PM Update: Quiet, sunny weather for Wednesday, finally...

After days and days of wild temperature fluctuations and flurry threats, Wednesday finally delivers some “normal” weather. We’ll have sunshine and seasonal temperatures in the 40s.

Through Tonight: A rain or snow shower is possible through around 7 p.m., mainly north of the District. Then, we have gradually decreasing clouds, with lows in the mid-to-upper 20s in the colder suburbs to the low 30s downtown.

Wednesday: Sunshine, for real! High pressure builds into the region with seasonably cool afternoon highs in the mid-40s. Winds are from the northwest at around 10 mph.

New England storm Friday: There is potential for a major to crippling snowstorm for eastern New England Friday to Saturday as a wave of low pressure rides up the coast and explosively develops. The National Weather Service office serving Boston discussion says the winter storm could be “very significant” producing a foot or more of snow. However, there is some model disagreement and such a big storm may not come together. For the D.C. area, this event looks like a rain producer, and we may just get grazed.
