PM Update: Gray Skies Persist; Showers Tomorrow
Continued winter-like on Saturday, some p.m. rain
Wintertime conditions prevailed today after some light conversational snow this morning for D.C. and points south. Highs are only reaching up to the upper 30s and around 40 in most locations this afternoon while clouds remain entrenched in the region. Outside an isolated sprinkle or flurry prior to sunset, most places will stay dry and cold as we head toward dark.
Tonight: Dreary and sometimes damp conditions look likely overnight. Some trapped low-level moisture may produce spotty drizzle and fog as the night progresses. The bright side? Clouds will keep temperatures from dropping to extremely chilly levels. That said, lows in the low-and-mid 30s is still fairly cold for those looking forward to the warm season ahead.
Tomorrow (Saturday): More clouds, more cold and some afternoon/evening rain begin the weekend Saturday. By the middle of the day, showers should be approaching or into the area, and they look to continue into the night. Most area totals should be light, but we'll take whatever we get considering how dry we've been. Highs will only hit the low-to-mid 40s again -- spring is coming?

Snow Close By: Winter 2008-2009 and abundant snowfall in the mid-Atlantic. Something seems wrong with that statement, unless you live in the mountains of western Md. Wisp Resort is planning on keeping the slopes open late this year, into mid-April assuming no heat waves are around the corner. They are now at 112"+ and counting for seasonal snowfall. If you're still longing for a little snow, it's only a few hours drive away.
