PM Update: Some Light Overnight Snow?
Mostly cloudy and chilly end to work week on Friday
The warmth of yesterday has been replaced by much cooler temperatures, serving as a reminder that astronomical spring has yet to arrive. Morning sun gave way to increasing afternoon clouds as a small storm system approached. Highs in the mid-to-upper 40s will trend back downward this evening. And then overnight... could we see some snow?
Tonight: A weak storm passing mainly to the south may keep us watching radar overnight for the chance of a little snow. Right now the best chance for real accumulation (1-2"+) appears to be south of Fredericksburg and southwest toward Charlottesville, but some light snow is possible here, especially for D.C. and south. Lows around 30-35 and light snowfall rates would likely limit any local accumulation to grassy and elevated surfaces.
Tomorrow (Friday): After a risk of light snow in the morning (perhaps changing to rain before ending), we'll see plenty of clouds throughout the day, with maybe a few breaks of sunshine. Highs should generally make it to the low-to-mid 40s with light winds.

Potholepalooza 2009: Cold nights and warmer days lead to freezing and melting of trapped water below road surfaces. The result? Potholes. This year, super-hip D.C. Mayor Adrian Fenty, and acting director of the D.C. Department of Transportation Gabe Klein, have announced a month-long "Potholepalooza" aimed at encouraging commuters to report these nuisances. The promise? A 48-hour response time for fixing most potholes. CWG's Ann Posegate will examine the what, why and how of potholes next week.
