Forecast: Cold PM Rain, Possibly Some Flakes

By Jason Samenow

Drying out Monday

Snow has been tough to come by this winter and today will be no exception. A coastal storm will bring rain to the region this afternoon and it probably won't be cold enough for flakes to fly until the storm is pulling away. Don't expect any problems heading back to work or school Monday morning as the storm will be gone and the ground bare in most spots.

TODAY

PM rain, possibly mixing with or changing to snow. Mid 40s. After a cloudy and cool morning, rain is likely to develop during the afternoon from the south. Early afternoon high temperatures in the mid 40s will likely fall towards 40 degrees by sundown.

Overnight, rain may mix with and possibly change to snow, especially north of the metro area. The precipitation should end between 10pm and midnight from southwest (e.g. Gainesvile, Va.) to northeast (Columbia, Md.). Low temperatures should range from 30-34. Little or no snow accumulation is expected. Note that if the storm develops more quickly than currently forecast, a burst of moderate to heavy snow could whiten the ground. The farther northeast you go, the higher the odds of experiencing snow.

TOMORROW

Partly cloudy and breezy. Mid 40s. Behind the storm it will be blustery, seasonably cold and dry. High temperatures should reach the low to mid 40s under variably cloudy skies. It will feel more like the 30s factoring in 15-20mph westerly winds.
