Snow-lovers didn't get a lot of flakes on Wednesday in the Washington, D.C., area, and by the weekend it will feel more like spring than winter.

A few snow flurries were spotted in areas including Front Royal and Leesburg in Virginia, Storm Team4 says.

A clipper dropped wet snow and rain in the D.C. area, but Wednesday is too warm for much accumulation.

Periods of light rain could continue into the afternoon amid temperatures about 40°.

Thursday will begin bitingly cold with lows in the 20s and 30s. Highs will be in the low to mid-40s.

The weekend will start warmer, but soggy — it could be nice for dining on a covered patio or holiday shopping with a trusted umbrella.

Friday will bring highs in the 50s, and light rain is possible by evening.

Temperatures will leap into the 60s and maybe 70s on Saturday — but there’s an 80% chance of rain. Expect a rainy and windy afternoon, Storm Team4 says.

Our next chance for a sunny day will come on Sunday with highs in the seasonal upper 40s, then expect more mild air and sunshine next week.

D.C. snow crews are preparing for winter weather because there’s a chance for snow in the forecast. Department of Public Works Director Christine Davis shares what to know about the District’s preparations.
