Clouds are already filling into the region ahead of a cold front and this will limit temperatures into the 30s today.  There won’t be a lot of moisture with this front, but we should squeeze out some rain and snow by mid-afternoon with a quick exit mid-late evening. I’m thinking 3p-8p. Best chance of snow will be north and west of the metro where the advisory is in effect. 

Winter Weather Advisory through this Evening

Less than an inch expected but that will create slick roads. Some sleet and snow will mix with rain in to the metro at times, but with surface temperatures forecast above freezing, I only expect wet roads in town. High pressure will return tomorrow with some sunshine and cool temps persisting in the 30s. It will also very windy. Gusts of 30-40mph are expected with wind chill temperatures in the teens and 20s. Very cold air settles in Friday night into Saturday. Single digit wind chills will be widespread on Saturday morning with plenty of sunshine through the day. The next storm arrives on Sunday midday or early afternoon. I’m liking chances of snow on this one. The track of it should stay south of DC putting us in a more favorable position for it. Cold air will already be in place. It depends on exact timing, track, and how much warm air can draw in ahead of it… even if we start rain or mix, I think we will finish off with snow later Sunday into Monday morning. Still working out the details, so stay tuned to the Stormwatch7 Weather Team as that system develops
