Grab the rain coat heading out the door. We're in for a chilly, raw, rainy day. High temperatures will be stuck in the upper 30s to low 40s. Rain will develop after the early AM rush between 8-9am. There may be a brief period of sleet for folks west of the DMV. Culpeper, Warrenton, Leesburg, and Hagerstown are the cities most likely to get a little wintry precip to start. Road temperatures are all well above freezing, so it will have a low impact on the roads. Still, it will be very wet today, so use extra caution out there. We'll end up with .75-1.00" of rain. The rain tapers off tonight with sunshine returning tomorrow.
Tomorrow will be brighter and warmer with highs around 50 degrees. Clouds increase, again, Thursday ahead of our next potent cold front. The front may bring us a few showers late in the day and, depending on the timing of the cold air, we could have a few snow flurries or snow showers. Nothing that would accumulate. The bigger story is the bitter cold that settles in Friday and Saturday. High temperatures will only reach the upper 30s. It will be quite windy, Friday, so wind chill values in the morning will be in the teens followed by afternoon wind chills in the upper 20s to low 30s with winds gusting to 25+ mph. The winds will diminish for Saturday, but it will remain very cold.
Temperatures moderate Sunday, but it will still be unseasonably cool. Highs will reach the mid 40s with a mix of clouds and sun. Milder air moves in early next with our next chance of wet weather Monday.
