Areas to the north and east of D.C. were hit with a mix of rain and snow -- and some accumulation -- Wednesday evening. Philadelphia was under a winter weather advisory and parts of New York saw heavy snow.

Storm Team 4 predicted the D.C. region would only see a few flakes, if that, Wednesday, though some wintry precipitation was falling in D.C. Wednesday night. The storm developed east of Ocean City Wednesday morning and intensified as it moved northeast toward the New England coast.

The District of Columbia government issued a hypothermia alert for 7 p.m., expecting temperatures to plummet to 33 degrees overnight. Johnson said windchill may drop into the 20s by tomorrow morning.

The moisture from the slow-moving coastal storm may lead to freezing and slick spots on the roads.

But a warm up is on its way, Storm Team 4 meteorologist Veronica Johnson said. A high pressure system will move in, and temperatures are expected to hit the high 60s, low 70s this weekend.
