D.C.-area forecast: From a winter chill today to springlike storms possible Sunday



A somewhat subjective rating of the day’s weather, on a scale of 0 to 10.

4/10: Winter is in the air with the chance of a morning snow shower and wind chills holding in the 30s.

  • Today: Partly cloudy, breezy, few a.m. rain/snow showers. Highs: Low to mid-40s.
  • Tonight: Becoming mostly clear, diminishing breeze. Lows: Mid-20s to low 30s.
  • Tomorrow: Partly cloudy and cold, lighter winds. Highs: Mid-40s.

We start the forecast period with a breezy winter chill today and maybe even a snow shower in spots this morning, and could end it with gusty springlike storms Sunday into Sunday night. In between, we’re cold and dry tomorrow with lighter winds, before a continued dry but milder Friday and Saturday with highs in the 50s to near 60.

Today (Wednesday): We’re looking at a partly cloudy, brisk and breezy day with a few early to midmorning rain or snow showers possible after a weak storm system passed through overnight. Temperatures start in the mid- to upper 30s this morning — so no snow accumulation expected — and only top out in the low to mid-40s this afternoon. A gusty breeze from the northwest, sustained around 10-15 mph with gusts near 20-30 mph, keeps wind chills in the 30s. Confidence: Medium-High

Tonight: Winds gradually ease during the evening. Skies become mostly clear during the evening and overnight with lows in the mid-20s to low 30s. Confidence: High

Tomorrow (Thursday): Another partly cloudy and cold day, but with lighter winds. Highs reach only the mid-40s with winds from the west and southwest around 5-10 mph. Confidence: Medium-High


Tomorrow night: Skies trend mostly clear again, with lows again in the mid-20s to low 30s. Confidence: High

Milder air moves in from the south and west Friday and Saturday, as high pressure sets up shop off the Southeast U.S. coast. That means partly to mostly sunny skies and warmer highs, in the 50s to near 60 both days with light winds from the south and southwest. Lows warm from the mid-30s to near 40 Friday night, to the 40s Saturday night. Confidence: Medium-High

Sunday continues mild with highs in the upper 50s to mid-60s. Hard to say whether showers arrive during the morning or hold off until afternoon. Either way, they could be heavy at times Sunday afternoon or night with gusty winds. Confidence: Low-Medium
