PM Update: A delightful weekend ahead; New England gets buried in snow

Other than the wind, we didn’t have a bad day out there. A little chilled at times, though about what we should still be expecting at this time of March. Better yet, a nice early-spring weekend is ahead, with temperatures likely heading to near 60 by Sunday!

Through Tonight: Some cloudiness may linger in spots, as the outer edges of Snowquester still impact the area. Those clouds should generally diminish after sunset though, leaving us mainly clear eventually. Lows make the mid-20s in a few places to closer to freezing in the city. Winds slacken toward light as we head through the night.

Tomorrow (Saturday): Mostly sunny skies are the rule, as highs range from about 52 to 57. With lighter winds, it might feel pretty mild. Overnight, under mostly clear skies, lows dip to near freezing in the cold spots and around 40 downtown.

Sunday: Definitely a day to spend some time outdoors! Those early buds are going to be enjoying warmer temperatures and plentiful sunshine. Afternoon temperatures reach the mid-50s to low 60s. Winds remain light, shifting to the southeast as the day progresses.

Northeast snow: If you’re a snow lover in the D.C. area, Snowquester has played yet another cruel joke. Much of north and northeast Connecticut into Massachusetts has picked up 1 to 2 feet of snow as the storm which impacted us on Wednesday meanders around off the coast off New England. Worcester, Ma. has now had two top 10 snowstorms this winter. Even to the southwest, New York City received a few inches as well. Everyone gets snow but D.C.!
