* Winter weather advisory for Loudoun and Frederick counties, midnight to 11 a.m. Wednesday *
Under overcast skies, highs inched up to around 40 degrees this afternoon. Due to the persistent cloud cover and flow off the ocean, there’s not a lot of movement in temperatures into tomorrow. Tonight, the main concern is the possibility of some spotty freezing drizzle in our far western areas. Aside from that, a little front moving through the region Wednesday afternoon likely brings a period of light rain around the region.
Through Tonight: Cloudy, with a 30 percent chance of patchy light rain or drizzle after midnight. In some of the colder areas – especially in Loudoun and Frederick counties – light freezing rain or drizzle is possible. Use caution on untreated surfaces walking and driving late tonight and early Wednesday morning. Lows range from 30-32 in our colder suburbs to around the mid-30s downtown. Light winds from the northeast.
Tomorrow (Wednesday): Overcast in the morning with spotty drizzle or freezing drizzle (colder western suburbs) possible (30 percent chance). During the afternoon, plain rain is a good bet with highs in the upper 30s to low 40s. Rainfall amounts are probably around 0.1-0.2″. Winds are from the east at around 10 mph.
