PM Update: Perhaps a flurry this evening then a chilly Friday

Clouds have raced into the region after a sunny start, capping high temperatures around 40 degrees. As a weak cold front pushes through the region this evening, we may see a few snow flurries. We see brief clearing Friday before more clouds late Friday and the dreaded possibility of a wintry mix Friday night.

Through Tonight: During this evening’s cold frontal passage, cloudy skies prevail and we might (20-30% chance) squeeze out a snow flurry or snow shower. The best chances of that are to the north and northwest of the District through around midnight. The most anyone might see is a light dusting - primarily out towards western Loudoun and Frederick counties. Clouds gradually decrease later at night, with lows 25-30.

Friday: We have at least partial sunshine in the morning, but more significant cloud cover returns to the region as the afternoon wears on. It’s seasonably chilly, with highs near 40.

See Wes Junker’s post for more on the possibility of a wintry mix Friday night into Saturday.
