The abnormally cold pattern we've had the past few days will come to an end Tuesday, with temperatures climbing into the low 40s by the afternoon.
It should remain above freezing tomorrow afternoon through most of Wednesday.
There will be an area of low pressure that will come from the south and move north through our region on Wednesday into Wednesday night.
Right now, the greatest chance of snow from this storm will be in the mountains; however, if the storm tracks a little farther east, there is a greater chance of some accumulating snow along the I-95 corridor from Richmond to Boston, including the D.C. metro area.
Because of the warm weather preceding the storm, the greatest likelihood now for us would be mostly rain during the day Wednesday, possibly changing to snow after sunset Wednesday before all precipitation ends predawn Thursday.
It's important to pay attention to the forecast in the next two days, because a small change in track will bring a huge change in whether or not we get a lot of snow.
