Expect to have to bundle up in the D.C. area on Wednesday. Some snow flurries are possible to the west of the city, toward Luray, Winchester and the Shenandoah Valley.
We'll have a high of 40 degrees and low of 31 degrees in D.C. Wednesday. Temperatures are expected to remain in the low 40s to low 30s through the rest of the workweek.
Storm Team4 is tracking a storm system that's expected to move east across the country this week. It's still too early to know for certain how severe an impact it could have on our area.
"Some computer models are putting out over a foot of snow," Meteorologist Amelia Draper said.
But there's good reason to stay tuned to see how the forecast develops.
Six to eight days from a potential storm, it's possible to see a pattern. Four to five days out, different scenarios come into view. Two to three days out, meteorologists have a better idea of the timing and impacts of a storm. And one to two days out, professionals know how to advise residents to react, zone by zone.
What is certain now: There's a lot of cold in the forecast for this weekend. Temperatures are expected to be in the 20s and 30s.
