PM Update: Temperatures cool ahead of storm
Main wintry threat arrives late Thurs., continues into Fri.
Some light early-morning wintry precipitation aside, today was another calm one around here, but that's not going to last too much longer. Temperatures have cooled back toward normal, with highs only reaching the low-and-mid 40s across much of the area. After another potential round of light conversational wintry precipitation tonight, all eyes turn toward the chance of a more significant wintry mix late tomorrow into Friday, the possibility of which has already prompted a Winter Storm Watch well north and west of D.C.
Through Tonight: Clouds increase through the evening ahead of a weak disturbance moving in from the west. Some mixed precipitation (rain, sleet or snow) may try to sneak in between late evening and morning, though it should mainly stay south of the area. Lows fall to the upper 20s and lower 30s.
Tomorrow (Thursday): After some possible early-morning mixed precipitation in the southern part of the area, we should see a few breaks in the clouds before things trend back to cloudy as the day progresses. Temperatures will shoot for the lower 40s before additional wintry weather (rain, sleet and/or snow) begins to arrive during the late afternoon or evening.
California severe weather: The storm set to affect us late tomorrow and into Friday swept through Southern California with a bang yesterday. Though quick-moving, it produced heavy rain, uprooted trees and spawned at least one tornado as well as causing wind gusts up to 80 mph.
