternoon.
Highs will peak near 40º under a partly cloudy sky. A storm system will mosey into the region Saturday morning possibly overspreading the area with a quick hit of snow.
By afternoon the metro and points southeast should change over to a cold rain as temperatures climb into the 30s. However, areas far northwest (think Martinsburg, W.Va. & Cumberland, Md.) may see prolonged snow and possible no changeover to rain.
