Rain and chills move into DC area

If you enjoyed the mild weather over the last few days, well, don’t get used to it. It’s about to get chillier — and stay there.

After temperatures in the 70s, the D.C. region will spend Wednesday in the 40s and 50s. With rain possible, Storm Team4 Meteorologist Amelia Draper called Wednesday a “grilled cheese, tomato soup kind of day.”

An area of low pressure is affecting weather for the next couple of days, according to Storm Team4 Meteorologist Mike Stinneford.

There will be a brief break from the rain Thursday before more returns Friday afternoon.

Frost and a freeze are possible across parts of the area over the weekend.

Storm Team4 Meteorologist Chuck Bell cautioned that May could be colder than average.
