    A storm blew through the D.C. area overnight, but it didn't drop much snow. After the storm, though, comes the coldest air of the season so far.

    Any snow that fell likely didn't stick as temperatures reached well above freezing Wednesday and Thursday, NBC Washington meteorologist Doug Kammerer reported.

    In anticipation of this small winter storm, the National Weather Service issued a winter weather advisory for parts of the Washington region until 9 a.m. Friday, including Frederick, Howard and Washington counties in Maryland and Berkeley and Morgan counties in West Virginia.

    The precipitation ended by 5 a.m. in the D.C. area -- before most morning commutes -- but bundle up when you head out Friday. Temperatures will fall throughout the afternoon. Wind chills could drop into single digits by the end of the day.

    Expect that cold to remain through the weekend. Kammerer predicted highs below freezing Saturday and Sunday.
