Skies will gradually become cloudy tomorrow with highs warming into the low to mid 40s. The weather will have a fairly low impact on your day. By the late afternoon/evening hours rain showers will start to move into the area. Snow will start to mix in during the evening hours. Wet roads are possible for the evening rush but slick spots won’t be an issue, temps will still be too warm. Periods of wet snow will continue on Tuesday with some rain possible mixing in, especially south of Washington. Temperatures with this storm will be right around freezing especially in the Metro area and south. Therefore, a lot of what falls from the sky will melt but we will have to monitor snowbands that could set up and have snow that falling faster than melting. Accumulation looks to be about a coating to 2” in the metro area and south with 2 to 4” possible in the northern and western areas. If the low pressure system ends up tracking just a few miles farther north or south, that would result in changes of that accumulation, so Storm Team 4 will be tracking it quite closely.
At any rate, after this system, much colder air will take over for the second half of the workweek and stick around all the way through the weekend. Blustery conditions will lots of passing flurries for a few days and it’s likely that several days in a row we will stay below freezing.
