D.C. area forecast: Colder today with more gray than green; wintry mix/snow possible tonight

It may look similar outside today as it did yesterday, but it’s a good deal colder once you get out there thanks to a chilly wind from the north. That northerly wind plays a big part in the forecast, combining with an approaching storm to threaten a wintry mix tonight into early Monday. A bit of accumulation is possible especially north and west of D.C., before changing to intermittent rain showers during the day tomorrow into early Tuesday.

D.C. area forecast: Murky March weather pattern next few days

If you like warm March sun and clear-cut weather forecasts, well you may not want to read any further. A generally unsettled pattern sets up shop for the next few days with plenty of clouds and occasional showers. Yet, much of the time rain may be light and spotty. Some snow or sleet might mix in Sunday night into Monday morning.

D.C. area forecast: Chilly and breezy ahead of possible midweek winter storm

Today and tomorrow have that winter feel thanks to a blustery chill. Winds let up by Tuesday as we turn our attention to the Tuesday night into Wednesday night storm threat. Might we be looking at a winter wonderland with this one? Well, a good amount of precipitation looks increasingly likely. How much of it is wet versus white remains a major question, but it’s easily our best shot at significant snow in more than two years.

D.C. area forecast: Brief taste of spring today; trending cold into weekend

If you’re craving spring like I am, today is the day to get outside. It won’t be super-duper warm, and might be breezier than some would like, but partial sun and temperatures at least well into the 50s are as nice as we’ll see for a while. Tomorrow begins a cooling trend and by the weekend we’re back to highs in the 40s with a bit of a wind chill.

D.C. area forecast: Becoming sunnier and warmer before Tuesday storm

Much improved over yesterday’s cloudy drizzle-fest! A drier air mass moves in today with increasing sun. The down side is a gusty wind from the northwest that adds a chill despite warmer highs. Sunshine sticks around through Monday, but our next storm moves in early Tuesday and may start with a light wintry mix.

D.C. area forecast: Today’s windy chill doesn’t get much better tomorrow

As we head deeper into February with March just around the corner, warmer weather can’t be too far behind. But for now through at least the end of the work week, winter cold is here to stay, made worse by today’s chilling winds that ease only slightly tomorrow. Besides a flurry or snow shower today, our next chance for precipitation waits for Friday into Saturday.

D.C. area forecast: Rain showers today may change to a little snow tonight

Hopes for snow lovers are down again, though not completely out, with no significant snowfall on the horizon. Meanwhile, I’ve got bad news for those who would like to hang on to the relatively mild temperatures - a cold front is poised to put an end to them in time for the holiday weekend. At least there’s no big storm to disrupt travel locally.

D.C. area forecast: Monday morning rush looking wet; could midweek storm bring anything white?

Our weekend closes on a high note today as partial sun doesn’t have to compete with whipping winds. Things head back downhill late tonight as rain showers arrive and threaten a soggy Monday morning commute. By midweek we have another system moving our way. Could this one be more white than wet?

D.C. area forecast: Nicest day of the work week today; late-week wintry mix?

It seems the seemingly endless supply of flurry or dusting-producing clippers has indeed come to an end. To mark the occasion, we get to enjoy one day of soul-warming sun today before clouds increase again tomorrow. Thursday night into Friday brings the threat of some mixed precipitation, and then the atmosphere calms down again for the weekend, when highs could flirt with 50 by Sunday.
