PM Update: Noquester to move out; wind advisory tonight; chilly and breezy Thursday

* Snowfall totals *

What was advertised to be Washington, D.C.’s first legitimate snowstorm in more than two years, more closely resembled the others in between: piddling and meaningless for the most part. The so-called Snowquester storm exits late this evening, but leaves behind strong winds and a chance of a re-freeze overnight in colder locations. Thursday is blustery, but sunshine returns.

Through Tonight: A mix of rain and snow tapers off from west to east between 6 p.m. and 9 p.m. with little or no acccumulation. But strong winds have prompted a wind advisory along the I-95 corridor and to the east for gusts to 45-50 mph. After precipitation shuts off, we’ll have slow clearing with lows right around freezing downtown with upper 20s in the colder suburbs.

Thursday: Some icy spots are possible in the morning, especially in locations that received accumulating snow, so use caution if you’re up and out early. Skies are partly sunny, with highs in the low 40s. Winds are from the northwest at 15 to 20 mph with some higher gusts.
