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.
